For caregivers who can't keep up with the rat race
Posted Sep 07 2008 8:38pm
Estimates are that 60% of those who provide care for their loved ones and friends, work outside the home. Yes, that's you Baby Boomers!
The ongoing struggle to balance work responsibilities with caregiving eventually exacts a toll on most caregivers.
For caregivers on the verge of leaving the rat race, there's an option.
Enter Rat Race Rebellion, a website dedicated to leaving the rat race, for a selection of work-at-home opportunities.
Some are dynamic job opportunities, like being an artist for Oatmeal Studios (now, that's full of fiber!) or being a traveling trainer (see Consultants & Subject Matter Experts) for the National Seminars Group (oops, that's a work-away-from-home opportunity).
Some job leads are for building your reputation instead of your pocketbook. Still, if you're really leaving the rat race and want to remain connected until you return to paid work, building your reputation makes sense.
Check out Education, Teaching & Tutoring. Imagine, you could be enjoying a respite in Hawaii, while tutoring for a few bucks to get another Mai Tai!
With the long weekend approaching, surf the 'net for some at-home work opportunities.
