I was just recently asked, “What can to make $1,000 a month from home?” Keep in mind that I have been asked this question several times before but I thought that I would take the time to discuss it today because it seems to be a very popular question nowadays.
What do you think?
Is it possible?
If so, how can this be accomplished?
I will give you my honest opinion and experience about whether or not this is attainable and if so, how to do it.
First let me say that when I am asked this particular question, most of the time it has not been revealed to me whether or not the person has a special skill, is experienced in a certain field, or has a plan of exactly what they want to do so this discussion will be based around these factors.
Working from home is an exciting and beneficial experience for those who are able and have the desire to do so. Getting your first check or payment working remotely can be even more exciting because now you are able to see the rewards of your hard work. Whether you have earned $100, $200, or even $500 you are happy that you are able to generate some income online.
At this point, you may want to set some higher goals for yourself. Maybe you want to work from home on a full-time basis. You may also have the goal of possibly moving up in the company or you could just want to be able to earn at least $1,000 a month from home.
Is this even realistic?
This can be difficult to achieve for those who are just starting to work from home and those who have worked from home for a few months or even years. Difficult but not impossible. So the answer is yes, you can really earn $1,000 a month from home. For most of us, this does not happen overnight. It will take some sacrifice, a lot of hard work, and dedication but it can be done.
When I first started working from home, I was happy to earn about $70 a week. What was I doing? What I am doing right now – writing. Writing content online for companies on a regular basis. Ultimately I had some greater goals for myself and I was able to reach them by planning ahead. I thought carefully about what I wanted to do and pursued it. You can do the same thing too. Here are a few steps that you can implement as well.
- Be selective in which jobs you choose.
- Work more hours if you are able to.
- Work more than 1 work at home job at a time.
- Try working other jobs that you would have never considered for extra income.
- Acquire some side gigs that will be worth your time.
- Calculate and re-calculate to make sure that you will reach $1,000 a month.
A lot of times, what we started off doing is not what we end up doing. For example, some of you may have started off in customer service and switched to sales because it was more profitable. Maybe you were like me, initially started working from home writing for various companies and now you write on your own blog or website. Whatever you decide to do, just keep all of your options open and choose wisely as to which jobs will garner you the most income in a certain amount of time worked.
Do not rule out those easy or crowd-sourcing tasks for extra income because you will get faster and more efficient at them and be able to increase your earnings dramatically over time.
