You can also head over here, to read my full interview with her on how you can start and what you earn as a beginner.


Want a flexible work from home career that can make you a good part-time or full-time income?

Have you heard of proofreading before? It is about reading through a copy of an article or document and finding any errors in them.

There are two types of proofreading – General and Transcript.

General is good for beginners and involves reading through books or blogs finding mistakes. It’s less technical and quicker to master.

You can then move on to Transcript proofreading (which involves more legal documents) with a higher income potential. Caitlyn is an expert at proofreading and has a FREE workshop for you to join, to see if this is something that interests you.


Have an interest in crosswords and word puzzles? You will definitely love this, and the best part, the income potential is nearly $50,000/year!

What are we talking about? – SCOPING.

You will be given court transcripts to edit at home and send back via email to the court reporter. Don’t worry you don’t need to travel to court for this, most of the communication is done via emails. You need to have good grammatical skills and a decent computer with internet access to get started. Scopists can be paid anywhere between $30,000 – $50,000/ year all working from anywhere! I have an interview post with the incredible Linda Evenson who is the course creator and has been scoping for over 35 years! She talks about how you can become a scopist as a beginner in more detail here. 

But if you want to jump right in, there is a FREE mini course below FOR YOU TO TRY!


This one is my favorite and I love it! Did you know you can make money blogging? If you are looking to start a career as a blogger then you must read this post.  It teaches you how to start your own website and get set up with the help of an expert! If you want to avoid tutorials on how to start a blog and let someone else do your hard work then this is a must-read. I got my website up and running in 10 minutes!

And if you have just started blogging, I assume you know how important these two things are,

  1. Having a blog plan in your first month and the rest of the year.
  2. And increase traffic (readers) to your blog

Here are TWO FREE GUIDES-yay! One is a blog plan that you can download, written by mom blogger Suzi Whitford that earns well over $20,000 every month! And the other free guide shows you how to increase traffic to your blog MASSIVELY! Lena Gott wrote how she went from 17k to 400k page views in just 9 months! Both are must have valuable resources, if you are serious about blogging to make money!


And what if I say the hourly rate is anywhere between $25 -$100 (per the website), without a fancy college degree?

I think I got you excited, didn’t I? That’s a job of a virtual assistant. Companies find it hard to deal with managing their emails, social media, and their website/blog. So they outsource this to virtual assistants to assist them. If you are looking for a more detailed job description, you can download this list of 150 services you can offer as a virtual assistant to see if it will be a good fit for you.


Now, this might take you by surprise. But there are people making wayyyy more than a full-time income doing this!

You can sell something you dont use online, for a profit! You’ll be surprised how many buyers are around who want what you are ready to sell! Melissa and her husband Rob have been doing this for many years and make over $133,000 a year! They can teach you exactly how this can be done from start to finish. There isn’t a free course to flipping, but if just thought I’d include it in here if you’d like to check it out!
