How to Find a Part-Time Job from Home
Last week I highlighted three passive income business ideas that almost immediately became one of the most popular videos on the channel. I got feedback from a lot of people though that they weren’t necessarily looking for some big business idea but just a way to make some quick money at home.
And I realized that a lot of the jobs videos we’ve done on the channel from the jobs with no degree required and the college jobs video, none of them help someone that maybe has other responsibilities but still needs a part-time work at home job.
So today I’m revealing the seven best
part-time jobs you can get working from home. Compared to a lot of online or
at-home jobs we’ve covered, these don’t involve starting your own company or
website. I’m focusing here on the jobs that are already set up by an organized
company, that require no experience and that you can start within a week.
Understand that none of these jobs are going
to make you rich like those passive income business ideas. What they will do is
give you flexible hours and a solid paycheck so you can focus the rest of your
time on other things.
For each work from home job, I’ll tell you how
to get started, how much you can make and list out some companies that hire for
I’ll also share three secrets to working from
home at the end of the video and believe me, as someone that has worked from
home since 2013, these three tips will save your sanity. They will make you
more productive and make you more money so stick around to see what they are.

Working Part-Time as a Fundraising Consultant
Our first work-from-home job is as a fundraising consultant for schools and other organizations. And there’s actually two job ideas here. One is consulting organizations on how to run a fundraiser, so guiding them through the planning and process.
The other idea would be working for a fundraising company as a sales agent, reaching out to the organizations and getting them to use the company’s fundraising products and campaigns.
That second idea is a sales position so you’ll need that drive but what I like about this on is that it can be a lot of recurring income. You build a relationship with a couple of organizations and you can come back to them every year to sell them into those fundraising products.
With the first idea, you’ll need to have some
experience running fundraising campaigns and know what works. It would probably
help to work as the product agent for a while first to establish those
relationships and the experience before going out on your own for consulting.
Through ABC, you’ll be contacting schools and
other non-profits about running fundraisers and you’ll receive commissions on
the campaigns they order.
ABC says the average commission for sales is
between $100 to $400 and the website Paysa reports an average salary of $35,000
for independent distributors. Now that’s probably for a full-time distributor
so expect to make between sixteen- to twenty-thousand working part-time.
Work from Home as a Travel Planner
Our next job is as an online travel planner,
the 21st century’s answer to the travel agent.
As a travel planner, you’ll work with
individuals and companies to plan their vacations and business trips. A lot of
this means planning complicated trips that involve lots of stops to make sure
the customer is getting the best price on tickets.
You might also work for an online travel
agency, coordinating travel plans and trying to sell vacation packages. You’ll
help people decide on where to go, how to get there and rentals while they’re
on vacation. You might even suggest or book tours and attractions for them as
part of a package.
AirTreks helps companies and people with
complex travel plans including multi-stop international trips. Staff is 100%
remote and besides wages, you’ll be eligible for profit-sharing and an equity
ownership in the company.
Paysa reports the average salary at AirTreks
for a Travel Agent Consultant between $37,000 to $48,000 so expect to make
between eighteen- to twenty-four thousand part-time.
Check out how I make over $7,000 a month blogging and how to get started.
Working from Home as a Fashion Consultant
Our third work-from-home opportunity is as an
online stylist or fashion consultant.
This is a really interesting one to me even
though I don’t think I could do it. As an online stylist, you’ll either work
directly with a customer or work off a profile they complete to pick clothes
for them. You might be suggesting an entire combination for a specific event or
just helping them pick an everyday wardrobe.
This is obviously one where you’ll need some
fashion-sense. Beyond how to tie an awesome bow-tie, I have no idea what that
is but it sounds like fun.
Stitch Fix is a personal style service for men
and women. They hire remote stylists and fashion consultants to hand-select
clothing for customers which are then delivered by mail.
Glassdoor reports hourly wages for remote
workers at Stitch Fix make around $15 an hour but a range of between fourteen
to seventeen dollars.
Part-Time Virtual Jobs from Home
Next on our list of part-time at-home work is
as a virtual bookkeeper.
This one is actually more up my alley as a
numbers nerd and I’ve worked freelance as a bookkeeper before. Working as a
virtual bookkeeper can mean anything from managing a simple budget to acting as
the outsourced chief financial officer to a rising startup.
You won’t necessarily need a degree in
accounting or any certification but you will need to know some of the common
accounting software like Quickbooks. It’ll help to have some accounting or
small business experience.
Fix My Cash Flow hires QuickBooks trained
bookkeepers for outsourced CFO, cloud accounting and general bookkeeping
services for small businesses.
Paysa reports the average salary at Fix My
Cash Flow for a specialist between about $46,000 to $69,000 so expect to make
between twenty-three to thirty-four grand part-time. You can make a lot of
money on this one and I’d recommend finding some of your own clients even if
you start freelancing for a company.
Part-Time Social Media Jobs from Home
Fifth on our list is one I’ve talked about on
the channel before and a great opportunity as a Social Media Manager.
