Hello again, last time we were talking about working from home and how to avoid those work from home scams. Today I want to let you know about home based typing jobs that actually work and how I make most of my money working from home.
Now as you know, I spent a year trying to find some reasonable work from home opportunities, and I bet you I spent over a thousand dollars trying different programs. Really, that should be work from home scams that I spent my money on. I’m upset about having spent a thousand dollars, but I’m more upset about the year I spent trying to find a legitimate work at home job. But I finally did, and I actually found a few and there is one in particular that I am using right now to make most of my money.
So let me just let you know that yes, there are real work at home jobs out there that you can find and make living from doing. I don’t think you’ll be able to get rich, but like I said, I’ve been able to make $500 a day on a couple of occasions. Now that was rare but it is doable.
This year, my money from home should be between $35k and $40k. Which is more than I made when I worked my last office job. And the great thing is, I get to spend time with my kids and I only put in between 25 and 30 hours a week to do that.
The kind of work I’m doing in order to earn this money are home based typing jobs that you could easily do. All you need is a computer and internet. And you don’t have to be a web tech savvy kind of person. There is no need to build websites or any of that kind of stuff.
If you can surf the net, reply to emails and that sort of thing, you can earn money from home with the kind of home based typing jobs that I’m talking about. Just remember that whatever it is you’re looking at doing from home that if it sounds too good to be true, then usually it is.
One of the first work from home businesses I tried, and actually it turned out to be a scam was stuffing envelopes. Looking back now, I can’t believe that I actually thought it would be a legitimate work from home job. I guess I was naive and we can all fall for that kind of thing once in a while.
So my best tip is to think about what it is you’ll actually be doing. For example, they have machines that stuff envelopes, so why would a company pay you to stuff envelopes when it is cheaper and more expedient to have a machine do it?
Home based typing jobs are the best kinds because machines can’t type and make sense of language like we can. So my next post will be about how I make money from home with home based typing jobs. And the best part about all of this is that I only get paid on results. That was one of the key reasons why I knew it was legitimate. These real work from home jobs are based on results which can actually be measured.
September 2011 Update:
Since I origingally wrote this post more than a year ago now, I’ve started to see great success with my own blogs that I have that I’m writing on and earning money. It takes longer this way, but the rewards are worth it. I know longer respond to surveys and that type of stuff that I did in the beginning. It is still a good way to make some quick cash if you need some money now, but over 90% of my money now is made through blogging, that is why I am now recommending The Keyword Academy almost exclusively. It’s not a scam but it’ll take you about a year to build a good income of around $1k or more per month. Some folks have managed to make over 6 figures a year with this program. I have not been that lucky, but I’ll be making $30k to $40k this year, perhaps more if Christmas is good to me.
