Need a New Career or Side Job So You Could Stay Home?

Education & Training with Veronica Bettencourt

The world is constantly evolving, so it's no wonder that many people have decided to start a second career, a side job, or just learn a new skill to become more marketable or for 'just in case' times when you need to pivot.

The great thing is that nowadays you can train from home using the internet. There are even jobs that you could do online or from home entirely, with no boss. 

You can offer freelance services or chose to work for a company, if you prefer. 

These are not scam type of jobs. They are real with real people doing them.

I will mention that it is best to get some training for these jobs. You can't expect to make decent money in a job that you don't have the skills for. 

Most training programs take months, not years like most college courses. 

You may decide you want to look into scopist training or transcription training

A career in scoping or transcription could be a great option, especially if you want to stay home with your kids.

You could do it all from home :)

You can even learn how to sell feet pics online. This one is no joke and you can actually make good money doing this. 

Decide if you'd like to work as a freelancer or work with a company. Either way, you can still find some area of work worth going after. It will also depend on your interests and what you can see yourself doing for some time.

Are you more of an extrovert or introvert? Regardless, it is good to know because it may affect how well you like a specific job. Some careers are for people more extraverted in nature, while others are for more introverted type individuals.

There are actually a lot more at-home careers, than listed here, that you may be interested in pursuing.

The internet has definitely opened doors for people to work from home, as well as to start new businesses. I've been mostly working out of my home office for many years, and I love it. But selling feet pics...I had no idea! LOL
