If you, like me, are an independent and career-driven woman, finding jobs that you can do from home can sometimes feel frustrating. You may be studying or just have kids and want to keep earning whilst having a bit of flexibility. With the right amount of research, you will be able to find something that suits your abilities and your passion levels. Here are some jobs you can do from home without any problem.
As a woman, it can be tough to figure out how you can go about making some money from home
As a woman, it can be tough to figure out how to make money from home. Here are some ideas for you:
- Use your skills in an area that women dominate. Women-owned businesses are growing at twice the rate of all companies combined. If this interests you, there’s no reason not to give it a shot!
- Consider starting up your own business.
- Try exploring ways your skills could be monetized (e.g., selling jewelry you make or knitted items).
- Consider using skills for freelance work or even starting a small business based on them (e.g., marketing yourself as a professional pet sitter).
Do your research! With the right amount of research, you can find something that suits your abilities. For example, if your passion is Makeup, look into becoming a makeup artist; if you have an extensive shoe collection, consider selling some to make extra cash. Also, look into what other people are doing in your area; for example, I live in Washington DC, and it wasn’t hard to see that parking was notoriously tricky; street parking is expensive and hard to come by. However, monthly parking in Washington DC is considerably cheaper, so if you have a parking space think about renting it out, the demand is there!
Here are some other jobs that you can do from home…
1. Become a writer
Freelance writing involves creating content for clients in various industries, including travel, lifestyle/food and beauty, for magazines and websites. Who doesn’t want to write about their passions? As with other freelance jobs, writers establish their own rates but typically earn $15-$20 per hour on average (based on experience). If you have strong written communication skills and knowledge about your subject area, this could be an ideal job option for you!
2. Sell items on Etsy or eBay
This is a great way to make money from home, but you must carefully consider what products you will sell. The best way to do this is by selling things you make yourself, like art or jewelry. This will ensure that they are unique and not mass-produced, which gives them more value for buyers.
Make sure your items are high quality as well. You wouldn’t want someone buying something nice only to break three days later! You don’t have to start doing everything yourself; if you don’t have time or skill yet, start by selling secondhand goods (i.e., clothes) until you build up enough capital to make new ones while still earning profit margins every month.
3. Become a virtual assistant
A virtual assistant is an online worker hired to perform administrative tasks for small businesses and individuals. Virtual assistants provide a wide range of services, including social media management, research, writing and editing text, data entry, and other clerical work. They might also be responsible for sending out invoices or following up on accounts payable work. It offers flexible work hours, which is excellent for people who have other responsibilities during the day.
There are many websites where you can offer your services as a virtual assistant: Upwork and Guru are two of the biggest ones, with millions of users worldwide. You’ll start earning once someone hires you—generally, they will pay between $10-$100 per hour depending on their needs; however, some people make even more than this!
Virtual assistants perform various tasks for clients, including organizing schedules and events, writing emails, running errands and researching information. Some virtual assistants specialize in specific areas, such as the legal industry or social media management. Virtual assistants can work remotely or set up an office at home. If you’re looking for a flexible job that allows you to work whenever it’s convenient for you, then becoming a virtual assistant is worth considering.
4. Do data entry work online
Data entry work involves typing up information from one document to another. For example, you need to enter addresses into an Excel spreadsheet. In this case, your documents are the address lists, and your spreadsheet is the final product. You can also do data entry remotely with various companies that hire freelancers for this sort of thing—which means no commuting!
You can use Upwork or Freelancer to find data entry or admin roles that pay around $15 to suit your needs.
There is a lot of information that you should have at hand when you want to make money from home as a woman.
One of the most important things is knowing what kind of work suits your abilities and passions. If you are not good at making sales, then trying to sell products online may not be right for you. It is better to find something else.
Other things include knowing what kind of work can be done from home and how much time it will take each day or week depending on what kind of job it is; this way if there are any problems with family commitments they can get resolved before they become bigger problems later on in life.
