Working from home!
The ultimate entrepreneur’s dream.
You can definitely do it! Here are some tips I suggest to have you land your dream work from home position and quit your day job!
First, start with some research. Figure out what you’d like to do. Do you want to operate an online store? Sell in a marketplace? Become a freelance writer? Once you hone in on what you want to do, don’t hesitate, get started!
Start from day one. Building a work from home empire takes time. It can be overwhelming but if you promise yourself to complete one task or activity daily, you will get there in time.
Here are some resources you can use, depending on work from home path you decide to take:
Start a Blog: Pick a blog name, buy the domain, get hosting (from Bluehost), pick a platform (WordPress, my dear), select a blog theme, start writing! For a step-by-step guide, check out The Foolproof Way to Start a Blog.
You can also check out Craigslist, Flexoffers, and traditional job boards like Monster or Careerbuilder.
Contact sites directly. Many companies offer freelancers at a rate of $50-$800 per article.
Google these terms: write for, write for us, $50 per article, etc. Then, contact sites of interest.
Next, time for cold pitching.

Work from home (general): Search Pinterest for work from home. There will be TONS and TONS of opportunities that pop up, as well as some incredible articles with huge lists of companies that hire work from home or remote workers.
BUILD YOUR EMPIRE
This is where social media comes into play. If you are taking the entrepreneur road, check out Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Set up professional accounts for your business and be active! Join social media groups like Facebook groups or Pinterest group boards.
Participate in Twitter chats and Instagram group direct messages. Set up a LinkedIn profile and showcase your professional history and background.
Make sure to have a professional email and phone number (if needed).
Network with peers to learn what they know and collaborate!
TAKE A LEAP
Once you’ve attained success and it’s time to walk away from your day job, do so gracefully. Happy dance!
