Dreaming of leaving your 9-5 and making money from home? Or maybe you want to start building an emergency fund and could take on a side hustle or two. In either case, in this post, we’ll be covering different work-from-home opportunities and how you can get a good start in each.
Last year, I took a leap of faith and decided to work from home as a virtual assistant. I devoured the course 30 Days Or Less To Virtual Assistant Success and was able to make my investment back within a couple hours of client work. It felt so awesome! And it was amazing to see it was possible to make good money working from home – In sweats, at that!
So if you want to join the work-from-home team, do it! Even if you just start your business as a side gig, I really can’t recommend it enough.
If you love the sound of freedom and uncapped income potential, then I know you’ll love starting an online business.

Start An Etsy Shop – Perfect For Creative Moms!
If you’ve always had a love for arts & crafts, this is such a fun option to move towards. You can sell digital products like meal plans or custom crafted earrings. Pretty much anything goes, so long as it’s homemade.
A huge upside to starting a shop on Etsy is the immediate trust factor and exposure you’ll receive just by using their platform. Just like Google, Etsy uses SEO and keywords users can include to help them find the perfect products, so you can improve the chances of your products being seen and purchased by optimizing your shop and product’s titles and descriptions.
Another great thing about Etsy is that when you create and design digital products, you are essentially making passive income since the shipping and handling of your item(s) are automated. Kelsey from Papers + Oats is an AMAZING example of starting and maintaining a successful Etsy shop and is a great role model if you plan on selling digital products.
If you’d like to start your Etsy shop today, you can get access to Maria Oliveira’s course Earn $1,000/Month on Etsy for just $47 (normally $197), when you get a copy of the Ultimate Work From Home Bundle.
The Etsy Seller’s Simple Guide to Taxes: A Time and Money Saving Guide for Makers and Crafters by Sarah Korhnak is another handy ebook that you’ll get access to when you purchase the bundle. It’s straightforward and a great tax guide all crafters should have on hand.
When you get the bundle, you’ll also get access to 30 ebooks, 1 audiobook, 14 ecourses, 5 printable packs and 8 bonuses worth over $2,336!

There are lots of different freelance options you can take to match up with your inborn interests and talents, so try to choose one(s) that fall in with them. It’s never a good thing to replace a soul-sucking job with another soul-sucking job, so take a minute to pick a freelance path you’re actually passionate about and could picture yourself doing day-to-day.
In essence, each of these paths will require some upfront marketing and a small investment in education to get started. Things like cold pitching and introducing yourself to others online will become like second nature. Believe me, the more pitches you send and get yourself out there, the less intimidating it becomes. So if you’re an introvert like me, know that starting a freelance business doesn’t always have to be scary or draining!
Pricing Your Services
Another mega important step in becoming a freelancer is pricing your services properly. Undervaluing yourself at first is normal, but as time goes on it can really put a damper on enjoying your work. So setting up the right pricing system from the get go can be very beneficial.
The Ultimate Work From Home Bundle has an amazing course to help you price your services.
