Work from home in South Africa
Picture this: Sleeping in, going to work in your pajama, not having to worry how your hair looks, not even having to leave the house and then finishing at 2 o'clock - that surely sounds like an awesome day at work, doesn't it?
Unfortunately, most people don't have that luxury and need to wake up at the crack of dawn. Sitting in traffic for a long time and having to deal with a cranky boss when they finally arrive at work. Later finishing work after slaving for eight hours and off onto the road again, only to arrive at home tired and exhausted from the long day, with yet another couple of those ahead before the weekend starts.
Many people wish they could work from home and on top of that earn good money while doing so.
You can work from home and earn a decent amount of money. How?
Well, here are a few things that I have tried out:
Websites such as Mechanical Turk, Elance, Microworkers or Trymyui are really great to make some extra money on the side, but unless you live in the US, you will probably not be able to make your sole income by working through them.
Stay away from websites who offer you a great income working from home, where you are promised a minimal time effort and streams of money flooding in. This is either an illegal pyramid scheme or they will require you to pay money in order to have access to their database and secrets of making money online.
Ultimately, if you want to make money working from home, you will still have to work hard just like any other person. The benefits if course are plenty, like being with your children or pets all day and not having to travel. On the other hand, there might be some disadvantages, like not having colleagues to talk to.
The best option yet to work from home, is to find an actual company, which either exists in South Africa or a country that you are familiar with (have been born in or know the culture). Now a days, in the age of technology and rapid internet access, many companies resort to having people work for them remotely. It just makes business sense not having to rent expensive office space and equipment. Many foreign companies open branches in South Africa to forgo the high minimum wage requirements and rocketing employment taxes in their countries.
Whatever you decide to do, be it working from home or being office based, you will need to work hard in order to make a good income.

Working Monday to Friday for 6 hours a day, that means you'll need to do 5 tests an hour. This can easily be done, as one test takes between 10 - 15 minutes at a time.
