Balancing Work and Life When Work is Your Life

Balancing Work and Life When Work is Your LifeBy Deborah Sweeney

Every working professional has been striving to find the perfect balance between work and life since the beginning of time. We need to work to sustain our lifestyles, and we need to indulge in our personal lives to have enough energy for work- it’s a tricky balance to maintain. But what about those of us that actually work from our own homes? It’s harder to draw a line between professional and personal when your “office” is mere feet from the play room that’s just begging to be picked up. If you find yourself constantly asking, “Where do I draw the line?”

Try out these four tips to separate your personal and professional lives, while maintaining a successful at-home business:

Schedule down time.

If you’re like me, you could go, go, go from sunrise to sundown without so much as taking five minutes to read the paper or enjoy a meal sitting down (so seems to be the case with most entrepreneurs). Though, I have found that if I keep up this schedule, within two weeks or so I’ll feel as if I’ve hit a brick wall. I become exhausted and scattered with little warning. (more…)

Tips To Becoming A Successful Freelance Writer

Tips To Becoming A Successful Freelance WriterBy Gary Dek

So you like to write, and you’ve been hearing so much about people quitting their day jobs and making a living off of freelancing. Why can’t you be one as well? You already know you can write and that you love doing it, so what’s stopping you?

Truth to be told, there’s nothing to stop you from taking the plunge. You can even make the transition slowly – first doing it on the side before ditching your day job. However, what you need to hedge against is that when you do decide to go the freelance writing route, you are equipped to become a successful freelance writer.

Just like any career, there are certain considerations and industry practices that you need to know. Here are some of the best tips to becoming a freelance writer.

Determine if the freelance writing life is right for you.

Freelance writers are often perceived as “living the life”. They answer to no one but themselves, control their time, and work whenever they want to.

To a certain degree, this is accurate but just because you’re a freelancer doesn’t mean you don’t need to be disciplined, organized, and follow a routine. The best freelance writers have very strong self-control. They treat the time between 9 and 5 as their work hours and ignore the plethora of distraction present at home. (more…)

11 Sites That Will Pay You to Test Out Websites

11 Sites That Will Pay You to Test Out WebsitesBy Holly Reisem Hanna

As a blogger and online publisher it’s important for me to know that my my website is user-friendly. Because if I’m losing visitors due to lousy navigation, lack of clarity, poor design or content — then I’m losing money! This is why companies will pay good money for objective third-party reviews of their website.

To do this job from home you will need to be internet savvy and speak fluent English. You will also need some basic equipment like a computer with a microphone, broadband internet connection, as well as an updated web browser. Most web tests take between 5 to 25 minutes to complete and pay an average of $10 per test.

If you’d like to work from home testing websites, here are 11 sites to check out.

Analysia

Get paid to test out websites. Simply fill out the user registration form and wait to be contacted by email for tasks. Each task will require you to read the instructions, complete the set task on the website, and record your session. Tests usually take between 10 – 15 minutes and pay $10 per test. Payments are made via PayPal.

Enroll

Make money by testing out websites. To enroll in the program submit your email address, password, and pick your preferred method of testing (desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone). Once you’re fully registered, you’ll receive emails when assignments are ready for you. (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 off of his blog? And 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 9 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 3 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 make due to non-disclosure agreements with clients, I can tell you how I’m making money blogging and that yes, you can make REAL money blogging. (more…)
