​If you are a stay-at-home mom, then you obviously put the needs of your family and home first. But are there times when…

  • you feel like you would like to do something a bit different in your spare time?
  • you wish that you could use the skills you have, so they don’t get rusty by the time the kids grow up a bit?
  • you are waiting on the side of the swimming pool wishing you had something to do other than wait for the swimming meet to finish?
About this site anywhere and anytime

Waiting for the meet to finish?

This site is developing around the idea that there must be jobs you can do whenever and wherever you are. In this day and age where we all use iPods, laptops and other such gadgets all the time, we might as well make the best use of them. With the internet accessible almost everywhere now, it is easy to take advantage of sites that might let us work wherever we are and whenever we can.

As a mother you need to be able to slip in work wherever it fits, you need to be able to work at your own pace, and you can’t be plagued by dead-lines that aren’t your own. You need to be able to manage your own time and dictate when you can work on things that aren’t family or home related.

This site gives two routes to achieve this:

  • One option is to do flexible work where you generally work for someone else – for example blogging on other peoples’ sites, editing, proofreading, doing something like Fiverr gigs or working for work-from-home companies like NexRep or Convergys.
  • The other option is to build up your own online business – affiliate marketing, building websites for clients, developing online courses, building your own proofreading business, building your own virtual bookkeeping business or flipping websites – all things where you are your own boss.

This site also provides access to methods and training of how to develop an online business, become an affiliate marketer, get profitable blogging opportunities, learn how to write and blog effectively, how to proofread court transcripts, how to become a virtual bookkeeper and other such applicable skills.

About this site Anywhere and Anytime

Or click on my picture to contact me and I’ll respond

There are a lot of jobs that can be done anywhere. But the anytime part is more difficult to find. So this site is starting out with a few that are really anytime as well as anywhere jobs, such as Scribendi.

The second option isn’t a job per say, but definitely a way to engage yourself, learn, and in time generate an income as well. Building a website or a business online may sound scary, but it isn’t so difficult when you have the training, support and guidance you need. But like learning anything else, it takes time and application. The relevance here is that it is on your terms – you are in charge of when and where you do it and hence in charge of your own ‘job advancement’.

If you have any questions or ideas, please do leave them below and I’ll get back to you. Or you can contact me directly here.

  1. Hi there, I work for a Boston based company that is looking for workers who are interested in web research.

    Here is a brief bit about the role:

    1. RESEARCH – Your task is to find the social media profiles (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) of chosen individuals.
    2. RECORD – After reviewing each social media profile, you should be able to distill the main interests/hobbies of a person and summarize these on our website.
    3. PROPOSE – Based on the list of interests that you have researched, you will propose some gift ideas that you believe would be appropriate for the person to use.

    If you know of anyone in your network who would be interested, I would love to have a further conversation. Thank you for your time!

    Best,
    Tori

  2. Hi Robin, great website! I’ve only been doing freelance copywriting but your website has helped me consider other alternatives too. Really appreciate it! A friend of mine does telemarketing services from home, but it seems like such a pain. I like the peacefulness of writing copy with no one to bother me.

    • I’m glad it has helped you think of other options, Sarah.
      I also prefer a career I am in control of and can work on at my own pace (besides the client deadlines, of course. 😀 )

      Let me know if you have any other questions,
      Robin

  3. Hi Robin. A few more legitimate work from home companies you might want to review are Sutherland Global Services, Sykes, Sitel, Asurion, and Apple (all these have benefits) and U-Haul, Support.com and LiveOps.

  4. Hi Robin,

    I love this site and your information about transcribing and proofreading. The courses for Transcribe Anywhere and Proofread Anywhere are set up in very similar ways. Even the sites are in the same style. Even the personal styles of Janet and Caitlin are the same. I’m wondering if they are affiliated. I heard about Transcribe Anywhere, first, and was considering it. Then, today, I learned about Proofread Anywhere. I’ve done some legal proofreading in the past and I’m interested in the course. Thanks for any information.

    • Hi Emily,
      Glad you like it. Thank you. 🙂
      Caitlin helped Janet revamp her site and hence I guess the similarities. Caitlin is a super helpful and enthusiastic person and that comes through in all the different projects she works on.

      If you have any specific questions, fire away! 🙂
      Robin

      • Thanks so much, Robin. I read your interviews with both Janet and Caitlin, so most of my questions are answered. I signed up for Caitlin’s free 7-day course. But, I have a feeling I’ll be taking the whole course. Glad to know the connection between Janet and Caitlin. I really enjoyed my interaction with Janet. Just think maybe the proofreading course may be a better fit for me. Especially, since I’ve done something similar in the past. Granted, it was the distant past. Anyway, you have helped me with my decision. I’ll get back to you if more questions pop up.

        Thanks again,
        Emily

  5. Hi Robin,

    Thanks for providing great ideas for work at home jobs and businesses that anyone with relevant skill set can pursue online from the comfort of their home. The distinction between online work at home jobs and work at home businesses can be confusing.

    Freelance writing online, for example, can be a work at home job online when you are picking up clients through various online channels. But, if you sell your pre-written articles, blog posts, etc content online through various content marketplaces, you are actually running a writing business. If you write for other blog site owners or webmasters, it is also like an online work at home business.

    I have been writing blog posts for two blog sites in “work at home” and “make money online” niches for over a year now. I treat this work as a home based freelance blogging business.

    You have created a wonderful site filled with tons of useful posts. Hope you continue to produce more great work. I will be checking back soon again and again . 🙂

  6. Hi Robin,
    This is a great site! I finally learned what Fiverr is all about after hearing about it but not knowing what it was. And I’m going to check out the Write Like Freddy info too. Thanks so much for sharing this info. I’ll be back again very soon!

  7. Hi Robin,

    Wonderful site. Your information is pertinent to anyone who does not want to work outside of their home. I never realized the were so many options. Keep up the good work.

    • Yes, there are quite a few options, Della. And the nice thing about many ideas mentioned here is that you can start small and expand when you get more time as the kids grow up.
      Robin
