    *working from home?/freelancing*

    Discussion started by WebsterUno - May 19, 2004

    do any of you guys work from home?
    if so, how is it working out for you?
    I was considering quitting my job,
    and going freelance. do any of you
    do full time freelance? i have major
    responsibilities at home, and would like
    to spend more time there. plus, after 6 years
    i hate my job now, and i never really liked
    working for the man. i was also considering
    getting another job, but again, im tired of
    working hard to put money into someone
    elses pockets, only to get a pinch of the pie.

    man i wish i could work from home...that would be nice.

    i'm too lazy too look for a freelance job, plus i think if you freelance, you gotta figure out your own taxes or something like that so the IRS doesn't bother you.

    what do you do anyway?

    Currently what I'm doing, and it's a rollercoaster ride. Right after the summer upon arriving in PR jobs fell out of the sky, I filled myself up to the brim, to the point I almost bit more than i could chew. It wa awesome... I had to work a lot, but the freedom is unparalleled.

    Right now it's a dip, I'm finishing up most of the projects I had and have to get on the ball to find more stuff for this summer. I'll probably look for a permanent position after the summer, but for now I would like to have this gig going steady... it's just too unpredictable.

    *believe*

    nah, no envelope stuffing...
    or phone sex operating..haha.

    im a graphic designer/artist.
    ive done a lot of things, and i dont
    see why i cant do it from home.
    ive done billboards, costumes,
    newspaper ads, magazine ads,
    graphics for a jetliner, casino chips,
    and currently, im creating a
    balloon that is to be put up in a
    raceway. with the technology
    available today, (phones, fax machines,
    dsl, and my mac at home) i feel
    confident i can do what i do from home.
    i have my own office already.
    i do things for people at home,
    and have been getting a few offers,
    but my full time job is the thing
    thats is getting in the way of me
    taking on those jobs. its hard to work
    full time, then come home and
    work more, when there are things to do at home.
    if i worked from home, it would
    all get taken care of. im also about
    to finish up with a few t-shirt designs,
    and im hoping those will give me a boost.

    what do you do g-sushi?

    i work construction. the freelancing crack was a bad joke, because it's 10:45 on a wednesday, i'm sitting in bed with my laptop posting on 12oz, and i have a chemistry class in three hours. i did, however, just send a bunch of emails to prospective clients trying to set up meetings, so whatever.

    the coup and dead prez rule my existence.

    (you replied while i was too.)


    thats what im scared of.
    but, i live in the heart of the silicon valley.
    there is a lot of work around here.
    from business cards, to magnets
    for the side of your truck.
    man, i can do it all. just give me specs.
    like i said though. my job kinda
    sets me back from tackling more outside jobs.

    if paisas means day labor, then occasionally, but i usually just pay my broke ass friends to help me do some hauling and dump runs. the guys that hang out in my neighborhood looking to get work are totally awesome, because they all just go to the bar next door to me at the end of the day, so i can give them a ride to the bar and then they don't drive anywhere while totally loaded. it's like a good deed, but i'm getting paid for it. i work by myself 95% of the time. i do handyman and fix-it shit, not full-scale remodeling. i ain't got no contractor's license.

    it pays the bills while i'm in school because it gets padded by financial aid. when not in school i work in the trades full time, but not on my own.

    What kind of things can you do from home to make loot? We pretty tight on cash these days so I was thinking maybe I could do some sort of e-business to help momdukes out with the money. Give me some ideas.
