This is the million-dollar question that everybody is asking as the economy is shifting toward telecommuting.
Well, there is a straightforward answer to the question of whether you can make a good income online.
Yes, you can.
You can make a good income, or maybe even more, by 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 from 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 a common misconception that people who work from home like freelancers, bloggers, web researchers, affiliate marketers, or online entrepreneurs only have these vocations as a side hustle. That’s not true.
You need to have the right mindset to focus on what you want to do and just do it.
Nobody would believe me if I didn’t show you proof.
Here goes the list of online entrepreneurs who are making a killing from their work-from-home jobs, freelancing, or blogging.
Make a Living Writing
Founded by six-figure freelancer, 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’s 101 Best Websites 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.
Virtual Miss Friday
Michelle Dale, the person behind Virtual Miss Friday, runs a virtual assistant business providing support services to business and individuals. She started the company with no funds and knowledge and grew the company to multi-6 figures and have facilitated 100k+ launches. She worked as a virtual assistant earlier on in her career. I stumbled on Michelle’s blog on Yaro Starak’s podcast.
Making Sense of Cents
Michelle Schroeder-Gardner owns this blog, and she writes about personal finance, 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 Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course.
I have been following her blog for some time, and I am very inspired by her writing and the diverse topics she covers.
Pinch of Yum
Lindsay and Bjork together make a great team on the blog and in real life. Pinch of Yum is all about food and recipes. It started out as a hobby that converted into a hugely monetized 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 readers to get an insight into monetizing a food blog.
Caitlin Pyle is the blogger behind this proofreading blog, and she has been transcript proofreading since 2009. She offers a course 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.
Just a Girl and Her Blog
Abby Lawson’s blog is all about organizing, decorating, and DIY. She also has some good articles 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’s hard to believe that one can make a real income with a niche that is so common and may even be saturated. Abby does a great job.
ShoutMeLoud is all about tips for startups, businesses and anyone who wants to start off in blogging. Harsh Agrawal runs the blog and has made 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 business, there are many side hustles that will surely make you more than your day job.
I hope I have made my point and that this post inspires you to take the leap and start your journey to finding your financial freedom.
Have you even thought of working from home?
