Why I Quit My Job and Working From Home Making Money Online As Data Entry

I work as a retail sales associate. It's the only thing I know how to be, since I started when I was a teen. As most people know, retail hours are extremely taxing, and I'm not getting any younger, so lately I've been cutting back my hours and trying to rest at home whenever possible.

But less work means less income, and it's starting to take a toll on my bank account. My boss suggested putting me back on the schedule more, but just the thought of standing up for hours on end, more than 3 days a week, makes my back want to ache even further.

I started thinking about alternatives. After all, I've been in the retail line for more than 10 years now, and I found myself constantly envying the people decked in office attire looking busy and important. I wanted to be able to sit down all day and go home at dinner time. Working retail often led me to shifts that ended at ungodly hours, and usually by then I'd be too tired to eat or socialize with friends and family. If anyone's still awake to socialize with, that is.

Too bad I don't have any qualifications to work a desk job, I always thought to myself. I wouldn't mind a fixed schedule that allowed me to hang out with people I cared about on weekends! However, I convinced myself it was a futile dream as I felt that I was too old to start going for courses that could help me land a desk job. And then I stumbled upon Data Dollars Pro when I was looking online for alternative options to complement my measly retail salary.

My only regret is that I didn't discover it sooner! It opened up a whole new world of opportunities that I never knew was available to me. The words "data entry" weren't even in my dictionary before this book came along. After reading through the first few chapters, I was hooked. I knew that this was what I'd been searching for.

Doing data entry from home allowed me to rest at home without being on my feet for hours. I didn't need to handle difficult customers, count piles of loose change repeatedly, or deal with my coworkers' endless chattering. I just wake up, have some lunch, plop myself in front of the computer, and type away.

At first I was apprehensive as I didn't have much experience with computers and typing. I figured data entry would require lots of fast typing and technology expertise. But the book taught me all that! I didn't really need much to get started, actually. The book even details how to set up a good online profile that would stand out to clients, and it even has lessons and practices on how to improve my typing speed. I've gone from a mere 50 words per minute to 65 now! And I'm aiming to go even higher.

And of course, if retail jobs cause my back and feet to ache, I figured typing jobs would cause my neck and hands to ache as well, due to the sitting position. Which is why I love the fact that the book also provides tips on preventing those aches from setting in! It even covers finger exercises so that you don't develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

I wanted to still keep my retail job as I could do this part-time, but after a while of doing data entry and transcribing work, I've decided to go into this full-time. It's pretty lucrative if you know where to look, and Data Dollars Pro really does tell me exactly where and HOW to look. I've never had this much job satisfaction in my life, as I now have time and energy to do whatever I want without any restrictions. My backaches are gone because I can get up for a good stretch any time I want, and my purse strings are much looser than when I was stuck in that tiring retail job. I don't even envy those office ladies who have to stick to a 9-to-5 schedule anymore—I'm never going back to a conventional job ever again!

How I Quit My 9 - 5 Jobs and Work From Home Doing Data Entry

Ever since I stepped into the working world, I haven't had an ounce of peace in my life. Job after job came attached with demanding bosses, gossipy colleagues, and I hated wearing office attire. That was one of the things I dreaded most, actually. I disliked the feeling of wearing a work shirt with long sleeves, making me sweat easily and let's not even mention the pants—they're so restrictive they might as well be part of a straitjacket. Loose ones make me look unprofessional; fitting ones make me feel suffocated. There was no way to win for me.

It sounds like a small thing, but when combined with the fact that my colleagues and bosses were wretched beings to work with, I honestly hated my adult working life. But I liked my desk job. Unlike many other colleagues of mine, I didn't mind sitting in front of my computer and doing tasks that required discipline and not much thought. I saved the creativity for after-work activities when I went out with friends or went to the movies—recreational stuff. The 9-to-5 wasn't so bad; it was the everything else involved that threatened to make me quit and look for something else without office politics.

Then one day I was complaining about my job yet again to my sister, and she asked me, "Why don't you just work from home? It's still about sitting in front of a computer, just without those colleagues gossiping around you." I was so shocked that it didn't occur to me earlier. My sister then continued on to tell me that her husband had just recently started working from home thanks to a book called Data Dollars Pro, and was earning a decent amount of income to support the family.

After talking to my brother-in-law about his earnings, I was sold. I bought the book and with it came the solution I had been looking for all along. It was about working from the comfort of my own home, without all the restrictions of an office environment. I didn't have to contend with noisy colleagues, nor my unreasonable boss, and best of all, I didn't have to put on a tie and proper shoes and could just work in the clothes that I woke up in! To me, that alone was enough reason to quit my job at the office. Of course, I had some savings to back me up for emergencies.

But it turned out I didn't really need to have backup savings. The book was so easy to understand and implement that I got my first job offers within a few days. Granted, they weren't much, as I had no experience in data entry, but my many years in an office environment helped as I didn't need any major adjustments to working at home. In fact, I felt it much easier and more relaxing to get up at my usual timing, but being able to sit down and eating a hearty breakfast without rushing off to the office. I could just saunter over to my home computer with a coffee cup in hand, and start working whenever I felt like it.

I started out filling in basic forms and information as needed by my clients online, and when I had a steady stream of income from recurring customers, I branched out to bigger projects such as transcriptions, surveys, and even things like customer complaints. These kept my work interesting—even my old desk job wasn't as varied! As the workload increased, I wanted to work faster and more efficiently. Again I went back to Data Dollars Pro, because they had an Accelerator program that could boost my typing speed and allow me to produce accurate work at a faster rate. How awesome is that!? I felt like Superman watching my fingers fly all over the keyboard and have no mistakes appear on the screen.

Soon I was submitting my work earlier than expected, and many clients started to trust me with even bigger projects such as legal documents and sometimes even writing projects! I could earn thousands of dollars by just completing one project. This allowed me to take time off whenever I wanted a break, and I bought some nice things for my family—especially my sister and her husband, because they helped me so much by introducing me to Data Dollars Pro.

I no longer dread waking up in the mornings, and I finally have the freedom to do what I like, without being confined by the things I DON'T like. Basically, I'm enjoying the best of both worlds. Who would've thought I'd get so lucky with just a book?
