hello everyone... i want to earn money on my own either by working for few hours from home or through internet.. so that i can earn enough money for my insulin, medicines and doctor's fees..... please recommend me few ways for this....... (may be a kind of part time job so that i get enough time for my studies)
Working from home is mostly a bad online game. Most of the money to be made doing this is by telling other people they can make money online, and selling them the information that hardly works at all.
There is much more money to be made offline, and the jobs are much healthier. Sitting at a desk is deadly. (imo) At least if you are doing that at work, you can get some exercise with the commute. (I commute by bicycle.)
Even working at a fast food place will normally have you standing and moving enough to help a person's health.
Hi, you can probably work as a HR consultant - I know a lot of others do the same so you can work in that field. Also, other way to work from home is to work on freelance projects by registering yourself on freelancer dot com or sites like elance dot com, odesk dot com. You could do just simple things like writing articles for blogs, etc or help others. There are a number of categories in those sites. I would suggest you check out those. By the way, it would help to suggest if we know what is your background or what are you studying for. - Sai.
Have you ever considered tutoring?
there are already 22 tutoring institutes in my area and home tutoring is not considered to be safe for girls here in India....
Amazon allows you to work at home from the internet at various duties with it's Mechanical Turk initiative (www.mturk.com). Some people feel it doesn't pay well. Some of the stuff is just mindless labeling of photos and stuff. But it is work. I've never done it, so take my recommendation with a grain of salt.
ok i will search for it... thank you.. :)
If you want to consider tutoring, then you might want to check out http://learnsocial.com/ which I came across through another person recently. Here you can take classes or give classes at your leisure I guess.
The mechanical turk mentioned above is known for very low rates. In the forum I spend time in, no one is interested in working for them, but they do post jobs to be done by them. I haven't used them either way, but that is the consensus.
If you are interested in writing, there is a service that hires paid forum posters. It is usually used when a forum is new. Paid people can put up a lot of posts and make it look busy enough that people want to join. (Anyone here working for them? :) )
A writer I know said she worked for them starting out and made several hundred dollars a month. She doesn't work for them anymore, but still recommends them to people looking for work.
I just collected the links to the 4 main forum pages that give you the information you to apply, but it is a slightly private forum and the links will not go directly to the pages. They only go to the home page, so you will have to find your way there.
This is the link to the forums part of the site. paidforumposting.com/forums/
Once you are there, click on the 'proving grounds' forum link. Read the 2 sticky topics at the top and you will have enough information for a start, and to apply for a position.
I happen to like posting in forums and applied about a week ago. I was turned down for going off the topics that I had posted in. It's not a big deal. If I feel like it, I can try again.
The proving grounds forum is sort of a practice forum. To start, you sign up and make 7 posts (precisely). Then you go to the sticky topic called 'Got 7 posts?' and make a post there that you do. They email you in a couple of business days with their decision.
The forum posting there was actually a bit of fun. There are a lot of topics.
You would not be accepted if you posted there the way you do here. There is a sticky on grammar rules, but they can be learned.
Edit: just found the link where they advertise their services, at attention writers
It gives more info and I wouldn't be surprised if other people here were interested too.
Take a look at a book called The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. It's full of examples of people who started and run successful business with very little up-front cash. While it won't necessarily tell you everything you need to know to start a business it should give you a bunch of ideas.
