Since I quit working a “traditional” job in the big, bad world outside of my home, people are always asking me: “HOW can you make enough money at home to survive?”
Keep reading, because in this series of posts I’m going to outline some of the better companies I’ve come across that will allow you to stay in your pajamas and work from home! Whether you just want to make some extra cash, or you’re dying to flee your day job forever, there are some great companies/websites out there to help you do just that!
I know if you’ve spent years out there in the trenches, it’s hard to believe that it’s possible to have the luxury of sitting on the couch with your laptop on the coffee table and your dog by your feet, but the truth is there are a lot of great websites out there that can really help you “bring home the bacon”.
Working from home is an especially tempting idea if you have kids. Spend a few minutes with a calculator and add up what you spend on childcare, gas money/transportation fees, parking costs, professional clothing, lunches out and your daily $4 coffee from Starbucks, and THEN see what your real “wage” is after you’ve deducted all these expenses. Working from home allows you to completely cut out most of these money-drainers, and gives you more time spend with your kids, your dog or your pajamas and slippers.
I use a variety of methods/websites to make money at home. My primary focus is on content writing and editing for various websites and clients, but trust me when I say that no matter what your talents are, there is a place for you to make money on the internet!
This is a great site I started working with recently, and I’d like to start with them because no matter what your profession or talent, you can find a way to make money from it on this site!
Ever hear of the “microjob” site Fiverr, where people post “gigs” they are willing to do via the internet for only $5? Taskmitigator is sort of like that, except (and HUGE bonus!) you can set a price for your work yourself and charge anywhere from $7 to $100! Here are some more details:
- With categories like Advertising, Writing, Translating, Music, and Graphics and Design, this is a great place for anyone to find work (example: I offer to write content articles for people’s websites). I’ve even heard of people making money reading Tarot cards, giving tips and hints for video gaming, etc. Endless possibilities here…
- It’s quick and easy to register…simply create an account, upload a photo, and describe and price your “gig”.
- Payment is made securely via PayPal (if you don’t have a PayPal account yet, and plan on working from home, sign up for one pronto…it’s very simple!)
- The customer service/support team on this site is EXTREMELY helpful and friendly.
- Taskmitigator also pays you to refer your friends and family to this site…now that’s easy money.
Click here to learn more about them or to sign up for an account…it only took me 24 hours to get some jobs from this site!
