You really can work your dream job from the comfort of your very own home. Read on to find out how.
Traditionally, fashion design has been a very tough industry to break into. Not only would you need to live in a major city that has its own fashion week, but you would need to grind your way to the top by designing for the big names while receiving little credit.
However, thanks to the internet, things are currently quite different. Indeed, now, it’s totally possible to be a successful fashion designer from your own home. All you need is the inspiration, the right software, and an apparel manufacturer that can make your vision a reality. Indeed, by choosing a custom clothing manufacturer you can design, and produce your own fashion brand ready to sell directly to consumers online. All from the comfort of your sofa.
Honestly, being an artist has often been a career that is home, or at least studio-based. However, the great thing about being an artist right now is that if you choose to work digitally you don’t even need a studio.
Instead, what you will need is a drawing tablet like a Wacom or iPad and pencil, and that’s about it. Then you can sell your art digitally online, or send it to a printer to have IRL pieces made up.
You can even learn everything you need to know about becoming an artist from home online, both in terms of the skills you need, and how to monetize your art to ensure it’s a successful business.
Doctors work in hospitals or surgeries, right? Well, while you will definitely have to put some time in at these kinds of places to get qualified, you don’t necessarily have to step foot in a hospital once you are established.
The reason for this is telemedicine, which involves doing medical consults online remotely. Of course, there are some privacy and HIPAA considerations here, so if you do want to work as a doctor from home you will need to make sure you have a secure internet network, a dedicated computer, and a space to work in that is private enough so that others around you cannot hear your patient as they speak.
For the longest time, rock stars and other musicians have made their money and their name gigging on the road. However, once again thanks to the Internet, performing in dive bars and clubs is no longer the only way to musical success.
Indeed, by writing, recording, and producing your music at home and then by using sites like SoundCloud to release it to the public you can become a megastar from your very own couch!
To make a decent living as an actor, it used to require film, TV, radio, or theater work. Of course, there are still plenty of people pursuing these things in the name of their acting career, but there are other home-based opportunities as well.
In particular audio acting, for voice-over and audiobooks can bring in the bogs bucks, and all you need to succeed is a great voice and the right mixing and recording equipment at home.
