Breaking the 9-5: Why People Work from Home with LiveOps

December 13, 2015

Author: Karen Beaman, Director Agent Acquisition and Onboarding

A stay-at-home parent. A military spouse, constantly on the move. A retiree looking to make some supplemental income. A person sidelined by a medical issue that makes it difficult to work a traditional 9-5 job. A worker who was laid off or had their hours reduced. A caregiver who is available to work, just not at set hours on a regular basis. A college graduate who needs money to live on now while building their business or career. Anyone who craves true control over their time so they can have true work life balance.

Who are these people? They could be your neighbor, a family member or even you. They sound different but have one main similarity: they are all examples of people who need to find flexible work opportunities.

The old standard of working from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., five days a week has been changing for some time now. Weekend work, reduced schedules due to economic conditions, and flexible schedules are more common. As the economy has shifted, new work opportunities have become available. And many of those opportunities allow people to work from home.

That has opened a world of possibilities for a variety of people. People like Linda, a licensed insurance agent who found her calling as part of the LiveOps Nation. She retired from her full-time job and found she missed the daily connections she made. LiveOps was the perfect fit: “I love the freedom to be able to schedule my commits as they fit my personal time. I come and go as I please…I get up each morning, drink my coffee and start work in my PJs and slippers. It’s hard to beat that.”

Or Reba, a stay-at-home mother of five and military spouse. “Being a wife of a Sgt. First Class in the U. S. Army and the mother of five children, I needed flexible work that would work well with my schedule/life style. I have the dream ‘job’! I can pick the hours that I want or need to work, since LiveOps is 24/7 and in the comfort of my home. I have been encouraged through my co-workers to step out of my comfort zone and build my business to a higher level. I am thankful!”

And Jean, who had to leave her job when a car accident left her disabled and unable to continue working full time. “LiveOps saved me from financial ruin…I am now able to pay my bills and also treat myself to other items and services. If I'm not feeling well, I always have the flexibility to adjust my work schedule. The scheduling flexibility also affords me the ability to meet my other personal appointments, meetings, and pursue my love of water aerobics during my lunch break! Best of all, because I work from home, I save time and money commuting!”

When you become a LiveOps independent agent, you are your own boss and set your own schedule, which means you can work when it’s convenient for you. Fit work around your life instead of the other way around. Work from the comfort of your home office, with technologies that make it easy to interact with customers and to building your own business. Enjoy knowing you are helping people and making a difference for them. And make a difference for you and your family by bringing in extra income.

LiveOps offers a robust certification and onboarding program to help you get comfortable with the tools, clients, procedures and other elements of running your business. And you are not alone. Other independent agents who are part of the LiveOps Nation are available to help, support and cheer you on. And opportunities are available in a variety of areas, including sales, customer service, roadside assistance, licensed insurance sales, and insurance claims.

It’s the best of all worlds: working from home, earning extra money and fitting work around your family’s schedule.

"I am able to spend time with my husband who is retired from the military. I can take vacations any time of the year without asking for that time off. I can go spend time with my children, their school events, doctor appointments, sports, birthday parties, etc."

"I could rave and rave about LiveOps! Working for them allows me to remain a stay at home mom in this economy. If it weren’t for this opportunity, I'd be away from my children somewhere, working in an office, and they would be at a sitter after school. Thank You LiveOps!"
