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…)

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 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…)

Ditch the Perfectionist Syndrome: How to Do More While Working at Home

Ditch the Perfectionist Syndrome: How to Do More While Working at HomeBy Jeanne San

Working at home is hard enough as it is. When your work and home life is virtually inseparable, it’s easy to get bogged down by various little details on both fronts. Although the oft-quoted saying states that the “God is in the details,” it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to perfect all aspects of a job. To keep your sanity intact, you have to know where to draw the line between striving for the best and excessively trying to get everything right.

If you’ve ever found yourself dedicating undue time and energy to finish just one task, below are some valuable tips to keep yourself from falling into a vicious cycle of unrelenting perfectionism.

Assess Yourself if You Have This Problem.

The first thing you have to learn is whether you have a tendency to be perfectionistic. Being aware of your work habits puts you in a good position to improve it. So how do you know if you have a perfectionistic streak? First, if you leave no room for mistakes at all and you employ an all-or-nothing approach. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having high standards, but if it’s at the expense of your enjoyment, work, or health, then you can probably consider yourself as a perfectionist.

Shift Your Perspective.

It’s good to have an ideal, but not all ideals can be realistically accomplished. Whatever your ideal is, it should only serve as a guide, not an absolute thing you have to attain. To counteract this, try to have more helpful thoughts than self-defeating ones. (more…)
