Work From Home’s Better Angels

Posted on February 7, 2011

If you are fortunate enough to work for a really good “work from home” company then it can be like living among the Angels.  When I take assignments, I meet the most amazing supervisors and co-workers I have ever had.

Today, I met a young man in the southern states who is only 30 and has MS.  In our same training session of only about 9 people, we had a woman of about 50 who also had MS.  Both had aggressive forms of the disease.  They were wonderful – we all were wonderful as 9 people instantly bonded.

We are good at customer service so you could say it’s no surprise that we have sensitivity to the needs of others that make joyous moments of discovery  like these possible. It was like being part of a miracle when these two people discovered their shared burden and our care for both.  Only in Cyberspace could two former Ohioans now suffering from the same disease hook up today at 3:00 PM EST.

This kind of work makes for different experiences and some bad accidents like the time a colleague forgot to press the mute button and….  It’s nice having a supervisor in Kansas, tech people in India (we have a great group there) and coworkers from all over the US and Canada.

Happily the number of reliable companies hiring work from home employees is growing.  It is a wonderful opportunity for people who are housebound for ANY reason or for people who just want to stay home.  Cyberspace is a great place to be when you are in good surroundings with good people – like all the individuals who make this little blog thrive.

Let us  hope for all the people it could benefit that work from home continues to grow as an alternative for employment.
