Where to Start Your Work at Home Adventure

Top three companies for newbies

The first thing that most people ask when starting their work from career is how to start. There are some companies that will hire complete newbies, and some that require you to have experience. One thing to consider is whether or not you want to work as an hourly worker or work on a pay per project basis. Both have their benefits and drawbacks. The following three companies are a good place to start if you want to work from home.
  1. Leapforce

Leapforce is a company that pays per hour, but you are not an employee. This means that you do not get any employee benefits and you have to pay self-employment taxes on all of your earnings. There is a very extensive test that you must pass in order to begin working. They do not hire every applicant, so take time to develop your resume. I currently work for this company and I can say that it has been a pleasant experience. I enjoy the work and love the fact that I can keep track of earnings with their invoice system. One great feature of this company is that it is one of the only hourly-paying companies where the work is completed entirely online. There is no problem with loud children or pets in the background.


  1. Textbroker

If you can write in good English and you have good grammar skills, textbroker is a good starter company to work for. They pay per article written. Compensation is dependent on your level, ranked from one to five. This is the first company that I wrote for, and overall they are a good place to work. They pay weekly and pay on time. The one drawback is that if you are ranked lower than a 4 there is very little work.


  1. Fiverr

Fiverr is a good starter site for anyone looking to make money at home. You can offer any service for $5, but keep in mind that you only get $4 of that. I have had great success with this site. In fact, this week alone I have made $72 dollars so far. The key is offering a unique gig and getting good ratings. Also, if you know that a certain offer is not going to be worth your time don’t do it.

Once you have established yourself in your particular field, you can branch out and start earning more money. These sites are great for those that need to make money fast and don’t mind doing real work.
