Working From Home: Jobs You Didn’t Even Think Of!

I swear to god I’ve been 95% finished with this post for three days. I’ve just been too sinus-headache impaired to click the publish button.

I got a LOT of questions about working from home. How can I do it? Is there a way to actually make money? The crap do people ACTUALLY do from home? Well, you’ve seen my post on blogging and on being a professional freelance writer...but let’s say you have no talent in writing. Here’s a look at some jobs you can still do in your pajamas!

Seamstress: Sewing and altering clothing can be a lucrative trade–and one that you can do from home. This is obviously something that takes time to train in and learn, but the flexibility of being able to set your own hours and meet clients at your own home can be worth the investment.

young-student-and-student-tutor

Tutor: SAT, ACT, Math, English, Science, Languages–and those are just the start. You can also teach subjects like etiquette, computer literacy, cooking, painting, public speaking, resume writing and job interviewing…

Side note: I once had a math tutor who was extraordinary. She was recently divorced and staying at home with two toddlers. She had teenagers and college students coming by from 9:00AM-7:00PM. While most of her students (parents) paid her (handsomely) for her time, other students exchanged an hour or two of tutoring for an hour or two of babysitting. She had a team of girls watching her kids throughout the day while she got paid to tutor someone else. Not a bad system!

consultant

Consultant: Anything that you’ve had success at–you can consult as. Think of a skill that you’ve acquired, something you’ve accomplished that made a tremendous improvement in your life. Did you apply for disability and get it? Put yourself out there as a consultant to help others figure out the paperwork.  Anything that you can speak on, answer questions about, and provide resources for–you can be a consultant of. Think of the one thing that people come to you for help with the most often. Why can’t it be a career?

Translator: Speak two languages? Reach out to different companies via email–think lawyers, doctors offices, advertising companies, firms of any kind! Let them know you’re available to do conference calls with clients, translate emails, proposals, letters, anything they need. Work from home and let them know your hourly rate.

Concierge: When you think about creating a job out of nothing, think of the kinds of services you WISH existed. Busy mom–don’t you wish you had someone to cook, someone to clean, someone to drive the kids, someone to pick up the laundry, someone to just–manage your life. So what about organizing lists of people who do that? And then putting yourself out there as a concierge who can schedule and manage tasks for other people?

workfromhome

Continue Your Current Job–But From Home: Think it’s not possible? You’d be surprised. My mother worked as TV producer for many years. When I started to get sick she kept asking her boss for more and more time off. Except that it wasn’t technically time off–because she took all her appointments on the phone and after about two years she finally managed to get her company to agree to let her work entirely from home. She set up her office in my old bedroom and her (and her partner!) both work together from separate states.

Keep an Open Mind: The job I have now with Global Genes was not something I ever planned on doing. But when I heard about the position and learned that I could work entirely from home–I jumped/leapt/ran to throw my name in the ring. Opportunity is everywhere. Keep your resume up to date. Put it out their on your social media that you’re actively looking for a position. Reach out to friends to see if their companies are hiring.
