Looking back on it all now, you probably shouldn’t have had that extra six pack at the office Christmas party last year. Professing your love to anyone who would listen may have not been such a great idea either. The result? Spending the rest of your working career dealing with the looks of scorn and shame from your co workers, and forever being known as “The Maytag Man” for reasons you may or may not be able to completely understand. Office politics can be cruel, and when you are on the short end of the stick it can make your working life unbearable.
Well, it may not have occurred to you, but an internet home business based out of your living room could be just the thing to get out of the rat race and hang up your suit and tie for good. Working from home is becoming an increasingly popular career choice for those who have no interest in climbing corporate ladders or fighting for crumbs like pigeons while the CEO’s grow fat eating bread.
There are a lot of different things that an internet home business may entail. In fact, you could be qualified to run your own boss right now – you just haven’t realized it.
In today’s computer and networking age, the idea of a central office for a business can almost seem archaic. If your company deals with a lot of foreign business and networks with other companies, than you may not even need to be in your office to do your job properly. You could do just as good a job at home in your pyjamas or hanging out at the local cyber cafй, and no one would be the wiser.
Many artistic jobs are also uniquely suited to an internet home business. Writers and graphic artists especially find the exploding internet market to be a great place to make money and ply their trade. In the business world this is called “freelancing”, and is an attractive option for anyone who considers themselves a “Hired gun”. Personally, I like to wear a Clint Eastwood poncho I found on EBay, sip dirty whiskey, and chew on a cigar while I write articles for web sites and other related jobs. “Go ahead, punk, send me some email.”
Of course, your internet home business won’t be like mine, or anyone else’s. In fact, the more diversity between internet home businesses the better, because overlap means you’ll be competing with other folks for work you could use.

Do yourself a favour and dig up a system that works, order their manual or online course, and study your heart out. There is a lot of money to be made preselling for other companies, but you have to be smart about it because competition can be fierce.
The really great thing about office politics in an internet home business really surround things you are used to and can live with. Your daughter hogs all the phone time and your son wants you to buy him a video game that has been banned in most God fearing Muslim countries, and your spouse is after you to make sure the dog is let out before you come to bed or that the dishes are done on time.
Isn’t that a heck of a lot better than having to stay on top of the rat race, Maytag Man?
I thought so too.
