Have you ever dreamed of starting your own business, wanted to become your own boss, or wished you could change careers?
Often the need to keep up with growing financial responsibilities can make it harder to make those dreams a reality. What if you can't find clients when starting your own business? How do you go back to school to change careers when you have a demanding 9-5 job or mandatory overtime? How will you pay your bills while working your way up in a new career?
These questions can quickly have you settling for a job that seems safe, but what if there was a way that you could get the financial freedom and flexibility that you need to make your dreams come true.
Working from home as a LiveOps independent call center agent provides thousands of people with the opportunity to earn a flexible income on their own schedule.
Plus, you get the opportunity to learn what starting your own business is like without taking on the more difficult tasks like finding clients and making sure you get paid. LiveOps call center agents are independent contractors running their own home businesses across the country, but they aren't alone. They are part of the LiveOps Nation, supported by other LiveOps Nation members who share their work-from-home goals and challenges. Learn more about how LiveOps works.
You Can Work Around School to Change Careers
With LiveOps, you can work around a school schedule that may change from semester to semester. LiveOps independent agents schedule themselves in 30-minute blocks of time and have the ability to quickly adjust their schedules as needed. With that kind of flexibility you can pursue that degree or take the courses you need to change careers and get your dream job without worrying that work will get in the way.
Transition Out of a Full-Time Job and Become Your Own Boss
Some independent call center agents start by partnering with LiveOps 5-10 hours a week, while working a full-time job. It's a great way to see if starting your own business is a good fit for you.
Agents who thrive in the independent call center model can quickly build up their home business, increasing the hours they work to make it their primary income. Others enjoy the work, but choose to do it for "fun money" or to save up for special things like a new car or their children's school tuition.
If you're thinking of making a career change or starting your own business, it may help you save up a nice nest egg to help you get started.
Use LiveOps as Supplemental Income While Starting Your Own Business
With LiveOps you control your income potential so you can earn more when you need to and less when you don't. Imagine how helpful that flexibility can be when starting your own business, or entering a career where you need to build clientele like a hairdresser, freelance writer, or local handy man.
If you're dream job is seasonal, like a ski instructor, running a bed and breakfast, or even teaching, you could make money working from home during your slow season.
