The office life isn’t for everyone. The early morning rush, the hot, stuffy environment, and the inevitable office politics all make working in a big business irritating and annoying. If you want an alternative, you can consider working from home. Many people want to run their own career and escape the rat race. You might be wondering about the type of careers that you can pursue without heading to the office each morning. Well, there are a four great possibilities to consider here.
Trade Your Way To Victory
Professional traders used to work only on Wall Street. Not anymore. Now, it is possible to be a trader from your couch. According to CMC Markets, forex trading is one of the best possibilities you can sink your teeth into when working from home as a trader. There are plenty of apps you can access to get started, and before long you could be making solid levels of profit on a daily basis. With the advanced tech and software available on the market today, you can trade on virtually any market from the comfort of your bedroom - but just know that trading can be risky so really learn your markets and companies before jumping in head first.
Write Your Own Paycheck
We mean that literally too. You can make a great career out of writing online. Set yourself up as a freelancer and you’ll be able to write for bloggers, full business owners, and private clients. You will need to make sure that you stand out if you are going to be selected out of all the other writers who are hoping to be chosen. To do this, you need to build up a solid portfolio of work that highlights your commitment to quality and demonstrates that you can write in a diverse range of tones and styles on an eclectic range of topics. How much can you earn writing online? Salaries may start at thirty thousand a year and climb depending on level of skill and talent.
Event Organizers don’t need an office. Some organizers will buy an office in the hope of impressing clients and getting contracts, but you don’t need one. You can create the same effect with a quality web design and ensure that you do wow them with your own personal style when you meet in person. And, if you are worried about creating the right impression, you can always rent an office for a day to meet with a client. This will workout at a far cheaper cost compared to actually working in one on a daily basis.
The Insta Elite
Last week I talked about the work of a blogger. Along those same lines, you can make money purely by getting active on social profiles like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. I will would note that this is a long game - i.e. I would not quit everything you are doing to start making money in a month on social media. You have to build an audience, engage authentically, and hone in on your niche. All of these take time if you do them right. But, it can become a full-time career, just ask Kylie Jenner. Of course, if you aren’t celebrity royalty, you will have your work cut out for you as i have mentioned above but that’s true for any career. At least for social media, the barriers to entry are quite low and its often a project you can start while working another job.
You see, there’s really no need to head to the office each day. Your home can be the perfect launch point for a fantastic, fabulous new career. I would love to hear your work at home ideas!
