90+ Non-Phone Work from Home Jobs & Side Gigs Open Now




By Mike Haaren, Co-Founder Rat Race Rebellion

Phone-based work isn’t for everyone. Maybe you have chatty kids, or maybe your neighbor has a chatty dog. Maybe the whole reason you chose to work from home was so you wouldn’t have to talk to people all day. Maybe your home office also happens to be your bedroom, and you have a spouse who works nights and rattles the windows with his thunderous snoring.

So we’ve put together a screened list of work from home jobs and side hustles that aren’t phone-centric. And most of them don’t have state hiring restrictions or require college. Enjoy, and don’t forget to share with your friends! (This post includes a few screened affiliate links to help us keep the computers running. Thank you!)
