You may be getting sick of that stuffy office and fluorescent lighting. Am I right? I did and am beyond grateful that I get to work from home full time now as a software and systems analyst. When I got laid off from my last job, I was quickly discouraged about where to go from there. One thing I knew for sure was that I did not want to waste hours in traffic everyday and wanted to be happier in my job.

I was lucky enough to come across an I.T. employer on indeed that all of their offices are virtual, meaning everyone works from home across the U.S. doing various jobs throughout various departments. I can say I get about 100% more work done working from home. It truly is the way of the future for working environments if you are in a field similar to mine. Think about the amount of money both the company and yourself would be saving if most companies ran virtual offices instead of physical ones they had to pay rent and insurance on.

Having said my point on why I stand behind virtual working conditions, I want to share with you on ways you can also work from home in a variety of fields!

Among the best ways to work from home are:

We are in a technological revolution after all. It is now possible to work from home doing whatever you want.

Welcome to 2017.

Utilize job search engines.

Where do you look if you are looking or a job that is 100% remote. I looked at all the job search engines and the least likely one I thought would work was the one landing me this awesome job. It eventually gave me the financial freedom, spare time and idea to get this site up and running. My next step from working from home for someone else , is working from home for myself.

So what search engines do you know? Look at them all. Here are a couple of suggestions.

These search engines will have an advanced search feature that will allow you to search for work from home jobs. To filter the results to your advantage, use the ‘Location’ field and type in either ‘Work From Home’, ‘Remote’ or ‘Telecommuting’.

Scroll through what appeals to you and your field, and apply to all you think would work for you. Some require travel like mine does once a year.

Sell/ resell stuff online.


You can either sell your own things online or resell items you purchased for the intention of resale. Reselling your own things online gets pretty easy and sets a steady cash flow pretty quickly if you are a collector. My wife collects guitars and after collecting too many over the years, started selling them on eBay and now makes an extra $500 bucks a month just selling random guitars. I know a handful of people that do this for a living.

You can resell other peoples items pretty easily as well. Visit an auction for some antiques that may have a market still to resell on ebay. Buy items like records, books, electronics, furniture to resell for a higher price. Check out junk yards for car parts or estate sales for tools and furniture.

The networks you can do the best with selling items online or flipping/reselling items online are as follows:

  1. Hi! We live in some exciting times providing more freedom for people to work from home, according to their own schedule. I have been freelance for most of my career. It is great but sometimes I am craving a bit more structure and real-life interaction with people!

  2. It takes true determinatin to work from home! For me I would find it hard, even when writing posts whilst at home, their are far too many distractions.

  3. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!

    1. I just go for it!

  4. Hi! I’ve been following your website for some time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic job!
