When it comes to being a loner and having an introverted personality, the job market is much smaller than usual. So what is the best job for loners? Well, I know there isn’t a “one size fits all” job out there, but from my personal experience I can tell you one job in particular that fits the loner personality perfectly.
Being a loner myself I was never the cool kid, I was never the one to go to parties, have parties, hang out with friends much, or anything like that. I enjoyed staying home, being alone, and carving out a path for myself in life that would fit in place with my introverted personality.
It took me a while to find that one job that I really like. That one job that fit the description I was looking for. That one job that would allow me to keep my introverted personality and also make good money at the same time. But I found it now and that is all old news.
A Little Info On Me
Like the many other loners out there. I never seemed to fit in and I never really seemed to know what I wanted to do in life. Every career path that I looked into just didn’t fit who I was.
So what did I do? Well… I ended up going to college for a Criminal Justice degree just for the heck of it. I did it because I felt I had to. But that degree will never be any use because what I do now doesn’t require a college degree.
All throughout college I thought to myself… It will come to me, it will come to me.. thinking that I would somehow come across a job that I wanted to pursue. But that never happened. I graduated college with a Bachelor’s degree and instead of getting a job with it, I just went back to working at a golf course I had worked at while in college.
It was while working at that golf course that I took to the internet and began searching for jobs that actually fit my personality, not traditional jobs that a college degree would lead to.
What Is It That I Do? And Why I Think It Is an Amazing Job for Loners?
I make a living working online… and specifically working online for myself.
Just take a second and think about how well that fits the loner personality.
- No direct contact with other humans
Yep… fits the ticket as far as I see.
But there are a lot of online jobs out there. There are chat jobs, customer service jobs, tutoring jobs, marketing jobs… and the list goes on and on and on. And not all online jobs would be a good fit for a loner. Personally I wouldn’t like doing customer service much at all, there is just way too much talking, although it is easier talking over a microphone than person to person.
But like I said, I work for myself. And what I do online is promote products and get paid commissions for doing so.
What a lot of people are unaware of is that you can promote products for big companies like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Apple, etc, online and get paid commissions when you help make a sale.
You don’t need any degree or anything to do this and there is no interview or anything of that nature. Its pretty much you just sign up for Amazon’s (or whoever’s) affiliate program and you can start promoting and earning money.
How It Works
The most common, and best way of doing this is by creating your own website. It is difficult like it may seem. I have several simple blog-style websites where I promote products.
You can also promote as an affiliate on social media but unless you have a big following or something like that you probably won’t make much, if anything.
When you have your own website it is also better because it is completely yours. You have control of it and can customize it how you want to, promote anything you want, etc. You own it.
I know it may sound like a money pit, having to create a website and pay for everything you need, but there is actually a place where you can get 2 free websites that I’ll go over soon.
Why Its Great For Me & Other Loners
I never have to talk to anyone directly. I means sure, I will get people that comment on my website but I’m just talking over a computer with this. There is no direct contact. There is no calling or anything like this. The fact that there is basically no contact with anyone else is a great thing.
Another good thing about it is that you don’t have to go anywhere. You don’t have to get up and drive to work and deal with people in the office, you can just work from home if you want… or anywhere that has internet really.
Its one of the perfect jobs for loners and I’m so glad I came across it when I did… or else I might have ended up with some job that I hate.
Best Way To Get Started
Remember how I mentioned there was a place where you can get 2 free websites to start your affiliate marketing business? The place I am talking about is called Wealthy Affiliate and they provide a lot more than just the websites. They also provide training and other tools for beginners to get started with affiliate marketing.
This is where I got started back in 2015 and I am actually still a member of Wealthy Affiliate today… that should tell you how good I think this place is. There is no better place to learn this in my opinion.
On of the great things about it is that they offer a free membership so that you can get started without spending a penny. I already wrote full review of Wealthy Affiliate that you can read here if you are interested in learning more.
