Thumbs up Contractor with PsychicWorld (was great!)

I see I forgot to place the link in my previous post. If you want put your hobby with Crystals, Tarot or Astrology to good use you can work on sites like Keen, California Psychics or PsychicWorld. I have a great experience with the later, they payout weekly and offer great (better than the other two) rates! You can apply directly to get access to their psychic chat here, or simply fill in the contact form, psychicworld.com/contact I recommend you try it!

I love being a mom but we have help at home twice a week for cleaning and I had a lot of free time on my hands, even after exercising and letting tje dogs out. I applied with some reserve to several websites who offer online Tarot readings, but it's been 3 years now and I love it. I make nice income on the side and it keeps me busy! If you have any experience with Tarot, Oracle cards or Angel cards and you know how to interpret cards and signs then you can share your passion and knowledge online and earn a living! It's amazing. I moved to the US following my husband but I am originally from Holland. This business has been going so well for me that after working on PsychicWorld for 18 month I I launched my own website in my mother language called Paravisie. You can check it out and tell me what you think. Launching your own site is another story I must say. It also requires A LOOOOT of dedication. But you can start by working on a site and see if it's anything for you before actually starting your own website. Feel free to contact me if you need anymore tips!

I have been working online (full-time) for about four and a half years. All of my work from home jobs (transcription, data entry, search engine evaluation, and market research) have been as Independent Contractors. I haven't actually come across a company hiring online workers as actual employees. You might check some companies that hire telecommute customer service workers. Some of those jobs might be W-2 employment opportunities.

However, you are right that being an independent contractor is a bit scary when it comes to taxes. You have to remember that Independent Contractors end up paying higher payroll (Self-Employment) taxes, because we have to pay both the employee and employer portion of Social Security and Medicare taxes. That comes out to about 15.3% of net earnings. In addition to SE tax, we still have to pay regular federal and state income taxes.

In short, you should study up on the tax issue if you decide to become an independent contractor.

Hi, I wouldn't be terrified of the taxes if that is all you are worried about. Takes a little to learn but totally doable. The most important part is to save about 30-35% (maybe less depending on income level) and pay quarterly. It can actually be a benefit when it comes to saving for retirement because you have other options like a solo 401k. Many benefits to 1099 income.
