Make Enough Money To Work From Home

Working from home is rewarding

Working from home has many great perks, and you can be successful with the right skills. Self-motivation and discipline are two important factors in working from home. I’ve worked from home for the past eight years, and would not have it any other way. Of course, there is the good and the bad working from home; however, the good outweighs the bad. If you already work from home, listen up for more opportunities in this hub.

Benefits of working from home

  • Flexible schedule – since many home-based jobs can be done on the Internet, you can work 24/7. At least you have an opportunity to work whatever shift you like.
  • Opportunity to spend more time with family – Many moms like being available to their children. Moms are joining the ranks of working at home everyday.
  • Financial rewards – Studies show that Independent Contractors are staying on their jobs longer these days than traditional employment. You have equal and greater opportunities to earn a higher income working from home.
  • Greater fulfillment – Many people that work from home do work that is more meaningful to them and society. When I began working from home eight years ago, I sought work that brought me great satisfaction. I became very successful, and many opportunities came to me that I had never dreamed of.
  • Broader reach – You will find that your audience is global. You get opportunities to work with people from all parts of the world.

Skills necessary to be successful working at home

  1. Independent – Working from home requires you to work with little or no supervision. You must be an independent worker and thinker – able to think on your feet. Be a self-taught learner.
  2. Excellent communication skills – Working from homes means working remotely. Your should be good with email. You have to write clear and concise information and instruction to your readers.
  3. Discipline – You should be able to meet deadlines and stick with. Stick to schedule and system that you can fulfill. Having integrity will help create the discipline you need.
  4. Self-Motivated – Working from home can get lonely, and you have to be able to motivate yourself. There is no group of people that you see, shake hands with, or give a high-five for job well done. You’ll have to be your own best cheerleader.
  5. Computer skills – Technology is your link to the outside world, and you need to be connected. Learn to use the Internet, email, and Microsoft Word will make life easier for you.
  6. Competitive – I say competitive because, you need drive. The person you are competing against is yourself. You want to be able to outdo yourself.
  7. Passion – is the key that drives you to do what you do. Passion is the strong desire give of yourself. Passion will keep you going when you need it most.

Careers/Jobs you can work from home

Good Choices

  • Customer Service – Listening and solving problems for people. You work in a quiet place with your headset on and help resolve issues customers have.
  • Editor – Chief individual over copy for magazines, newspapers, books and information provided to readers.
  • Field Interviewer – Interview individuals face-to-face and over the phone to collect information (data) about a specific subject. You work from home and go into the community.
  • Freelance Writer – One who writes original content on various topics and publishes it for the public.
  • Publisher – One who takes written content and turns it into final copy, such a book or magazine and makes it available to the public for sale.
  • Mystery Shopper – this really is a job. Many companies want you to test their products or evaluate the companies who sell their products. You go into these companies “undercover” so to speak. You act like a real customer, and play the role as an evaluator.

Income expectation

Most home-based employers allow you to work up to 40 hours per week, and many offer part-time. You can choose what is best for your schedule. In many cases, home-based workers have the option to work more or less than they want. Early on, the pay may seem low, but in the long run you can earn more. Benefits and bonuses are rewards that you can aspect and appreciate from working at home. Salaries vary and are unlimited.

Best of all -- You are in control of your work schedule.

Great hub! In this world where businesses are crumbling and people are getting laid off by the hundreds if not thousands---someone that travels and speaks on this topic could also profit a great deal. Or even in high schools and colleges.

Hi Laura in Denver, sorry to hear about the Amazon matter. You sound like to have what it takes to keep on plugging away to get what you want though. Give yourself some time, and things will work out.

Thanks for stopping by,

Take Care!

Thanks for the encouraging words. I personally had my income slapped down significantly with Colorado's "Amazon Law" or "Nexus Law" in which Amazon fired some 4200 affiliates in Colorado.

I get so tired of all the taxation and specifically avoided retailing in CO because of the many sales tax jurisdictions.

