If you need spare money over Christmas, or indeed, the winter as prices increase, there are many jobs you can do from home. Here are some of the most popular you can try this new year.

Non-Complex Cosmetics

The cosmetic treatment industry is made up of very hard-working people. And while some treatments require years of training and licensing, not all do. For example, even by taking a nail course for beginners, you can learn so much that you can begin a home-based nail business almost immediately. Or, for something just as challenging and rewarding, you can put your knowledge of hair and makeup to good use and have paying customers come to your home.

Pet Sitting Dogs and Cats

Cats and dogs are amazing pets and are loved all over the world. In the UK alone, 35% of homes have at least one dog. Yet most people also love to take holidays away from home and often can’t take the dog or cat with them. So, if you have some space and land, you can take in people’s pets when they are away. This is helpful because many kennels and pet boarding homes are pretty expensive. But if you are only taking in a couple, you don’t need a licence.

Jobs You Can Do from Home Include the Web

Not everyone has access to the internet. However, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t. And if you have access, there are many ways you can use the world wide web to make some extra cash. If you have a talent, such as writing, video editing or making music, you can use sites like Upwork to find gigs. But even if you don’t have any specific skills, you can make extra money in small amounts with online surveys, product testing and proofreading the work of others.

Massage Therapy 

The art and skill of massage are far more complex than most people realise. There are many different methods of massage, and you need to understand the physiology of the human body so as not to cause injury to a client. And you must be licensed. Therefore, it can take years to obtain. But once you do, you can use your skills and knowledge to operate a practice from your home. This will help beat rising commercial rent costs and help establish your business.

Popular Holistic Treatments

Massage is considered by many to be a holistic treatment. This means it isn’t medical in nature but is recognised to have some benefit to a patient. Of course, there are many other holistic treatments you can learn and use them to make money from home. Popular holistic treatments include acupressure, guided meditation and yoga. And if you don’t like the idea of opening your home, you can instruct some of these live or make videos for Facebook and YouTube.

Many people are turning to skilled and unskilled jobs you can do from home to make ends meet. Some examples include cosmetic treatments, web-based jobs and trending holistic treatments.
