It's about me, but you can get all information dads with SPAGCOM, Sean alfonsocom. Today we are talking about work from home jobs. Right, you got two kids, you want to make some extra cash. Maybe your husband or wife got the full time job, you know, and and you just you just want to earn, earn a little something, something to kind of like, you know, some spending money, some vacation cash, just in case money, you know, whatever it may be, but you just want to do a little something. So we're going to talk about some of the scams, some of the opportunities out there for people who want to do a little something. Right, and and a lot of it boils down to as well, is not losing your identity. Right, not losing the person who you were before you had kids. Right, not losing that skill set, the things that you know you rock that before you had kids and getting your identity totally consumed of mother or father, because I got a lot of homies that are stay at home dads and and they go to the same struggles as a lot of women. Do you know where it's like, man, they were doctors or lawyers or engineers, you know, before they had kids and they chose to stay home and while doing so. After, you know, it's usually like it hits around like nine months, you know, like nine months to a year. That's that's when you get that itch right, you get that little itch I got to do something. Right now, the kids are on like a steady nap schedule. Things are starting to like calm down a little to you know, your kids not walking yet, so it's not that whole whole bunch of trouble that it's going to becoming once they turn one and they were running around the house. But you're getting this itch, this feeling of I want to do something, I want to do something more. Or maybe your kids like three now and and they're in child care couple days a week, you know, going doing that preschool thing, getting that edgemacation. You know, Monday's Wednesday's Fridays from nine to twelve and you're like Shit, what am I supposed to do from nine to twelve? You know, my road dog is at school, like I got to do something and I don't feel like going to that much plates. Can't do that much yoga. I don't even like working out. You know, you can only hang out as starbucks for so long. What about it? And you know the kids five years older in kindergarten. Now. Now you kind of like, okay, I don't want to go back to work full time because I want to be available for my kid in the school events and I want to be able to pick them up after school and drop them off at school. And my you know, school don't start till eight hundred and fifteen, so I wouldn't be able to get to office till nine and I got to pick my kid up at fifty five, so I'd have to leave the office. It's too was hard to find that nine to two job right. It's hard to find a boss and the corporate environment that's going to allow you to do that nine to two gig right. So what are some choices that you have? What are some choices you have as a parent? But are some things you can do, you know, to be an impactful parent, but still bring in a little extra chatter to help the family out. Or maybe at Thud, name of the family. Don't even need help out, but just give...

...yourself a little that little sense of pride, that little self of sense of like doing something. And and trust me, as a stay at home dad, I know that, like I'm the first to admit, and and that being a stay at home parent is by far the hardest job ever, by far. I don't care. I will, I will put it up against the fucking brain surgeon, right, because a brain surgeon, even if you're doing surgery on brains, you probably doing surgery for about a good hour, right, and then you get a little break, you get to Chitchat with the nurses, gets a crack jokes, you get to listen to music. When you stay at home, Pare, you got none of that. You've got none of that. Right. You basically all consumed by little people for the entire day. The entire day. You can't pick up the phone and call up one of your homies or one of your girlfriends or a family member and chop it up with them, because as soon as you like the kid could have been sitting there watching Elmo all morning long and as soon as you dial that phone, boom, they on top of it. Is like they got a sixth sense. They got a sixth sense of like, Mommy or daddy are about to do something that's going to give them some enjoyment. So they on top of you, right, and that's the way it is. You don't have those like brief moments in between phone calls, you know, like if someone works in an office and they're like, you know, on the phone constantly. They might be on the phone constantly, but as soon as they hang up that phone, they got a couple minutes to themselves. They can reflect. They can reflect about that previous phone call, they can reflect about how to day's going, they could talk with their secretaries or other co workers. When you are stay at home parent man, you rideing Solo. Think of think of this, think of putting being locked in a room with TV shows constantly playing that you don't want to hear in a person constantly tugging at your clothes, right, like that's pretty much what it is. So I feel you know, it is the hardest job, but sometimes we need a little distraction. We want a little something, something to make our brains work and other ways right. So that's what we're going to talk about today. We want to talk about work from home jobs. Now here's the most important thing. If you'd get anything out of this episode, the thing I want you to get the most is that one in sixty jobs, one in sixty. Get that number. One out of every sixty work at home jobs is actually legit. The other fifty nine are scams. So you got to watch out. There are a lot of work from home scam artists, pyramid schemes, stealing your money, getting your hopes up, leaving you in the Lurch. Jobs out there, right. So you have to do your research, you have to be prepared and you have to be careful, because you do not want to fall into one of these scam artist jobs. All right, you want the real deal. So what are some things that parents are looking for, you know, when they're looking for us a work from home