Why work at home?
- I need the flexibility. I want to work at my own pace and time preferably in the morning shift.
- I want to be able to spend more time with the kids.
- I have been through a huge amount of stress for the past years that I thought it's time for me to be a little laid back.
First thing that came into my mind - ODESK.
Odesk is a community. I call it a community because it is where people go online to find work or to look for employees. Kind of like virtual community. Your or your client could be located anywhere in the world yet you provide your services and get paid for the amount of work that you do.
It's as simple as going to their website and creating your profile. It's going to be somewhat like your resume at Odesk. It is what the employers will see when they view it.
Now you're ready to apply. There are a lot and I mean A LOT of open jobs at Odesk. You wouldn't know where to start. The good thing about it is that all these jobs are categorized so you can filter the ones that you feel you are comfortable getting. After "job hunting" for almost a month, I manage to land a few projects and one great employer (also a WAHM) that pays me by the hour. I'm not earning that much (yet) but I'm getting there.
Odesk is one great opportunity for moms who have a lot of free time and would like to work at home. Anyone who wants to earn additional income could definitely go to Odesk. As for me, I'm still learning the ropes.