Now CO wants affiliates to suffer, Morons.

I'm strongly considering ditching the state. Ironic I chose the name "Laura in Denver" and cannot change it!!!!

This is a very good hub. I don't make much online but I put the work in for sure. I have done the research as you have said, but many only average a few dollars an hour. I will keep looking because right now I am unemployed and late on bills. I work on the computer 12 hours a day. I just can't figure what I am doing wrong. I need to find the right place to work for. I appreciate all your tips. You know what you are talking about.

Balance is good, but don't deny yourself from doing what you love. Let's keep in touch. I want to know your progress in the days ahead. I have a friend that will retire in one week and have been talking to her about writing. She keeps telling me that she dosen't want to do anything that will be hard. I explained to her that she can work at her pace. -- And that now is the time to share with the world her tremendous learning. Listen Juliet, have fun in your retirement!

gr82bme, thanks for your comment. No I did not give web-sites. One of the most important things about working from home is, you have to do a lot of research and study for yourself. I listed some of the different types of work at home jobs -- you can put the job titles in your search engine and see what comes up. You can do these jobs without paying a fee; granted there are opportunities that require up front fees, depends on what you choose. I am thinking about providing web-sites???

Great Hub. Congratulations to you! Thank you for sharing this great information.WOrking from home is wonderful. I haven't fully mastered it like you though. But with hard work and effort hopefully I will. Working from h's ome is harder to do than working for someone else. You are right, you have to put in more effort because you have to do it all by yourself. There is no one to fill in for you if you get sick. No one to talk to either. But if you are self disciplined it will work out. But I would love to have you as my mentor, you are Fantastic!!! Thank you again

Hi lender3212000, It does take courage to work for yourself, be an Independent Contractor, I agree. Being an Independent Contractor means knowing your strengths, and skills. Alot of people can not work alone and motivate themselves. I suggest that people find a system or organization that is strong in supporting the kind of work they enjoy. Lender, working from home is not for everyone. You have to have support. I appreciate your thoughts!

Great hub...and excellent timing as I try to motivate myself on this Monday morning. Working from home is difficult, and that is something I think a lot of people overlook. Its not the challenge of your job that is hard, its the grind of working alone, which is why I really like your advice.

It's also staggering how much money we spend going out to work for someone else, carfare, clothes, lunches, childcare, and the expenses of shortcuts because you just don't have time and energy to come home and do the 2nd shift of work - whew!

I work from home, both in a part time job for a recruiting firm, and for my own business as a Shaklee Distributor. Everyone at the recruiting job also works from home, in different cities, and we meet weekly online.

I miss seeing people on a daily basis in an office, but make sure that I get some sort of social interaction outside the house as many days a week is possible. The Shaklee business gets me out of the house, too, since I spend a lot of time meeting with potential and current customers and partners. The hard part definitely is creating structure for myself, but my problem is with stopping and deciding work time is over.

Congrats on being a Hubrunner up!! I do not aspire to work from home because I recognize that I am limited by an incredible lack of self-discipline. I need the structure of a work day, a supervisor and a consistent paycheck to keep me motivated so I am currently looking for a full time job outside the home. However, as the jobs are not forthcoming due the economy and, since my husband is earning enough money to support the both of us for now, I am looking for "at home" options to provide me with discretionary income in the interim. Thank you so much for your informative hub. I will follow you, if you don't mind. And you've just inspired me to write my second hub tomorrow. :-)

Hi Jeremey, thank you so much for visiting my hub. HupPages is an exciting place to be -- and easy to stick around. So you want to know how to get started on a work at home job. I think the first think is deciding what you are best at; what are you really, really good at (lots of people bypass this step). Many people just do what they think will make them lots of money, and it turns into a viscious cycle. Take a personality test/assessment to learn more about your abilities. Also, very important, increase your opportunities at HubPages with Amazon.com and Google Adsense, and other affiliates. I am thinking about writing a hub about how to get started with a home-based job/business. Thanks for the question.
