Transcription from Home

Transcription from home is another great way to work from home.

There are many different websites that offer this type of job which I will get into later. Many of them do require you to take a typing test and a general grammar and syntax exam to make sure you have a good command of the English language. Don’t stress about it because most people do pretty good. Even if you don’t get it the first time, you can usually try again maybe a month later.

One of the best things about Transcription from Home is that you can be a total novice and get work. That means if you just want to dip your feet in and try it, you can. Also, it’s a set your own hours kind of job so you can work as little or as much as you’d like.

When looking for legitimate transcription jobs, it’s important to do your research. When I started looking at the possibility of doing them, I asked around on social media. Believe it or not, social media is a GREAT place to get honest reviews from people doing the types of jobs you may be looking to do when it comes to working from home. There were many options that people tossed out and it was up to me to do my research. Here’s a list of a few transcription companies that hire new and seasoned workers.

Transcription from Home Companies:

To be clear, you’re not going to make a TON of money, at least initially if you just do Transcription from Home. However, there’s definitely money to be made. This is especially true if you take on many jobs (as long as you can meet deadlines) and work with multiple good companies. The limits you have with Transcription from Home are up to you. As with any work from home opportunity, do your research and find the best fit for you.

That’s it for this week! To see my last entry about Direct Sales companies go here. Next week, all about my journey to working from home so far so stay tuned!

Direct Sales Companies

Direct Sales (DS) companies are a great way to work from home in your jammies.

If you’re unsure what this is, I’ll explain. DS is when you join a company and promote their product. With each person that purchases from your website, you gain a paid commission. This is usually how it works:

  • Find a company-There are so many to choose from
  • Purchase a starter kit (if applicable)
  • Get the kit and start promoting a product.
  • Tell people about your business/product
  • Gain $ when people place orders on your site

Direct Sales gives you a chance to start your own small business while earning money in your jammies! Now, not all companies are good and not all are bad. The truth is that there are both in the industry and it’s up to you as the potential business owner to do your research.

I mentioned a moment ago that there are many companies to choose from. Here’s a starting list. They run from health and beauty to home fragrance and more. I am part of a few of these (indicated by a star next to the name)

This list is nowhere near complete but it gives an idea of some of the wonderful opportunities available in the Direct Sales world. One of the big things to remember about DS is to not only do your homework but figure out what your passion is if you want to try a DS company. Many companies do require the purchase of a starter kit to get going. They cost anywhere from $10-$100+ depending on the company you choose.

If you decide to give Direct Sales a shot, and I think if you work hard you can do well. Figure out what your passion is or if something looks interesting to you and go for it!



One of the biggest reasons people want to work from home is because you can literally work in your pajamas! That’s not to say everyone is cut out for working from home. Many people are very much capable of being able to work from home and they earn a heck of a living at it! It takes guts and determination and hard work.

I started this journey a few years ago with my freelance business, and I had no idea that one day, I’d be setting up a blog about what the journey would be like as I start to seriously set up a successful work from home business.

I’ve been looking to the possibility of working from home for a long time now. It wasn’t until recently that I figured out I was not entirely cut out for office and cubicle life. I do still have my office job and I’d encourage anyone seriously looking at working from home in any way, be it Direct Sales, Affiliate Marketing, or even a blog that makes money you will want to make sure you give yourself enough financial security to be able to carry all your bills and other responsibilities. I don’t mean to get preachy but it needs to be stated.

There are a ton of great ways to work from home, and from time to time we will discuss them on the blog. I’m planning on having some interviews on the blog and even guest posts too! Stay tuned!

This is a journey for me and anyone who’s looking to be successful. It won’t happen overnight. You’ll need to work hard and be patient with yourself and your journey. With enough drive and patience, you will be successful. I’m learning how to do that right now and it’s fantastic!

Again, welcome. I look forward to this journey!
