This is the million dollar question that everybody is asking as the economy is shifting towards Telecommuting.
Well, there is a straightforward answer for this.
Yes, you can.
You can make a good income or may be even more working from home. If you are just starting out, it will take some time, but it’s possible.
I never believed that I could earn a good income without going to a job. Working from home never appealed to me as a good earning option.
But I went ahead and tried it out and here I am with a good job and high income, all in the comfort of my home.
Most of us don’t believe in the idea of high paying work from home jobs or telecommuting jobs because it sounds too good to be true.
But it is true.
It is the common misconception that people who work from home like freelancers, bloggers, web researchers, affiliate marketers, online entrepreneurs only have these vocations like side hustle. That’s not true.
You need to have the right mindset to focus on what you want to do and do it.
Nobody would believe me if I don’t show you proof.
Here goes the list of online entrepreneurs who are making a killing with their work from home jobs, freelancing or blogging.
Carol Tice does an amazing job of helping other writers to earn a good living while freelancing. Her website and her writing have been recognized by Writers Digest 101 as Best Website for Writers. I often visit her blog when I have some writing hiccups.
She even does a one-on-one mentoring program which is exclusive and has awesome reviews.
Michelle Dale is behind Virtual Miss Friday, who runs a Virtual Assistant business providing support services to business and individuals. She has worked as a Virtual Assistant earlier on in her career. I stumbled on Michelle’s blog on Yaro Starak’s podcast.
Michelle owns this blog, and she writes about personal finance and freelance writing and lifestyle topics. She is killing it with her affiliate income making around $50,000 only from affiliates. She has recently released her Affiliate Income Strategies course.
I have been following her blog for some time and I am very inspired by her writing and diverse topics she covers.
Lindsay and Bjork together make a great team on the blog and real life. The blog is all about food and recipes. It started out as a hobby which converted to a hugely monetizing opportunity and a creative one at that.
It is interesting that they also have an ebook related to Food Photography and monetize around the photography angle of the food as well.
They post their income reports every month, which helps the readers to get an insight about monetizing a food blog.
Caitlin Pyle is the blogger behind this blog, and she has been transcript proofreading since 2009. She offers courses for transcript proofreading and also has a 7-day introductory trial course for beginners.
Her course has many testimonials, and many of her students are earning a good income.
Abby Lawson’s blog is all about organizing, decorating and DIY. She also has some good topics about blogging. It’s really inspiring to see the readership and traffic she gets on her blog. She also has many ebooks like Building a Framework, Bookboss and more.
It would be hard to believe that one can make a real income with a niche which is so common and may be even saturated. Abby does a great job.
This blog is all about tips for startups, businesses and anyone who wants to start off in blogging. Harsh Agarwal runs the blog and has made a quite a big name for himself.
He talks about SEO, Marketing Tips, Affiliate Marketing and other tips around the blogosphere. The blog also has a very active forum for like-minded bloggers. Harsh made over $29,659 in June.
All the above bloggers or writers are from different streams or backgrounds and write about various topics. But the one thing common in all of them is they all make a good living without being in a 9-5 job.
Even if you don’t want to blog or write about your freelancing, there are many side hustles which will surely make you more than your day job.
I hope I have made my point and wish this post inspires you to take the leap and start your journey on finding your financial freedom.
Have you even thought of working from home?
