IMPORTANT NOTE: This post contains offers from Black Friday 2018 which will now have expired. However, links to companies will still function and lead to products at full price. Please ensure you check what you’re buying! Ah, Black Friday. The ever-growing annual retail event that seriously divides opinion. On one side you have the people who set their alarms to queue up for bargains at local malls; On the other, those who hate the tacky celebration of commercialism and tut disdainfully at the annual video footage of human beings fighting over discounted flatscreen TVs. I’m firmly in the latter camp. However,…

I’m feeling rather “down with the kids” this week, after finally getting around to establishing a presence on Instagram! As I discussed in a post last week, the vision behind HomeWorkingClub is as much about living  a “freelance lifestyle” as it is about making money. In some cases, there’s even a trade-off between money and freedom, and a point where people have to decide whether to work to live or live to work. Before moving back to the UK in 2015, I spent several years living in Portugal (whilst there I quite literally wrote the book on it – you’ll…

Have you ever wondered whether there are any Apple work from home opportunities? I’m pleased to tell you there are! Apple work from home jobs have been reported on across the web this week, in publications including Entrepreneur. These home-based jobs with Apple are Apple “At Home Advisor” roles, and there are also some supervisory and area manager positions. Based on the reports that have sprung up online, Apple are recruiting for these in the US at present. However, reading about these Apple work from home opportunities triggered me to do a bit of wider research, and it appears that…

There’s been some encouraging news about freelance earnings this week. According to an analysis conducted by the University of Westminster Business School, freelance earnings have seen strong growth over the past five years. Meanwhile, average hourly rates have remained relatively stagnant for employed staff – not rising enough to provide a meaningful increase once rising living costs are taken into account. Looking at the figures, which were calculated using data from the PeoplePerHour job board, freelancers typically earn an average hourly rate of GB£20.73 (around US$27). This is 36% more than the average rate for an employed staff member in the…

When I started HomeWorkingClub a few months ago, I began a website timeline to keep track of key milestones in the development of the site. Website projects are not really suited to people who are looking for instant gratification. It takes a considerable amount of time to build traffic, outreach to other sites, and establish any kind of following. It takes longer still to establish any meaningful stream of income! HomeWorkingClub remains very much at the start of its website timeline, but there are still some achievements to be cautiously proud of. As an impatient individual, it’s sometimes down to…
