No Experience Work At Home – Is It Possible?

work from home

To address the question if it’s possible, Yes you can with no experience work at home, and do so from a computer.

Here’s what I’m NOT going to do:

  1. Have you join a bunch of survey sites (not my cup of tea)
  2. Tell you to start a t-shirt business
  3. Ask you to try and take high-quality photos, and sell them online
  4. Tell you that you will make your first $10,000 in weeks (not reality)

I’ve been able to work from home full-time for the past 6 months while only getting started a year ago. When I started, I had no experience.

Aside from taking surveys, I literally have never done anything listed above nor have I ever applied to or had an online “job”;

That’s why I’m not going to recommend them here.

Instead, we’ll look at options for starting an online business and how you can get started today, for free.

No Experience Work At Home

There’s a few things I would like to go over before getting into your different options for starting a business and working from home.

Note: Don’t let the word ‘business’ intimidate you. If you would have told me 13 months ago that I would be running my own website(s) from home – I would have burst into laughter. Yet here we are.

There is nothing wrong with having your own t-shirt business, selling photos, or even taking surveys online. I believe you can excel in any business or area you put your mind to and work hard at.

But when it comes to survey taking for example, I used to spend too much time answering tedious questions and would recieve very little in return.

Some people enjoy the convenience and simplicity of survey taking, and that’s fine.

Just realize there are better ways where your time could be spent, like starting a business that generates income for you even while you’re away from the computer.

Finding Jobs Online

Finding jobs online can be difficult. Finding a job period can be difficult.

Believe me, I know how it is.

I had a lady contact me just yesterday mentioning how the “doors closed” for a business she had been with after 8 years. It’s tough.

She was interested in finding something worthwhile but was having troubles doing so, this I understand too because you constantly run into BS like this:

no experience work from home

Or even:

no experience work from home

That would be nice – if it were real!

The truth is many of these so-called “opportunities” to make money, such as the statements above, are completely false and their only intentions are to part you away from your money.

There are legitimate opportunities out there that will teach you how to make money online but always do your due diligence to avoid buying into a get-rich-quick scheme like shown in the pictures above.

Earning money regardless if you’re on the internet or not, requires work.

When you come across places claiming it can be done with a “simple push of a button” or the “90% done for you businesses” – run the opposite way.

In other words, there are no shortcuts…

Starting A Business With No Experience

If your heart is set on finding a job online, where you can apply and work for a company, try checking out places like or and browse around.

Just like I told the young lady who contacted me yesterday with her struggles of finding work online – starting a legitimate business from scratch takes time.

There’s no way around this.

How long does it take to earn money?

  • May depend on your chosen business topic..
  • Depends on your ability to follow step-by-step training, and apply what’s being taught (I’m going to share awesome training with you)..
  • Are you taking action on your business? And how often..
  • Some methods may work quicker than others..

There are many factors involved for when and if you make money by starting an online business, but speaking from personal experience I know that anyone can do it.

I just believe it’s best to be in a good place financially before pursuing a business of any sort. IMO.

Before getting too far ahead here, the first step would be to consider which kind of business to start: Here are your 6 Best Options For Starting An Online Business.

I suggest reading that over if you haven’t already.

Regardless of which business model you decide to take on, the next step would be selecting what your business will be about.

    Hey Jason,
    I like that you did this post to show that people can really make money at home, but they have to put in the work. I completely agree with you that success is not going to happen over night and that you have to put in the work and effort to get rewarded. There are many scams out their that tell people that they can make millions of dollars by tomorrow and that is not true. Thank you for being honest and saying that their are no shortcuts to success.

      Jason - 6 years ago

      Don’t mention it Emmanuel.

      Make money at home or in any profession will require work – there’s no way around this.

      People tend to fall for the fallacy that money could be made magically online for some reason (the many scam sites perhaps). It’s really not that complicated however, just need to follow good training if you don’t know where to start and be prepared to do the work.

      People will be much better off keeping this in mind!

      Thanks for commenting.

    Jason - 6 years ago

    No experience necessary! Although to some people that may sound too good to be true, it’s quite possible to start with nothing, and then make a great living once you get the ball rolling.

    I for one didn’t know anything before I started. Now, I’m just about an expert in regards to affiliate marketing.

    Thank you for posting this, it’s very informational. Starting something from scratch is not always that easy. Just working hard, and keep hitting those goals is what will make you succeed. Vision has always been very important to me though, I always like to visualize how I want things to be or happen, then start making plans accordingly to make it manifest into reality.

      Jason - 6 years ago

      Agreed Victor, visually positioning yourself to where you want to be is a great approach to achieving your goals…

      Starting something from scratch or taking on something new and different, such as starting an online business, is not always the “easiest” thing to do.

      But it is a wonderful option for those looking for something different in life, to earn extra money, or even replace their current income.

      The answer is never to sit around and wait however.

    Pete - 6 years ago

    I’ve always wanted to work for myself and not have to rely on someone else to give me a job, so I’m always interested to learn about ways to achieve that goal.

    I’m still kind of doubtful that it’s really possible. How exactly do I earn money online? I don’t really have anything I can sell. I also don’t have a whole lot of money to put into this right now.

      Jason - 6 years ago

      Hey Pete, I too didn’t have anything to sell that I owned and not much money to get started.

      With some effort and dedication, anything is possible – but nothing will ever fall into your lap.

      If your truly interested in learning more, I suggest you check out these Steps for Starting an Online Business. In it you will be able to read over your 6 best options for starting an internet business and eventually earning income online.

      Let me know if you have any further questions 🙂

    Hi there, thank for this article, I have been thinking to make business online too, before this I used to fill in surveys for money online but the return is very low and I think it is a waste of time.

    I am intrigued by what you have in store, I just wish it will not wasting my time like surveys did. Again, thanks in advanced!

      Jason - 5 years ago

      You’re welcome, A Habil!
