This doesn’t have to be YOU!

Everyone loves money! If you’re looking for extra cash, we’ve done everything for you aside from writing you the check.

Typically, finding a legitimate work from home job is hard.

There’s no doubt about it, work at home scams are rampant!

More…

You’ve seen it- “Stuff envelopes from home and make $5,000 a month!” (Puh-lease!)

 People only fall for it because they want to believe it. They still believe it even after having to PAY for the ‘opportunity’ to stuff envelopes!

Poor suckers.

What’s the good news?

You CAN start making extra cash with a legitimate at-home job!

Here I will show you 15 REAL jobs that can start making you cash TODAY.

But First, Let’s Consider A Few Things

  • Many of these positions are on a contract basis. This means YOU are responsible for ALL taxes. You get no benefits when you’re a contractor.
  • As a contractor, you will make less per hour. If you earn $20/hr as an employee, you don’t have to pay self-employment taxes on that $20. Throw employee benefits into the mix and an employee’s actual hourly rate can be much higher than a contractor’s $20/hr.
  • Some companies do hire employees. No tax worries and usually some benefits.
  • You won’t get rich from these jobs. So what? Everyone loves extra spending cash!

  • Have great grammar and mastery of the English language.
  • Have a reliable, high-speed Internet connection.

  • Teaching experience/certification preferred but not required by all tutoring companies.
  • Be an expert in your subject.
  • Be eligible to work in the U.S. or Canada.

crafts 2Here’s the deal:

Etsy is a great concept – you can sell your handmade goods to a worldwide audience – but like many great concepts, it’s harder to pull off than you might think.

11. Good With Numbers? Become A Bookkeeper/Accountant At Home.

bookkeeping frog

There was a time when being a bookkeeper meant you had to work in cubicle hell, crunching numbers all day while staring at carpeted chest high walls that define your space.

Not anymore.

(You can imagine why the description of an accountant is usually a stuffy, uptight person.)

Thanks to modern technology, if you’re good at numbers you can crunch away in the comfort of your home.

Many remote accounting companies are looking for people with bookkeeping experience and, depending on the position, are looking for individuals who are a CPA (Certified Public Accountant).

But you don’t HAVE to have experience.

“Wait, what?”

Yup, read #4 below in the “If You Qualify” section for more about that.

Requirements:

  • Some companies require a degree in accounting or finance.
  • Experience as a bookkeeper. (See #4 of the “If you qualify” section below if you have no experience.)
  • Experience with accounting software (QuickBooks).
  • Ability to handle multiple accounts at the same time.
  • Be decisive and work well under pressure.
  • Have strong analytical skills and excellent attention to detail.
  • Possess great verbal and written communication skills.
  • Be independent, a self-starter, and a team player. (I know, sounds cheesy.)
  • Have a computer.
  • Access to a reliable, high-speed Internet connection.

If you qualify, start today by:

  1. If you have prior accounting experience or are a CPA, check out one of the companies listed below for any positions you are interested in.
  2. If you have zero accounting experience, do not fret! You can get the training needed by visiting the links listed under “Resources” below.
  3. Once you have located the position you are interested, follow the application steps outlined in the job description.
  4. If you are a rockstar (and who isn’t?) consider Starting a Bookkeeping Business from Home with No Experience.

It’s true, most of these positions require experience, so if you don’t have any, start out freelancing or find an entry-level position.

  • Have a working knowledge of English so you can clearly and precisely translate from your native language to English.

Hey, we all do it!

We make judgments about EVERYTHING we come across. It’s human nature.

money computer

Can you get paid to do it? You bet your behind you can!

Website developers often get their sites ‘tested’ by real-time participants. It’s pretty easy- you use the website and ‘talk’ about it as you use it. This lets the developer know what you do and don’t like about it.

What’s the nicest thing about this job?

It doesn’t require a freaking degree!!

Turn your web surfing ability into hardcore cash!

Simply try it out and bam- you have some spending money. It’s easy! Dare I say it might even be enjoyable? Just about anyone can do it.

Other than having basic computer equipment, and being of voting age, there are really no requirements.

Sign up for more than one testing company and see if you can make more than the $200/month average.

What’s the going rate?

About $10 per test. Most companies pay via PayPal.

Some companies offer immediate testing of a website or app. In other words, once you are notified of a test that meets your demographics, you test immediately. Other companies set up a time to test via Skype. These types of tests generally run longer, but you get paid more (but testing opportunities come up less often).

Requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Able to vocalize (in English) what your thoughts are about the website/app you are testing.
