Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.05% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
One thing noticeable about Asheville, although not a huge city, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters.

This makes Asheville a pretty good place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
