Freelance Careers for the People Person

Working freelance can be an excellent way to take the reins of your career, to be self-sustaining, and to build a business that you reap the full benefits from in time. However, a common issue faced by many working for themselves is a sense of isolation and loneliness. A lot of freelancing involves spending plenty of time without human contact, so here we’re going to look at the careers that put you in touch with others to make use of those people skills.

Virtual Assistant

Though can do it from home like many other freelancing careers, the difference in being a virtual assistant is that you are always constantly helping someone else. Usually, these are business owners who will interface with you regularly to allocate work and ask for help on admin and organizational tasks. Some virtual assistant roles will require you to answer the phone and put on your best demeanor, good for those who like front-facing roles.

 

Nursing

If you already have nursing experience, then you could already be more than halfway to a fulfilling freelance career. Care homes, hospitals, and many other establishments will hire temporary nurses, giving you the opportunity to travel around the country and work with a broad spectrum of people. The more experienced you are, the more your services will be in demand, so an online family nurse practitioner track could really open up your options. If you’re in it primarily to care for patients, a lot of freelance nurse work can involve private duty care which means spending more time with individuals.

Social media
Socializing isn’t all face-to-face. This is a fact of life that many businesses are becoming more aware of as they look to social media as their next great frontier. If you have a little network savvy about you, then you could learn about social media marketing and apply that growing expertise to businesses who are looking to expand online. More and more businesses are jumping online and need people who already know the formats and know what works. There’s a great sense of fulfilment to concocting a strategy and watching a community grow thanks to your efforts, as well.

 

Teaching

Do you have experience teaching or some expertise in a field of study or industry that could be helpful to those newbies looking for a little help? There are tons of opportunities for freelance tutoring not just for kids in school but for adults looking to find a way into a specific field of life. Not only can you teach in one-on-one scenarios, but you can also launch courses online thanks to a growing number of platforms allowing for new educators to get their classes established and set-up for anyone around the world to attend.

A sense of community and of connection to others can be a very important factor in what makes a career fulfilling to you. If you know that you’re a people person, make sure that you find a career for yourself that puts you in contact with others.

How to keep your home safe while on holiday

The holiday season would soon be here, so it makes sense to start thinking how to keep your hope while on holiday. A good number of break-ins happen when the property is empty. Which is why we have to take our home security very seriously.

I am currently working on a campaign with www.dpp-law.com on tips on burglary and keeping our home safe while on vacation. Here are my 5 top home safety tips.

 

Check your home insurance

It is shocking to find that many people still do not have a home insurance. Before going on holiday, you need to make sure you have a valid home insurance to cover your needs. Also check to make sure the home insurance cover stays valid even when you are away on holiday.

 

Leave your house looking occupied

You should mow the lawn before you go away on holiday if you need to. Leave your curtains and blinds half-opened. Having a car in the driveway is a great idea if possible. Also, ensure you cancel any regular deliveries like the milk or newspapers.

 

Keep your valuables safe

If you have to keep anything of value in the house, like money or expensive jewellery, you need to keep them in a place no one would think of checking. Don’t leave valuables lying around and make sure anything you do leave cannot be seen from outside the house.

 

Don’t tell the world you are going on holiday

I tell only few selected people about my holidays before I go. Sharing actual dates of holidays and how long you will be away for is a no-no. This is the easiest way to invite burglars into your home while you are on holiday.

 

Try not to post pictures on social media from your holiday destination

Now I know this is a tough one for bloggers, especially travel bloggers. But it is important we don’t advertise the fact that our home is vacant and that is what posting holiday pictures while on holiday does. Social media platforms are like windows into our lives, so we have to be smart. If you must share holiday snaps on social media while on vacation, ensure your security game is tight and only a selected group of people can view your photos.

 

How do you keep your home safe while on holiday? Please share your tips in the comments section.

Have a great day.
