2021's Best Self-Employed Jobs That Require Little to No Training

Best self-employed jobs

January 14 2021 - You're thinking of changing careers or looking for ways to work for yourself. After all, if 2020 has taught us anything, it's that the future is uncertain.

While self-employed jobs tend to provide less stability, even regular jobs don't provide the security they used to.

Self-employed jobs grant you more freedom and the satisfaction of knowing that you're working for yourself. What's more, you don't need to study for years to get a good gig.

Read this article to learn about the best self-employed jobs that don't require tons of training.

Photographer

If you have a passion for photography, why not work as a freelance photographer? This job requires skills in manual digital photography and knowledge of photo editing.

Use your photography equipment to take pictures on behalf of organizations and individuals. Photographers often take on a specialty such as wildlife or wedding photography.

Writer

If you have good grammar and spelling skills, love to research and write, and can type fast, consider becoming an online writer. Writing is one of the best work from home jobs!

Write blog articles, SEO content, advertising copy, and books for your clients.

Event Planner

If organizing things comes naturally to you, and you are comfortable with people, event planning could be for you. Learn about event management and establish relationships with local vendors to get a foot in the door.

You'll manage every aspect of an event. This could be a corporate gathering or a wedding, for instance. Typically, you'll have to book a venue, coordinate catering as well as entertainment, and oversee setup and cleanup.

Social Media Specialist

Do you love social media? Are you knowledgeable about marketing? Social media specialists know how to increase social media engagement and drive traffic to their clients' websites.

They use strategies to build a following on social media platforms and boost brands and individuals.

Life Coach

Many people aren't aware that becoming a life coach is an option. This is a career for driven individuals who love to help others succeed and aren't afraid to build their own success by doing so.

You have good people skills, a strong sense of compassion, an interest in psychology, and a goal-oriented approach. You empower your clients to finally take concrete steps towards making their dreams come true.

Driver

As long as you have a clean record, a valid license, and a love for driving, you can make a living as a driver.

You'll pick up passengers at specific locations and drop them off at their destination safely and quickly. You can work for limousine services, taxicab companies, ride-share services, and even as a personal chauffeur.

Tutor

If you're great at one or more subjects, have good motivational skills, and love to mentor, consider becoming a tutor.

Tutors usually work at their students' homes, libraries, schools, or remotely via video chat software such as Skype and Zoom. They assist students in improving their academic performance.
