When working in an office, your morning commute can help you wake up and feel ready to work by the time you get to your desk. At home, however, the transition from your pillow to your computer can be much more jarring.

Another popular freelance platform is Fiverr. It’s similar to Upwork as you can get paid to do just about any task where the completed work can be delivered electronically and setting up a profile here gives you additional exposure to potential freelance clients. Fiverr gets its name from the fact the freelancers can charge $5 (or more) per gig. For select tasks, some sellers charge up to $10,000 per task. Now that’s a serious payday!
