I think most people are looking for ways to create a mobile income; the 9 to 5 is pretty dead, and we all know it. But finding a way out is a challenge.
If you want to worldschool, unschool, or homeschool, or just plain old travel as much as possible, you are most probably looking for an easy way to finance these things and keep you and your family together.
After I read the 4 Hour Workweek, I felt that we could not longer accept the 9 to 5 as our means of income. We were trying to figure out what to do, and were researching nonstop ways to work from home OR work as little as possible. These are some of the possibilities we have come across.
1.) Teach English online
This is a really, really good option for native English speakers, because you can teach ANYWHERE and do not need a degree to do so. As long as you are fluent in English, have skype, and are a nice person, you can do this. In general, I have seen teachers charge between 15 and 30 dollars, depending on experience.
These are the sites I have come across, and registration is free ( note: on one or two it is a pain finding the page where you register as a teacher. Keep looking on the page, as it is somewhere there, maybe down below in the fine print it says ‘teachers’ or ‘register here’.lol)
