  • What are the kinds of jobs that are being distributed to work from home freelancers? How do you receive payments for such jobs?

  • Good question Lilla. In my opinion work at home jobs are more difficult to find than online businessses. But of course online businesses takes time.

  • Yes that is true, there are a lot people that are getting duped by sites that are offering freelance jobs that are bogus (not paying freelancers) but there are also companies that are also true to their words. Let me site some examples Odesk is one, Remotestaff is another, and a lot of sites that you just need dig deep to find them. I suggest go to one of the sites that I mentioned, register, and complete that task that are necessary to find that job. Also it is true to be skeptical, because I do that sometimes when picking my clients (so far all of them paid me) but just try, take assesment tests, take time to answer questions, who knows they might/it be client that you are looking for, RELIABLE. Also one thing, when you are working for a client, make sure that you establish a good relationship with your client, trust me, it really helps. So good luck!
