A flexible, commute-free lifestyle is a dream for so many of us, and it’s not unattainable. Perhaps 20 years ago the ability to work at home seemed far fetched and only available to a privileged few. However, times have changed. There are so many ways one can make a living from one’s home office, whether it’s telecommuting full time for a national brand, freelancing or consulting, or even starting a home-based business.
There’s a problem, though. The web is saturated with “work from home!” and “make money online!” websites that don’t do more than suggest things you can do to work from your home office without offering practical tips and advice for achieving your goals, or they list “jobs” that are nothing more than a penny a word freelance writing jobs or taking surveys for a dollar. After visiting a job site, you should never have to research whether or not a job is “legitimate,” and earning less than minimum wage isn’t a good enough trade off for working from home.
That’s where Telecommunity comes in. I want to fill the void and fix what’s wrong with most “work from home” sites. Yes, I’m going to share job leads here, but I’m going to share the kinds of leads where one can really earn a living. Mixed in with ob listings we’re going to share tips and advice for landing telecommute opportunities, as well as ideas for staying productive in a remote environment, and working with clients or as part of a distributed team.
I’m also going to share the tools you need to stay productive and focused, work with you on time management, and share ways to market you as a professional business person.
This blog isn’t called “Telecommunity” by accident. I hope you’ll share your own tips and advice for profitable and productive telecommuting too! Please don’t be shy about sharing in the comments, on our Facebook page, or via email to deborahng(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thanks for dropping by! A little about me:
I’m a freelance writer, published author, and social media consultant specializing in online community development. I blog about books Books & Chardonnay. I especially like to geek out about book to film adaptations – One of my favorite things. If it’s your thing too, I hope you’ll join me there.
When I’m not writing, my favorite things are nagging my family, vacuuming dog hair tumbleweeds from my tile floor, and climbing mountains of laundry.
Just kidding! I love none of those things!
I’m always up for a good bingewatch, passionate about books, and my famous sangria brings all the boys to the yard. If you’re looking for me, try my back deck where I can be found enjoying a meal with my family, reading a good book, or just counting my lucky stars.
