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:

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 Your Services On Fiverr or Upwork.



Be your own boss and use your skills to create your own job. Work from home and work for yourself.

Fiverr is a network of working people who offer services and people who come to fiverr looking to get tasks done that they aren’t fit to complete or don’t have the time. It is an amazing idea if you think about. What is best about fiverr is that is all free to sign up and use! You only pay when you are paying someone on fiverr to complete a task for you. Plus, you keep 80% of each transaction.

Here are the steps to start selling your useful skills.

1.Create A Gig

After you sign up, set up your Gig, and offer your services to the global audience.

2.Deliver Great Work

The fiverr system will notify you when you get an order and prompt you to discuss details with your customers.

3.Get Paid

Payment is transferred to you upon order of completion. Simple as that!

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:

    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!

    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!

    I’ve worked from home for the past 10 years. My career job is in I.T for corporate America and I’m also a blogger (my hobby). At first I found it challenging to stay focused with all of the around the house distractions. Now, I have to be careful to get out and about or I’ll get cabin fever. All that being said, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    I love the quiet atmosphere of working from home. Without the distractions of an office, I can stay focused on my work and complete tasks quickly.

    I’m starting to finally branch off the just writing part of blogging and becoming more serious about making money from home… thanks for the info, it was perfect timing : ) I’ll be sure to check out a few ideas you’ve mentioned : )

    I was just seeking this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.

    1. admin

      My site is still in its early stages which is why it has not ranked high enough yet on google. IT has only been up for a month and a half. It takes time to gain high ranking in Google.

    There is no doubt that virtual offices and workplaces are here to stay and using the internet allows you to build you own income stream to a global audience. This does have many upsides and challenges also, depending on your knowledge level. Nevertheless there are few things you can’t overcome if you have the required determination. Great post.

    I work about 10 hours a day every day, but on my days off I even work from home. It’s only because I don’t have coverage at the office so if I don’t, it will turn into a circus when I get back. I would love to be able to work from home full time because as you say, I get so much more done. But at home I don’t have to answer the phone! I think that is the difference.

    I am trying all these methods but not seem to have any luck. I haven’t monetized my blog but I never started it to make money from it and it is also a very niche subject but have tried fiverr and selling things online without any success. Do you have any advice or posts related to those?

    The virtual world began many, many years ago with Virtual Assistants – maybe industries even sooner than that. Web Site designers were working virtually well before VAs. I joined the virtual work force around 2001 as a Virtual Assistant then Web Site designer. I’ve never looked back. The IT world has been working remotely for almost as long – if not longer. Now I do grief coaching via video conferencing. It’s a wonderful world.
