How do I get started? To become an Interior Decorator (this is different from Interior Designer) I recommend starting a website, take quality photos of your work, ask friends and family if you can work for them at no charge to help add to your portfolio, once you’ve created a polished visualization of your work you can then start to charge for your service.
Amazon's Mechanical Turk allows people to do repetitive quick tasks for small sums of money. There are a number of competing smaller platforms like MicroWorkers and JobBoy. It can be hard to make a strong income on these sorts of platforms, but they can provide incremental income by allowing you to do multiple things at the same time. If you have a particular skill or gig which is quick to do, but doesn't fit into one of the above sorts of categories there are also sites like Fiverr which allow people to price various tasks or offerings like voiceovers, drawings, or help with some technical problem at various price points.
Another flexible non-phone option in the educational field is test scoring. There are a few reputable companies that do hire home-based workers to score everything from standardized tests to essays.

I am also new to the work from home world but not that new. I have done some work with MCA and SFI. Neither worked for me well. But I am a young stay at home mother of four, all children being 5 and under. And I’m looking for some part time or full time work to support me and the kids. Phone or non-phone is great. I prefer non-phone work because of the kids. And non-writing as well. Thanks for your help. 🙂

I forgot to also share that I will be starting work with On Point as an Advocacy Coordinator too. It sounds like a great job that helps our fellow Americans keep informed about political issues. On Point is the voice of the average citizens that may have an opinion to share with their politicians but have no way of knowing how to contact them. On Point makes sure those voices get heard.

Freelance writing has completely changed our lives. For years, we worked great jobs in a funeral home. However, those jobs also demanded tons of time and exceptional amounts of emotional energy.
