By the way, a lack of contact information on a "make-money-from-home" site is a red flag. When there's no clear way to contact whomever is running the site, that is usually a pretty good indicator you're dealing with a scammer. Even if there is contact info, don't assume everything is okay. Check it out. If an address is listed, look it up on Mapquest or Google Maps. See if it really exists. If there's a phone number, call and find out who answers.
”Thank you G.I. Jobs for sharing HOT degrees for Veterans. As a Lifelong Learner, there were times when I questioned my degree pathway. For example: I was considering an undergrad in Kinesiology but thankfully my mentor said: “consider Business Administration so you have a full grasp of the business side of training”. Educational attainment should be relevant and current with the future of the industry. Again, thank you for providing this invaluable information."
Before the evolution of work-at-home, call center employees had to drive to a brick-and-mortar site each day to sit at a desk and provide service to customers. Today, companies like Alpine Access, Convergys, and Asurion hire employees to answer customer service calls for their clients, who range from cable television service providers to healthcare companies. Employees are paid a starting rate of around $9 per hour, depending on the company. Although this hourly pay is below the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ reported median rate of $14.70 per hour for a customer service representative, work-from-home call center agents do not face commuting, clothing, meals, and other costs associated with working at a brick-and-mortar center. Some of these call centers also offer opportunities for advancement. Supervisory, managerial, training, and human resources positions are also available as telecommuting positions.
Being an at-home call-center rep requires a computer and may require specific software or equipment. A great phone voice helps as well, as does any experience in customer service, data entry, retail sales, or management. Dozens of sites list job openings for call-center representatives, including Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, and SimplyHired.com. However, you may also find listings offered by local businesses in your local newspaper.

What It Is: Companies like Google and Yahoo give you information to search for, and you tell them how closely their results matched what you were looking for. Does a search for Lady Antebellum turn up sites about the music group or links to pre-Civil War period information? If you are Latina, for example, you might be asked to search the way a Spanish speaker might perform a search in English.

When I wrote recently about delegating things to assistants, I was truly surprised by the blowback. Regardless, this is crucial, especially if you work from home, because it's easy to fall prey to the illusion that you have unlimited time, and can now do everything yourself. However, if you have a business worth doing, you can--and should--delegate things like managing your calendar, doing initial research, and handling household chores. (Yes, this can apply to child care, as well.)

What Employees Say: “Company is comprised of hard-working individuals who are extremely passionate about what they do. We have done wonderful things for communities through foundations, IBO’s and our own employees giving back. It is exciting to be part of a growing company that has allowed me to use my knowledge to help build my department. I am proud to see how far we have come..” —Current Employee

The purpose of the radio ads is to generate a steady stream of "prospects" that can be turned over to existing distributors for telephone follow-up, thus helping distributors grow their "downline" organizations ("Hi, Fred! I'm calling because you responded to one of Andy Willoughby's ads on the radio. That was you, right? Terrific! So you're looking for a way to make money from home?"…)
Provide chat support to the nation’s leading food delivery app service to help diners with late deliveries or missing food items via Chat.

Almost every contact will require this process of a back and forth between contact utilities.

Next Day Payment: When you sell on Decluttr, you receive payment within 24 hours after the sale completes and the item arrives at the new owner’s address. That’s substantially faster than many online consignment platforms, which tend to have more flexible payment terms. And it’s much more predictable than auction sites or venues for third party sellers (including Amazon), which typically allow buyers and sellers to work out their own payment arrangements.
For his part, Bloom has heard all of your “shirking from home” jokes. “Of the funny pictures that came up, most of them were very negative—naked-people cartoons, people juggling babies, people eating cookies and drinking beer. The public perception from Google Images is pretty dire,” he quips. Sutton Fell says it’s simply a matter of being accustomed to the idea. “Most people, if they’re not working from home themselves, know someone who does it, but even as it becomes more common, there’s still a sense of the unknown about it.”
”Working with Justin and G.I. JOBS, I saw an IMMEDIATE impact on my online visibility, direct contact activity and personal productivity in my focused job search activities. Their job search board immediately identified multiple high paying, skills appropriate positions in my area with companies that I’m excited to explore employment opportunities with. Once we identified those companies, then the team went to work to help me build connections and personal relationships with influencers and inside recruiters and executives at the targeted companies to make sure that I had my foot in the door from the start! My LinkedIn activity increased by more than 5,000% in less than 96 hours.My active contacts (in person or on phone) with in-house recruiters went from 2 contacts in 30 days to 15 contacts in less than 4 days. His ability to connect me with leads and a path to interviews just blew me away! Thank you, Justin and team G.I. JOBS!"
Get paid for your opinions. Taking surveys online can be a relatively quick way to earn enough to afford a few extras. Harris Poll Online, for example, awards points for the completion of online surveys, which can take between five and 25 minutes to fill out. Survey takers accumulate points and can redeem them for gift cards from retailers such as Amazon and Starbucks. Other online outfits that will pay you to take surveys include SurveyClub, Global Test Market and Swagbucks. There's no cost to sign up.
In the calm days following the storm, I woke up each morning, rolled across my sheets, reached for my laptop, logged into various tools — Google Chat, Basecamp, Trello — and got to work. My roommate would bring me coffee from the bodega, and I would not leave my bed until my shift ended (eight hours later), around which time I would shower and hike to a nearby bar for dinner. As the city fought to restore power, there was a candlelight afterglow wherever I walked. That first week I told myself, “I could get used to this.”
Answer surveys to earn money from home. Survey companies I recommend include Swagbucks, Survey Junkie, American Consumer Opinion, Pinecone Research, Opinion Outpost, Prize Rebel, and Harris Poll Online. They’re free to join and free to use! You get paid to answer surveys and to test products. It’s best to sign up for as many as you can as that way you can receive the most surveys and make the most money.

