    Doing a survey for having a member to do at home work or projects.





































































































































































































    A survey about having a trusted member to do at home work for you.

    Can you think of anything that you would have done,this is question.

    I am not asking for myself, i'm asking to survey about any at home

    needs you may have. Think about your needs or service that may

    help you.

    No problem. You realize there's an "edit" button though, right? :p

    With all that space I was sure it was some sort of joke and expected a punchline. :)

    Joey makes a good point, distractions make it difficult.

    I work at home occasionally doing my paperwork and it isn't easy and it's probably more so with young children.

    If you're going to work from home you have to be disciplined and have an area free from distractions. A shed at the bottom of the garden would probably work?

    What sort of home working are we talking about here?

    Oh...and the best way to earn a night sleeping on the sofa is to lock your home office door and insist that your wife makes an appointment to nag you about taking out the trash!

    Say you have curcuit boards that need parts replaced or repaired and you are busy.

    You ups them to a member that will do the repairs and send them back.

    maybe a member could make boards to your spec's. you have to be a busy man

    to do this.You could have a new member that needs help. Think about it.

    How it could work for you. I am not asking for myself.

    This is something I think about constantly. I have not only the perfect space for a home office, but I also have the perfect lab space, about 1000 square feet. Almost everywhere I've worked needs more lab space. Although I haven't done a detailed analysis, I believe I would make the effort financially viable by renting needed equipment on a short term basis. Problem is, I've spent my life learning how to make things work, and not how to build business relationships. I'm more of a prototypical engineer, I lock myself away from people to do my work. Works for engineering, but not so much for business.

    One interesting pattern is engineering firms are contracting out more development and design work these days. Economics dictate that many firms cannot keep full time staff, so many engineering service companies are springing up. Not only foreign firms, but many domestic ones as well. I've interviewed with a few of these firms, and it seems they have grown rapidly and outgrew the home office. By the time they are hiring, they are just another corporation, so they are offering just another button down job. If you want to stay home ( as I do ) you have to walk a tightrope between growing too fast, and growing fast enough to stay in business.

    There might be a few retired folks who need extra work to stay afloat.

    It would be interesting for smaller companies to contract them for special work, knowing they have an expertise in a particular background of electronics.

    That way you get quality work and help out someone here at home. If they already have an income, but fall short each month, they should be able to contract at a fair price.

    Why waist a qualified older individual able to stay in the workforce. Just cause your old doesn't mean your dead.

    You've been dropping your keyboard an awful lot lately, Loosie. Do we need to come over to your house and duct tape it to your desk? :D:p
