My Beloved Women 6 | Teaching Women the 11 Most Profitable Virtual Career Options They Can Start in 2021
Welcome to the 6th lesson in the My Beloved Women Guides Series.
I am Felecia Killings, Founder and CEO of The Felecia Killings Foundation. Our mission is to help women like you build social, political, and economic empires based on Kingdom principles. In addition, my purpose is to encourage you to use your gifts to build national platforms that will impact millions.
You, Beloved, have something to offer the world; and with my training, I will teach you how to manifest your greatness in this new decade.
Each week, I share empowering lessons with women inside our virtual ministry, which helps women like you fulfill your purpose and calling. Whether you desire to write a book, build an online business, create a virtual ministry, or launch a political platform, The Foundation is here to help you manifest that goal.
In this new teaching, I discuss the shift happening in the virtual workforce. As we know, COVID has completely changed the way Americans engage socially. More than that, women are most affected by the plague economically, and millions are leaving the traditional workforce as a result.
As such, I want to provide women like you with resources that will help you increase your wealth, little by little. If you were someone negatively affected by COVID, you will find this lesson empowering. More specifically, this teaching will show you different avenues you can travel to earn steady income online.
So, whether you're a stay-at-home mother, a single parent, or a married woman looking to supplement your family's income, today's Empowering Post will give you insight that shifts your economic mindset.
Now, let's get into this lesson.
Take Inventory of Your Skill Sets
Let's begin this lesson with a preliminary statement: To be most profitable, you must know your skill sets and what you can offer the people.
When I first began my online business in 2015, I pulled upon my skill set as an effective communications expert and teacher. At the time, various organizations were establishing new online educational programs; and they were searching for former teachers who could deliver quality work.
In 2015, I received my first 5-figure contract, writing American History curriculum for Spider Learning. This was the first time I realized I could earn income online doing what I was paid to do in the traditional workforce. I used my previous work experience to secure the position. And while a shift towards virtual work proved challenging, it was the best economic decision for me at the time.
If you're struggling to find work in the traditional manner, the online space provides numerous opportunities for women like you. And I want to share 11 virtual career options that will position you for economic success.
The 5 Best Virtual Career Options for Female Writers
Now that you have your skill sets in place, let's discuss different ways you can earn substantial income working remotely.
Because The Foundation focuses a lot of attention on the written and spoken word, I'll begin this discussion by pointing you to career options for female writers.
Become an Author
In today's online market, the self-publishing industry has made it easy and possible for novice writers to become nationally-recognized authors. To be most successful, however, authors must treat their products (books) as a branch of their online brand and business. Within The Felecia Killings Foundation, we specifically work with women to get them started in this career. There are multiple books or e-books that you can create, which may focus on your story, mastering a skill, or anything useful to the market.
And with our training via our book-publishing school, LiyahAmore University, we help you put a book together while reaching millions with your message.
Become a Nationally-Recognized Blogger
Blogging is one of the hottest forms of content creation in the virtual space. Writers who enjoy constructing content on specific topics can contribute to their own blogs as often as desired. And when done correctly, a writer can earn income from their platform.
While blogging has become a popular industry for millions of new writers, very few have successfully generated income from their blog. According to recent reports, about 5-10% of today's bloggers generate full-time income from their blog.
Approximately 62% of bloggers barely make $500 consecutively with their blog. And hardly any generate $100 for the whole year.
While these numbers might depress you (sorry for that, Beloved!), there is a scientific reason for it. Bloggers who do not treat their blog as a business do not earn income.
Back in 2015, I tried my hand at blogging for the first time. It failed. Miserably.
Then in 2016, when I wrote an article about effective ways to edit one's manuscript, I acquired an $800 editing client who needed me to work on her project. That's when I realized blogging is simply a way for me to convey my expertise by giving value to the reader. And that's how I would encourage you to treat your blog should you decide to start one.
Blogging must be seen as a marketing tool rather than a place for you to tell stories randomly or to journal your life's happenings. Yes, it's possible to create a blog that focuses on you, but you need a fan base to make that platform profitable.
But if you're looking to earn ongoing income using your writing in this respect, blog about your expertise. Write articles, especially long-form articles, that provide immense value to your readers. Share your posts in different social media groups. And have a service to sell (like editing, bookkeeping, freelance writing, etc.) that readers can hire.
Intentional blogging to promote your services or products is the FASTEST way to generate wealth using a blog.
And this is another career option we offer to our clients inside our program, LiyahAmore University. If you're looking to become a thriving blogger in 2021, get the training that will set you on the right course.
