Are a full time student or a “stay at home” mom or dad? Ever wished you could earn money but can’t seem to leave your home or can’t manage to find enough time? You need not to worry as now it’s possible. Thanks to the internet, you can now make money sitting at your home. It has made our lives easier, helping us in connecting with friends, buying things, booking flights and what not and now it helps us make money online, that too staying at your home.

It may sound out of the ordinary for many but it is really easy. All you need is a stable internet connection and bank account(after all this is where all your income will get landed!).

Don’t limit yourself to only finding jobs outside your home. You might be surprised to find even more opportunities on the internet. There are many companies on the web that allow independent contractors or freelancers and clients to meet.

“What is a Freelancer?” you might say. Well, a freelancer is someone who does work for other people but has control over his or her own work and does not have an employer whom he or she works for. Examples are doctors, accountants, editors, writers, graphic designers and many more. Even if you are not a professional, but you are talented with designing or have excellent writing skills and grammar or can develop user friendly applications or websites. There are numerous jobs like writing, transcribing, designing, web development and many more that you can do on the web sitting at your home.

Companies like oDesk and Freelancer (recommended) are examples of the websites that provide you opportunity to work as a freelancer (find more here). The best part is that you do not need to worry about conflicting schedules. Since you are an independent contractor, you are able to control your time. You decide what time to work and how much load to get. Awesome right!

But remember the more time you are able to give the more earnings you can get. If you are a “stay at home” parent, when your spouse leaves for work and the kids have already left for school, you can start your work immediately. And if you are a student, you can work during your free time, or during the weekends. Yup that’s right, even on weekends.

One more amazing thing, unlike work in the office setting, the internet runs 24 hours a day, 7 hours a week. There are no rest days, which mean that job opportunities are always available any time you check. Like I said, you have control of your time. And just because you are busy for a particular time, this doesn’t mean that you have to quit your job. Like I said, you have control of your time. You can work whenever you have free time.
