A great question, “Are there any legitimate working at home opportunities worthy of trying” and one that I am going to try and answer in this short article.
With technology expanding at such a rate, jobs are scarce and no longer secure as they once were.
People throughout the world are realizing this, and searching for other ways to boost their incomes and hopefully to replace their current ones.
With the Internet, there has never been a better time to research alternative ways of earning a living.
The Internet is relatively new and was born in the early ’60s but it wasn’t until 1989 that the Internet became public on the commercial front, and wasn’t until late 1990 that a British guy at Cern, Tim Berners-Lee developed the world wide web and a bunch of other tools to go with it.
So here we are 28 years later with around 4.5 billion who currently have access to the Internet, which is well over half the world population, and with anyone and everyone searching for literally anything you can think of, there is no better time than the present!
There are literally thousands of opportunities on the Internet and here is the big problem!
If like me you have researched this subject, then you will have come across many opportunities that promise you wealth. In fact, in a lot of cases. instant wealth.
My advice to you is to stay well away from them, they just don’t work, period.
All you will do is end up losing money and in a lot of cases thousands, so please if someone dangles a carrot then just ignore them.
If you are new to all this Internet stuff then you need to be well aware of all the scams that are out there. These people have no scruples at all and wouldn’t think twice about stealing from their own grandma’s.
Seriously stay well away!
Must have heard the old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is”
What about a complete lifestyle change?
How about a complete mindset change and actually working for yourself?
Just look at the freedom you will have.
No more early rises and travelling those miles to and from work.
No more answering to your boss.
Get up when you want and start work if and when you want.
More freedom to spend with your family and friends.
What about travelling and working anywhere in the world? All you need is a laptop and an internet connection.
Wouldn’t it be nice to actually be in a position to tell your boss that you have had enough and wish to resign?
Wouldn’t you like to actually say goodbye to that mundane existence and start a business for yourself?
This is easier than what you may think, seriously I should know as I took this step several years ago and haven’t looked back since. Granted it is not easy, but if it was easy then everybody would be doing it, wouldn’t they?
What is a legitimate work from home job?
There are literally 100’s if not 1000’s of legitimate working at home opportunities worthy of trying that you can find on the Internet.
You just need to do your research, and thoroughly too.
There are literally 100’s of paid survey sites, but they won’t get you rich take it from me, and be careful as some sites are unscrupulous.
If freelance work is what you are looking for there is an unlimited amount of resources offering this type of work. It all depends on what your thing is.
- Article Writing
- Graphic Design
- Online Research
- Data Entry
- Spreadsheet Work
- Virtual Personal Assistant
- Data Analysis
Just to name a few
There is an enormous amount of people out there looking to learn pretty much anything. How about passing on your knowledge to others?
A great way to get enormous satisfaction and to get paid well too.
It may be that you have a creative mind and would like to get involved with developing websites.
Why not, that’s exactly what I do for a living and before you say, “Hey, I have absolutely no idea or any technical abilities”, nowadays that is not a problem. Everything is pretty much automated.
Don’t get me wrong having some development experience is good but not a requirement.
That is literally a thing of the past!
Ten years ago if you asked me to create a website, it would literally have taken me a couple of weeks and that would be just to get the site to a basic level, and therefore be rest assured this is now a thing of the past.
Maybe 5 years ago I would have shied away from anything to do with writing, but since I found the right training platform and mentors I haven’t looked back.
Not something that comes naturally to me and I’m learning all the time but when you are developing your website then there is plenty of content to be written.
This is a great way to earn some really good money if languages are your thing. That’s me out of this category, but I have a friend who knows several languages and earns a good living from it.

All the above have endless opportunities that you can research in the comfort of your home, and make money, but just think about it.
You will still be working for somebody else.
Someone who will be controlling your workload and most importantly all your paychecks.
Why not work for yourself and create a business that you can be proud of?
This isn’t as hard as you may think.
Working for yourself and creating a business that will be around for years to come is not beyond the realms and is within everybody’s reach.
You just need to have the right mindset, a determined focus with the will to succeed.
As I mentioned earlier all the above suggestions have one thing in common, even though you will be working from home you will always be working for somebody else, unlike the suggestion that I am going to introduce you to.
The business model that I came across several years ago and tried to learn through the likes of Facebook, YouTube, and other Guru related products was Affiliate Marketing, but the information I was being fed was not accurate and very misleading, and besides, and it’s a good job I found out early that all this could end up costing me a fortune.
You can read an article I wrote on Affiliate Marketing here!
This is a really simple and straightforward business model and one that anybody can learn.
There are 4 straightforward steps to any successful online business
- Choose an Interest, a niche
- Build your website
- Get ranked in Google and get visitors to your website
- Earn commissions
In essence, those top 3 are what it takes to build a successful online business.
The last one “Earn commissions” comes naturally when the first 3 are done correctly.
When you break it all down into these steps everything becomes clear and makes complete sense I think you’ll agree?
What you must be aware of are these processes aren’t going to be done overnight. They will take time and therefore there is work to be done.
Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day!
The more time you put into this business the quicker you will get to your goal of “Freedom” from the 9-5.
All it takes is for you to find the right mentor along with the right training platform, but that can be easier said than done, so I’m going to help you bypass all the research and possibly 100’s and 1000s of lost dollars in investments.
If you want to learn how all this is done then please read my review of my number one recommended product.
In this day and age pretty much everybody is looking for ways to make a living from the Internet and therefore hope I have given you some ideas, but whichever route you take please research your topic and beware of many of the scams that are out there.
It may be that all you are looking for is a way of making some extra money to top up your current income, and if that is the case then no problem and I wish you all the best, but before you do, just step back and think about what could be a life-changing decision?
I can tell you for sure that there are no quick ways, no magic button to press that will give you instant riches. It takes time to build a successful business and one you can be proud of for many years to come.
Just think about it a “Passive Income for life”. A business that will generate income for you and your family 24/7/365 which will give you an unlimited amount of freedom to do whatever you desire.
