Course Description

Having a job in the "real world" is much different than starting a venture online. Living and working online takes dedication and hard work that eventually pays off. You can work online and still have a separate lifestyle and home life in your private time. If you decide that the most affordable and convenient way to work online is from your home, it becomes a challenge to motivate yourself to work but still take the time to relax. Without the separation, you could burn out and find that your venture is taking too much of a toll on your personal life. This course is meant to help people understand how to start working online, how to manage your home and work life and how to build a business.

The course starts with setting up your work area in your home. We also help you understand some of the basic software that you'll need to get started. We cover software that you might need to work depending on the area of expertise that you want to specialize in. We also get you started with accounts and services that will help you manage your online business life.

As with any online venture, you also need to consider the safety of your data and your customers. We cover popular devices used to work online even when away from your office, and then we cover the best ways to protect those devices and online accounts from attackers. If you want to live and work online, this course is a way to get started.