This one has a lot of room for growth and can
easily become a full-time career making six-figures. Any blogger, small
business owner or online influencer is going to need to market through social
media and take it from someone that manages more than eight of his own social
profiles, there’s always going to be a demand for this job.
As a social media manager, you’re working with the customer to put together a marketing plan and social strategy. You’re scheduling social updates on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and any other platform they’re on and you’re engaging with their followers.
You might also be designing graphics that fit on each platform and helping to moderate webinars or other communication.
Being a social media manager is more than just
tweeting out a few times a day so take the time to really understand the job.
It’s the social revolution meets marketing and can be perfect for those growing
up in the digital age.
Modsquad manages customer support, content
moderation on social forums and community management in social media for brands
both big and small. The company hires remotely for community support, social
engagement and moderation and offers some great benefits including vacation and
Glassdoor reports hourly rates for moderators
at ModSquad between eight to ten dollars an hour with project managers making
$39,000 a year. That’s not bad for as easy as the work is but this is one where
I’d definitely recommend getting some clients on your own where you can make
between $20 to $50 an hour.
Working Part-Time as a Virtual Assistant
Our next work-from-home job is a big one, one with huge growth, as a virtual assistant.
This one is really broad to include everything
from answering emails to scheduling and even helping your boss run their
business. So not only can this one be a quick source of income but you might
constantly be learning new tasks like creating presentations and doing market
research. I’ve met VAs that were more like paid business interns than
You’ll need to be familiar with spreadsheets
and word processing software like Excel and Word. You should be highly
organized and have excellent phone and email communication skills for this one.
Fancy Hands hires VAs for all kinds of tasks
including scheduling appointments, making travel plans, data entry and making
Glassdoor reports hourly rates for virtual
assistants at Fancy Hands between seven and fifteen dollars an hour. The
company pays new assistants per task, anywhere from three- to seven-dollars per
task but these can be pretty small tasks so you’ll typically be able to do
three or four tasks in an hour.
Easy Transcription Jobs from Home
Our seventh job you can do part-time from home
is as a transcriptionist.
Being a transcriptionist is probably one of
the easier and faster jobs on the list. You might need some kind of
certification to work as a medical or legal transcriptionist but anyone that
can type can work as a general transcriptionist.
You’ll be listening to audio or video
recordings and typing what you hear. That means you’ll need a good command of
the English language and it helps to type quickly. You don’t have to type
super-fast, it just means you’ll have to listen to your clip a few times to get
Rev.com is the transcription service I hear
most often mentioned among bloggers and the company is constantly hiring.
Indeed reports $380 per week for Caption Editor which is well above the $240 a month Rev says the average captioner makes. The website has a blog post sharing the experience of several captioners and most seem to fall around $7 an hour.
This is another one where you might start working for the established company but consider finding your own clients because you can make a lot more on your own. Considering Rev charges users a dollar a minute for transcription services, you can make several times what they’re paying the captioners if you’re able to find your own clients.
Secrets of a Work from Home Lifestyle
Now I want to share three tips I’ve picked up
in more than six years working from home. I’ve seen a lot of people come into
this lifestyle thinking it’s the best thing ever. Then they realize that it’s
not always what you think and many end up going back to a traditional office
These three tips are not only going to help
you be more productive but they’ll save your sanity and make your
work-from-home experiment a success.
The first tip to work from home success is to treat it like a regular job. I know it’s probably the last thing you want to do but there are some things you want to bring over from your 9-to-5. You need to keep regular hours whether that’s a set number of hours in the morning or afternoon.
Even if your work-from-home job is flexible, working those set hours will help you schedule your time and get everything done. Within this idea, you also need to schedule time to learn how to do your job better. It can be really easy to fall behind with an at-home job so you’ve got to find ways to keep your skills fresh to make sure you’ve always got opportunities.
The next secret to working from home, and this
is probably the most important, is to cut out all distractions. This is the
biggest killer of work-from-home dreams. There are so many distractions from
social media to TV, food and family that you can go the entire day without
really getting anything done.
This is a tough one because you can’t always
depend on your own discipline. You might start the day motivated to work but
after an hour you’re getting up for a quick snack that turns into three hours
of lost time.
Beating distractions means writing out a formal schedule of when you’re going to work. It means having your own office space with a door, not watching TV during work hours and maybe even using an app to block social media access during work time.
The third secret here is to track every expense in your work-from-home business. You might be working as an independent contractor for a lot of these companies which means it’s up to you to buy supplies. Keep your receipts and you can take this money off your income come tax time.
Beyond this, you can also write off the cost of your computer and other office equipment and a portion of your utilities paid for your home office. I’ve seen people save thousands off their taxes by just tracking these expenses so it’s definitely something to watch.
Working from home doesn’t have to mean starting your own business. There are lots of part-time work from home jobs that you can start almost immediately and be making money within a couple of weeks. All will give you the freedom you need to work from home and spend more time with your family.
