1. Telecommute from your current job
This is the easiest one of all. If you already have an office job, see if you can work from home. Why not try it for a couple of days a week at first, then move to full time if it works for you. It's a great way to try working at home too.
2. Copywriting / Ghostwriting
Copywriters/ghostwriters gain no recognition for their writing, working only for the money. There are many copywriting brokers out there who get lots of work and share it among a team of copywriters. If you're a quick writer who can write professional articles that need very little editing, this could be a good fit for you. Hunt around for a decent place to work for, though. Many have outrageously low starting wages, but there are some good ones which pay everyone a reasonable wage. You may be required to submit a minimum amount of work per week to keep one of the better copywriting jobs.
3. Freelance Writing
Not quite the same as above. This is the process of writing for many publications by pitching article ideas to magazines, blogs and newspapers. If you can sell yourself, handle rejection and come up with lots of new article ideas every day then give this a try. Freelance writers who are good at SEO could also earn a passive income for freelance writing to supplement their ad-hoc income.
4. Virtual Assistant
Have you ever worked as a secretary? Are you organised? Do you have good office skills? Get hired as a virtual assistant!
5. Start an online business
Can you make cool things? Sell them! In fact, many business ideas can work really well online. What can you offer the world?
Thanks to the internet, there are many work at home options available. Good luck!
