Keep your eye out for opportunities!
What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing?
What would you like to be doing?
Proofreading, writing, sewing, shopping, cooking, art, customer service, bookkeeping, Web design, handwriting, merchandising, moderating websites, recruiting, selling, assembling, blogging, etc.
No matter what your niche is, there are lots of ways people are turning their personal niche into making money from home. Nearly anything that can be done out-of-the home can be done twice as nice in the home.
Well, you have to get out there and meet people. Other work-at-home individuals are always interested in hiring help in areas they need help in from people who work from home too. But they have to know about you and know what it is that you are good at first! So join a work at home forum like Work-at-Home Mafia or Work-at-Home Mom. Tell people what you are good at and what you like to do.....they just might need your services or know of someone else who does. Networking is meeting others and opening up opportunities for yourself.
For instance, on a work-at-home forum that I frequent, I posted something on there about proofreading at one time, many times members have asked me to proofread their websites and have paid me generously for my services. Paid to do something I enjoy! =)
A friend of mine is an awesome writer, she started blogging and is making a lot of money doing that! Also, she is creative and has started working for a jewelry store owner and she has been making jewelry at home for her. She is making good money doing that!
I know a gal who has beautiful handwriting and she offers elegant handwriting services to customers that are seeking personalized, handwritten invitations for weddings and other special events that don't have the time or the penmanship to do it themselves. She is making good money doing something she loves......from home!
I have seen ads on work at home forums, Craigslist.org and other job sites for people/small business owners seeking everything from a person to sew handbags from home to a bookkeeper to help pay bills from home. Whatever your niche.....somebody is looking for your services!
Keep your eye out for those opportunities......they do exist!
