Once you understand the basics of working from home, if you decide that telecommuting is for you, the next challenge is finding a legitimate job. I have worked from home since February 2016 for several companies. Finding a legitimate job is hard, but not impossible. Here’s how to avoid the scams and find a job that suits your equestrian lifestyle.
As I visit with other equestrians at my Tucson horse boarding facility, one topic that frequently comes up is working from home. I’ve worked from home as a W-2 employee and a 1099 contractor since February 2016, so this is a topic that I’m very familiar with. For many people – equestrians or not – telecommuting appears to have the perfect work-life balance. They picture the flexibility to work when you want, ride when you want, and magically balance parenting with everything else (See How to Balance Parenting and Riding Without the Guilt to see how I hold it all together.) Is this too good to be true? Here’s what you need to know before you decide to leave your job and start working remotely.