job. Flexibility, right, definitely, you definitely want flexibility. But what you got to do is you got to write down a list of like the things that you're looking for. You know, what are you looking for from a work from home job? Is the flexibility. The most important thing to you is how much money you're going to make. Is that more important here? Like not, man, I need some more. You know, the the amount of money is more important to me than the flexibility. Um, how many hours are you looking to commit to this work from home job? You know? Is it like, well, I'm only going to do it when little Johnny's sleeping, you know, so that's maybe like two or three hours a day during nap times, or I'm only going to do it at night after the kids have gone to bed, you know, or are your children already starting in school? You know what I'm saying. So you're like, okay, I'm going to do it, you know, four hours a day on Monday, Wednesday Fridays, or I'm going to do it six hours a day Monday through Friday. You know, maybe I'm going to do it ten hours a day on the weekends and then a couple hours a day during the week. You need to figure it out out. You need to figure out what you want to do and how many hours a week or a day you want to throw it this work from home job, because that's going to be really important when it comes to finding the perfect work from home job for you right, because we're not talking about anybody else. Like the perfect work from home job for me is completely different than the one for you. You know there because there's some people who are like, man, you know what, I'm really an entrepreneur, I'm a businessperson. I think I'm going to like start up a couple franchises hire somebody else to run them, but...

...the systems are already and plays like. So there's so many different thing. There's people that are going to say, Hey, you know what, I am really good at quick books, so I'm going to do an accounting work from home job. There's so many things out there. But what you have to do is you got to figure out what's going to work right for you. Right, how much money do you want to make? How much time are you willing to commit to this job? And then what are the hours that you want to commit? You know, is this a Monday through Friday thing? Is this a you know, Sunday through Sunday? Is this a morning and afternoon, like really plan it out, like Hey, these are the times that I'm going to be available for whatever I want to do, right, because then I'm we're going to go through some tips on how to find a perfect work from home job for you. But before you even get to that point, you want to have your parameter straight right, because there's going to be certain things that are going to be more conducive to your requirements than other things. So so first you got to remember that only one out of every six job, sixty jobs out there that are work from home jobs, are actually legit. One out of sixty, right, so remember that. That's the most important thing to remember. One out of sixty is for real. Fifty nine of them are scams. Right. You got to make sure that you outline the days and the times and you're really specific on when you want to be available to feed your work from home career and how much money you want to make. Right. How much money do you want to make? You want to make a little bit of money do you want to make do you want this to be like income revenue stream for the family, like the family is going to live off of this? You know it's going to be like money we're going to put in the budget, like hey, this can be counted on type stuff, or is it just like hey, a little extra spending cash so I don't feel guilty if I, you know, go grab some beers with the buddies, or I go to a baseball game or I go get a manicure pedicure. You got to dictate all that stuff and kind of define how that's going to work for you. So we about to take our first break.

If you got something that you want us to talk about, feel free to hit us out. Let us know any topics that pertain to you, typically around family, faith, business, love and charity. Those are the kind of like the things that we like to talk about on this show. But if there's something else you like, out left field, you like on Yo, man, I really want to talk about ponies, like dude. Let's go. Then we could talk about some ponies. We can talk about whatever you guys want. Man, this is your show, I'm just a mouthpiece. Hit me up. Do you got any topics you guys want to talk about? So we're talking about work from home jobs. Man, what are some things you can do work from home jobs? Most important thing to remember is one out of every sixty work from home jobs advertised er actually legit. That's one out of sixty are legit. So fifty nine are bullshit. You heard me, BS. Fifty nine of these work from home jobs are BS. Don't let nobody tell you you can make tenzero dollars a month stuff and envelopes. It's not going to work, I guarantee you. Unless you got an envelope stuffing factory, there is no way you may contend's stuff and envelopes from home. Right. You'd have to stuff like a million envelopes a month to make tenzeros. Right. How the heck are you going to stuff a million envelopes? Where are you going to score a million envelopes? At Your House? Then you're like, well, sewn, they don't deliver from all at once all. I so let's say they deliver a hundred thousand envelopes. Where are you going to store at those? I bought some custom envelopes one time, right, I got and I'm like, I mean, I'm gonna do one hundred and twenty cuse the envelopes I still got, Cuz some envelopes that I haven't used. I bought these like fifteen years ago. Dude. You know how many boxes of envelopes I got for just like this? And I think, actually, I think I like five hundred custom envelopes. It was a lot of boxes, man. It takes up some garage space, just five hundred envelopes. Now you talk about thousands and thousands and going to work. Somebody tells you can make a thousand dollars a month stuff envelopes. You can't even do that. You could probably make like ten dollars a week. So that's probably like forty a month stuff and envelopes. So if you...

