Top 5 Work at Home Opportunities for 2015

2015 has officially arrived. That means it is time to look at what’s hot and what’s not this year. Here are some of the best work at home opportunities as we start the New Year.

Social Media

Business owners are frustrated with the constantly changing algorithms of social media platforms. But, they can’t give them up! If you are a savvy virtual assistant keeping up on best practices and trends, you may have more work than you can handle from small business and blogger clients.


This industry has been on the rise at a rate of 15% per year since 2000. This upswing is expected to continue into the near future as more parents and teachers turn to tutors. Tutoring is a job that can easily be done completely online through technology like online classrooms, Skype and Google Hangouts.

This work at home opportunity does not require a formal degree in most cases, but experience is preferred. There are several companies that hire online tutors. The pay isn’t stellar but benefits are sometimes available.

Health & Wellness

This industry only continues to grow as many of us strive to be healthier and avoid illness. A large sector of the population is looking to natural alternatives to chemical-laced products and home remedies to avoid the prescription drugs that come with their own long list of secondary ailments. This has opened opportunities on both sides of the work at home fence – home business and remote jobs.

Home Business Opportunities include those like Young Living which specialize in essential oils and natural wellness and home products.

Remote Jobs in the healthcare industry include medical transcription, writing, phone triage nurses and medical billing.

Customer Service

The need for quality customer service agents likely isn’t going anywhere soon. When we have a problem with a product or service, we want help and we want it now. We don’t want to wait a day or two for someone to email us back.

Lucky for us, more and more companies are turning to remote customer service agents to cut down on costs. There are some big names hiring in this industry!


The economy is picking back up, gas prices are low and we are ready to get away for a while. This is an often overlooked work from home field, but there are actually a lot of opportunities here. Once again, these opportunities are wide open to both those looking to go out on their own and those looking to work for someone else.

Carlson Wagonlit Travel is a big name in this industry and they are frequently hiring home travel agents. They offer full-time hours and benefits. If you are a self-proclaimed Disney expert, you can apply to some of the specialized agencies like Off to Neverland, Magical Memories Travel or Magical Travel.
