How to Get a Job Where You Make Your Own Schedule
Working from Home
Start a small business.If you have an idea for a business endeavour and are willing to work hard to achieve your vision, start a small business (either at home or elsewhere) where you can make your own hours. Make a business plan, save money or get a loan for startup costs (e.g. production materials and equipment, employees if necessary), plan a budget, and file paperwork to register your business. Visit domain sites like GoDaddy.com to start a website for your business, and buy advertising (e.g. in local newspapers).
Try freelance writing.If your grammar and spelling skills are strong, freelance writing is a great way to earn money from home while making your own hours. Opportunities are available writing, editing, and blogging for a range of companies, most transactions occurring completely online and on a contract basis. To see postings of available positions visit the Freelance Writing Jobs website at .
Do freelance data entry.Remote data entry positions are available online if you have good typing skills (35-40 words per minute, at least), are software savvy, and have a well-running computer. This can be seasonal employment or a year-round commitment, but flexible hours are always possible.To find online data entry work, visit websites like:
- Upwork.com, a website that connects companies and freelance data entry specialists
- Fiverr.com, a website for entrepreneurs to connect with a variety of freelance specialists
Be a direct sales consultant.Direct sales involve the selling of products outside of retail stores, for a paid commission on each product sold (usually 20-35%). Sales are typically made to friends, family, colleagues, or other acquaintances but can also branch into online sales, using networking to build a customer base.To find a sales project that’s right for you, visit the Direct Selling News website for a list of the top 100 direct sales companies today.
- As a direct sales consultant, you can also host get togethers at your home to present and sell products (e.g. a makeup party for Avon).
Sell crafts online.A fun way to earn money from home on your own schedule is to make crafts to sell online. Sign up as a seller at Etsy.com, the largest and most well-known online craft forum, or visit smaller sites like madeitmyself.com. To stand out amongst a sea of craft vendors, go for unique ideas like:
Working Outside of the Home
Tutor students.If you have a strong educational background and an aptitude for instructing others, tutoring might be an ideal job for you. Advertise in classified ads, local businesses or online (e.g. in Facebook groups), or apply to work for a tutoring website like Tutor.com. If you opt to work on your own, you can make your own hours and set your own rates.
- Tutoring can be a work at home position if you choose to operate from your home, or work via webcam conferencing.
Be a focus group participant.For flexible work, find opportunities to participate in focus groups. Companies will pay anywhere from 25$ (U.S.) and up for your feedback and participation in studies, which vary in length and focus. To browse opportunities in the U.S., visit www.findfocusgroups.com.
Flip houses.If you have extra cash, an excellent credit score, and a decent knowledge of the real estate market, consider flipping houses as a way to make money on your own schedule. Look for homes in good areas (e.g. near good schools), in good condition (i.e. not requiring gutting and rebuilding), and with good kitchens and bathrooms, which are big selling points for potential buyers. Make sure the price you pay is below the value of the house on the market so that you can turn a profit.
- Choose places not too far from you, given that you will have to work on the house frequently to renovate and re-sell quickly.
Become a house painter.If you are skilled at house painting, consider doing it as a job. Invest in the necessary equipment (e.g. paint brushes and rollers, a ladder, tape, trays, plastic sheeting) and employees, if necessary. Advertise in local newspapers, hardware stores, and other businesses in your area. Ask satisfied customers to recommend you to friends, or create a website or facebook page where they can leave positive reviews.
Look for more flexibility on the job.Ask your current employer (or a prospective employer) about the possibility of schedule flexibility. Be polite, direct, and specific about what you're asking for.
