The Top 4 Ways to Make Money From Home
Sometimes you want to quit your job because you are tired of making money for someone else and receiving peanuts at the end of the month. Or you may have lost your job, thanks to the recent worldwide recession, or you may be a stay at home mom or dad looking to increase your income.
Here are my top four ways to make money from home:
1. Become a Virtual Assistant: A virtual assistant is like a call centre operator who works from home. You may also be a VA to a CEO or a VP, in which case you will be in charge of reading and replying to emails, making calls, preparing some presentations, making travel arrangements and even arranging meetings. You get paid by the hour and the pay ranges from $8 an hour right up to $20 a hour. Plus you get to work from home and at your own pace.
2. You can also become a writer and write for companies and individuals. Simple writing jobs include writing things like articles, or even rewriting material. More complex writing ranges from ghostwriting eBooks and newsletters to creating website copy and reports. This is the job to opt for if you are passionate about writing and would like to earn anywhere from $3.50 an article onwards.
3. Proofreading is another very viable work from home opportunity, especially since the number of proofreaders out there is drastically declining. If you opt for this job you need to be pretty good at spellings, grammar and punctuation.
4. Lastly, my top pick for work from home jobs is Data Entry. Anyone with a keyboard and an internet connection can do this, and a lot of companies out there are willing to pay you to enter their data to the internet or their databases.