...look in at like bringing in an extra forty bucks a month, you know, a little movie money. The man envelope stuffing is for you. But Trust me, man, most of these are scams. member. Only one out of s actually legit find something that's going to work around the schedule that you define. Right, you figure out what you want to do, how, when you want to work, how you want to work, and you figure out how much money you want to bring in. All right. So then what you got to figure out some things that you like to do in your free time, right, because if you really like stuffing envelopes and that's like your jam and like you love that taste of envelope glue on your tongue and you get so excited when you get a paper cut, then that might be what's in it for you. You know what I'm saying. But if you're someone who likes to talk on the phone a lot and your free time, you know there's some there's some work from home jobs at that that that can specialize in that. If you like to write, you've always been like you like, oh my gosh, when I was in college, I got my liberal arts degree and I was in English major and then my mom and dad told me I had to get a real job. So, but I love to Rye and it's like my jam and I can write about anything all day long. And if someone sends me a text and they don't put the punctuation and their right spot, I call them out. If that's you, if that's like the person you are, then there are some amazing jobs for you. But find out what are the things you like to do in your free time? Do you like to work on cars? You like to fix things? Do you like to like mess around with Gizmos and gadgets? Do you like to craft? You like to build stuff? Do you like to give advice? Do you like to listen to people? Do you like, like there's so many things everybody's I like to make puzzles, like it doesn't matter what it is, it just matters what you like to do. You know, what are you? What are the things that make you happy to do in your free time? You know, because that's the important thing. Find out something that you like to do in your free time. And then another really important thing to remember, and this is probably the most important thing, because there are so many scams out there that I think that a lot of these things. That's why I had said if you got, like if you're doing some work from home stuff and your kicking ass at it, you know, hit us up, let us know. Or if you've been in a work from home thing and you kind of kicked ass in it, but then you're kind of like, well, maybe it was a scam, but maybe it wasn't, because I know somebody else is doing a really good at it and my boss was doing really good at it, but I never really made it work out for me. You know, then, this is probably going to help you out, because this is one of the other once you figure out that, like, maybe something's not a scam, it's important to your remember that your output determines your outcome. Right, your output determines your outcome. How much you put into this thing, how much effort you put out, how much enthusiasm you have toward it, is going to determine the fruits that are produced. So, if you like, okay, I'm gonna, you know, become a virtual assistant or like a customer service, virtual customer service person, right, and I want and my goal is to make a thousand dollars a month and I'm going to work three hours a day, Monday through Friday, and these are the you know, one hour chunks. But then every time you're supposed to log on and takeustomer service calls, you don't do it right or you're really crabby and the customers are never happy talking to you or you're like, Oh, I got to take a shower or all these other things come up right. So then you do it for a couple months and you're like man, I did this customer service thing and I only made like seventeen dollars. What a scam. Note I want to scam. Your output determined your outcome. You didn't do anything, so you didn't get anything. So that's really important to remember. You know, if you do one of these like multilevel sales things and that, and that's like what the route you're going to go down? You have to remember your output determine your outcome. If you're sitting at home, sitting on your butt not work in your business the five hours or ten hours a week you said that you...

