Types of Home-Based Workers

Home-based workers, regardless of the product or service they are providing, fall into three general categories - business owner, telecommuter, or freelancer / consultant / contractor. We've gathered information, tools, and resources for each of these areas, and you'll find them by clicking on the links below.

We suggest that you take some time exploring each of these three areas -- you'd be surprised how often the "perfect job" turns out to be something you might never have thought of!


Owning your own business is not right for everyone, but for those who are entrepreneurially minded, a home-based business can be a great alternative to "traditional" work arrangements.

You must have a product or service that others will want to purchase, a marketing plan to reach your prospective buyers, and the business know-how to make everything run smoothly.


Telecommuters are generally employees who complete all or part of their work from home.

As with all employee / employer relationships, these home-based workers take full direction from the company they work for and, while they may have some autonomy, company policies still apply.

On the plus side, telecommuters may be eligible for
company benefits.




Like many home-based business owners, freelancers and independent consultants are self-employed.

Freelancers often sell services rather than products, though home-based product sales (particularly via eBay and similar outlets) are increasing as well.

Writers, artists, IT specialists, proofreaders, consultants, and other people with specialized "knowledge worker" skills often bill themselves as freelancers.
