I toss this term around and realize not everyone knows what I mean?

Working virtually means relying on advanced communication technology (translate that to a computer and Internet access) to drive your business.

The setting is less important than the operating style. You may operate from a bedroom, a cellar, a garage or the living room.

You may rent space and even have back up help in the form of subcontractors or another principle for your business.

You may telework and maintain a side office.

Perhaps you're a full-time employee building what Barbara Reinhold, a career expert, calls a sidecar business.

And you may want to earn enough to support your lifestyle -- a lifestyle entrepreneur -- or grow a Microsoft.

Any of these categories fit into the virtual work place.

Write to me and tell me who you are and how you operate.
