Millions of moms all over the world are working from home today, and more are joining them every year. From the looks of it, this is a trend that will just continue, as technology makes remote working easier and cheaper than traditional work environments. Not all professions are suited for working from home, of course, but many are, especially if you’re willing to work as a freelancer. I became a work at home mom back in 2009 and I must say it was one of the best decisions I made for my family at the time! I hope these ideas help you to figure out what will or will not work for you!
6 Freelance Professions That You Can Do At Work From Home
Writer: Whether you enjoy writing books, blogging or in-depth technical documentation, there are many opportunities online for skilled writers. The competition is fierce, however, as “anyone” with some basic grammar skills can call themselves a writer and in many cases, you’ll be competing with people in poor countries who can charge $3 for a long article. It’s not impossible to break into though so don’t let that discourage you!
Designer: Love designing websites, crafting logos or retouching photographs? You should look into working from home as a designer! Skilled designers are actually quite rare online, and if you’ve got some real talent you can also make some real bucks. The trick is to not even try to compete with freelancers who charge $5 for a logo and instead go for the high-end segment.
Developer: If you have experience with programming you could aim for a career as a developer. Plenty of jobs are available, whether you want to work as a freelancer, start your own firm or just work remotely as an employee. Rates are usually good and competition is definitely less compared to writing and designing, as development/programming is more of a specialized skill.
Consultant: You don’t have to actually do the hard work yourself to successfully work from home. One great option is becoming a consultant and instead of telling others what to do, based on your recommendations. A hot tip is consulting in the SEO or online marketing world, where it’s easy to demonstrate a good “return on investment” (assuming, of course, that the advice you can offer actually has a positive effect).
Virtual assistant: If you’re a “jack of all trades” with strong administrative, communication and organizational skills, consider becoming a virtual assistant. This is a great choice if you enjoy a variety of assignments, and most of the time you’ll have pretty good job security as long as you do a good job. As always you’re competing with low-cost labor from poorer countries, so try to specialize in things they cannot do.
As you’ve seen there is plenty of opportunities to work from home, regardless of your skill set. Pick your favorite today and get started – the sooner the better! I hope you have been blessed by this post. Will you do me a favor and share this with your friends and family?
QUESTION: What types of jobs do you do at home? Leave me a comment below:
Love & Prosperity,
I have seen my fair share of scams throughout my journey as a work at home mom! I was so eager to make money at home that I was trying any and all things. I mean I have some horror stories for you, but just for another day. I wanted to warn you about some of the things to avoid when starting your journey as a work at home mama. Now, this journey can be great but you just have to take all necessary precautions at any cost! So, grab a glass of wine and come on a journey with me!
Working at home can be a blast! More freedom, more time with your kiddos and all sorts of entertaining. But if you don’t avoid these scams, it can be a night mare!
5 Ways To Avoid WAHJob Scams
- Asking for your personal information: If any company is asking you for money and your personal banking information. That right there is a red flag. I can’t tell you how many times I fell for this one trick. Some of these people can sound so convincing.
- Verify the company. One great place I always check is the Better Business Bureau (BBB+). Google them to find out about previous customers and their experiences.
- Sending you interview via chats: I mean that one right there, really. You can’t schedule a phone interview? Please be aware of this
- Check their website: If there is no obvious sign of any kind of website or social media profile, I wouldn’t even bother.
- No contact information: You can’t find a phone number or email (legitimate), there there is another red flag.
I hope this post blesses you in some way! If you know of family and friends who might need this, would you please share this? Have an amazing day and leave me a comment below.
QUESTION: Have you encountered any scams and how did you recover?
Love & Prosperity,
Have you ever thought about quitting your regular job and starting working from home instead? You’re not alone! Countless people make the switch every year, and it doesn’t look like this trend is stopping anytime soon. As technology gets better, more and more jobs can be done just as well without leaving the house. It’s no wonder most people are interested in it either, as there are many advantages to working from home:
5 Advantages Of Working From Home
1. You set your own hours
You’ll no longer be limited to working when someone else tells you to. Nothing is stopping you from pulling a 16-hour day on Monday and taking Tuesday off, or taking a few hours off in the middle of the day to go grocery shopping. If you’re the type of person who works best in the evening/night, you’ll no longer have to drag yourself up at 7 AM just because someone else tells you to.
2. You can work from anywhere
It’s usually referred to as “working from home”, but a better term might actually be “working from anywhere”. You can work just as well in a hotel room in Thailand, or from your favorite café, there’s no need to limit yourself to your home office.
3. You’ll save time and money
Working from home completely does away with the daily commute, meaning you’ll save both time and gas money. For some people who are used to commuting for 2-3 hours per day, this is huge. Use the money you save to improve your home office instead, or take an extra vacation every year!
4. You’ll be able to work un-interrupted
When you work in a regular office you’ll often have people interrupting you as soon as you get into “the zone”. It can be very frustrating, especially if you’re in a rush to complete an assignment. This is another huge advantage of working from home; unless you have household members who like to bother you (tell them not to!), you’ll be able to enjoy completely focused work with no interruptions.
5. You can invest in your health
Working in an office it may be difficult to find the time to eat healthy and visit the gym. When you’re working from home it’s generally easier, as you’re free to cook whatever you want for lunch/dinner. You can also take a couple of hours off in the afternoon a couple of days per week to hit the gym outside peak hours, avoiding the crowds of office workers who come in after work.
I hope these few tips will help you with deciding to work from home and have the flexibility to be home with your kids. If you want more ways on how to properly work from home and have harmony within your home, grab my Juggling Work & Family System Now.
