Working from home can be a great alternative for those who are shy, timid, or reserved. This subject hits close to home because I tend to lean towards the shy side and have a couple of people in my family that struggles with shyness also. Maybe you do too and if that is the case, please be assured that you are not alone and there are some work-at-home jobs for shy people that you can apply to online.
The kind of jobs that I am going to present will not put you out of your comfort zone or cause you undue stress. Some examples could include the following below:
- Sell anything
- Solicit funds
- Ask personal questions
- Collect late payments
- Meet quotas
- Make outbound calls
- Set appointments
Please feel free to browse this website including the weekly job section or Friday freebie pages for additional companies hiring remote workers and select and apply to those jobs you are more comfortable with.
