Working from home, and as self-employed, is one of the goals of many people nowadays

Working from home, and as self-employed, is one of the goals of many people nowadays, in fact, it has many positive aspects such as flexibility in schedules, time saved in not having to prepare and then go to work, absence of a ‘boss’ to be accountable to, and much more.

It takes very little to start working from home, but to make this a real job that allows us to pay the bills and not have to worry about the financial side, we need to be careful and look for the best ways.

Here are three possible ones

Open an e-commerce

There are various ways to earn money with ecommerce, you can sell your own products (in which case, of course, you also need to make a desirable product!), sell another company’s products, earn money in the process, or more simply resell services online, thus avoiding the hassle of handling physical shipments.

In order to start an ecommerce business, you need to know how much money you have to invest in this activity: if you are good with websites, it is possible to create a good website on your own at almost no cost, but if you are not, you will have to rely on a web agency or a freelance developer.

The same applies to promotion: a website that is not promoted does not generate income, even if it is well made.

If you do not have a lot of money to invest, one of the best ways to start is to try to sell online on platforms that have already been set up: Amazon, eBay, online sales markets and even Facebook markeplace.

Doing specialised online consulting

If you are a psychology graduate or even an expert in your field, online counseling is a great way to earn money.

Many people hesitate to seek counselling because they cannot afford it or because they do not have the time to go to an office every week.

Online counselling is predominantly psychological, but in recent years more diverse counselling is becoming popular: dieticians and nutritionists, personal trainers, life coaches, personal stylists, wedding and event planners and much, much more!

If you are well-spoken and have a specialisation that people might demand, doing paid online consulting is a great way to earn money!

Trading cryptocurrencies online

Cryptocurrencies are one of the most popular ways to earn money online in recent years.

Those who work with cryptos perform a similar type of activity to the classic corporate stock investor, but cryptos have some characteristics that distinguish them from classic stocks.

First of all, their value is not set uniformly by a single market, which means that a coin may have two different values on two different exchange sites.

Also, their value over time is much more volatile.

This can make them more volatile than other currencies, but it also opens up the possibility of making money through online trading.

If you want to get into this market without having much previous experience in stock trading or foreign exchange markets, it is best to start small: start with something like bitcoin (BTC), which has been around longer than most cryptocurrencies and has therefore established itself as rather stable compared to newer currencies, which may be less trusted by investors.
