Working Online Can Be Exciting

Knowing that you will be your own boss can be wonderful but scary too.

Sometimes it is Nice to Get Help From Others

I don't want to see people start out by themselves in the big world of online marketing. Working as a team brings results.

Together We Can Be Successful

Online marketing is overwhelming for many, but as a team we can build with our ideas put together. Following what has been proven to work for others.

Success Can Be Yours

You have to work for it and it won't come overnight, but success can be yours if you really want it!

Let Me Help You

Join my team and we can build together. I will help you succeed.

Welcome to Dawn's Work at Home Blog.

Hello and welcome to my blog! I have been online for over 10 years now. During these years I have seen a lot of scams that have taken a lot of money from many people. I started this blog back in 2007 to help prevent people from falling for these scams. A lot of good people lose a lot of money with the promises of instant riches. I want you to know that unless you win the lottery or something similar, there is no such thing as instant riches. You have to work for it but you can find success online when you work to achieve it. It will never be instant so please never believe in such claims.

I share different opportunities and tips. Tho most of what I share is free, it should be assumed that I am an affiliate meaning that I may be compensated in some way. I will only ever share legitmate tips, advertising and companies that I have experience with but please note that I may be compensated if you join with me.

London Prepares for Remote Working

As London prepares to receive the Olympic torch, the capital’s businesses are preparing to put business practises in place which should help to ensure that commerce and public transport will not grind to a halt during the games.

London’s top financial firms, particularly those based in East London have been encouraged by the Cabinet to implement remote and flexible working practises to alleviate travel congestion during the Olympics. The transport network is expected to be flooded with excited tourists, so to ensure that businesses continue to function over the summer, many are implementing new work procedures including remote working, staggered starting times and flexi-time.

The transport authorities in London want to reduce the number of commuters using public transportation during the Games by 30 per cent. They hope this will help to ensure that the transport network can cope with the massive influx of visitors. It means more remote working and altered shift patterns for many of London’s professionals. Companies based in Canary Wharf are likely to be most impacted, as it is just three miles from the Olympic Park.

But it’s not just financial firms who are gearing up – many civil servants are also being encouraged to work remotely during the games. It led to the Daily Mail accusing civil servants of receiving “a gold medal for skiving” for being allowed to telecommute for the summer. There were also concerns from some business leaders about the amount of useful work which can be done by civil servants under the policy.

Despite the evidence that remote working can boost productivity for many individuals, many are sceptical about it, concerned that it will have a negative impact on the country. Research by the Trade Union Congress has found that there’s been a 25 per cent increase in the number of people working from home over the last ten years, to 3.8 million.

The TUC has been urging business to trial new working practises including flexi-time, remote working and working from home. The research also revealed that 20 per cent of those who are not permitted to work from home would like to do so. Despite technological advances and the evidence that remote working is more productive, employers are still reluctant in trusting their workers.

The Olympics is a great opportunity for employers in the capital to implement flexible and remote working practises. Specially designed hardware and software is available to allow managers to accurately monitor home workers, as well as to communicate with the team and provide access to up-to-date documents and data.