...would work your business, then it's not going to work. It's not going to work right, because there's probably like four or five friends that you can get to buy into your whatever it is, energy bill or lotions or wraps or, you know, travel plans or whatever whatever. A lot of these multilevel sales things, you know, whatever it is, you probably got like a couple people that boom r out off the bat. They're like, okay, I'll do it because I love you, I'll change my electric company because I love you. But then, if you don't continue to work your business, you're not going to go nowhere. Right and you're back. Oh my gosh, that was a scam. Well, it's not necessarily a scam. You know, I know an acquaintance of mine. She does that multi level stuff and she does, like for some energy stuff do she's making money hand over fist, like mad dollars. Then I also know some other people that like did it for two months and didn't even like make a buck. They're like, I didn't get nobody. Well, because you didn't put no effort into it. Your output determined your outcome. You got to remember that. So what are some different things? So now you've determined, you're like, okay, Sean, these are the hours I want to work, this is how much money I need. You know, what are some things that I can do? What are what are some things that work for me? You know, these are the things that I like to do in life. So here you know, some different jobs out there that are legit, legit jobs, like you can legit have a revenue stream from doing this stuff from home. So first one, customer service agent. Right, customer service represented. There are so many companies out there that get phone calls every single day and they want somewhat educated, very courteous, English speaking people to immediately pick up the phone, right, because we all know it. We cannot stand automated customer service right. We can't stand it. We can't stand someone who doesn't have the same languages us. You know, the vocabulary difference. So if you're in India, they're people who need customer service in India and they want India dialect sounding people to pick up their phone. If you're in France, they want French sounding people to pick up the phone. If you're in the US, they want American sounding people to pick up the phone, which is crazy because I guess there's an America's tricky and I don't know about other parts of the world, but in America's tricky because different parts of America you got like completely different vocabularies. Like I called up customer service one time and there was like a lady picked up had like the thickest southern draw I couldn't understand a damn word she was saying right and I got like this ghetto slur. So she couldn't understand what I was saying right. She's like, is that an F or an ass? I'm like, Hey, just shut up and do it now. I'm just gonna out in tell to shut up. I wouldn't do that, but it was funny because, even though we're both American, both born and raised in the USA, we couldn't really understand each other right because I couldn't understand what she was saying. She's going to say what I was saying, but that's funny. I don't know if it's like that in other countries, but they're these global companies that want, when somebody calls for this region or this area, they want somebody from that area, that region, to pick up the phone and be like, thank you for calling Microsoft. How can I help you? Right. So that's a legit job. So if that's what you like doing, if you like talking on the phone, you like listening to people and you like helping people, Dude, that's a good that's a good job for you. You can log on when you want to log on, take calls when you want to take calls, and a job like that you'll probably make anywhere from ten to twenty dollars an hour, depending on how many calls you take, because it's all about volume, right. You get paid per call you take. So if you can help people and you can take a lot of calls, then you're going to make a lot of money. If you're like logged in but you're only answering the call every twenty minutes, you are going to make much money. Let's see, what's another one? Okay, so for all my writing friends out there, all my listeners out there who like to write, there's some great jobs out there for like. Probably writers have the most opportunity because there are so many different aspects to the writing. You know, do you want to do the writing? Do you want to edit writing? Do you want credit for your writing? Do you want to write anonymously? There's so many things that you can do. I'm to take a quick break and when I get back I'm going to talk about all all the different things that writers can do.

And you don't even have to be like a good, serious, serious writer. You can be like dabbling in the writing. Hit US up social media at your coach Shan.

Now back to Sean. Yeah, what's up? Back Dad's with swag. We talking all things work from home. Hit US up social media at your coach Shawn. Email me, Sean Shan Alfonsocom so before we took that break I was talking about writers, excuse me, and riders. Man, they got all kinds of opportunity, work from home opportunity. I there. So here's, here's. Here's the first one real quick. If you're a writer, you can get there's like all these different websites and I use them all the time, right. So the one that I use the most is called freelancer. And if you're a writer, what I do, because I'm not a writer. I cannot stand writing, can't stand it at all. So what I do is if I need something written for me, like somebody's like hey, sean, we want you to write a blog post on potty training and I want to put it on my blog, then I'm like all right, cool. So...

