February 4, 2013 15 comments by Anna T

coffee cupFinding a work at home job is not always easy, so sometimes we have to think outside the box. If you can’t or don’t want to get a job working for someone else from home, consider working for yourself. If you can provide a service that you know someone else needs, there is potential for you to make money, period.

Starting your own business from home isn’t necessarily going to be a cake walk. There will likely be some sort of initial investment to even get started plus you’ll need to concentrate on marketing your business so that potential clients can find you.

Are you having trouble thinking of jobs you could create for yourself? Here is a big…

How to Manage On An Inconsistent Income

January 26, 2013 2 comments by Anna T

bigstock-Calendar-With-Pay-Day-Reminder-1168011One thing I noticed when I started earning money blogging is how inconsistent my income became! When I did other things online such as freelance writing, data entry, etc., my money came in like clockwork. The sites I worked for paid me on set days each week or month. It’s pretty easy to budget when you know when you’re getting paid.

Over the past year, I’ve earned a lot more money blogging than ever before. This has been great because it means I can spend more time blogging, which I truly enjoy, and less time doing other online work that I don’t enjoy quite as much since blogging now pays off more than it used to. But there is a downside…

If you’re interested in saving money and trying to do your taxes on your own, you can always take advantage of some of the online tax preparation services that are out there. These seem to get better and better every year, asking you all the right questions to help ensure you get as much money back as possible…

Five Tips For Getting Referrals

January 17, 2013 6 comments by Anna T

referralsIf you’ve ever done something online where you could benefit from getting referrals signed up under you, then you know how hard that can be! People are suspicious by nature. Referrals are not easy to come by no matter what you do, but here are a few tips that might help you a little:
Be Honest
People will be much more likely to sign up under you and try something if you are honest. Don’t make it sound too good to be true. Explain exactly what you do to earn the money or rewards and also give lots of detail on why you genuinely like the program. If there’s something you don’t like, share that too. People will trust that you’re being honest…

November 30, 2012 10 comments by Anna T

social media jobs from homeSocial media jobs are very sought after at the moment! And lucky for you, a lot of businesses are currently recruiting for it because they don’t really know how — or don’t have time — to manage the social media end of their businesses themselves.

October 18, 2012 34 comments by Anna T

pages to like on facebookYesterday, Miranda at Work at Home Adventures wrote a very interesting post about how a lot of people are resistant to signing up for Facebook and how this resistance could be detrimental to their efforts at finding legit work from home. This is very, very true because many of the job leads and other information I discover are found via Facebook and the various work at home related pages that I follow.
