Working from home

      2 Comments on Working from home


From the beginning I have only thought about money, being financially independent.

I started earning officially in 2008 as a freelance writer. My first pay of Rs 500 is still pending, the publication house NEVER bothered to pay and I never bothered to stay there.

I should call it my BAD LUCK because wherever I worked turned defaulters on most of their bills, and paid me after 6 months of quitting the job. The money which freelance writing gives is not LUXURY but definitely essential for the expenses.

I always thought I got patience in genetics but no I was so WRONG. The companies for which I worked and didnโ€™t pay me for months together are the REAL people behind the loads of patience I have now in me. Waiting and I go hand in hand.

I donโ€™t even now remember when was the LAST time I took money from my parents for my use. I have my brother (RICH is his prefix) who is always ready to help me but I canโ€™t keep asking him for money, because I am someone who has been paddling my own boat CLOSE to 5 years+.

I thank my STARS I donโ€™t have to pay house rent, or my car loan because these 2 very basic requirements of life are my OWN. I never had a credit card, because credit card companies donโ€™t offer their cards to people with no fixed income and I never took their calls anytime. I live on my debit card, and so, I am never in arrears. My banker never forces me to have a compulsory balance as I donโ€™t have an account in any international or private bank. Nationalized Indian banks are fine with Rs 1000 as minimum balance which I always endeavor to have.

Working from home has its own perks than an office life. I work in my shorts or pajamas, I donโ€™t have to bother about my looks, itโ€™s not obligatory to be presentable. I donโ€™t have to think about etiquettes. The amount of freedom and time which is REALLY important to me is agreeable but youโ€™ll get screwed up with the money. PEANUTS I must say.

I donโ€™t regret quitting my full time job as an assistant editor, all I was told to do was to write thank you emails to subscribers, event producers and financial supporters. This was NOT the kind of work I was looking forward to do in the position of editorial assistant.

I am ALWAYS in search for new writing/editing projects, anyone who needs help, is reading this; please donโ€™t shilly-shally to get in touch with me.
