An article “Working From Home” on NST today


While having my coffee break this morning I grabbed a copy of New Straits Times (NST).  The front page is about How Anti Corruption Agency (ACA) nabs 28 Puspakom Officers and 19 runners.  They we all arrested on suspicion of accepting bribes. Then I flip to the classified page and here is the title that interest me, “Working From Home”. In case that you did not have a chance to read about this, I will share the summary here.

The author says, “Home based business has become a popular alternative to earn a primary or secondary income. If you have a good idea and are willing to work and learn, it can be rewarding and a great joy. In Malaysia, the usual jobs available are selling insurance, multilevel marketing, giving tuition or baby sitting. Other alternatives are customer service, telemarketing, internet marketing, writing, proofreading, recruiting, graphics design and photography (which you can find in jobs section of 1Klassifieds)”

Then the author added, “These jobs are usually part-time, commission-based or pay per project”.

A spokesman said the idea of working from home is it must be accessible and has no time constraint, turning your leisure into money. “In 10 to 20 years, things will change. Going to office may not be such a feasible idea due to rising cost of fuel, traffic jam, emotional stress, frustration, not to mention the prospect of your boss staring over your shoulders, on the other hand, by working from home you can be with your family and friends”, he added.

Generally there are many benefits of working from home. Firstly it gives you a sense of flexibility to adjust your work schedule to the needs of your family. Secondly, you will find work that matches your likes, skills, experience and training. It also gives the term ‘multitasking’ a whole new meaning. Instead of just working on your computer and talking on the phone, now you can feed your baby, write business letters, or throw the garbage.

Starting a home based business is more affordable than most people think. For example, if you turn a hobby into business, you do not have to worry about big start up cost. Other benefits are: There are no storefront or office to rent, no additional phone lines to pay, no extra utility expenses, and no furniture to buy, which adds to your savings.


Guys, before you jump into the bandwagon or before you quit your job, consider to read this first, on starting your own business from home. Working from home can be a fun, exciting, and rewarding experience. Best of all you get to pursue your hobbies, get plenty of free time and extra cash in hand.

Just make sure your home based business is one that is still in demand ten or twenty years from now.
