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…)