I will write a very, very, very, very rough, and I'm when I say very rough, I mean very, very rough, outline on potty training. I'll set it up and I've been using freelancer for so long that I got a couple people that I use all the time, right, because I've loved their work. It flows with my vocabulary. It all works out. So I'll send it over to one of them, whoever's, you know, not the busiest. I'll send it and I kind of got my favorites even out of my list. So I'll send it over to them, give them, you know, whatever their fee is, and then they'll send it back to me completely edited, perfect. I send it over to blogger. Everything's great, right, works out cool. So freelancer I love. There's also another one I like a lot called Fiver, and I use five a lot if it's like a smaller Gig, right, like I just need something, you know, a couple paragraphs, you know, under under a hundred fifty words. FIVER is really good because they'll edit like a hundred fifty words for five bucks. Right. Sometimes you'll get some people day like all up on their stuff and they'll be like, oh, I want to five verse, so that'll be ten bugs, right. But if you're a writer, man, this is perfect. Sign Up. Have a count at all these different platforms, right, because think about it, how long does it take to edit a hundred fifty word document? Like five ten minutes of your time, right, because you're a writer. That's what you do. Five ten minutes of your time. So if you're saying, say it even takes like fifteen minutes of your time and you can do four an hour, that's twenty bucks an hour right there. Right. So think about it like there's a lot of things out there that you can do and you can like, okay, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, when little Johnny's at school, I'm going to work on this writing stuff for, you know, four hours a day, and then on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when he's not in school, I'm only going to do it during nap time. So that's an hour each day, because the other nap I have to take a shower and brush my teeth, you know. So you get to like you can log on and take the jobs you want to take, don't take the jobs you don't want to take. All kinds of cool stuff. And if you're a writer, you can even take it one step further. You can become a blogger. WHOO. If you're a male listener, we can use some more dad blogs, right. I thought about creating a blog but, like I said, I'm not a writer, so it would cost me a lot of money to start a blog because I'd constantly have to be on freelancer five are getting people to write all these blog posts for me. It'd be my addition, it be my like ideas and you know, my outlines. But there's no way anybody like. I don't believe in punctuation when I write. I don't believe it. I don't believe in it. If I want you to like, take a pause in a sentence or have some opportunity to think about something, I just switched lines. I just go to the next line. I'm believe in punctuation. I don't. I just keep writing until I get to the end of the page. Right. That's it. My point, my point's done. You will never catch me doing an indent. I don't indent. No, I write. I just continue to write right, right, right, right, right, right. If I want you to take a breath, then I go to the next line or I'll leave a big gap in between words, like okay, that's the end of a thought. Here's the beginning of my next thought. Right. It's horrible. It's a horrible thank you, California Public School System, for my horrible writing ability, but I gotta. I just have to send everything to freelancer right or fiver. So I'd be. It would cost me so much money to start a dad blog. So if your dad out there and you're a writer, dude, hit me up. We'll do it together. I'll give you all a content. You do all of writing. Who We could kill it. If you're a mom out there, there are quite a few mom blogs, so you would have to come at it from a different angle. You'd have to like research all the mom blogs out there, find out what angle isn't being covered and then, boom, cover that angle with your voice. But if you're writer man, there's all kinds of cool stuff that you can do and then say you don't want to like have your own angle in your own blog. Will. You can write blogs and sell them to other bloggers, right. You can be like, Hey, you have this mom blog. Well, I have this paper, I just wrote this blog post, this three hundred word, five hundred word blog post on the best diapers to get, and I will sell you this blog post for dred and twenty five dollars so you can put this on your blog and make your blog appear better. Right. There's so many things if you're a writer, a lot of cool opportunity. Another work from home job that's not a scam is a website tester, right,...

