Nexus Publishing announces the launch of HomeWorker magazine, the premier publication for home-based entrepreneurs, downshifters and lifestyle businesses.
Aimed directly at the burgeoning global market that now exists of home-based workers and small business owners, HomeWorker magazine will be hub around which all home-based enterprises and mobile professionals will orbit.
How we work today is changing. More of us are abandoning the daily commute to an office in favour of working from home, with the environmental, financial and social advantages that this can bring. Millions of people now work full-time from home, with further millions working at least one day a week from a home-based office. What is clear is that the two million people that now work full-time from home will be joined over the next few years by millions more as work evolves.
And with downshifting becoming a lifestyle choice for many, plus new workers entering the marketplace also wanting to work from home, traditional working patterns have been shattered. The freelance writer, artist or photographer who have been the traditional face of the home-based worker, are now being joined by countless new businesses that themselves only exist as they can be run economically from home. It is estimated that 10,000 people now derive their primary income from their eBay business.
So, why HomeWorker magazine? People have always worked from home – this is not a new phenomenon, but what we are seeing is unprecedented numbers of people using their homes as a base as technology has delivered this flexibility, but few have the skills to make the most of a home-based working environment. From office design to dealing with the inevitable conflicts that a home-based business can bring with family and friends, most home workers reinvent the wheel as they begin to learn how to live and work in the same location.
HomeWorker magazine is designed to help everyone that works from home make the most of their time, environment and skills. HomeWorker magazine grew out of a realisation that there was no journal that specifically supported the millions of people that now work from home. Occasional features appear in newspapers and specialist magazines, but this information is often missed or overlooked by the very people that could make the most of it. What was once an ‘alternative’ lifestyle with all the connotations that this label brought with it, is now transforming into a lifestyle choice that millions of people are now making.
HomeWorker is available as PDF. Why an electronic PDF magazine? I wanted the first magazine from Nexus Publishing to be read by the widest audience possible. Home workers exist across the world. Designing and delivering HomeWorker magazine as an electronic magazine enables me to reach the widest possible audience.
“With an explosion in home-based working over the last few years I wondered why there wasn’t a magazine to support people like me. Looking for a new project for Nexus Publishing it was an easy step to decide to create and publish HomeWorker myself. I hope that every home-based worker across the world will find kindred spirits within its pages,” Dave concluded.
Entrepreneurship and the desire to downshift out of a traditional working pattern is now a realistic goal for a high percentage of the population. HomeWorker magazine aims to provide these people with the tools to make their life decision a reality.

About Nexus Publishing
Nexus Publishing is Dave Howell. Originally from a small town called Darlaston – about ten miles north of Birmingham in the UK – Dave moved to West Sussex about ten years ago to help develop one of the first online retailers. Having recently relocated to Shropshire, he is now enjoying working from home life in a semi rural location.
David has been a freelance writer and journalist for over fifteen years. Eight of them were spent doing various other jobs such as bookshop assistant, print finisher and returns clerk for a large library supplier, with the writing taking up evenings and any of his spare time.
His life as an employee came to a conclusion some six years ago with redundancy, so David took the opportunity – and the money – to see if he could survive as a full-time freelance writer. With the vast changes in how published works can reach their intended audience thanks to the Internet, David hopes that Nexus Publishing can become a publishing brand in its own right.
