I mean, who doesn’t want to make money from home?
Imagine not having to go an office everyday. Or better, being able to work from anywhere in the world.
A coffee shop in Central America sure beats your smelly, sweaty office one hour away from home.
We all know we would much rather do that!
But just how do people go about this? How the hell do they make enough money from their laptops to live a good, normal life?
1. Make Money As A Proofreader
Proofreading? Full time online job?
Yeap, that’s correct!
There are plenty of people out there at the moment who are working as full time proofreaders. You don’t even need a college degree to become successful in this very popular online niche.
So just how does one actually get started with this?
I did a bit research, and found quite a few success stories about people going from never having been a proofreader, to earning a few thousand dollars within two or three months.
The most popular way people are getting into proofreading is on a website called Proofread Anywhere.
There have a free introduction course for you to get started, and to see if it’s something which might interest you.
Give it a try. Who knows, you might just become the next professional proofreader!
2. Start An Amazon FBA Business
Starting an online store with your own brand and range of products might seem like a great idea.
Who wouldn’t want to have their own store, with their own brandname attached to it.
The problem with having your own private online store is that you have to manage all that inventory by yourself.
You are responsible for finding a supplier, ordering the goods, storing them in a warehouse, and shipping them out to customers.
This is where Amazon FBA (Fullfillment By Amazon) is great.
With Amazon FBA, you do not need to house any products. They get sent directly from the supplier to the customer.
Amazon stores your products for you and even picks, packs and ships them out to customers.
So what’s the tricky bits, then?
Finding a product which would sell well. Finding a good, reliable supplier, and learning how to appear high up on Amazon searches!
Check out this article about how a person is making $2000 a month selling private label goods on Amazon.
They basically find high selling products on Amazon, find a supplier to make those products, then create their own brand and marketing for it. And try beat their competition!
Another great resource for selling on Amazon is Sam Priestley’s in depth post about starting an Amazon FBA business. He has been selling on Amazon for years, and is pretty successful!
3. Become A Virtual Assistant
Don’t worry, many ask that question.
With so many successes happening everyday online, people are requiring help!
What does a virtual assistant even do?
From having someone write a bit of content for your website, to posting on social media, organising emails, doing research etc etc.
This is where virtual assistants come in. You are basically assisting someone with their online tasks in running their business.
And the beauty fo it all? You never even have to meet in person!
Then check out The VA Handbook. It’s a website dedicated to helping you become a virtual assistant.
4. Freelance Writing
Fancy yourself a rather good writer?
Don’t feel like leaving your home, but still want to work?
Then maybe become a freelance writer!
There are a ton of people who are making a living by doing this. You can find potential clients in a number of ways. Directly contacting website / blog owners or joining writing websites seems the best way possible.

6. Start Your Very Own Blog
Do you know that a blog can actually be a full on business?
Most people assume blogs are just personal pieces of content where people write about their life experiences and thoughts.
How wrong they are!
Blogs can become EXTREMELY profitable, and you really have no limit as to what to blog about.
Just know that it takes a lot of hard work, dedication and motivation. But it’s so worth it!
