Working from home would be a dream for most people, especially with jobs that can pay more than $50,000 per year! Most work from home jobs, such as customer service agents, usually bring in low hourly wages such as $13 per hour. This is ok, but wouldn’t it be better to bring in a higher salary, so you can earn more money and have a better standard of living! Well, I have created a list of 5 work from home jobs that have the potential of bringing in a salary of $50,000 per year or more.
1.Bookkeeper/Accountant: I personally know lots of women who are full-time work from home bookkeepers and most bring in $50,000 or more. I think the key to making 50K or more as a bookkeeper from home would be to either start your own business, be a great bookkeeper and charge high rates. The other option is to get a degree in accounting and work for a virtual accounting firm. You can also use FREE bookkeeper training from Accounting Coach or you can opt to take a course at your local community college. These will be the most affordable options for you to start your career. You can also opt to become a ProAdvisor with QuickBooks since most small businesses are using this software for their accounting. I am a ProAdvisor and the training is really good. You can become a ProAdvisor at www.QuickBooks.com/ProAdvisor
2. Medical Coding: The healthcare industry is growing fast with the aging baby boomer epidemic. It may be a good time to become a medical coder! Most of these jobs are work from home jobs, however, you will have to be trained! CareerStep.com, a medical coding training center, states that you can expect to make an average of $52,605 per year. Career step training is certified through AHIMA, which is a professional organization for health information management careers.
3.Business Analyst: Business analysts are critical for gathering project requirements. They generally work in corporate environments, but the main thing is that they can work from home. Becoming a business analyst usually requires a Bachelor’s degree in Business or Technology, and requires some experience in the industry. You can expect to average $75,534 per year as a business analyst based off of Indeed.com. You can get business analyst certifications with the International Institute of Business Analyst IIBA. I personally know people who have these jobs and they work from home making big bucks!!
4.Web Developer: If you are very creative and love to code then becoming a freelance web developer might be the best thing for you! Based off of US Occupational Outlook report, a Web Developer can make an average of $66,130 per year. And the best thing about it is that you can work from home. Also, you don’t even need a bachelor’s degree, many web developers are self-taught from free tutorials online such as the www.w3schools.com. Or you can opt to take classes from a coding school such as www.teamtreehouse.com ,www.codeacademy.com, or your local community college!
5.Freelance writer or blogger: The internet has created a big demand for people who can create useful content on the web!
