Huge List of Work at Home Jobs That Offer Employee Benefits

Huge List of Work at Home Jobs That Offer Employee Benefits By Holly Reisem Hanna

Working from home has a TON of perks, but there is a downside. First, the majority of work at home jobs available are for independent contractors and freelancers, which means you’re responsible for your own taxes. Second, most gigs don’t offer employee benefits, so no health insurance, no paid vacation, no sick leave, and no matching 401(k) retirement plan. All these things must be taken into consideration when you decide to work from home.

Luckily, more and more companies are offering telecommuting positions with employee benefits. From my research the majority of remote jobs that do offer benefits are for full-time workers, which is generally the case when you work outside the home too. So if you need a telecommuting job with benefits here are some great companies to check out.

Please note, while benefits were researched on the corporate websites and/or GlassDoor.com and are believed to be correct, you need to check with the individual companies and HR departments for complete up-to-date information. Companies are listed in alphabetical order with the positions they hire for and the benefits they offer.

How to Be a Successful Mom Entrepreneur

How to Be a Successful Mom EntrepreneurBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Have you ever wondered why some people succeed in their business, while others continually struggle? I’ll let you in on a little secret. It has nothing to do with a college degree, how high your IQ score is, or even how much money you have to invest in your business. In fact, the answer is quite simple, but all too often overlooked and ignored.

The key to success is … professional support.

Now, I know what you’re thinking … “I can’t afford to hire someone … and I don’t know of anyone who can mentor me.” Well, guess what? Neither of those are roadblocks to your success, because I’m going to tell you how you can get a mentor for FREE. But before I do that, let me tell you why having a mentor is so important to your success as a mom entrepreneur.

While you may have supportive friends and family in your life, if they’re not entrepreneurs themselves there is a huge gap in terms of communication, mindset, and moneymaking views. To put it plainly, sometimes they just don’t get it. That’s why having a mentor, who has been there and done that, can be such a great asset to your business. Not only does a mentor share invaluable business expertise, but they can also provide accountability, support, and encouragement.

In fact, a couple of this year’s American Small Business Championship Winner’s attribute mentors to their small business success. (more…)

Work From Home as a Local Coordinator for Exchange Students

Work From Home as a Local Coordinator for Exchange StudentsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

I’m always on the lookout for new work at home jobs and opportunities. One that I recently stumbled across is for Local Coordinators (LC) for student exchange programs.

Want to know more?

Here’s the scoop on what it is and where to apply.

What is a Local Coordinator (LC)?

Local Coordinators are independent contractors who go out into the community visiting schools, churches, and various youth programs in search of families who are interested in hosting foreign exchange students. Besides finding safe hosting families for students, you also act as a point of contact and mentor to the students while there are here in the U.S.

What Skills and Qualifications Do I Need?

Most organizations require that you be at least 25 years of age and you must have a clean criminal background check, since you’ll be working with teens. The ideal candidate for this work at home opportunity would be someone who enjoys traveling and learning about new cultures, is outgoing, friendly, and likes to work with teenagers. All of the companies that I looked at had various forms of training for their LCs, as well as ongoing support. (more…)

What Equipment Do You Need to Work From Home?

What Equipment Do You Need to Work From Home?By Holly Reisem Hanna

Dear Work at Home Woman,

What type of computer e.g. speed and equipment do I need for telecommuting or virtual English teaching?

Thanks, Robert

Hi Robert,

For most telecommuting jobs you’re going to need a well functioning computer and a high speed internet connection. While this sounds straightforward, there’s actually a lot of little details that will need to be taken into consideration before you can apply or accept the position.

Let’s take a closer look.

Computer

With any telecommuting position you’ll want to check out the specific equipment requirements that they have. Usually this information can be found in the job posting itself.

While most companies allow you to work on a PC or a Mac, there are a few, mainly customer service and transcription jobs, that will require you to have a Windows operating system. (more…)

10 Ways to Turn Your Trash into Cash

10 Ways to Turn Your Trash into CashBy Holly Reisem Hanna

As a youngster, I was extremely money motivated. In fact, my friend and I would come up with new money making schemes all the time. Besides making and selling crafts, perfume, and lemonade, we would also dig through the nearby office park’s dumpers in search of soda cans. Most of the time we would collect the cans and trade in them for money, so we could buy candy from the store. But one summer we collected thousands of soda can tabs and traded them in for a one night stay at a hotel (don’t worry, my friend’s mom chaperoned us on our stay).

It’s really crazy how many ways you can make money, if you try.

If you’re looking to turn your garbage into cash — here are 10 ways to get started.

1. Aluminum Cans

This is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about making money from your trash. In fact, “According to the Aluminum Association, Americans earn nearly $1 billion a year from recycling aluminum cans”. The national average is $0.50 per pound and it takes about 34 cans to equal a pound. While you’re not going to get rich from recycling your aluminum cans, it is an easy way to add some cash to your wallet while cleaning up your community.

Check out the Alcoa site to find a recycling center near you. (more…)
