8 Ways You Can Make Money When You Travel

8 Ways You Can Make Money When You TravelBy Anum Yoon

No matter how frugal you are while traveling, money also seems to go quicker than you thought it would. If there were a downside to traveling, it’d be the cost of going for as long as you want.

That’s why doing some work on your travels can extend your trip for quite a while. You won’t become rich by doing any of these jobs, but you will make enough to get by if you’re dedicated. Best of all, most of these following jobs aren’t particularly time intensive. For the most part, you can work put in a couple hours when you have some down time and enjoy your time on the road.

1. Transcription

Transcribing audio won’t exactly get the adrenaline pumping, but it’s one of the perfect gigs to do while traveling. There aren’t specific skills that are required, you can work on your own time and the work can be steady. There’s a bit of a learning curve, but once you get good at it then it becomes easier to earn money. There are a number of online companies offering up projects. Some of the better-regarded companies include Rev and Scribie.

To find out more about this career, check out this interview with experienced transcriber, Lisa Mills.

2. Freelance Writing or Design

If you know a thing or two about writing or design, check online for small projects that can earn you a little money. (more…)

Where to Find Christian Work at Home Jobs

Where to Find Christian Work at Home JobsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Every week I receive tons of emails from women who are looking for legitimate jobs they can do from home. When I ask them about their passions, skills, and prior experience, a large percentage of these women mention their Christian faith. Because faith and religion play such an important role in the lives of so many, it only seems fitting to explore the companies and opportunities for faith-based jobs.

So if you’re looking to incorporate your faith into your career search — here are 5 places to get you started.

Christian Work at Home Companies: 

My initial goal when I was writing this post was to find Christian companies that hire remote workers on a regular basis. But in my intensive research, I was only able to find a few companies.

Concordia is a non-profit institution that was established by the Lutheran Church. Currently they hire adjunct faculty to teach college courses online.

eaHelp is a legit work at home company that hires Executive Virtual Assistants and Social Media Assistants. Their mission is to “Glorify God by sourcing people and services that ignite a leader’s possibilities and results.” (more…)

Why You Should Dress Up – Even When You Work From Home

Why You Should Dress Up - Even When You Work From HomeBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Back in the day when I worked in an office setting, I had to wear business casual outfits. Unfortunately, this meant a lot of tailored pants, button down shirts, blazers, and heels. And while I felt like I looked somewhat fashionable, it wasn’t always comfortable or what I preferred to wear. Did I mention, that I spent a TON of money on dry cleaning and clothing … and the clothes I bought for work, I didn’t even want to wear on the weekends.

Wearing what you want, when you want, it’s just one of the many perks of working from home. But just because you can wear pjs or yoga pants everyday — doesn’t mean you should. In fact, it’s been documented over and over again, the better you look, the better you feel, the better you perform.

Your appearance plays a huge role in your productivity and how much you earn — yes, you read that right. In fact, in Lois P. Frankel’s book, Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers, she says, “About 55% of your credibility comes from how you look.” Not only that, dressing up improves your mood, it makes a good first impression, and it gives you a confidence boost.

So what should you wear when you work from home?

Something I like to call, functional fashion. Clothes are are versatile, comfortable, and you LOVE to wear them. One brand that has perfected this style is cabi. Cabi pieces can be easily dressed up for a client meeting or conference, or toned down for a busy day at your home office. (more…)

5 Benefits Industry Conferences Offer Work at Home Business Owners

5 Benefits Industry Conferences  Offer Work at Home Business OwnersBy Christy Schutz

My husband and I did the unfathomable and took a 2,600 mile road trip from Tampa to Boston and back for a prominent industry conference for our business. During this odyssey, which included a nice stop off to see the sights in Savannah, car troubles that left us stranded in rural NC, and trekking back home through Hurricane Joaquin, I had a lot of time to ask myself, “What in the world was I thinking?”

Now, I know a big portion of that question is due to the fact that we chose to drive to the show. That much time in the car with the crazy problems we encountered is enough to drive almost anyone bonkers. But it also was a question about the show itself. As work-at-home business owners, are trade shows and conferences really beneficial to our business? In our case, I believe the answer is definitely yes.

Today’s post is dedicated to the top 5 reasons why industry conferences are important to work-at-home business owners.

1. Opportunity to Make Face-to-Face Connections

Technology today definitely enables the work at home professional to establish a personal connection. Tools like Skype, Google Hangouts, or Facetime helps us to visually connect and read things like facial expressions or body language. But, depending on the type of business you’re managing, your customers, and/or even the location of your home office, creating opportunities for real life interactions can be a challenge. Trade shows and conferences can be the one time a year when you physically see your customers, vendors, and partners.  (more…)

How to Run a Home Staging Business – Interview with Debra Gould

How to Run a Home Staging Business - Interview with Debra GouldTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

I am an internationally recognized home staging expert, president of the Voice of Possibility Group, and the creator of the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program. An entrepreneur since 1989 and author of several guides, I have staged millions of dollars worth of real estate through my company, Six Elements.

After appearing on HGTV and in major newspapers and decorating magazines across the US and Canada, I started getting emails from hundreds of women who had taken home staging courses and hadn’t figured out how to make a living.

That’s when I realized, no one else was teaching the business of home staging and the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program was born in 2005. I’m proud that I’ve now trained over 10,000 creative women in 23 countries on how to earn a living from their own talents. I give them a comprehensive business model and template to follow, so they can save time and start earning money from home staging and redesign faster and with less effort.

I have lived in 4 different cities, raised a child on my own, and supported myself from a home office during all that time. My latest hobby is Stand Up Comedy and I’ve performed for crowds as large as 350 people. (more…)
