We talk a lot around here about starting your own business and becoming an entrepreneur, but what if you are one of those people who would like to earn a little money on the side without creating a business? You just want to work at home. You’re not alone! There are lots of reasons you might rather work for an established company to earn money from home. Maybe you need extra cash before your own business takes off. Or maybe you just need a temporary job to get you over a financial hump.
Whatever the reason, there are plenty of legitimate companies who frequently hire work at home workers and have we got a list for you!

Online surveys are hit or miss and often don’t pay that well, but it’s something you can do on your smart phone while binge watching.
Writing is my bread and butter, so of course, I have to find a way to give you options in this field. I make the majority of my earnings from private clients, but there are websites you can sign up for to make extra cash without that level of commitment. These sites are what are often called content mills. They usually don’t pay great, but I still use them for extra earnings when business is slow. I prefer BlogMutt and Textbroker just because I can easily find an assignment and make some money pretty quickly, but you might find that other platforms work better for you.

It’s become a pretty common trend for companies to hire telecommuters and new ones are jumping on the bandwagon every day. Also, there are companies that only have a select number of work at home jobs available and you need to know where to look so that you don’t miss them!
Indeed – Type “remote” or “telecommute” into the keywords section.
FlexJobs – FlexJobs specializes in home from home and flexible jobs, so this is the perfect place to keep an eye out for openings. It is a fee-based service, so it’s probably only for you if you are serious about finding your next remote position.
The following websites are also goldmines of information and work from home job opportunities:
