If you really want to cut the employer cord, or don’t have an area of expertise or desire be a contract worker or freelancer, you can start a business. Many people are scared off by the complexity of starting a business, but while there are a lot of steps, they can be fairly easy to implement. In fact, you can have a business up and running within a month. Businesses are usually divided into product-based and service-based. In product-based business, you sell a tangible good, such as gift baskets, craft goods, or an invention you made. However, the internet also provides for the sales of digital goods, as well. A service-based business involves providing a service, such as home cleaning, childcare, or digital design.

Get dressed. “I find that the most important thing for me is to keep a regular routine and to shower and dress every day as if I were going to an actual office,” says Jenifer Kramer, Principal of West Hollywood, California-based Jenerosity Marketing. Catherine Waldron, education specialist, with Enfield, Connecticut-based language curriculum company QTalk Publishing, agrees, and says she showers and dresses for work every day. “Getting dressed makes the home office more like a real office, and tells and reminds everyone, especially you, that even though you may be sitting on the sofa reading, browsing the Web, or talking on the phone, that you are actually working,” she says.

Another popular freelance platform is Fiverr. It’s similar to Upwork as you can get paid to do just about any task where the completed work can be delivered electronically and setting up a profile here gives you additional exposure to potential freelance clients. Fiverr gets its name from the fact the freelancers can charge $5 (or more) per gig. For select tasks, some sellers charge up to $10,000 per task. Now that’s a serious payday! Many Fiverr customers like to hire freelancers like you to design eBook covers, create company logos, write blog posts, create digital videos and audio recordings, and other tasks they don’t have the skills to complete. My wife and I have personally used Fiverr to hire somebody to create a book cover for a self-published book. One the gig is complete, you get paid.
