Part-Time Job-Shopping While Building Your Home Business
By Christopher Bachler

A new home-based business might not get off the ground so quickly. While you’re building and waiting, you might need to find some alternate ways to cover your costs. Even after your business takes off, you might still need additional income strategies for the slow times. In short, you might need to nail down part-time work, or add some home-based services in addition to your normal line of work.

For example, a person who normally works from home as a writer or editor for publishing houses might look at other available avenues when the publishing industry is sagging. She might look for alternative sources of work, such as for ad agencies, large corporations, or even small local businesses. She might even shift to such mundane work as handling business correspondence, or even seek any available part-time work, even outside her normal line of work.

These options are easier than ever since so many companies are hiring people to work part-time from home. The reasons are many, but they mainly relate to costs and difficulty in getting the right people to come into an office on a regular basis. In addition, technology now makes “telecommuting” a much easier option than it once was.

Part-Time Preliminaries
Try to pick something part-time that won’t conflict with your ordinary business. For example, if the work is much the same and you are good at it and don’t tire of it, fine. If, on the other hand, your ordinary work is creative, you might be wise to take on something that doesn’t overtax your creative faculties. Naturally your focus should be on getting something you can do at home. But that might not always be possible.

Also think about picking something part-time that might be useful to your home business. For instance, a woman who makes dresses from home might pick part-time work where she might meet potential customers, such as in a department store. Or a landscaper, during the off-seasons, might take work at an office complex where he might be able to pitch his services to the complex owners for the brighter months, or even line up individual customers among the people who work there.

The number of part-time jobs you could take at home is limitless. Just search the job sites or use your imagination. But it might be helpful to get a heads-up on some of the more popular or common positions of this kind. For example, a recent article published at the popular job site, CareerBuilder.com, listed 10 good jobs for home-based workers, including:

• Administrative assistant
• Advertising sales agent
• Computer software engineer
• Corporate event planner
• Copy editor
• Desktop publisher
• Data entry clerk
• Insurance underwriter
• Market research analyst
• Paralegal

• Billi...
