Remember that whether you're offering a service or selling a product, you'll need to market yourself to customers, complete the job, and then wait to get paid (30 to 90 days is standard in most industries). At the same time, you'll have start-up costs: office supplies and furniture, computer equipment, child care, and so on (see "Home-Office Essentials" for a list of what you'll need). Therefore, it is prudent to clean up your personal balance sheet and optimize your credit rating. Pay off any high-interest credit cards; this will give you a fresh start and more clout with potential lenders. The bad news is that no matter how fiscally attractive you look, it can be tough to get a loan from your local bank; start-up capital is notoriously difficult to come by. You might, however, try a Small Business Administration lender with access to microloan funds or one of several microloan funds designed for women, such as Count-Me-In.
Successfully working from home means exactly that: WORKING from your house. It takes focus, dedication, and perfecting the art of ignoring life’s little distractions—like your mailman, who only seems to ring the doorbell when you’re deep into a project, or the neighbors chatting it up outside your home office window. (OK, yes, those two things are happening to me right now, but look! I’m still writing…that’s focus, people.)

1. AccuTran Global – AccuTran Global is mostly known as a transcription company, which is fair since that’s mostly what they bring on independent contractors to do. However, they sometimes have data entry jobs as well, so it’s best to keep your eye out. Check the link for my overview of the company, detailing what it’s like for their transcriptionists: it’s likely to share similarities to what they expect of data entry specialists.

You'll enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the US as you take on some tough challenges. Primary Responsibilities: ... Job Keywords: Licensed Behavioral Health Care Advocate, Telecommute, telecommuter, Psychology, Social Work, Counseling, Marriage or Family, Ph.D., mental health, work from home, Medicaid, utilization, medical necessity, concurrent review, Optum, Optumhealth.

Motivation is crucial and something you have to mold on your own. Start by determining if you respond best to extrinsic or intrinsic motivation. The first is basically being watched by an employer, or a data-tracking system, someone gauging your productivity (in the case of Ctrip, call volume) with math. That’s easy to do. That’s easy to count and reward and fire. Intrinsic motivation is far more nebulous. You do it because you care about it, because you derive professional pride from accomplishment, because you thrive on innovating, on doing.
I’m looking for people to join my team with Advocare! It’s a great opportunity to get healthy (especially as the New Year approaches!) and make some additional money!

Email me with “advocare” in the subject line if you’re interested! laurenherbers@gmail.com
Find out how your coworkers communicate best virtually and stay in touch with them. Don’t just talk about what you’re working on, but ask them about their weekend, their kids, their day. Communication tools like Slack have made this super easy. IM and team chats don’t require the same formality as emails sometimes do. Have video meetings as much as you can—it can be a big communication help to see someone’s facial expressions as you’re speaking to them.

Then things soured. I began to loathe working remotely. I felt unkempt and dirty, lonely and disconnected, malnourished and unhealthy. Turns out in my hasty jump into remote work, I had fallen for the most common pitfalls. More than five years later, I’m now a regular from-afar employee — whether it be from an apartment in Brooklyn, a cabin in upstate New York, or my tiny home in Maine — and I can comfortably and productively contribute a solid day’s work from almost anywhere.

Web tutoring is another job in which you can earn money from home. Tutors may have to travel to the home of a student to perform work functions but do not have to report into an office. Companies such as Tutor.com and Aim-for-A Tutoring offer online tutoring positions. The rate of pay varies by education level, subject matter, and company, but a Glassdoor.com report indicates an average pay of between $9 and $21 per hour. Some tutoring positions are part time and used as a supplementary or secondary source of income.

4.  Be flexible, boundaries may need to change. Working parents may need to shift their boundaries (move a working dinner to a working lunch, put in time after addressing her family or child care needs), but they have a high capacity and efficiency to get the job done.  Support these shifts knowing that you are exhibiting trust and support for this highly valuable work sector.

Skill. If you’re going to sew for other people, your skills need to be far above average. If you’re a beginner or an average seamstress, wait until you improve their skills before attempting to earn money in this type of business. If people are going to trust their wedding dresses or their favorite sports jacket to you, you must be able to handle them with care and the utmost skill.
Though binge-watching old episodes of Friends could be a pitfall, work-related items can be distracting at home, too. Each type of communication software has its own chime, ding, or other alert that can pull your focus away from the task at hand, Reynolds said. It’s important to establish a rhythm and be able to focus your mind on your own — without a boss or nosy co-worker around to keep you on point.
Routine tasks like booking travel arrangements and answering emails can become overwhelming. Virtual assistants step in to take on a variety of daily tasks. They can work for a variety of clients such as, executives, small business owners, and journalists. They perform administrative and clerical tasks. All a virtual assistant really needs is a secure internet connection.
My 10-year-old son brought home a book from our park’s free library box. It was a biology textbook – teachers edition. He said it looked interesting and hey, it was free (having no idea you could sell it). I scanned it in my Amazon seller app and realized it was worth around $150. He was so excited. We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!

