Work at Home Opportunities from A to Z …

by in Starting Your Business

One of things people often say when they first find out that you work from home is that there are only so many things you can do from home. They instantly think you're stuffing envelopes or selling candles, they don't realize that there is truly a world of opportunity out there that allows a person to work from home on their own schedule doing something that they enjoy. Let's have a look, from A all the way to Z.

A is for Avon, affiliate marketers, and authors.

B is for Brown Bag Parties, bookkeepers, and bloggers.

C is for Cookie Lee Jewelry, customer service representatives, and copywriters.

D is for Discovery Toys, data entry, and doggie bakeries.

You'll notice that this list covered not only party plans and direct sales opportunities, but independent endeavors that you could go into. This list is 95% done just off the top of my head,… there are certainly hundreds of ideas that you could go with to offer services or market products to create an income for yourself.

Whatever path you decide to follow, I wish you success.

That’s crazy how many direct sales companies there are out there! Personally, Scentsy is my favorite ;) I did a lot of research and thinking before deciding what I wanted to do to be able to work from home. My advice is find something you are passionate about – it will show through in your work and make you that much more successful!
