The outlook of the working world is ever changing and with technology at the forefront of everything and outsourcing by many companies work from home is becoming more common. Men doing remote work is on the increase.
The purchasing power of people is no longer confined to physical stores and cash only transactions resulting in thousands of opportunities for men to do work from home jobs and make a decent living by becoming a virtual worker.
No more commutes to the office, the factory, the store or wherever you work. You can now provide for yourself and your family with hard work and creative ways of earning a steady income by working online.
One thing you’ve got to remember that the internet does not discriminate in regards to age or gender when it comes to working remotely. I mean the client doesn’t even know what you look like unless you put a picture up in your profile and doesn’t really care as long as the job gets done well!
Working remotely should probably be something you should think about anyway as research has shown that certain types of jobs will disappear within the next 20 years.
Reasons for Men Wanting to Work from Home
In this current climate of uncertainty, outsourcing, part-time opportunities or reduced hours are what is being offered as permanent solutions when working for companies these days.

- Losing your job
- Wanting to do what you love

- Being your own boss

Work Ideas to Think About
Have you thought about lately how you use the internet for information? I’m sure that you regularly rely on particular websites and various vlogs for information such as the purchasing of financial products, getting reviews on technology, gaming and electrical products. Finding the latest sporting commentary on your favourite team, following training exercise programmes, the list goes on.
Now ask yourself this question, who do you think writes and vlogs on all these topics such as how to fix your carburettor” or “how to change your motherboard on your laptop”? When you called up and checked your American Express card bill was there a customer service agent at the end of the call? It could have been a man just like you sitting in his home office happily helping you with your query.
Nowadays it’s not a large company, it’s a man or woman, more than likely working from a home office. It could be a stay at home dad or mom or even a retiree, a college student and even a teenage boy in some instances (gaming) writing these articles that you read every day or, uploading the vlogs that you watch. I’m sure you’ve probably subscribed to quite a few too, right.

You can become the go-to expert on DC comics or Marvel characters, provide historical information on rock, country, or the origins of reggae music through blogs, YouTube videos, provide research for others and write content for a variety of clients and earn an extra income by doing something you love.
You could start an e-commerce store and you don’t necessarily need to have the items physically in stock where you are by learning how to do dropshipping or affiliate marketing. You can do all these things as a side hustle or as a full-time job it’s entirely up to you. Or you could provide step-by-step guides on how to give a car service with screenshots or videos.
It doesn’t matter what your current occupation is you can earn some extra money on the side by doing it from home. So if you’re a plumber you could easily provide instructional guides online with accompanying videos of you performing a number of quick fixes and make money by linking to various affiliate programs such as Amazon for the equipment or tools you use and can recommend.
As a matter of fact, I have a friend who is currently a security guard and he blogs and vlogs about the latest tech equipment and apps and he personally told me that he makes more money from his blog than he does his security job.
So you see it doesn’t matter what you do for a living as long as you have an interest in something and can inform others then you’re starting in a good place. My friend is actually the person who introduced me to the Hostinger web hosting service when I wanted to start blogging.
