150 Freelance Jobs You Can Work From Home

Feb Post 2

What are my options?

Anything and everything. In today’s job economy you can literally turn most creative or technical skill-based corporate jobs into a freelance business. You can totally customize your career based on a unique set of skills and passions. Some people have a current talent that they are aware of and decide to use that. Others are attracted to the lifestyle of working at home but aren’t sure what to do with it. If you know you want to work at home and start a freelance business, but you aren’t sure what to do, here is an exhaustive list to get the cogs turning.

I’ve sectioned off the list into different industries with positions you could create for yourself. Some are more creative, others are technical, and many are a combination of both.

Even though this list is extensive, it’s only a fraction of what you could do. But I don’t want to give you eye strain, so I’ll keep the list trim, just to get you thinking of the possibilities.

So yeah, literally anything.

There are successful freelancers out there doing every one of the jobs above and often a creative combination. And don’t get hung up on picking the perfect one. Sometimes you need to experiment with a couple different options and see what you enjoy most. I’ve changed my freelance focus many times and I’ve also combined a few different skills into one position.

A client would hire me for one thing, I saw another need, pitched my ability (or willingness to learn) to solve their problem and they allowed me to add that into my package. Other times I would build upon my initial skill. For example, I started out video editing but evolved into video consulting and producing, and the into video marketing, which paid more and required more leadership skills.

Always be learning. Always be growing. The most successful soloprenuers are always finding ways to expand their skillset and build upon their current work so they can increase their rates and provide more value. That's what brings them job security and keeps them relevant. The world of business is changing so fast, you have to adapt with it. Hopefully this was helpful. Start exploring!
