Don't we all This is the million $ question - now it is more and more difficult to find work from home, unless you are hired by an actual company that supports remote work, you would need talent, skill, experience, academic. I would like to say there are crowd sourcing tasks, but forget about that, now AI has taken over most tasks site, and the remaining work left is crummy - It is against rules here to mention other site names, so I won't and can't, but I can mention Appen, since it is specifically mentioned in an official topic here and they were an official supplier here, there is even a topic mentioning how to work directly with them now, so not breaking any rules. DO I recommend them, ABSOLUTELY NOT, they are allegedly near broke, and mainly negative reviews - lot of work being rejected unfairly to avoid being paid, too many negative reviews now, bad authors, unfair TQ plague the platform. There are many other crowd tasking sites, one run by a very popular ecommerce site setting online, the one that has subscription to get free shipping, yeah that, do I recommend tasks there, A BIG RESOUNDING NO, they have issues with requesters mass rejecting HITs, which brings your reputation score so low you can't work on anything else.
Stay away from crowd sourced tasks for the most part they suck, they are very unfair, you only get paid when work is reviewed, and most of the time you will get rejected without appeal and unfairly.
There are freelancer marketplaces and platforms where individuals and even reputable companies post jobs offerings for remote work - some require specific skills and experience though.
You can also exploit your talents and skills online in many other ways, some require $$$$ some not.
Skill and talent goes a long way and opens door but competition is fierce more than ever now.
If you have talents, skills, etc, especially in design, coding, web, etc, there are platforms where you can offer your services. If you have TALENT for selling and bullshitting, you can be an affiliate marketer for many brands and products, etc. A lot of opportunities exist, but easy ones are rare or virtually non existent anymore.
If you are a good writer and content producer, you can run your own blog, site, even YouTube channel - some people went from broke to wealthy by their YouTube channel. There are many examples, look at Justin Bieber he started on YouTube and now worth millions $, though in my opinion, it sure wasn't due to his skill / talent, but I guess I won't get into that - you have people (genuine) who worked hard, there is this basketball player who was good at it in high school, he quit college to do YouTube, it paid off, now worth millions. There is this guy who travels the world and posts videos........ If you have talent / skill and LOTS LOTS LOTS of LUCK and manage to get a following, you are set, but nowadays it's more and more difficult, only a fraction of a fraction of YouTubers reach that level.
Your best bet right now is finding part time work (official hire) - if you want work from home type, those will require more experience and academic - don't fall for the many SCAMS advertised on YoUTube and those bogus scam offering you receive on LinkedIn.
