If you enjoy the buzz of the office, but it takes too long to commute, or you have to look after family members or kids, you might be sitting on the fence whether or not you should start working from home and setting up your own business.
You might have heard stories about people who are bored with sitting in front of the computer all day and not having anyone to talk to. The good news is that there are plenty of jobs that will allow you to communicate with others and get the buzz out of your work. Find a few ideas below.
Teaching and Tutoring
In case you have a teaching background but had enough of school politics and administration, you can start your own business from home. Whether you are going to teach your students in your library or office in person or via video conferencing software, you will enjoy the interaction with people and learn a lot about their preferences, culture, challenges, and strengths.
You can develop deeper student-teacher relationships through one-on-one tuition. You can even find online English tutor jobs that pay well and allow you the flexibility you need.
Some companies are too small to have a full-time customer service agent sitting in the office dealing with queries and complaints. You can offer your services to them and become a virtual assistant.
Choose the types of jobs you enjoy performing; maintaining the online chat, answering emails, or simply sending out quotes and following up customer contact. Whatever your preference is, there will be a company that will pay you for your time and expertise.
In case you are really extroverted and crave feedback and two-way interaction, you can even become a vlogger. Whether you are good at designing jewelry or giving people relationship advice, you will be able to gain followers and market yourself, as well as other companies’ products to get paid a commission.
Qualified therapist and counselors are able to take advantage of the internet communication tools available for them.
Some people prefer talking to someone face-to-face and get personalized advice, but don’t want to leave the house. Others might be too busy with work to commute to your office and meet with you in person. Offer this unique service and you will see that people will be more likely to trust you with their problems than simply offering email advice.
In case you are a trained dietitian, you can set up your own company offering personal advice for people who need help losing weight or staying fit and healthy. You can change your life and others’, if you become an expert in treating different conditions, such as bulimia or diabetes.
You have more opportunities to build a fulfilling and rewarding career from home that will stimulate you and make you feel connected with others. Just because you work from home, you don’t have to be secluded. Consider one of these career options and live a fuller life while following your dreams.
