5 Stellar Work from Home Job Ideas for 2019
Working from home is becoming way more than a trend, it’s become a stamp of modern lifestyle. As city traffic becomes more congested, life becomes more hectic and nerves become more frayed, more and more people are realising the value of working remotely or becoming solo entrepreneurs. One look at this comprehensive list of consulting careers gives you a clear indication of just how many experts are going into business for themselves.
Once you graduate to the level of a Consultant you can not only work-from-home but also work-from-anywhere, another booming trend. Our new workforce of Millennials is not into working for the same company for decades or being chained to a desk. Flexibility and portability are in high demand. Millennials want to spread their wings and experience the fullness of life.
Mompreneurs enjoy flexibility and portability too. Smartphones and tablets have changed the way Moms do business. It allows them to be there for their children, without sacrificing their careers.
They can sneak in an important message to a client or even design something on Canva in the middle of a playdate, swimming gala or soccer match.
They can set up their phone in the kitchen while they are cooking or cleaning and listen to podcasts or watch YouTube videos. (I know because I just did that while I was packing the dishwasher).
So with all this in mind, here’s what we consider to be the hottest Work-from-Home Job ideas for 2019:
We’ll start here since we mentioned Consulting already.
Consultants come in all shapes and sizes. The bottom line is if you’re an expert in anything, you can start marketing yourself as a Consultant online and charge way more per hour, per day or per job than you were getting paid for the very same expertise in the corporate world. LinkedIn is the perfect platform to launch your Consulting career.
2. Digital Entrepreneur
Okay, okay, you got me. Of course, I had to mention this next because it’s what I do. I have 3 niche websites and I’ll be scaling my business this year when I start creating online courses and other digital products for each of them.
Having an online business is probably the simplest way to work-from-home, for yourself. All you need is a laptop, tablet or smartphone and an internet connection and you’re good to go.

3. Virtual Assistant
Here’s another job that’s hotter than ever right now. Online skills are in huge demand. Small business owners and big companies alike are looking for skilled SEO writers, WordPress Developers, Social Media Managers, Transcriptionists, Editors, Proofreaders, Email Marketers, App Developers.
4. Online Influencer
You no longer have to be a musician, actress or model to become an Online Influencer. You don’t even have to have a huge personality (although that could help if you’re a YouTuber). I’ve seen online influencers making a killing online who are complete introverts. Creating influence and authority online can be done with beautiful imagery, words or a unique take on life.
5. Graphic Designer or Webmaster
A picture tells a thousand words and graphic designers and skilled web developers understand the art of packing a punch with powerful design. This is a creative exploit you can easily do from home. You can sell services on freelance platforms like Fiverr, Upwork and Etsy. On platforms like these, you’ll find anything from logo design and business cards to book covers and T-shirts.
