10+ Easy Work From Home Jobs For Disabled People

If you’re living with an illness or a disability that prevents you from getting a job. And looking for an easy way to earn money from home. Then this post is for you.

Trying to provide for yourself, your family, and make money while being disabled can be tough. I understand this struggle better than anyone.

A few years ago, my mom was in an accident. While crossing the road, a bus literally ran over her. After going through several surgeries she survived but it left her disabled. She couldn’t walk or even stand.

My mom lived and worked in the UK. She provided for herself and our family here in Sri Lanka. Her accident affected all of our family.

It affected her mentality more than anything because she is an energetic person who worked with a passion. Being disabled made her powerless and unimportant. As a result, she was diagnosed with depression.

Most experienced freelancers will likely tell you not to rely on freelancing marketplaces to find work.

It’s good advice because those sites, like UpWork, pressure you to compete with other freelancers and lower your chances of landing high-paying jobs.

But, the truth is, we all have to start somewhere and the chances are even the most experienced freelancers have used a freelancing site at some point in their career to score a project or two.

The first freelancing site I used was Elance (now UpWork). I didn’t get many jobs on this platform, but I used it to connect with clients and build long-term partnerships. At the time, there wasn’t too much competition on Elance so landing a job was easier than it is today.

best freelance skills to learn

If you’re looking to switch to a better career this year, the first thing you should do is find and develop a skill.

Not just any skill but a marketable skill!

7+ Highest Paying Freelance Jobs For Earning A Steady Income

highest-paying-freelance-jobs

If you’re just starting out as a freelancer, you’ll want to get started the right way in the career path that generates the highest income, right?

Many new freelancers think that way. And it makes sense, doesn’t it?

But, it’s a lot more complicated than that. Just because a skill has a higher demand or pays well than the others doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best path to follow.

There’s a reason why some writers get paid $5 on Fiverr to write a 1000-word article while others make $100 for the same job somewhere else.

Getting paid well depends on your skill level, experience, and quality of work.

Having said that, it’s also important to know your market and see which type of jobs and skills get paid the most so that you can maybe start learning a new skill or plan for a future freelancing career.
