Work-from-home strategy

Working and earning cash from home can be a dream, but it can also be the real deal that changes your life. You can be skeptical of the methods of earning money by working at home, but they do exist. Here are some of them :

In some ways, freelancing is like contract work, in that you’re hired by a company to provide a service. In most cases, as a freelancer, you have even more control of your work, such as what you offer and how you do it, than in contract work. In most cases, freelancers work under their given name, usually as a sole proprietor. However, they can turn their freelance work into a business, offering the same services, but under a business name and different business structure (i.e. limited liability company).

Survey Taker: There are plenty of opportunities for scams in this industry, so you have to be careful. Avoid giving companies your sensitive information or paying upfront fees, as they’re likely to be fraudulent. There are, however, opportunities to make money at home by taking job surveys from legitimate companies. Elementary school substitute teacher Andrea Spain and her mother Bonnie Alcala take online surveys for two hours a week, ringing in around $100 a month in cash, gift cards, and other prizes.

Be clear about your working hours. “Post your hours of operation on your door, as with any office and stick to them. Indicate on your voicemail your hours of operation and refer the caller to your residence phone if it is personal,” says Denise Beeson, small business loan officer and business instructor at Santa Rosa Jr. College, in Santa Rosa, California. Pretend you’re not home. Don’t answer your home phone or door during business hours, advises Ron Sellers, president of Phoenix-based Grey Matter Research & Consulting. “That way, I’m never tempted to chat or take time off or slack off in any way, and I remain focused on business,” he says.

One of the easiest ways is to ensure you get paid weekly is to be self-employed and working directly with freelance clients. By eliminating the middleman (i.e. a freelance platform like Fiverr or Upwork) where payment can be delayed because the platform collects the payment, keeps a small percentage, and pays you at their convenience. By working directly with a client, you both decide on a payment schedule if the work is recurring. Since you work at home, the easiest payment method will be PayPal. You send an invoice once a job is completed and you receive the money as soon as the client approves the invoice.
