Different options for making money from home.

  • Handcrafted items and selling online/ Etsy/ local vendor events (great to do as a family)
  • Not talented enough to do crafts? Options online to design and sell your own tShirts/ mugs/ etc. and you don’t even have to keep any inventory. (Teespring/ Cafepress just to name 2)
  • Multi-Level Marketing (not for everyone but if you have an outgoing personality and a lot of supportive friends/ family these can be super successful)
  • Blogging for profit (Elite Blog Academy)
  • VIPKid (must have a four year degree for this one but pays $14-$22 an hour for teaching English language online)
  • Medical Transcription (Deb Burns – free one hour webinar offer)

How do you know what is right for your situation and budget needs?

  • All work from home opportunities come with risk, some more than others.
  • To some degree all work from home opportunities have start up costs and require extra time devoted to the building of its foundation.
  • Some things require skill immediately and others require just a passion to begin. All will require effort and attention to grow and sustain.
  • It is important to sit down with your spouse and discuss the following:
    • What job will work best for your personality and skill set?
    • What job do you see as being something you can potentially stick with and continue building long term?
    • Are there any budget concerns that need to be addressed when it pertains to start up costs with one vs. another?
    • What is the end goal of your pursuing this? Is this meant to be a hobby or a legitimate income source? How much are you expected to bring in per month and what is the expectation for hours worked?

Choosing to work from home can be very satisfying on many levels. For my personality, I need something that feels like mine separate from homemaking and homeschooling. I pour my creative energy into what I do and it is therapeutic. It also fulfills a need for us financially and that is important too.
