Not everyone writes well or enjoys writing enough to put the necessary hours into writing for income. That's okay. The idea is to find something you enjoy and can do well while making money. It should have potential for passive income- income from something you do once and get paid over and over again.
If you want to figure out how to work from home, look at your current skills first for work from home ideas. Consider these questions to get ideas:
What do you enjoy doing?
What do your friends or family ask you to do for them?
How would you describe your talents?
What resources do you have to dedicate to starting a home business (time, money)?
Would you like something you could do completely from home or would you be comfortable interacting with clients?
These are just some of the ways to generate a list of work from home ideas. A skills inventory is simply a list of your skills. By looking at your skills inventory and the answers to those questions, some legitimate work from home business ideas may be apparent. I will discuss the benefits and disadvantages of some work from home jobs in upcoming posts as well as how to get customers for home businesses.
One important note: Avoid work from home scams! If the business opportunity charges an upfront fee and claims to be an easy way to make real money, chances are that it's a scam. In this blog, I will only be discussing legitimate work from home business ideas, not "online turn-key cash machines," MLM or other questionable work from home opportunities.
