Are you looking for a way to work from home? There are a lot of different reasons for wanting to work from home. I love that we have choices today and can craft a life that works for our family. Today let’s look at some of the differences in a work at home job and a direct sales opportunity.

First let’s define what I really mean with these terms. A work at home job is one where you are employed by someone else and work from your home. A direct sales opportunity is just that, like the one we have with South Hill Designs. I’ve done both, in fact, have worked from home for over 10 years. There IS a difference in the two! So, let’s explore!


Flexibility is a big reason why many people choose to work from home. In a job, while you may have some flexibility, you still have to be sure that it fits within the guidelines of that employer, a business risk management expert should always be hire .

With my direct sales business, I pick when I want to work, what days of the week and what times. I can schedule my parties around that schedule. If I have family events coming up, I can simply choose to not work on those days. With my work at home job, I had a schedule with deadlines and couldn’t always take off when I wanted to; it all depended on the needs of that business.


When you work for someone else, they are the one in control. They control when you work, what you are paid, and even whether you work or have a job. At a moment’s notice, they can decide they no longer need you or your services and you find yourself without that job.

With a direct sales opportunity, you are in control of your own future. You can grow your business as you want, and you don’t have that worry about whether you will continue to have income in the future.