The bottom line: Remote work is not an excuse to get up late, work in your pajamas and enjoy freedom from responsibility. It is, however, a viable career option that permits you to avoid cubicle life and long commutes, options when arranging your work schedule, and the comforts of your own home/office/favorite cafe. As long as the pay is enough for your needs, remote work can be a pleasant, productive and rewarding career.

Who can resist the dinging sound of a new email? You, that’s who, especially if you want to stay on task. And forget about signing in to Facebook “just for a minute.” It’s easy to get distracted when you telecommute—unlikely distractions that just don’t exist at work abound at home. At the office, for example, you might visit the company kitchen once in the morning and once in the afternoon for a cup of joe (because that’s what’s appropriate), but at home, you’re hitting the fridge every hour on the hour. Or more.
Speaking of teaching, even if you don’t have a teaching degree or current certificate, you may be able to make money teaching English online. This is a great side gig for those working a full-time job. The scheduling is flexible and you can work in the early morning, evenings and on weekends. And the pay is pretty good, too! Some ESL tutors are paid up to $21 per 40-minute class. A few companies to consider:
Now don’t beat yourself if you weren’t able to tick off everything in your to-do list. Sometimes we all tend to cram everything in a day even if we know it is unrealistic. So don’t be too hard on yourself. At the end of the day, celebrate your victories instead of dwelling on unfinished assignments, a lapsed deadline, or even failing to take your bath! Look at what you have achieved at the level of energy you mustered today. Then resolve to be better. After all, tomorrow’s another day – at home 🙂

CashCrate is an online platform where you can start earning money by completing offers, taking surveys, watching videos, and shopping online using their site. I’ve played around on the site a little bit, and you’ll want to make sure that you read all of the fine print on each and every offer. Many offers require an email address, which means you’ll receive offers from them and other marketers. Tasks pay out anywhere from a few cents to $30.00 or more, and you’ll receive $1 for signing up for an account. Payments are made via check or PayPal.
What It Is: What better way to alleviate your travel bug than to work as a remote travel agent or consultant? Whether part- or full-time, spend your working hours dreaming up itineraries, flight plans, hotels, and activities for clients looking to travel far and wide. Then, take advantage of your discounts (hey, perks of the job) and go wherever your heart desires, whenever your heart desires.
Think long and hard before shelling out any money: Some work-at-home jobs will require you to purchase materials or equipment to get started, and while that doesn’t mean they’re not legitimate, it should be a red flag. If you are asked to pay for equipment, make sure you understand what you’re buying, and from whom. Also ask about the return policy for your equipment if your new gig doesn’t work out.
Do you love the thrill of the hunt? Or perhaps you have gently used gear and items that you no longer need? Then consider selling them on one of the many online selling platforms. From my own reselling experience, children's clothing, toys, baby gear, furniture, electronics, and high-end designer items tend to do best. I've also found that I earn more selling outright to an individual than when I go through a third-party platform like ThredUp or Gazelle.
Coding – whether for developing apps or designing websites – is another big business online! It’s a pretty egalitarian business as well, since you can teach yourself to code in many languages and you can code from wherever you are. At its most basic, all you need is a computer (or laptop or tablet), an Internet connection for connecting with project files or far-flung colleagues, and a text editor. (The software involved can get more complicated than that, as you go along.) There are more small businesses wanting customized websites and startups trying to create that next great app every day, and coders can make a living along the way.
Serve as an online juror. Some attorneys use large panels of online mock jurors to get feedback on their cases before they go to trial. However, the mock jurors must live in the county or federal district where the case will be tried. You can sign up at a couple of sites and receive e-mail notifications if a case is posted in your area. EJury.com pays $5 to $10 per case via the online payment system PayPal. You can't be an attorney, paralegal or legal assistant – or even related to an attorney – to participate. EJury says you're likely to have better luck getting picked if you live in a large metropolitan area, where more cases are tried, rather than a rural area. The average case takes about 35 minutes to review. At OnlineVerdict.com, where cases typically take between 20 minutes and one hour to review, fees range from $20 to $60. Payment is made by check.
If you are working off your personal internet connection at home, chances are very high that it is slower than the one in an office. Therefore, do not clog it up with junk. If other people in the house would like to play online games or stream while you are working I recommend asking them not to. This is extra important if you use a remote connection and run queries or reports that require a large amount of bandwidth. A slow internet connection will kill your productivity and by extension your mood.

