A few days ago I started talking about my recent journey into the world of freelance and working from home. In just a few weeks of working on Several different websites, I've come to love some companies and completely abandon others. All the while trying to find more new companies that would fit the kind of work I need.
As I go along on this journey, I'd like to take a moment to review each of the companies that I am really happy with. I may mention in passing the companies that disappoint me, but I have no interest in giving them any spotlight.
I've recently begun the journey of trying to earn some money from home. It's a hard task when you don't have a degree and your schedule is pretty much all over the place. I also had a few requirements I needed to meet.
1. I needed to be able to make my own schedule, work when the boys are sleeping, and walk away from it if they needed me.
2. I didn't want to work for an MLM (multilevel marketing company). I'm a homebody who doesn't do well trying to get people to buy something from me. Not to mention, the few good friends I have don't want to be sold to.
3. I didn't want to be on the phone. My home is far from quiet with the boys and two weeks of working for U-Haul taught me to never look back.
I had tried looking for similar jobs back when Matt and I first got married with little to no luck. Being 18 and a little naive, I fell for a scam or two. My phone was being attacked by "Work-At-Home-Mom Incredible Opportunities," get quick rich muck, and I'm pretty sure one company kept my $50 sign-up fee. A few years later and wiser, I knew better than to give anyone money and the number I gave out is one I never answer anyway. Not to mention double and triple checking a company's reputation before giving them this information to begin with. While my cell phone does occasionally silently ring to quickly be dismissed, I have yet to have anyone scam me. That's a plus anyway!
Here's what I've been up to for the past week and a half.
