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…)

Solid Advice for Buying an Established Online Business

Solid Advice for Buying an Established Online BusinessTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey?

My entrepreneurial journey began the first time when I was 26 and was laid off from my job. I started a sales consulting firm and quickly fell in love with being self-employed. Back then I didn’t have the responsibilities of kids, a husband and a dog as I do now, so it was a good time to test the waters of self-employment.

I knew I’d come back to it again someday.

Fast forward almost 20 years, and I was a national sales manager in the consumer products world, doing the corporate grind. And when you have two kids under the age of 4 and you travel several times a month, it is a grind. Ever since they were born, I would look on business-for-sale websites like buybizsell.com and websiteproperties.com for web-based companies that I could purchase that would offer me income along with a better work/life balance.

Where did you hear about Business Among Moms and its sale?

I was subscribed to several sites that listed web-based businesses for sale, and I received the profile for Business Among Moms from Quiet Light Brokerage.

How are you making the platform your own?

When I purchased the company, it was a blog that primarily offered mom-owned businesses the opportunity to advertise on our website, Facebook page, and email list. After a year, I decided to change the business model and focus more on creating in-person communities for mom entrepreneurs. We now have 20 chapters across the country that host monthly networking events and an annual conference in the Seattle, Washington area.

Why Being a Work-at-Home Mom is the Best of Both Worlds

Why Being a Work-at-Home Mom is the Best of Both WorldsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

From a very young age, I knew I wanted to be a mom. In fact, every year in my School Days Keepsake Album, it would ask the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And while I had no clue what I wanted to do professionally, I did know that I wanted to be a mom.

As I got older and thought more about becoming a parent, I knew that I wanted to be my child’s primary caregiver. Maybe it was because my mom had stayed at home with my siblings and me. Or maybe it was the fact that I didn’t like working as a nurse. Whatever the case when I got pregnant, I started planning for my transition out of the workforce.

During my last nine months working as a nurse, I saved as much money as I could so that we wouldn’t feel the financial loss. But my savings dwindled much quicker than I had anticipated. Having been a parent for nine months, I knew there was no way I could put my daughter in daycare; it would have broken my heart. So I started looking for work-at-home jobs.

After searching for a few months, I secured a part-time, freelance, marketing position which gave me a steady paycheck and the idea for this website. I worked approximately 10 to 15 hours a week while my daughter napped; it was perfect. I had money coming in, and I was able to witness all of my little girl’s special milestones. (more…)

How This Blogger Organically Grew Her Facebook Page to 100K in Five Short Months

How This Blogger Organically Grew Her Facebook Page to 100K in Five Short MonthsTell us a little bit about yourself and your blogging journey.

Way back in October 2013, a good friend of mine started a little blog on Blogger. I knew nothing at all about blogging, but I was a SAHM at the time and thought “That looks fun! I should make a blog too!” Little did I know how much I would absolutely fall in love with it in such a short amount of time.

Unfortunately, that blog wasn’t really ever going to go anywhere, since I had no idea what I was doing when I first started it. So the following year, in August 2014, I completely shut it down, rebranded and relaunched as Equipping Godly Women and have been busy growing EGW ever since!

Now, I’m a wife, a mother to three little ones (ranging from six to six months), and a full-time blogger. I love it! It’s truly the perfect job for this point in my life.

Do you have any special training?

No, not really. I do have a degree in elementary education, which I’m sure helps, and I started freelance writing right around the time I started blogging, but I don’t have any special training in business or marketing or social media or anything like that. I’ve just learned everything along the way.

How are you monetizing your blog?

Right now, I’m using a combination of ads, affiliate links, sponsored posts and my own products. I do offer consulting and freelance writing services as well, but on a very limited basis. (more…)

How to Make Money and Empower Women With Handbags

How to Make Money and Empower Women With HandbagsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

This past week I had the pleasure of checking out the ClaudiaG home business opportunity. The ClaudiaG Collection consists of leather handbags, chic jewelry and accessories – so if you love fashion you’ll want to check this out.

In fact, I took the Luminous Tote on my Cancun trip and I received so many compliments on it. It’s a great size for a beach bag or every day use. You could even use it as a laptop bag – it’s so versatile.

So tell you a little bit more about this home business opportunity we have ClaudiaG’s founder, Claudia Gutierrez.

Hi, I’m Claudia. I’m originally from Colombia and have lived in Houston, Texas, for over 15 years. Upon completing my studies in Business Administration at St. Thomas University, I got my MBA in 2004 and accepted a position with JP Morgan Chase, starting a successful career in banking.

I was always curious about activities that included design and craftsmanship. Growing up in a region of the Colombian Caribbean infused with the natural beauty of the sea and its tropical climate and inspired by the creative process of the artisans and the richness of the colors and materials, I naturally evolved to handbag and accessory design.

I began selling to women around me, and based on their fantastic reaction I soon realized I could offer the same opportunity to others as a way of gaining financial independence without sacrificing the responsibilities and joys of family life and community involvement. (more…)
