  1. I think this should be titled Home based business rather than work at home jobs. Almost everything you described is someone working for themselves and owning their own business. This is not the same as a work at home job. A job working from home, or telecommuting for a company is much different then having your own business etc. And in my opinion much easier as well. There are hundreds of companies hiring people to telecommute now. Plus many employers will allow you to work from home if you just ask. I consider that to be more work at home jobs. That’s just my opinion though.

    1. I agree, I wish I knew where to begin looking for an actual telecommuting job but in Oklahoma that seems nearly impossible.

    2. I think it’s both. If you’re at home, working, then you have a work-at-home job whether you’ve hired yourself to do it or someone else did.

      I have a corporation, and I’m an employee of my own corporation.

      Starting your own gig is tough, I’ll admit, but I think it’s worth it… there is so much more freedom, plus the earning potential isn’t limited by your location, someone else, budget cuts or whatever. Working for yourself means you are in total control of your earnings (and success)… it is the new job security these days. Companies have little reason to be loyal to their employees nowadays. Working for someone else automatically gives them quite a bit of control over your success potential.

  2. Caitlin,
    I am a 76 year old ex-business woman who lost everything in the 2008-09 real estate recession. Now I need to supplement my Social Security. For a person in my situation and advanced age …..although still plenty sharp… Which of your excellent courses would you recommend to get me working and making money quickly? (I already enjoyed your 7 day course a few weeks ago.
    Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi, Marilyn. I think that really depends on your skill and interest more than your age. (Check out this great post from Bonnie about starting her new career at 69!) Anything you choose will take some time to acquire training build your business, though, especially if you’re starting something totally new. Maybe look at the skills you have and see where they fit in with the suggestions in this post.

    2. Marilyn, my heart goes out to you. While I am only 55, I experienced the same as you, losing everything in the real estate bust in 2008-2009. I had to sell my home, and I lost my rental property in my bankruptcy. Although I am a very skilled salesperson, I would often be passed over for jobs because of my age. Why hire a middle-aged, slightly overweight woman when they could hire a cute young thing for less money? I am currently working as a nanny, which I love, but it doesn’t challenge me mentally, and it barely pays my bills. $10-12 and hour doesn’t compare to a six-figure income! My ex-husband is a court reporter, and I often proofread his transcripts. While I do have experience, I really think that this program will put me miles ahead. I don’t know why it never occurred to me before to pursue this as a full-time job! The good thing is that it is something that I can do, even if I decide to continue babysitting. I often have 4-5 hours during the day when my baby is asleep, and at the moment, I watch movies on Netflix. I am taking this course now while I am “at work.” Whatever you decide, I wish you the best! We are never too old to learn!

  3. Hello Caitlin,

    Nice sharing stuff here,

    There are hundreds of ways and ideas to work at home. One thing remains constant among all those things, however. You need to work hard. There is no magic pill to get success. Just like any kind of business opportunity, it takes effort and time to make good money working at home.

    Thanks a lot,
    Omar Saady

  4. Caitlin,
    Tears came out when I read Marilyn Barudoni’s comment… Hers is EXACTLY my story. After climbing the corporate ladder, now that I’m 71, I must come out of retirement and look for work. Being the hard worker I’ve always been, I’m ready, once again, to give my all to a new endeavor, however, I want to do it from my home office, but don’t know where to start. Not only can I proofread, but I can do it in English and in Spanish! I can also translate beautifully and accurately. –Hopefully your post will help me find something –soon!

    1. Hi, Nellie! It seems like you have many talents, and you certainly have what sounds like a great attitude and work ethic. I hope you find what you need from the post as well as our wonderful community. Good luck to you!
