Ways you can work from home

  

  Would you be interested in trying a remote or telecommuting work opportunity? Some people enjoy working from their home office; you may too! Finding legitimate work at home jobs can be quite challenging online since there are a lot of scams. 

     I wanted to share some companies I have seen usually hiring remote workers. This list changes and updates and this blog and it's contributors are not responsible for if you are hired or can apply at this time. Not every opportunity is a good fit for everyone and do not expect to earn millions of dollars. These are more flexible and part-time jobs to help perhaps with your savings, car gas or paying smaller bills. 

   Some people do earn a lot more money than just grocery money but that is few and far between. It is hard for people to maintain discipline working from home from what I have noticed. A lot of people do prefer working at an actual office and I can totally see why.

There are many other options to working from home than joining those scammy home party plan businesses also.  A family member of mine works very part-time outside her home as a substitute teacher. It is not home based but it still is flexible since she can do the jobs when she has the time.

....I would fall for those types of companies for many years. I would get recruited to buy a kit then host parties or ask people to buy my overpriced jewelry, shakes and cosmetics. Nothing against people who do those; it just was not profitable for me; and I would rather not recruit others or sell for a company I will never really own. It was cheaper for me to just buy items wholesale or start my own boutique in the long run.

In no way am I saying people who work for multi-level marketing companies are bad people or scammers. I genuinely was trained by those who got me into the business that I was helping others by promoting these "home-based businesses." In all actuality we were just independent contractors selling for wealthy CEO's who would not care about us either way or the other.

Over time I would have made way more money just getting a nine to five job or something with an hourly pay. Some offer perks and benefits. I made extra money baby-sitting, housekeeping, affiliate marketing and re-selling fashion online in the past. They were all helpful to me as I am a mom and it gets so expensive doing a lot of activities with children sometimes. I am thankful for ways to generate income without having to pay insane daycare costs. 

Sure the money is not amazing from work at home gigs I have done but it weighs out because I was able to work it around my schedule. I figured if I did another job outside the home; I would have to pay for childcare, gas and I would often buy work clothes, lunches and morning coffees. It adds up fast! 


Some other ideas to working from mostly home could be starting a photography business or obtaining an insurance license. Daycare owners or real estate agents can often choose their own hours as well. I know of two friends who make income as a nanny and charge around twenty (USD) bucks per hour. A podcaster I know boards dogs and pet sits. I suggest finding something you enjoy a lot so you are actually enjoying what you do. 


Telecommute, remote or work at home are some things you should search for online if none of the companies below would be a good match for you. Not all companies are constantly hiring or accepting applicants but it is nice to have this list handy to share with others in need of additional income ideas.
