We have all woken up on a Monday morning right before your alarm is set to go off. You’re not going to use that extra time to your advantage; you’ll lay in bed fantasizing about working from home. Luckily for you, working from home doesn’t have to remain a fantasy, so let’s delve into some home-based career options for you!
Offer Online Tutoring Sessions
Whether your expertise lies in math and science, art history, or speaking French, there will always be someone who will be looking for a little extra help. The way you conduct your sessions is entirely up to you, are you more comfortable doing a video call, or do you find a live chat to be more effective? Whatever your teaching or tutoring style is, there are bound to be struggling students eager to pay for your help.
Open An Etsy Store
With online shopping as popular as ever, opening your own online store to sell unique or handmade items might be the right option for you. Many Etsy customers are on the hunt for hard-to-find products, and if you can provide shoppers with those very items, your store is bound to be a success.
Drive For A Ridesharing Company
Driving for a rideshare company will afford you the ability to maintain your own schedule while making good money, receiving tips, and perfecting your Spotify playlist. Some rideshare companies will even offer you perks and benefits based on the number of rides you provide each month.
Become A Freelance Writer
If you’ve got a passion for writing, freelance writing might be the right home-based career for you to pursue. The type of projects you’ll work on will vary greatly; you may be enlisted to help a fellow writer complete their own personal project, or you may work primarily on shorter, more general articles.
Buy And Sell Vehicles
By purchasing inexpensive cars through independent sellers, you will be able to update your stock regularly. Of course, in a career like this, you will have to consider your expenses, like making the necessary repairs to the vehicle as well as vehicle shipping.
Become An Airbnb Host
Consider cleaning up that seldom-used spare bedroom, investing in some homey bedroom furniture, and opening your home up to sleepy tourists. Similar to that of driving for a rideshare company, you have complete control over the availability, pricing, and house rules.
With the popularity of thrift-stores and vintage shopping on a steady rise, so is the need for the skilled work of a seamstress or tailor. If you play your cards right, you may even find yourself partnering with a thrift store meaning, when their customers need alterations, they will refer them to you.
If you aren’t comfortable with the idea of opening your home to strangers, consider opening your home to their pets. Not only do you get to set your own schedule and pricing, but you also get to do it while being surrounded by cute pets.
Start a Podcast
These days it seems like there are more people hosting their own podcasts than aren’t, so why not give it a try? Find an interesting topic that you are passionate and knowledgeable in, buy some at-home recording equipment and release your first episode!
Call Center Representative
Many companies will offer employees the opportunity to work from home, often as a call service representative. This may seem like the perfect option, but you will be on your own for the most part, so having a familiarity with call center software features will give you a huge advantage.
