Which one do you prefer to work, at home or in the office? Do you think work on line is nice and safe? How much money did you earn from online? Everyday or month? And is work on line better than work in an office? So what about you, do you want to be your own boss or still wanna be the worker of a boss? Yeah it's all up to you and you can decide it right now and choose your way to be success. Everything is possible in internet too, like in this site right? OK. If you have a good site that can earn much tell me will you.

Hi there! I have been working at home as a freelance writer for about 5 years now. I wouldn't change it for anything. I am my own boss and I write for a few different content sites. I average anywhere from $75 (on a bad day) to $200 (on a good day). This of course, came with experience and the ability to type fairly quick. Thanks for the discussion!

For me I would definitely say in the office. I would go stir-crazy if I coulidn't leave my house. I like interacting with others, and while it would be nice to work in your pajamas and at home, and in front of the computer, eh, It's not something I would want to do everyday. I like dressing up and socializing. But that's just me!!

i prefer to work from home actually... the problem is, it is so hard to find online job and the pay is also not enough... that's why i can only treat online job as an extra income and not the main one... i hope one day i can earn enough from online so that i don't have to worry about doing real work... take care and have a nice day...

Well i think it all depends on what your profession is. But of course there are pros and cons on both sides. When you're working from home you are your own boss, you have control over your earnings and expenses, you dont have to wake up in the break of dawn, then rush to work + you'll save more money by not using public transport :). But working in an office will surely give you a better income, you get to meet people, and you'll gain many new experiences. But then again it really depends on the job you want :).

Working from home or in office has both pros and cons. If you're working from home, it's good because you handle your time and no ones gonna require you to work this time and it's also good if you have a family because you can be with your family all the time. Meanwhile, the disadvantage of this is that, you are not sure if there's always a job or how long would it take to have a job. And also when you work from home, you don't have a fix salary which means sometimes there's much to earn and sometimes there's little or nothing at all. Working in the office will surely give you a monthly income. You can also socialize because you're gonna get friends in the office. There would be a lot more benefits when you're working with a company. The cons is, you can't handle your own time. You have to go to an office everyday and be there for 8 hours a day or more. Personally, what I do is to get an office job and have an online work or home based work as my part time job. This way I am earning more. But I know a lot of my friends who gave up there office jobs and concentrated on their online jobs. I didn't do that because it's risky though I don't have my own family yet.

If there is a legit site that pays me fairly for the amount of work I put in, then for sure I would prefer a home based job. But, there is not many around, so I will still continue my office based job and uses the home-based as a supplement for my income.

I get an feeling to work in office and without disturbance. Working from home lot of obstacles. Working in office is better than working from home. We have to complete all chores in the house and then start working online. Moreover, looking after the family and working online from home seems difficult sometimes. But leisure time working is a good option.

Work at home pays very heavily-you suffer no pressure, you programme yourself, you are the boss of your self and generally you worry about punctuality because you can choose to work for long hours or short tme!

On a day like this when it is really cold outside and where I have to get up early to remove snow from the car, I sometimes wish that I were able to work from my home, but I don't earn much money online compared to my job in the real world, so that isn't really a realistic option for me. One of the things that attracts me about online work is the freedom. I like the idea of being my own boss and planning my own work, and it would be nice to be able to work anywhere as long as I have access to the internet.

Hi cool, I would prefer to work at home online. Sadly I haven't got the chance: I have yet not found the ideal site to work in. Some sites offer small incentives that cannot cover even for monthly electric bills at home. Most online sites are designed to con those who are unwary. Most online jobs are not available in my place. I would gladly do so, if I can find one.

Hi, I have no experience working at home but I would like a job like that one day. I have always worked in a hospital or facility so I'm used to always working in an environment filled with people. Hopefully I'll get to hear from one of you guys about a work at home opportunity because I would really want to try how that is like. It sounds very convenient but you may have to dedicate more than 8 hours a day to earn.