The beautiful thing about a course is that you get about as much out of them as you put into them. If you want to do one course launch, make a few thousand bucks and walk away, you can do that. If you want to create multiple courses around a general topic and run an academy that you advertise through webinars, podcasts, blogs, and joint-ventures and build a lifestyle business from your home, you can do that too!

The more oddball your stuff is, the more weird, or rare it is, the better it'll sell. This is exactly opposite if you sell on Amazon. With eBay, the rarer the items are, the more money you'll get, the faster it'll sell, and the more bidders will bid. Speaking of bidding, I never hold bidding auctions. I do buy-it-now with payment required now. Just save yourself the hassle of all the thousands of non-paying bidders out there wasting your time and set your items for buy-it-now. You can do best offer, but in my opinion, it's a waste of time. I always only got super low ball offers, like 10% of what I'm fairly asking and the ones that want to ask for less, don't need a best offer to do so, they email you anyway.
If talking on the phone is not practical for you, you can still work a customer service job from home. Many of the same companies that hire call center agents, also hire chat agents. And in addition to these customer service chat jobs, there are other online chat jobs from home. These include answering questions, doing internet research, moderating in social media and more. 
A wide range of businesses need workers to enter various data into their systems, whether that data are used to track inventory or shipments, create business plans, or measure performance or output. And since a computer and typing skills are the most important requirements for this job, many data entry workers are able to work at home, and on a schedule that fits their lives.

Hi Cyndi! Haha. Yes, now, I can do it for the pure enjoyment of it rather than the intense pressure to write, write, write to survive. :) I definitely like it much better that way. I'm the same way with my art, actually. When I have to make art for money, it's no fun. When I create it out of love, it's such a thrilling process. I DO plan on doing a 30/30 hub challenge in July. :)
Bulk Selling: For all practical purposes, you can sell as many items as you like on Decluttr. If you reach the 500-item-per-order limit, just start a new order. This is a big advantage for folks staring down huge boxes of old DVDs, CDs, and textbooks. And it’s a distinct competitive edge on retail trade-in platforms, which may require users to enter their items one at a time.
Take breaks. When making your schedule, you might want to consider working in smaller spurts, and allowing yourself time to get up from the computer to stretch. “This will really help you both physically and mentally,” Spence says. “Without a water cooler and co-workers around, you may forget to take time away from your desk. When you take breaks, you’ll be more productive,” Kanarek adds.
Also keep in mind that communication with a telecommuting team requires an extra layer of crystal clear clarity. Since almost everything is done via email (and there are no facial or body clues to read), you’ll need to make sure that you mean what you, um, type. I’ve found that shorter, more succinct sentences go a lot farther than long-winded soliloquies.
Search engine evaluators work online as independent contractors and give feedback about whether search engine results are comprehensive, accurate, relevant, and timely. They are the human quality-assurance check in a system run by complicated algorithms. Search engine evaluators must be familiar with the language and the culture of the local web search engine users. Typically, these positions are bilingual, but some openings are available for English-only search evaluators.

Having a planner can help a ton with scheduling yourself. Here are two of my favorites, Bloom Planner and Academic Planner. I like planners because I can sit down and write what I need to do, plus it allows me to keep everything in one area! I use to keep my kids stuff on one calendar and my work stuff on another….but that was just way too confusing for me! One spot makes it much easier! If you noticed, I use cheap planners because all I need is a space to write, and none of the fancy other items. Plus I want a small one so I can fit it in my purse when I go to appointments.

Storage. Depending on how big your business gets, you’ll need ample room to store the books. You can’t get lazy or disorganized about it, either. You have to keep the books in good condition, and you need to be able to find them when someone wants them. For instance, if you list a book in “like new” condition, and then the pages get smashed during storage, you’ll be in a bind if someone places an order before you realize what happened.
”I found G.I. Jobs to be helpful in both the general and specific sense. On the general side, G.I. Jobs clearly highlighted not just employment opportunities, but also education and entrepreneurial tips as well. For someone who may just be beginning the move from uniform to the civilian world, it gives a great overview. From a more specific perspective, G.I. Jobs does quite a handy job of showing all walks of military life: they are quick to highlight the junior enlisted as well as the senior officer. It gives the burgeoning civilian the chance to see folks just like them being able to successfully navigate what can be the tricky world of post-military employment."
Other reasons employees might want to work from home: there's no commute, no boss looming over your shoulder, no co-workers to interrupt you, and no dress code, says Lisa Kanarek, a home office expert, author and founder of WorkingNaked.com. But it can be difficult to go from a corporate office to a home office because there are no co-workers around, no support staff and no IT department to help you, she says.
