If you are SICK of the corporate life, but know you need more than just the title (and the income) of Mama, listen up!
I have been working from home for 2 years now. This whole journey started after I had my fourth child. I knew I needed to make a decision for my growing family. I had a career I absolutely loved in sales and marketing but the long hours, late night phone calls, and the stress of always having to be available was too much. As an incredibly driven and motivated person this was a tough decision to make. I loved what I did but the lifestyle wasn’t working. So, I quit. Here I am, a stay-at-home mom to my 4 kids. Feeling completely smothered by them…and also feeling totally ALONE. Missing the friendship and connectivity that comes from working with others. I knew that I needed more. I needed to find my happiness outside of mommyhood. So I scoured the internet for ways to make money. I dug into my current skills, what skills I might need to learn, and I decided to build a business. Fast forward 2 years later, I have a multiple 6-figure income and I am helping others to do the same. I’m not going to sugar coat it- it was hard and I am constantly learning and refining, but I absolutely love it. I want you to know that it is possible. You, just as you are, can start today, grow your skill set, and build a business that is exactly what you want it to be! That is why I created this podcast.
IN THIS WEEK’S EPISODE I and bringing you the Top 7 Ways to Make Money from Home:
BECOME A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT: Be the right-hand person to an online business owner helping with things like email management, calendar management, travel booking, data entry, organization, and more!
SPECIALIZED ONLINE CONTRACTOR: Use a specialized skill set to help an online business as an independent contractor with one of these titles: Social Media Manager, Paid Ads Manager, Website Developer, Graphic Designer, YouTube Manager, Pinterest Manager, Videographer, Podcast Editor, SEO Manager, Content Creator, just to name a few. You can even set up an account on sites like Fiverr and UpWork, where hundreds of thousands of companies and individuals are looking to hire independent contractors either on a one-time project basis, or for recurring work!
COURSE CREATOR: If you have a skill and want to help others learn it, consider becoming a Course Creator. The online course space is going to be a billion dollar a day industry! Take your knowledge and put it in a course!
BUILDING A PERSONAL BRAND: If you have or can build a large following on social media, consider becoming an influencer! You can connect with brands and earn income by promoting their products and services. Fastest ways to do this is via video and getting your face out there.
VIRTUAL SALES: Have a knack for sales? Work for a coach, course creator, or for companies and brands you believe in to help them get their products in new customer’s hands!
CONSULTING: Take the skills you have and help others do the same thing! There are business owners or aspiring business owners out there looking to take a business to the next level. These people partner with an individual for one-on-one coaching.
WEBSITE AND SEO: Help businesses rank higher on Google (Brick and Mortar or Online Businesses).
These are real, legit ways to earn good money from home on your schedule. But, you are going to have to put some sweat into it. If you don’t have a skill, you are going to need to learn it. There are no ”Get Rich Quick” schemes out there that are going to turn you into a billionaire overnight. You have to have the grit and drive and be willing to go outside your comfort zone just like any other job. But, this isn’t any job, this type of work serves YOU and YOUR dreams, not someone else’s. Stop settling for mediocre and create the future you want.
