The answer is:
a. Very difficult
b. Very easy
Why is it very difficult?
Because you don’t have the skills and the tools to work at home.
Why is it very easy?
Because you have the skills to work at home. Skills you need depend on the type of work you want to do. Most important is because you have the tools to venture into ‘work at home’ type of jobs.
To be able to work at home as a writer, you need to be a strong writer. Many people want to work at home. Some of you might want to be a designer, a freelance accountant and even a blogger.
You can do anything you want to do, as long as you know what you are doing. For example, you cannot be a writer if your skill is only in designing. You cannot be an accountant if you only know how to do coding. The point is ‘know what you are doing’.
If you want to be a writer but you are not sure how you can sell your writing, first of all, you will need to learn about writing. Read up about writing. Practice your writing. Soon you will be able to write for money. The same thing goes for designing, accounting or even blogging.
Do you have the tools?
Do you have a PC or laptop?
Do you have internet connection? It can be from TM, DiGi, Maxis, Celcom or P1.
Do you need a phone & fax line?
Do you need to have a webcam? Most laptops have webcam.
Do you need to install any messengers? YM? MSN? Skype?
If your answer is mostly yes, you are partially ready to work at home.
If your answer is all yes, you are definitely ready to work at home.
If your answer is all no, and you have no idea what they are, then you are probably not suitable to work at home.