Even though you are no longer chained to a corporate office cubicle, it is still helpful to have a designated space for work that encourages productivity. Don’t just bring your laptop into any room or have files and paperwork stacked on the dining room table. Creating a space for work will keep you organized and help you separate work from home life.
When you take breaks during the day take walks or do physical activity. If you worked in a physical office you would take breaks with co-workers and chat at the water cooler, when you are working at home you should do the same. You can also invest your additional time saved by not commuting into your health. Working at home is a modern convenience. If you approach it with the right attitude it can enhance your career and improve all areas of your life.
10. Working Solutions – Working Solutions periodically offers work that involves data entry. In order to work with them, you’ll need to fill out an online application and follow it up with taking some assessments. They’ll contact you afterward – their website says this step can take up to 2 weeks – with acceptance or rejection. Once you’re an agent, you will have the opportunity to review and put yourself forward for programs you think match your skills. Each program pays differently, and payment is made either via direct deposit or mailed check.
With so many businesses operating mostly, or even completely, online, it’s no wonder that many hire virtual assistants to help keep them organized and complete administrative tasks. According to the International Virtual Assistants Association, these workers are “independent contractors who (from a remote location, usually their home or office) support multiple clients in a variety of industries by providing administrative, creative, and technical services.”
Work keeps invading life. “It’s a lot easier to be distracted when you’re surrounded by the comforts of your own home,” says Ian Aronovich, mentioned above. “And unless you live alone, you’ll have family or housemates disturbing you when you’re working. When I was first starting up GovernmentAuctions.org with my business partner, my kitchen was my office. It was a nightmare when customers called for assistance and I had to take the calls during random hours of the day and night.”
CloudSource, the work-at-home division of Sutherland Global Services, employs customer service consultants from all 48 contiguous states to support industry leaders in the cable/Internet service, retail, software, and gaming console industries. While all CloudSource positions are customer service in nature, some are more heavily focused on sales and/or technical support. Inbound calls only, paid training, ongoing support and growth opportunities exist … All from the comforts of your own home.

I remember when I first started working from home and I was terrified to leave my computer for even a second. Irrational thoughts entered my head: “What if I’m grabbing coffee and miss an IM and don’t answer within a few seconds!? They’ll think I’m not working hard enough!” It took me a few weeks to realize how utterly ridiculous this was. If I was in an office, guess what? I’d go grab coffee without a second thought.


Evaluate Web sites. Another way to make extra cash in a short amount time – $10 for about 20 minutes of work – is to sign on with UserTesting and evaluate Web sites. You need a computer with a microphone and Internet connection, and you’ll have to fill out a one-page demographic profile. You’ll receive work if your profile matches that of the target audience of sites being tested. Then it’s just a matter of using UserTesting’s screen recorder, which you'll need to download to your computer, to record your verbal comments and on-screen movements as you click through a site. Site owners typically are looking for feedback about whether the Web site is confusing to navigate.
Getaround and Turo are the sharing economy's answer to rental agencies.With Getaround, for example, you can rent out your car on an hourly or daily basis.

There are so many articles out there that focus on increasing productivity while working from home. A lot of them are fantastic and chock-full of applicable tips. But some I’ve seen focus on how to set up your home office to achieve feng shui and feature a picture of a woman smiling, holding her baby in one arm, and taking a conference call with the other. Um, no, unless you have the world’s quietest baby. That’s just not how it is.

Jamie, great question. I would try to ship things that can go First Class Mail if you want to run a business. Otherwise, all your profits get eaten up by postage. If you have to ship things outside of that, use calculators on the eBay form and have the buyers pay exact shipping. Sometimes Parcel Select is cheaper, sometimes Priority Mail is cheaper. I always insure anything over $30, and Priority Mail gives me insurance up to $100. Bear that in mind when making a decision as well.
Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast in October 2012 while I lived in New York and juggled three jobs. Along with working at a restaurant and a news agency on nights and weekends, I spent my weekdays commuting from Brooklyn to a media company in Manhattan. When the hurricane made landfall, it crippled the city’s public transportation system for weeks, leaving me all but severed from office headquarters.

Another home-based field that is growing is the "personal concierge" business. This type of enterprise focuses on taking care of tasks and errands people don't want to do (or don't have time to do) for themselves. These range from gift buying (either online or in person) to event planning. If you're organized and resourceful—and can land some well-moneyed clients—this kind of work can be quite lucrative.

Now, you can enjoy the income potential of being a landlord without the headaches! With a $500 investment, you can open a portfolio at Fundrise. You directly invest in properties located across the United States. Historical annual returns are between 8% and 12% which is similar to investing in the stock market. The main difference is that you don’t have the daily market swings.
The fact is many Americans, especially women, are becoming entrepreneurs. There has been phenomenal growth in women-owned businesses in the past few years and many of them either work at home or started their venture at home before moving to an office setting. The numbers vary in other parts of the globe, but it is a trend that is still increasing. Consider that according to the online magazine, betanews.com, 45% of US employees worked from home in 2015.
