5 Legitimate Work-from-Home Opportunities for 2017
It’s a new year, and we have all made our resolutions by now, right? We are all going to eat healthier, spend less, love more, and be better moms and wives. But do you also want this to be the year that you begin working from home? If so, let me tell you about 5 legitimate work-from-home opportunities for 2017!
You Really Can Do it!
When I was pregnant with my first son, I decided that I would work from home. There was no other choice in my mind. I wanted to raise my own child, and spend as much time with him as possible, while still making a decent income. Fast forward 2 1/2 years, and I am still working from home, enjoying time with my (now) 2 boys. And guess what? You can do it too! Here are 5 legitimate work-from-home opportunities for 2017.
1) Work for Leapforce
This is a completely legit company. It sounds too good to be true, but you really can:
- Choose your own hours
- Work from your laptop or desktop
- Get paid $12-$15/hr
- Have plenty of time for your family
What do you do? You get paid to surf the web. Yes, seriously. Basically, you are helping search engines decide how to rank web pages for a particular query, based on how useful each page is. You are given a set of guidelines to follow, so there is not much guess work involved.
To get started, you will have to pass a screening test. Then you will receive the guidelines, which may be studied and used during the final exam. If you are hired, your hours will be limited at first (usually 1 hr/day for a month or two), until you have proven your capabilities.
Once the powers at be see that you are operating by the guidelines, your hours will be unrestricted, and you may work up to 40 hours per week. There is usually work available around the clock. Payments are made monthly, for the hours worked the previous month. It’s that simple.
2) Start an eBay Business
This is easier than you think. You can start an eBay business for less than 30 bucks! No joke – I tell you exactly how to do this in my previous post, Starting an eBay Business: An In-Depth Guide – check it out! You can easily make $30K/year by following the guidelines in this post. And, depending on the quality of your customer service and your product line, you could make much more.
3) Start a Blog
*Affiliate links here! This means I may get a small commission if you choose to make a sale through one of my links, at no additional cost to you. Thanks for your support, fellow mom!
You knew I was going to say it! But seriously – what are you waiting for? You can start now for as little as $2.95/month for web hosting with BlueHost. Next year, you will be kicking yourself and thinking, “Man, I wish I would have done this a year ago!” Trust me, it’s so easy and cheap to get started, and there is so much opportunity for income.
Click over to my other post, How I Started a Blog While Working from Home with 2 Under 2, and you will see that it CAN be done. What made it possible for me was a cheap and amazing Ebook, Blog By Number by Suzi Whitford. It breaks every step into bite-sized pieces that can be done in as little as 10 minutes! Any busy mom can start a blog with this book!

4) Partner With Melaleuca
This is NOT what you think it is. It is a very legit system that allows you to made residual income, very similar to an insurance agent. Melaleuca is a wellness company that sells anything from environmentally friendly household cleaners to protein shakes to vitamins, essential oils, and more. What does that have to do with working from home? I’ll tell you.
Basically, you become a partner with this company and purchase their products each month (products like laundry detergent, hand soap, and healthy snacks, which you already purchase from a grocery store). You fall in love with the products (because they are awesome!) and you tell your friends, family, waitress, and anyone you see about them.
All you have to do is get them to become a member and purchase the products. Boom – your job is done. Now, they go online each month and place their own order, which Melaleuca delivers directly to their door, and you earn a percentage of the amount they spent. How easy is that?
Sounds too good to be true? Well, it’s not. I get my check from them every month, and all I did was get some friends, family, and old coworkers to sign up. They love the products, so they have stuck with them, and my work is done. If you’re good at sales, it will come even easier, and you can truly make a living off of this.
If you are interested in hearing more, please do me a huge favor and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond to you the same day. If you let me give you the details, and if you decide to join this amazing business venture, I will get paid every time you shop, and every time your customers shop. It’s no skin off your nose – it just helps me a lot…like you will want people to do for you once you become a member! I can even give you some great tips on getting started with your own first customers. If you don’t want to give me your email, please at least show your gratitude by telling them that I (Tiff Weilbacher) referred you. 🙂
Has it ever occurred to you that you could babysit someone else’s kid while you’re at home with your own? This is a win-win situation. You get paid, the parents get personal care for their child, and your child gets a play mate! Everyone is happy!
If you don’t know anyone who needs a babysitter or nanny right now, check out Care.com. It’s free to set up a profile and apply for jobs.
