Is a work at home opportunity the answer?
Is being an independent worker, or being self-employed the answer?
As innovation increases, several forces are changing work. These forces are causing work to be disrupted, unpredictable
Full-time and permanent work is reducing and being replaced by work that is part-time, casual, temporary, agency, shift work and permanent-temp or permotemp.
This is creating under-employment, unemployment,
casualization and job insecurity.
Those that are under-employed are undertaking often extensive unpaid activities to simply retain
access to jobs and decent earnings. Such continuous activities can be exhausting and can include continuous training, self marketing and networking.
As innovation continues, there will be more and more pressure on full-time jobs.
More than any other time, you are in the hands of others as you work, and as you seek another job. Others make decisions about your continued worklife.
It all sounds quite dismal, but ...
You can take advantage of these forces.

Decision maker - perhaps for me the most satisfying was to make and enable my own
decisions. My own boss. Magic!
Disadvantages include ..
Time - you need to manage your own time
Space - finding the right space to set up can be an issue. Libraries are excellent!
Personally I have always found a space.
