Below are the items you need to start working from home:
1. Have the RIGHT Mindset
Believe it or not, thisis directly proportion to your success in earning online. The earlier you have this, the better. The more you have this, the greater you will be.
There are a lot of people who approaches me and inform me that they want to earn online. Some of them asks what’s the easiest job to take. Some also say that they are tired of the 8am-5pm routine. Also, most of them say they hate their boss, the work environment and the heavy traffic jam they have to survive every single day of their workweek.

Skills can be easily acquired. Hence, work on getting the right mindset first.
Anyway, here are the other items you need:
1. PC/Laptop System Requirements
Dual Core Processor or higher, 2GB of Memory (RAM) or higher
2. Fast Internet connection
When we say fast, it is not 1mbps. It should be more than that. Ask your neighbor if they have DSL and if their connection is fast and reliable. A back up internet is a plus (not a must, YET).
3. Bank account linked to Paypal
Other Employers require you to have a specific Savings Account for wire transfer. But having a Visa/Mastercard linked to Paypal is the COMMON mode of payment.

I heard there are cards from some bank you can also link with Paypal, kindly do some research first before deciding on what bank and card you want to use with your Paypal.
4. List all the skills you have.
You will need this in your profile and you will need this to determine which niche you want to focus on. This site is helpful, 1000 Ways to Use a Filipino VA on listing your skills.
5. Open an Odesk, Elance and/or Freelancer account.