...you, like Sean, seriously, website? That sounds like a scam, right, like we're going to pay you to test websites. But there's actually legit companies out there that, before they send their website out to the people, right, like get it live, get it going, they want people to test it. It's kind of like a Beta test, right. They want people to test it. They want people to Click on all the icons, fill out all the bubbles, like, do all the things that need to be done, and they pay. They pay like ten bucks a website. You can probably test two to three websites an hour. Does it takes a lot of time, like you have to click on every page, you have to fill out every form, you have to, you know, click on all the buttons. So it's not something that's just like, Oh, I'm going to go to www dotoever, oh yeah, that website looks like it's popping up just fine. It's not that. Like it's more in depth and you got to fill out notes. What did you like about the website? What didn't you like about the website? How did the colors on the website look? You know, was the wording. And it's funny because now that you hear me say this, you're going to start looking at websites a completely different way. Like you're going to pull up a website and it's going to be kind of hard to read the words because they're going to have like black words on a purple background, and you're like, you can't see that shit, right. You're like, they should have hired a website tester and someone could have told them you can't see purple on black. Can't even read what you're selling on your website. Right. So now that you've heard it, you're like, oh, man, Shawn, you messed up websites forever. But a website tester or an online monitor? Who are these people that monitor online forums? They're there's a lot of them that are work from home people. Right. Their job is to log into different forums, look at all the posts and make sure people writing stupid shit, make sure people ain't getting bullied or dropping fbombs or putting links to pourn up there, right. And companies invest in this because, think about it, if you have a forum on your website, like, for I have a website, a z Dadscom, and we have a forum on there. Do you know how many times since me and my buddy bend started a z Dadscom that either one of us have gone on that website and checked out the forum? Never, never, I've never done it. I know he ain't. Never done it. So it could. If we didn't have someone who monitored our forum, it would probably be filled with like links to rushing porn and you know how to make tenzero a month stuff and envelope links, right, all these links that have nothing to do with being a dad in Arizona. But we want to keep our forum nice and clean and fresh, right, so we have to have someone to monitor our forum. I'm not going to do you think I got the patients to sit there? I don't even got the patients to put in a period. How the heck am I going to put get the patients to sit there and monitor a forum? Right? And these people just log in like once a week, once every other wee can kind of just go through him. So every now and then someone might see a crazy link on our form and that's okay. It's not like they're there seven monitoring our forum. It's just every once in a while they log in check it out. If something's not cool, a delete it. Another they're good. One is a virtual assistant. Now this one is for the parent that has a little bit more time, right. So maybe your kid has already started school or they're going to school a couple days a week, right, because a virtual assistant is basically like an Admin, but it's just virtual. So your person that you work for, you know, isn't in the same city or state or whatever as you, and you reply to a bunch of their emails, you send out emails for them. You know everything that an administrative assistant would do. Maybe you handle some of their data entry, maybe you screen phone calls. So this job would be a little bit more in depth. You'd probably this isn't something that I would recommend you do if you have like a toddler that's home all day long, you know, because you might have to make phone calls, but maybe you don't. Maybe it's completely online, it's completely email and you know, stuff like that, to where you could do it with the toddler. And some of these people will be the virtual assistant for multiple people. So they'll have like six different clients that they're the virtual assistant for and each client will take about five to ten hours of work a week and a lot of the people that are using virtual assistants are, you know, laptop entrepreneurs, people that you know have these these companies that...

...they run off of their laptop and they want to, you know, be as hands off as possible. They sell products. I got some buddies that do it. You know, they sell products and you know, you order them and you get the first one for free and then, you know, you continue to buy it for, you know, the rest of your life whatever, until you cancel. But if you don't like the product, as always a hundred percent money back guarantee. So if you don't like the product, you send it back, but he's not worried about like wondering why you don't like it or whatever. They just give you your money back right automatically send it in. There's no hassle. But then when you email customer service and you're like, oh my gosh, my product this, that and the other thing, or it gave me a rash or whatever it may be, then that email will automatically go to his virtual assistant right and in his virtual assistant will be like, oh my Gosh, Mitt Smith, we're so sorry. Please enjoy these two free products for your inconvenience, right, or whatever it may be. So that's kind of like what a virtual assistant stuff does, and there's different virtual assistant jobs out there, but that is another, like good one. For you to have good virtual assistant job out there is it's legit right, it's not one of these fake ones, then the best, the best, best, best, best job out there for work from home perin is what they did prior to staying home, right, because if you loved your job prior to staying home, then that's what you should do now at your home. Right, if you were an attorney and you loved being an attorney and then you had some kids, you like, you know what, I love staying home my kids a little bit more than I love being an attorney. But now, man, I kind of miss that practicing law. I kind of Miss Keeping my brain sharp. Then figure out how can I be an attorney from home and monetize that? Maybe I write up legal briefs, maybe I just overlook you know, a pair of Leegal writes something up and then they send it to me and I look at it, or maybe I'm going to. I'm a virtual pairalegal like you could monetize anything. Right, maybe you maybe you used to be in marketing in PR when you kicked ass in it, but you're like, man, well, I can't really do that because I want to work from home.
