Create your own business.
Yeah, I get it – that's easier said than done but it's the ONLY job you can do from home where you truly make the rules and so many people overlook this option when they're talking about working from home. This is exactly what I did, I started a graphic/web designer and have molded my business to fit my needs and expertise since then.Pro Tip: Your current corporate job may hold the key to what type of business you should start; are you an awesome bookkeeper? Do that. Do you love to do data entry or general admin tasks? Become a VA.
Ideas for skills that can be turned into a [successful] business:
- Web design
- Graphic design
- Virtual Assistance [Check out the Virtual Savvy for more info]
- Dog walking
- Direct Sales
- SO MUCH MORE!
Virtual Customer Service.
So many large companies use virtual staff to handle their customer service since it fits their needs better (hey 24 hour customer support) AND because it keep their overhead down so you should take advantage of this if that sounds like something you'd like.
Sites like Arise.com can help you find these jobs and apply but several companies post virtual positions in standard job postings and on job boards so definitely check those out.
Medical Data Entry.
I think this might be the oldest of the work at home jobs (outside of starting your own business) but it's one that thousands of people still do today. Medical transcriptionists and data entry professionals work from home every single day and there are even certifications to help you do these.
Work at home jobs in 2018 are in NO short supply but sometimes they can be daunting to look for and you're always afraid of being scammed on the Internet – I TOTALLY GET IT. So, hopefully this list helps get you started in the right direction.
