Are there entry-level work from home jobs?
Almost any job that can be performed in an office, can be done from home as long as you have the right mindset and drive to work independently and without a supervisor hovering over your desk.
It sounds strange but a lot of people can’t focus without their boss nearby or their co-workers offering constant support. For those who can successfully break free of the office, working from home is amazing, but that’s not the topic of your question. You want to know how you can make a good income working from home.
How are your skills?
Are you organized? Are you comfortable on a computer using Excel, Word, Google Docs, etc? Do you know something about social media? Can you research topics online? If so there are plenty of jobs where these core skills will get you in the door. Some require experience or training in additional areas but the internet is full of training options as well. Here are a few that often have entry level and higher positions available to work from home.
