A woman working at home giving a high-five to her cat.There are many people looking for ways to earn money at home, either part time or as a full time career. It is even more true now that the COVID shutdowns showed us all how many jobs can be handled remotely. If you are able to earn a living working from home, please tell us how you do it.

We aren't looking for self promotion or MLM opportunities and we won't be posting access codes or personal links, only legitimate employment opportunities. We would rather find out how you discovered your work at home opportunity and what were the benefits and challenges involved.

I am a full time virtual assistant. Have been for almost 5 years as a solopreneur.

Basically I am a secretary/admin assistant for clients who need to do their best when they delegate to me. I have had clients all over the US.

All work is done remotely. I email projects or drop them into Google or One Drive or Dropbox files. Rarely I put files on CD or jump drives and hand them off to the clients. I make phone calls, I do data entry, design eye catching PowerPoints, design Excel spreadsheets, and much more.

Don't fall for scams that tell you can can be a VA with no skills and only work a few hours a day and make money. Not true. They are MLM type scams where you sell lies to other vulnerable people.

I work 40+ hours a week and it is work like any other job, but I am my own boss.

You need to have skills in your niche. A niche is the type of work you do. VAs can be social media managers, do calendar management, do research, writing etc. You have to be a go-getter and well organized.

I am happy to share more if anyone is interested.

It's P/T but dog sitting/walking has worked out well in my neighborhood. I lost my 18 year old pup 6 months ago and it's been nice being able to spend time w/ sweet little fur babies again also.

Writers (business materials, social media content, technical documents) and commercial artists, website designers, editors (student papers, white papers for corporate employees), research assistants ... quite a lot of work can be done from a home office. One of my associates is a photographer without a studio: she travels wherever her clients need her.

If you have a specialty and experience, are prepared to treat your work like a real job and commit to regular working hours (full- or part-time), are prepared to market yourself / your skills, there's nothing stopping you from starting your own small business and working from home.

I have found that there are many available jobs that are remote on the temp agency job sites - Aston Carter is the one I currently work for. Temp agencies even offer benefits now.

I don't do it, as I have a full-time job, but certified teachers can do virtual tutoring or teaching online.

There are so many jobs that are done remote. This helps with gas travel, food, child care , in some cases. Most of these jobs are flexible hours and can range from taking orders, trouble shooting, appointments, messaging, etc.

In many cases a remote job gives you a more THRIFTY life.
