Do you sometimes feel as if all your skills have gone out of date? In this fast-moving world, it’s an understandable feeling. However, it’s also true to say that there’s really no excuse not to do something about it. Imagine your resumé being enhanced with a fresh new certification from Google or IBM…Well, that could be a reality in just a few short months. We review lots of different courses and training websites at HomeWorkingClub. Something that’s come onto our radar recently is a new range of courses, linked to big tech firms and universities. They’re called Coursera Professional Certificates.…

I find it rather scary to think that we’re already well past the half-way point of 2019. It doesn’t feel like that long since I was putting up the Christmas decorations! It’s been an interesting and challenging year, and one that’s taught me that however long you’ve been freelancing, there are still big lessons to learn and lots of ways to improve and refine what you do. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to put together a little list of the realisations I’ve had so far this year. In truth, several of them could fit into…

I’m a big fan of Tailwind, and a paying subscriber. I originally purchased Tailwind to manage posts on Pinterest, and make use of Tailwind Tribes. I also like that Tailwind for Instagram lets me schedule posts in advance – complete with effective hashtags – thanks to its hashtag finder. I should probably admit, at this stage, that my personal efforts to commit to using Instagram seem to come in fits and starts – but that’s another story, and nothing to do with Tailwind! Anyway, I recently found out that there are some new features in Tailwind for Instagram that will…

When I started HomeWorkingClub in 2017, I knew my idea wasn’t especially original. After all, there are already thousands of websites about freelancing, home working and making money online. I did, however, have a clear vision. I wanted to make a home working website that was BETTER. Most of all, I wanted to make one that was HONEST. To be clear, I’m not criticising every other site in this industry – but I am criticising a lot of them. The home working world is a minefield of scams, hidden agendas and unrealistic promises. The victims are the people who are…

If there’s one thing guaranteed to get the jungle drums banging in the world of freelancing, it’s a change to Upwork fees for freelancers. A BIG change to the fees, which will force all Upwork freelancers to pay for “Upwork Connects” in order to bid for jobs, was announced in April 2019. This article explains all of the key Upwork fees for freelancers. It looks at the 2019 changes (which are proving extremely controversial) and discusses how much freelancers have to pay for Upwork Connects. I also potentially add to the controversy by giving my own opinion on Upwork’s fees…

Many people arrive at this site looking for ways to make some extra money. It’s well worth checking out the thousands of temporary census jobs being offered across the US. These jobs, which are on offer right now and include census taker positions, involve providing support for the forthcoming census of 2020. I was kindly alerted to these jobs by a HomeWorkingClub reader (thank you!) This post describes how these census jobs work, what they pay, and how to apply. Census work is completely legitimate, and pays upwards of around US$15 per hour. There are opportunities in all US states, and in…

I can’t quite believe I’m writing HomeWorkingClub’s final post of 2018! However, I’m really excited to share some plans for 2019. They’re all designed to help home workers and freelancers thrive – into next year and beyond. The site has come on leaps and bounds since its inception. I keep seeing pleasing statistics, including rising monthly visitor numbers and positive metrics around how long people stay on the site. In less than two years, HomeWorkingClub has gone from helping hundreds of people each week to helping thousands each day. A definite highlight of 2018 was reading positive responses to the survey we…

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,…

A couple of months ago, I asked members of the HomeWorkingClub mailing list to complete a survey. I was keen to gather some feedback on the website, and to seek opinions on future plans. If you were one of the many who completed the survey, then I’d like to express a huge “thank you.” This kind of feedback gives me the best possible data to take HomeWorkingClub forward. It also means I can continue to produce the kind of content that readers actually want. That way everybody wins! Ploughing through the survey results was one of the main objectives for my “working…
