This was not a post I planned on writing today but I got some unfortunate news and I thought I should remind everyone you need more than one egg in your basket.
Twenty minutes ago I got an email stating that the call center job I do from home will be ending on February 4th. This was not something that was brought on by bad performance or anything of that nature. The client has decided to stop using work at home agents, meaning I am now out of a job.
This was my primary WAHJ and this is going to be a big hit to my families monthly budget. Thankfully, I do have some small eggs in my basket that will help bring in some extra income.
If you are currently working from home or you intend to start working from home I have one tip for you! Please do not get to comfortable with your work at home position. Most of us are Independent Contractors and can be terminated at any time. I was lucky enough to get notice but as an Independent Contractor companies are not required to provide any termination notice.
Line up a few jobs and make sure you always have a backup. Believe me you will be thankful you have a back up plan!
