Although one has to put in the same affort and hard work while working from home,I have noticed that people donot take you seriously when you tell them,"I work from home or I work online'.

yes, they do - it is becoming more and more widely accepted in corporate america and a lot of companies are now offering it as part of their benefits. i work from home occasionally and my company provides for all connections and links in order for you to be able to access the network remotely, icnluding laptop computers for most jobs. in my former job, it was more encouraged for you to work from home, everyone has a laptop instead of a desktop. that's because the managers believe that it is good for morale, more environmentally friendly - saves gas (especially in these days of high oil prices), less carbon dioxide emissions, less traffic on the roads- it also saves the company on overhead expenditure, less power consumption, conserves on office space. the discipline of working from home really stems from your inner determination in accomplishing your work.

I agree because that's what I think too. Perhaps if I can make enough it might change the way I look at workign from home. I do know that they are people who make a good living working online but for some reason, I just don't take the phrase seriously. Perhaps there are too many scammers using it.
