Work-at-Home Jobs for Disney LoversBy Holly Reisem Hanna

If you’re a Disney fanatic, you’re going to LOVE today’s work-at-home job leads and at-home business opportunities!

Let’s jump right in.

Disney Work-at-Home Job Leads.

Guest Services Representative

The Disney Store retail chain periodically hires remote, Guest Service Reps in Florida, South Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Nevada, Illinois, and Mississippi. In this role, you’ll provide customer service assistance to DisneyStore guests.

Remote Communications and Social Media Rep

In this role, you’ll be working in collaboration with Disney’s recruitment team to share what it’s like to work at Disney by showcasing their culture, work environment, and career opportunities on their social media channels and blogs. Must have a Bachelor’s degree in Communications, Public Relations, Journalism, or English and at least three years of experience.

Honestly, finding a work-at-home job on Disney’s job board is a little tricky. When you type in keywords: work from home or remote, all too often, it pulls up listings that are irrelevant. A better place to search is FlexJobs. Not only do they have a whole Disney category, but they’re also clearly marked as part-time, freelance, temporary, seasonal, or telecommuting — which makes your search so much easier! (more…)

Can You Really Make Money From Home by Blogging?

Can You Really Make Money From Home by Blogging?By Holly Reisem Hanna

My first experience with a blog was back in 2005. A friend of mine told me that I needed to check out this celebrity gossip blog called, Pink is the New Blog. After reading a few posts, I was hooked. Not only did I enjoy the daily gossip, but I loved the casual and personal nature of his writing. Reading this blog became my morning ritual and it soon got me thinking:

  • Is this his full-time job?
  • How is he making money from his blog?
  • How did land big time TV interviews?

Fast forward to 2007.

After the birth of my daughter, I quit my full-time job as an RN Clinical Research Coordinator and became a full-time stay at home mom. But after nine months of play-dates, mommy and me classes, and a dwindling bank account, I felt the urge to make some money and exercise my brain. I looked online for different work at home jobs, but the majority of my time was spent weeding through scams and sifting through websites to find all of the information that I was looking for. It was at this time that I decided to create my own a monetized blog.

Fast forward to 2009.

After 15 months of doing research, creating content, and having a designer create a custom theme for me — I was finally able to launch in March of 2009. It took me almost three months to get my first advertiser and from there it has continued to grow, and is now my full-time career. While I’m unable to disclose how much I earn, I can tell you how I’m making money blogging and that yes indeed, you can make REAL money blogging! (more…)

Flexible Part-Time Jobs for College Students

Flexible Part-Time Jobs for College StudentsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

When I went off to college, my parents agreed to cover my tuition. But if I wanted to live out on my own, I had to cover my rent, food, books, and bills. My parents, of course, gave me the option to live at home rent-free, but what college student wants to live at home when they can be out of their own?!

Needless to say, working was not an option for me. Even if I had decided to stay-at-home with my parents, I was still responsible for gas, car insurance, and college text books – which are expensive!

Luckily, I fell into waiting tables (I initially applied for a hostessing position, but was hired on as a waitress) which was great! I made good money, and my schedule was flexible. While I had my scheduled shifts, if I need to make more money, I could pick up a shift, and if I needed more time to study, I could try and give my shift away. I ended up waiting tables for nine years while I got my two degrees.

If you’re a college student and you’re looking for a flexible, part-time gig, there are a lot of options available to you, and you don’t have to wait tables, although it is a good option.

Here are ten ways you can make money and still have time for your classes and studying. (more…)

8 Work-at-Home Jobs for Fast and Accurate Typists

8 Work-at-Home Jobs for Fast and Accurate TypistsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

There is one job that people always ask about, and that’s data entry. The reason I don’t cover data entry gigs on the website is most straight data entry jobs only pay pennies per document, which is by no means a fair wage. And often these companies have substantial account threshold requirements, so you won’t get paid until you reach that amount (which could take months).

In fact, Ashlee over at Work at Home Happiness tried one of these straight data entry gigs and had this to say, “I felt like I had keyed and keyed and keyed some more but only managed to bank $8.72. Even today when I login, I can still see the $8.72 in my account. I never was paid because I didn’t meet the $30.00 threshold.”

However, if you’re a fast typist and you’re looking for data entry type gigs, there are other options available that you may not have considered, and best of all they pay well.

Here are eight work-at-home careers to consider if you’re a fast and accurate typist.

Online Chat Agents.

Along with the Internet and online shopping, came a new breed of customer service, and that’s the live chat agent. Live chat agents answer customer’s questions and queries on the spot via online text chat platforms. Some chat positions require background knowledge of a particular area (such as tech support), but many others are more general in nature and don’t require any specialized skills (except for quick and accurate typing).  (more…)

A HUGE List of Free Resources to Help Run Your Home-Based Business

A HUGE List of Free Resources to Help Run Your Home-Based BusinessBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Leaving the security of a steady paying job to launch a new business can be a scary endeavor. Even if you’ve planned and saved six months worth of living expenses, often it takes months to start generating income from your business.

And guess what?

Even if you don’t have money coming in, your business still incurs expenses to run smoothly. But don’t despair, there are tons of free tools, resources, and printables, so you don’t have break the bank.

Here’s a huge list of free business resources so you can focus on making money instead of spending it.

Your Website. 

Since you won’t have a brick-and-mortar location the heart of your home-based business is your website. Having a website allows people to window shop your services and products, it helps them find you via the web, and it conveys valuable information. Personally, I think it’s in your best interest to own your website (purchase your domain name and hosting), but if you can’t afford a website right off the bat, I suggest using a free option until you can afford to switch to a more robust platform.

A few things to note about free platforms. Usually you’re limited to small number of web pages, you’ll have limited bandwidth and storage, and often you’ll have a sub-domain. If you can spare $3.95 a month, I highly recommend setting up your own website with WordPress. Not only is it affordable, it’s extremely easy to setup and use and it will give you a professional looking website. (more…)
