Most people opting to work from home today are women. It was the case always but was earlier restricted to house wives who never took up a daily job. Now women are quitting daily full time jobs and are opting to work from the comfort of their homes. This phenomenon can be attributed largely to the Internet.
Working from home is attractive for many organizations as well as they can save office space and probably other utilizations like electricity. The employees don't have to waste time commuting and time saved on transport can be spent with the family. Plus there are no time constraints of work other than deadlines.
Working from home includes work from many fields. Internet marketing attracts many women as it pays a lot and almost always requires no investment. And with the advent of social networking, it is a lot easier to find people and talk to them about a product. One does not have to scorch the sun and burn the tarmac to get clients. Opportunity to project a product is only a click away.
Writing is another major attractor of women. Much of the web's content is written by women. There are many avenues for writing and there is something for every style of writing. The job is well paying and brings immense satisfaction in having contributed to somebody's learning.
Most women write articles for other products or they are helping update a blog. Both these kinds of writing pay well and can be enjoyable.
Working from home need not always involve computers. Other kind of work includes event (vacations, parties etc) planning, skilled based work like designing, pottery, or for that matter any thing else. As long as the zeal to be enterprising exists, working home is fun.
