The second is in regards to interruptions. I have found it absolutely amazing that family and friends seem to think that just because you stay a home during the day that you have nothing else to do. When I first started working at home I was surprised at the many requests my family and friends had of my time. My best advice, which was given to me by another home business worker, is, ‘If they are not on fire or if they are not bleeding they do not need your attention.” Now don’t take the statement literally but what it basically means is, unless it is a real emergency do not let your family and friends interrupt your work schedule.Many workers are just plain scared. Job security is fast becoming a myth. People with 20 years of service in big companies now get unemployment benefits. Government employees are being laid off. Others work two jobs just to make ends meet. And millions feel trapped in dead-end jobs they are afraid to leave.
