Most of the posts on this blog are about working at home for other people. However, there are a lot of fantastic things about working from home for yourself! Some of the best things about working for yourself include being in complete control of your own hours, setting your own rates for your products and services, and the fact that there isn’t as much of a “cap” on your income.
Are you bilingual and know that you could be making money using your second language? Do you want to work from home doing something that will allow you to use your second language? Well, there are many opportunities to do so. I will touch on some of the best work-at-home jobs at the best companies. When I say “best”, I mean in terms of good reputation and ratings.
Credit Sesame is how I’ve been checking my credit score for three years now. Although you can get your credit score for free from all three bureaus once a year, it’s very handy to keep tabs on it month to month. Especially considering that so many work at home employers want to check it before they’ll hire you. Credit Sesame will give it to you for free without making you sign up for a trial.
Over the last few years, I’ve occasionally seen a “work at home job” making the rounds promising that you can get paid to simply read news articles online. It comes and goes under different company names, most recently News Range, Circum News, MultiTrendo, Fifty News, Lucki News, and several other domains. Unfortunately, no one ever gets paid for this.
Do you want to work for yourself but not on a computer all day? Do you own a commercially insured and licensed vehicle? Do you enjoy interacting with people? If so, you can probably make money driving people around and earn up to $25 an hour. Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar are three popular ridesharing services that are constantly hiring drivers. All three pay weekly or daily.

In about a month (or less), most kids will be returning to school. Many of my readers have let me know that they really want to work from home, but have to find something that can be done during traditional school hours, so they can work while their kids are gone for the day — and be done right around the time they get back. So today I’ve done some research to find the best of these jobs.
Today we’re talking about Career Step, a Dave Ramsey-endorsed, very popular online school for aspiring medical transcribers. Many medical transcribers are able to earn $34,000 per year or more once trained and certified. Career Step provides this training (self-paced) and has a great program for military spouses to get started cheaper. They also offer affordable payment plans.
I’ve been using rewards sites to earn extra cash and Amazon gift codes since probably 2006 or 2007 — when my oldest was just a baby. This was also when I first began to seriously look for ways to make money from home. Of course, it didn’t take long for me to realize that these rewards sites were in no way going to replace my income, but I still found them to be a bit addictive.
Do you think you’d enjoy working from home, booking cruises for others? If so, you’re in luck because there are quite a few companies that have regular openings for this type of work. Keep in mind it’s phone work, so all of you non-phone job seekers may not find this is your cup of tea. Unfortunately not all of these companies are hiring right now, but you may want to keep tabs on them.
