One company that hires telecommuters is UHaul. They are looking for home agents making $8/hour. No college degree required and all training and work is done from your home office.

While talking with people about telecommuting, I come across a good number of folks who don’t have decent internet access. Maybe they live in outlying areas that don’t have DSL or Cable available. Well, I just found out about satellite internet providers. Maybe I’m behind the times on this, but it never occurred to me to look at this option. I mean, really – dial up can drive a person crazy. Do you all remember the early days of AOL and waiting…waiting…waiting for pages to load. There are still people who have to deal with that! Even in remote areas, you can get some great satellite internet deals. Equipment can be leased or purchased and the monthly fees are reasonable. Some of the deals right now even include rebates.

Yep, that’s been my day. I realized things were getting messy and it was taking too much time to find things. So now my files are back in order and I’ve set up a handy-dandy tickler file to keep track of things. It’s really one of the best inventions. Here’s a great link that shows you how to set it up and use it Tickler File. Trust me, you won’t regret it. Staying organized is one of the most important parts of working from home, I think. When you work where you live, if your work is cluttered you just can’t get away from it. Fall is a great time to purge a bunch of stuff, throw things away, or get some file boxes to put away stuff you need but don’t refer to on a regular basis like old tax...
