How to Work from Home and Earn Money
Have you ever asked yourself how can I work from home and earn money? How to work from home is not rocket science. People all over the globe are doing just that, working from home, and many of them are making a lot of serious money.
All it takes is just a few procedures that I intend to explain to help you decide if working from home is viable.
The Internet was the catalyst that made it possible for anyone to work from home. Whether it was offering services for big companies, to being an affiliate, to writing how-to books to sell online, or making your own products, people young and old alike are making the transition to working from home.
There is a lot of money to be made by being your own boss. The convenience, the necessity, the tax savings, they all play a big role in providing reasons to at least try to work from home.
See my other post about how to make money in affiliate marketing.
There are hundreds of markets that are ideal for the entrepreneur that use their home for their office. Traveling salesmen have been doing this for years. More and more people are expanding into this realm of income producing revenue because of convenience:
- Mothers with children to raise
- Students who are going to school full-time
- Traveling distance to work
- Lack of transportation, or the sheer expense
These are just a few of conveniences of working from home. The cost of a babysitter or daycare for children is an extremely expensive undertaking. Many Moms today see the majority of their whole paycheck go towards this expense.
By them staying at home to raise their children and making money online, they benefit two-fold; first the quality time spent with children, and also making an income by working from home.
Students attending school full-time also can benefit from having their own business online, because they can work it when it is convenient to them. They don’t have to punch a clock or have to worry about travel time and expenses. Not to mention many students are actually making enough money to totally fund their educational needs, such as:
- School tuition
- Books and supplies
- Off-campus room and board
Besides just the convenience, the necessity of working from home is at an all time high. Just look at how many people today are unemployed! The ability to secure income again with another same level job is almost non-existent.
The recession that we face has put even the most secure employment at risk. So the necessity to make extra income by working at home is more reason than not to at least attempt it.
- Laid off from full time employment
- Not able to work due to temporary or permanent disability
- Substituted higher paying job with lower paying job, due to layoff or relocation
- Catastrophes like medical, divorce or death of a family member.
- Sheer expenses far exceed income
The tax savings by having a real business in your home, known as a Home-Based business, is an extremely attractive alternative to working away from home. A home-based business is treated just like any other brick and mortar business.
The tax deductions given to a home-based business versus an employee can save thousands of dollars every year. That in itself can more than make up for any lost wages due to a job loss. The advantages are overwhelming, which is another great reason to investigate the home-based business opportunity.

The number one thing a person needs to work from home is desire. It can be a desire to make extra money. It can be a desire to stay at home to raise a family. It can be a desire to help others achieve their goals. What ever the reason may be, it is possible, doable, and rewarding. Just look at the number of websites on the Internet versus just five years ago. The number is daunting.
Staying committed to your home-based business without getting tired of it is an necessity. That is why everywhere you hear do something you have a passion for. If you have a passion for cooking, for example, why not go into business as a caterer, publish your own cookbook, or create unique food gift baskets to sell online or at the local gift shop.
Having a passion will make all tasks seem less of a chore and more of an enjoyment. You will do a better job when you have a passion for doing the job. You will have less stress, get more done in less time, and feel like your energy level is not drained.
Having a passion will drive you to be more creative and not cut corners. The satisfaction you will have when the day is finished will do more good for you than any job you may have had working for someone else.
Work from Home Ideas
To work from home can be started easily in just a part-time status. One very good place to start is eBay. Many people work eBay as a hobby, but even more people find serious income from operating a home-based business selling on eBay.
First of all, eBay already has an established base of Internet traffic. All you have to do is open an account, create your own store front, and start selling. To learn more about how easily done this is, get a copy of my Master Guide of selling online.

Amazon.com is another extremely great place to make extra income from. You don’t even have to open a store front there. Just be an affiliate to Amazon and get paid by directing web traffic to Amazon. Again, to learn more about all the different techniques that can be used to make extra income by working at home get a free copy of my Master Guide to selling online.
Open up your own day-care facility, at home. Then all your expenses are business related. Not only are all your expenses tax-deductable, but if you already have children, then you don’t have the expense of paying some one else to care for your children.
Create or build your own products to sell to other local businesses, or sell them yourself online. There are literally hundreds of different niches that you can enter that will make extra income. Some of these niches have very low competition so the profit margin is very high.
If you have a talent for making wooden toys, for example, why not make them and sell locally? What about art? Can you draw or paint a picture and sell at your local flea market? Repairing computers? Can you open a business at home repairing your friend’s computers? Soon that can lead into a viral explosion of their friends contacting you about their computers.
The ideas above are no where near the endless possibilities of starting your own business working from home. Everyone has a talent in something. Whether it is doing it yourself, or knowing someone who has the expertise, you have a talent that can be used to make money. You can use that talent, or just keep procrastinating.
