I have had to be a stay at home mom, having 3 boys, 2 special needs children. I had to homeschool. I was continually looking for work from home opportunities on the side to help contribute to the family income.  I call it ” the mom hustle” This is how I got into freelance writing which has turned out to be an incredible 13-year journey! There are many work from home opportunities out there but there are also many scams let me tell you from first-hand experience.

Udemy

I found Udemy a couple of years ago and have done quite a few very helpful courses through them, I would love to share one, in particular, I am currently doing with Marguerite Conradie.

The course is 1.5 hours long and it covers the following:
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Dropshipping
  • Freelancing
  • Online Teaching
  • Course Development
Here is a brief overview of the topics:

Affiliate marketing:

This is where you drive traffic to another site and make a commission from the sales. Eg, you drive traffic to Amazon and you earn a commission from the sale that Amazon receives. You don’t handle stock, shipping or customer service- you just get a commission for driving the traffic.

Dropshipping:

Here you connect a supplier to a customer without ever holding stock. You set the price, earn more profit than in affiliate marketing, but you also handle more of the process and therefore problems like customer service, returns etc

Freelancing:

Here, you sell your skill for an hourly rate/ project fee. Whatever you are skilled in, whether it is admin, graphic design, Facebook etc, you draw up a menu of what you offer and then earn per hour/ per project.

Online Teaching:

Here you have the chance to teach from home to children/ adults around the world.

Course Development:

Here you package your experience and sell it in the form of an online course.
The course gives you insight into the five topics and the aim is for you to look at the information provided and choose an avenue that best fits your skill set.
There is no such thing as a get-rich scheme, working from home requires disciple and hard work. However, it is possible to do.
