Humble beginnings

I’m writing this exactly 1 hour before starting my work shift. I’m sipping on some half-caf coffee, trying to avoid the caffeine headaches that will come in Ramadan. (The Muslim’s Fasting month in which we fast from ingesting anything during sun up to sun down hours) I’m not rushing to find work clothing, stressing about having to stop for gas or worry about the rain on my commute. I want others to experience this for themselves. I want people to find their niche or place on their terms. The peace that comes from finding a job that you love, don’t have to commute to and actually offers a paycheck isn’t measurable alHamdulilah.

A no scams, nor making people buy or pay for things; REAL work from home DOES Exist. I see so many people in a bind, needing a way out and falling for scams.
Yes, it takes work to find a real work-from-home job. Yes, it’s hard to find something you can do, takes long hours of searches, resumes and answering the same questions on applications. But it’s worth it.
I’ll share a few sites with you so you can start your long search and repetitive application filling (hey, it DOES take work)

A note for the wise: Working from home/Searching for work from home is just as time-consuming and Needing Professionalism, time and effort as outside jobs! This is for all of you willing to put in that work to find something. You have to do your research, you’ll be doing a lot of reading, applying, researching companies and trying to find out if it’s a fit for you. These websites not only shares LEGITIMATE work-from-home ads but also tips to avoid falling for scams. Enjoy! Now remember it’s just a site with listings, they CAN’T answer job-related questions. You have to go on the site and read or call/message the actual company that’s hiring with your questions.

Now remember this blog post and many of the links to jobs are simply sites with listings. I nor they answer job-related questions. You have to go on the site and read or call/message the actual company that’s hiring with your questions.
Happy Searching and I wish you the best inshaAllah

My go-to stop. This is always the 1st place I check. Even now, gainfully and happily employed alHamdulilah; I still check their postings out for friends and to share with others. There are literally HUNDREDS of postings on their site: Rat Race Rebellion

The next site is a forum. Here is where you’ll go for advice, tips, and how-tos in this exciting new world. Click HERE to sign-up.

The following site is also promising. It took really long to find how to market myself on there, learn the ropes and search. My page was mediocre at best. I had to edit, add all my experience and really focus on the wording. When I did, I actually had employers seeking me! It still shocks me. Their website was formerly known as ODesk. Now their name is UpWork.

Being Supportive

Sometimes we confuse being supportive for agreeing with and helping others through decisions WE like or think they should take or avoid. They don’t always listen, sometimes what we think is best isn’t actually best for THEm and sometimes it is and they just don’t take heed.

We have to be VERY careful in confusing being supportive for “forcing” ourselves on others as there usually isn’t a one-size-fits-all choice in life. Also being supportive, and loving of a person doesn’t always means supporting bad choices or endorsing them. It can be a simple smile, and a big DUA (prayer) for them. It means that even if they makes choices for their life you wouldn’t, can’t, or don’t like you still are kind, helpful, polite, and prayerful for them.

In the end they may have made a GREAT choice for their life and Allah knows best. What I’m trying to say is just because someone disagrees, or is in a bad place, or made a different choice then we would have or what we like doesn’t mean it is always wrong, just different. We can’t bully people around for their decisions but we can help them in goodness, kindness, duas, patience and being there for them.

Being supportive means being there for them–not being a nag at them. Some choices in life are horrible for us, but Great for another, our EXPERIENCE with certain choices or individuals doesn’t mean that is someone else’s experience with it. Anyhow just a little bit of reflections, self needed reminders, advice and tips also known as growing pains 😉
