If you are a go-getter entrepreneur who wants to make a decent living by working hard for yourself, rather than for someone else, you may find yourself in a bit of a conundrum when it comes to legitimate work from home labor.
By now you are likely well aware of the issues facing your average “work from home!” website and have probably gone through page after page of scams and hoaxes.
There is nothing wrong with a learning experience but sometimes it is just better to simply cut your losses and find a way to make some extra cash without being taken on a ride.
Sure you may need access to the world wide web for the most part but the truth is building an entire website based off of what you want to do is believe it or not entirely optional.
That being said, here are five top ways (in no particular order) on how you can make money working from home with little to no internet access.
Find Your Passion
What are you passionate about?
What really drives you?
Someone once asked me “What is the first thing you think about before you go to bed and after you wake up?” If you can honestly answer these questions with no hesitation you may very well have yourself the basis for working from home.
Depending on just how many other people are interested in the subject, if you would consider yourself a bit of an expert, you could have a multitude of options to turn your passion into a paycheck.
You could start a weekly blog through a previously existing site or even just produce a single ebook to promote your knowledge.
While you could specifically focus your talents on educating beginners there is nothing to stop even veterans of your particular interest from seeing what information you could provide.
Arts and Crafts for Dollars and Cents!
One of the most beautiful things about the internet is how it connects people of like minds.
If you have a certain skill, talent, or just general knack for a certain task you may already have a built-in fan base.
Whether you are a talented writer or a have an eye for art, you could be putting your already natural aptitude to work for you. There are a variety of sites such as Etsy or even Craiglist that will allow you to list your resources.
You don’t have to waste time building your own site nor do you have to maintain it. All you have to do is focus on you and what you do best! And, if you ever feel like you want to go truly analog with your skills you will find a multitude of local coffee shops and bookstores with bulletin boards just waiting for you to post a flyer promoting yourself.

If you have a way with words and the knowledge to use them, you just might very well be on your way to be a professional consultant.
There are virtually countless individuals as well as businesses that need just a little bit of an edge over the competition. They are looking for experts, such as yourself, to lend them a hand.
You don’t have to have your own website or even do much promoting if you know what you are doing and how to do it. If you are an expert in any field and you feel like you have the know how to.
You don’t have to have your own website. Most just need some kind of landing page, YouTube Channel, Facebook Page, etc giving you a professional presence online.
If you are an expert in any field and you feel like you have the “know how” to guild others, then you’re already 10 steps in the right direction.
I know a lot of big time bloggers who are now doing nothing but consulting and they are making a killing doing it. This is definitely a great way to make money these days.
As mentioned before, blogging can be quite lucrative but it doesn’t have to burn a gaping hole in your wallet in order to maintain your own web page.
Sites such as “Tumblr” or “WordPress” are more than willing to host your blog for absolutely free. I always recommend platforms like the Wealthy Affiliate, which not only has the hosting and free sites, but they have the training and support to make money online as well.
All you have to do is supply the content and you are on your way to making money.
Of course, ideally, you are going to want some affiliate links or connect products rather than just letting your words run wild. But, if you have the skills you can easily find yourself making a decent living with even the occasional reviews.
Investments and Real Estate
Out of all of your options, this may be the most risky but also has the highest rewards.
Finding the perfect investment may not be the most simple activity in the world but if you put even a small amount down on a prime property you could find your investment return skyrocket! The key here is research and experience.
Obviously, the only way to gain experience is by doing, but if you put the right amount of research and effort you will have the experience one needs to not only make the hard investments but to teach others how to make those investments themselves! This is why investing is possibly the biggest reward.
All in All
So these are just five ways you can make a living from home without a website, but remember that these are just five. Working from home is not always easy and rarely if ever happens overnight but if you are willing to put in the time and effort you too can fulfill your dreams of supporting yourself and living your dream! Good luck and have a great day at the home office!
