Work from home? Here are some ideas on making it happen



Not long after I had my first child I made the conscious decision to try and stay at home as long as possible but like most tI needed to have some kind of stable income. I was already blogging at this point as well as doing some freelance writing and photo editing but I needed to approach it with a more business like manner to make it work. With the opportunities that are available on the Internet today, it’s only logical to consider using it as an opportunity to make some money online and possibly a new career. It’s no longer just for business owners and sellers, anyone can utilise it for their own advantage. You never know your business may take off and you need to employ people to work for you, if this is the case you will need to use the best HR software

Here are 5 ways people are doing just that.
Freelance Writing

If you’re an excellent writer, a good living can be made from online writing. There are literally hundreds of websites paying writers, and new market lists are coming out every day. Some sites will advertise what they pay, whereas others won’t, but you can make a few pennies per word. Whether you’re passionate about writing or just want to try it out, it’s a great opportunity to add to your income. You could also start your own blog and once it has grown an audience you can monetise it. 

Become an Online Teacher 

Whether you’re knowledgeable about a specific subject and have the right experience, you could start teaching online. Alternatively, what many people are getting involved in is teaching a language that they’re fluent in. There are millions of individuals who sign up to these courses as learning a new language is a very desirable skill (and often a necessity to some). Thus, if you’re confident enough in your ability and are willing to help educate others, you could make a great deal of money through this method.

Create a business from home 

Start Your Own Business

Starting your own internet business is becoming a very popular way to make money online. You need an idea, a marketing plan, and some basic skills. If you don’t have enough knowledge to develop an entire business, you could simply become an affiliate and sell items through a third-party website such as Amazon. Or, you could create your very own ecommerce website if you have a product or service in mind which you’d like to market. This can be very time consuming and requires a lot of dedication, but if you succeed you wouldn’t regret a single second. 

Online Psychic Readers

Qualified psychic readers are giving online readings on numerous subjects, ranging from finance and career, relationships and love, healing and health and even the paranormal. You’ve got to have the ability to give such readings, but those who do can potentially be in for quite the reward. Customers are eager to go online to chat with a psychic as it’s an extremely convenient way to get advice on support on key issues in their life. 
Become a YouTuber

What started off as a simple way to upload and watch videos has now become a profession to many. There are thousands of YouTubers throughout the world who have developed audiences and started making money through advertising on their channel. Seeing as there are millions of users, you ideally need to provide something unique in order to get noticed. Whether it’s your personality or your content, utilise it to market to an audience and you could become a star.



Making money online has become far easier over the past couple of years, especially for those in the creative industry or have a skill, craft or niche they can excel in. There are thousands of ways to do it, from taking online surveys to selling on eBay, but the above are a variety of 5 professions which could provide you with a greater income. If you’re interested in and have the necessary skills to be able to master one of the above, why not go for it?
