Since so many things have been breaking around here lately, I’ve needed more money than I’ve been earning. Getting a job in my area wasn’t an option, and wallowing in self-pity wasn’t working either. I knew there had to be a way to earn money from home working part-time, seriously, I even wrote a book on it! So, I got out a copy of my book and began searching through it for an income stream that might work for me.
Truth be told, I was already doing two of the jobs I had written about in my book, but they’re both very part-time, and I needed more money. Finally, I came to the chapter I had written about working at home as a customer service representative. Some businesses were very rigid in their scheduling, but one of the resources I had listed was absolutely perfect for my situation.
And so, I got started as an independent agent taking calls for infomercials from the comfort of my own home – after my kids go to bed at night. I did a little bit of training, had an additional telephone line installed for only around $14 per month, paid for my background check, bought a headset telephone, and started working. Since I was nervous, it seemed stressful at first, but once I got the hang of it, I found that I really do like doing it.
I make my own schedule, the pay is good, and I get to work from home. There’s not much more that I could as for. Well, maybe I could ask for things to quit breaking, but with regards to the job, I’m completely satisfied.
Some people feel that they are stuck in their job, earning only what their current job pays. The reality is that there are other ways to earn money. Trust me, I wrote a book on 100 of them, and I personally do 3 of them.
It’s not always easy juggling jobs and 3 kids, but it is possible. Don’t feel stuck. If you’re not happy with your income, you can earn more without taking on another full-time job. Just do your research. The opportunities are out there.
