    Hey everyone! Do you know of any contractual or hourly basis jobs that you can do from home without having to live in a particular country?
    Anything you have tried or are currently doing - that works?

    Any suggestions welcome smile

      Dont be discouraged by those that chime in with insults, insinuating that you are some lazy person. There are many opportunities out there. It takes lots of research. Never sign up or do work for anyone without doing a little research on them. For every legit opportunity there are 20 scams.

    Since this is the holy grail of every lazy person, gamer, invalid, mother and redundant worker, GOOD LUCK!

    You can get in there and join an MLM (which is bloody hard work and low pay), or get qualifications, or learn how to earn online. There is no "EASY" work from home job.

      lol well actually i am a registered Pharmacist with a Masters degree in Pharmacy from the UK. Currently living in the Caribbean where work is not exactly slow, but just tedious to get started with. been out of a job for 7 months now WAITING on the relevant bodies to get their paperwork organised...

      If I could start a site and offer pharmacist consultations (with emphasis on natural remedies and non conventional meds), I certainly would opt for that. No expertise in this area though so was looking for an alternative source of income....

        You could tutor or teach online with skype on a school website or on your own...Science and math are areas in high demand

          this sounds like a great idea! although I would love, absolutely LOVE to teach biology and pharmacology based topics pro bono, as it would be something I would be doing on a full time basis, I need to figure out a way to monetize it. I am fully dedicated and committed to making it work though...

        That sounds like a great idea, and is not so hard to get started as you might think.

        PM me if you want some help getting started.

                It sounds like WriteAngled's lead may be a better option with more potential for immediate income.  Good luck with it!

        Do you know any language sufficiently to understand medical/pharma content in it? If so, you could look at medical translation. I have been doing this as a full-time freelance since 2004, and for several years moonlighting before that. I have far more work offered than I can accept. I do not have any linguistic qualifications whatsoever. The important thing is understanding the subject matter, which often proves difficult for language graduates. There is a constant stream of documentation from clinical trials around the world that has to be translated. Proz.com is a good place to start. You can set up a profile for free. That is how I found most of my clients.

          wow. that sounds like a hot lead! i will definitely sign up on the website you suggested - don't you have a referral link smile

            No, it's not an affiliate set up at all. I was on it for a few years with a free profile before I switched to paying member. The main reason I did become a paying member was because I felt I owed the site something!

          Wow, thanks for this - great idea. I'm a chemistry graduate and I spent a number of years as a freelancer, writing pharmacological patents abstracts. And I have a working knowledge of German.

    From what I can see, translation is far more lucrative than writing, as long as you work through proper channels like Proz rather than the cheap freelance markets that cover every type of work. I expect to earn at least £150 on days when I work, and often it's significantly more. That's why I don't have time to put up many hubs smile

    BTW, it is possible to register directly with some translationagencies on their web sites as well.

    German is one of the languages out of which I am asked to translate most often.

    Translators of patents tend to charge higher rates than average! It's not something I offer because of the special way certain terms are used in patents. I don't feel confident enough about it.
