How to Become a Consultant: Work From Home Idea

This post is sponsored by Diamond Links. Any opinions expressed are my own. 

There are plenty of people out there that are knowledgeable in their field.  If you think about it, We all  have an area we’re knowledgeable in or really good at that we don’t automatically think could be turned into a career. You don’t have to take my word for it though, big companies are doing it. UPMC with their “heath care concierge” for their health plan members.  I walked into a local Rite Aid a few months ago and they had a person titled a “wellness ambassador” that helps customers locate products, provide info, help customers to speak with a pharmacist, etc.  What their really doing is helping you navigate something you might night feel completely comfortable or knowledgeable about. Being the link missing to help you to the goal.

Now imagine you’re working for a big marketing firm or a magazine helping with digital market. You’re not happy there. But those skilled could easily translate into being a consultant for those that don’t have your skills. People like me…bloggers that might need help in getting their blog out there.  Small businesses that aren’t sure which type of marketing would work best for them OR don’t know where to start with digital marketing.  You can be the person that help connect people to what they need/want.

You don’t even have to have a degree. Let’s say you’re really really good at couponing. You could be a couponing consultant. Let people know how to get started. where to find coupons, etc.  Alternatively you can be there if they have questions like “Am I able to use two coupons for this product for this sale?” or “Am I able to use coupons past their expiration date at store X?”

You could easily do consultant work from home with just about any area your good at if you can find away to apply it.  For more ideas check out: how to become a consultant to really get your gears turning to get out of that 9-5 and have the freedom to work on your time.

Send Out Cards Review and #Giveaway 12/16 US–CLOSED

 RANDOM.ORG DREW NUMBER 13 MANTHAS24.  WINNER HAS BEEN SENT AN EMAIL NOTIFICATION AND HAS 48 HRS TO REPLY.

Tracey Szurley, an Independent Distributor for Send Out Cards had got in contact with me about Send Out Cards great service they provide. I had never heard of Send Out Cards until she contacted me. I went to the website directly to see what Send Out Cards was all about. My first thought was that it was another e-greeting site.  Had I run off that idea, I would have been very wrong.

Send Out Cards offers a convenient and affordable way to sent out real greeting cards.  They even offer gifts if you’d like to send a gift too.   Send Out Cards offers cards for any occasion including Holiday cards.  Just think how easy it would be to type what you want in the card, choose your font, even add pictures of your family to the card.  No trips to the post office, No worrying about running out of stamps, no running to the store to get a card.  Send Out Cards sends the card for you.  Add gifts to you cards if you like with items like brownies, bath sets and more there is lots to choose from at a reasonable price.

Tracey is donating 50 cents from each card sold from now until Dec. 25 to charity.  Also, if you are looking start your own home business with Send Out Cards, Tracey can help you with that too. 

I had the opportunity to send out a card to try the service.  It was so easy to choose a card, type in whatever I wanted to say, and send it.  I sent it to my husband as a nice little surprise love not.  The card is a quality greeting cards.  The printing turned out nice.  My husband got the mail before I got home from work.  He gave me a big hug and kiss and thanked me for the card.  I think sometimes we under estimate the impact of just sending out a card to someone for no reason at all even.  I will definitely be using Send Out Cards again in the future. This is going to be such a time saver for my holiday greeting cards this year.

You can set up an account by choosing al a carte options or by buying a package to load your account.  You can check out Tracey’s “Card R’Easy” page too for even more info.
