Finding the Best Work From Home Jobs

An Updated List of Legit Work From Home Jobs in 2019

The “gig economy”. Having an “entrepreneurial mindset”. Working a job that’s “location independent”. These are all phrases that have popped up over the past several years, in relation to working from home.

If you work a traditional 9-to-5, do these terms sound almost fictional, or at least not possible for someone of your age or level of expertise?

Well, I’m a tiny bit embarrassed to tell you I haven’t updated my own resume in quite some time. I’d guess roughly 8 years. I know, I know — blasphemous! So this post is a timely reminder for us all, myself included.

No matter how solid & stable your current employment situation may be, you should never rest on your laurels without having a backup plan.

Because there are really no guarantees in the workforce. And once your employment is negatively affected, it’s like a ripple effect. Everything else starts to follow suit, fast and furiously hitting the fan.

Mortgage payments, bills, utilities, groceries — all the things that require money, now hang in the balance (pun intended).