Become a Content Marketing Expert
As the workforce quickly shifts to complete virtual interactions, companies are looking for content creators who can help them construct engaging materials for their prospects. Today, there are businesses like Hubspot or Story Brand that provide direct training to rising marketers.
On average, a Content Marketing Specialist can earn $62,000 a year by managing a company's content marketing department. This is a lucrative career, which can be accomplished virtually. And if you stick with this industry long enough, you can eventually form your own content marketing firm like Neil Patel's.
Become an Online English Teacher or Curriculum Creator
If you have experience working in the school systems, especially in the English Department, take your skill set to online learning communities. New programs emerge frequently, especially with the growing demand for online learning.
As I shared earlier, in 2015, Spider Learning contracted my services to help them create curriculum for their online audience. The contract paid $25,000, and it enabled me to get a fresh start for me and my daughter. I found this opportunity on Indeed. But you can also search other job boards like FlexJobs to find curriculum writing contracts.
If you find it challenging to locate a curriculum contract, there's always the option of creating your own curriculum and selling it to an audience.
For example, within The Foundation, we have an online school for authors. I developed the curriculum and sold it to new Christian Authors who wanted assistance in creating a business or ministry around their authorship.
In addition, I continuously develop new lessons on my blog and Networks for Beloveds involved in the political space. I generate income via Beloved Sponsorships or Beloved Donations, which keep the virtual ministry alive.
In like manner, you can create online curriculum for your business. But if you're going to build something of your own, give yourself time to build an audience that will remain loyal to your brand. If you need income immediately, then the best route is to find educational organizations that need content creators now.
Become a Ghostwriter or Freelance Writer
Ghostwriting is the art of constructing books or other content on behalf of an author. When I first began my online career, I wrote small books for rising entrepreneurs. The pay was small compared to what I charge today. But it was the first time I realized I could generate income simply from writing.
If you're wondering why people would hire writers to construct their works, the answer is simple. Not everyone has the skill set to communicate their thoughts to the world. Not everyone knows how to tell their story in a way that readers feel locked into their space.
Effective communication is a skill set best learned through years of practice; and some people simply do not want to purchase the training to get their ideas to the market.
As a result, they hire skilled ghostwriters or freelancers to create a product for them. And you can be one such writer.
In the coming year, The Foundation will dive more into teaching new writers how to enter the ghostwriting field, earning full-time income with just 3-5 book contracts a year. We will bring a top expert in the field -- Dennis Ross -- to show women like you how to position yourself well so publishing companies and high-profile individuals hire your writing services to complete their book projects.
So, stay tuned!
The 2 Best Virtual Career Options for Female Speakers
Now we move into a different industry that provides opportunities for women to work virtually.
The rise in video creation has developed a new pathway for women to earn income as virtual speakers. Let's dive into these two options.
Become a Virtual Minister
Virtual ministry has slowly taken off in this new decade due to the rise in COVID restrictions nationwide. Churches have moved into the online space to remain connected with their members. But not many have learned to expand their ministry so it reaches the masses.
Within The Foundation, we have taught our scholars and clients the need to bring their messages online. We encourage them to set up shop on a social media platform; deliver the message God has given to them; and establish an online congregation that will eventually support their virtual ministry via donations or other monetized services.
And you can do the same, Beloved.
Recently, The Foundation has partnered with Allen Parr Ministries, which brings weekly Bible teachings to millions of people online. Allen Parr recently released his new online training program, Creators for Christ, which teaches people how to start their online ministry. He began this journey a few years ago after realizing the leaders in his church wouldn't allow his gifts to flourish. Rather than wallowing in that defeat, he set up a YouTube channel that now has over 500K subscribers. Each week, he brings a new teaching to help Christians succeed in their walk.
And you can enroll in his empowering courses to help you build your virtual ministry while earning full-time income. (Enroll in Creators for Christ and Monetize Your Message today.)
Parr's ministry is an excellent example of what rising virtual ministers can do, starting now. While it will take time to generate full-time income from this work, getting started today means seeing vast results within 12-24 months.
If you're looking to move in this direction, I encourage you to invest in your training immediately. His courses show you how to turn that investment into a full-time career, making as much money as you desire, if you're willing to put in the work.
I trust these courses completely because I have seen the evidence of that training. And I am so excited to have The Foundation partnering with Allen Parr Ministries to get more rising virtual leaders to the forefront.
Become a YouTube Motivational Speaker
In the same way Virtual Ministers can work full-time in their online career, so can Motivational Speakers who want to reach millions each year.
YouTube provides a platform for anyone with an empowering message to grow their audience, which eventually funds that speaker's work.
If I had to start my virtual ministry again, I would probably use YouTube to make that happen. In the past, I took to Facebook to launch my work, but that platform did not provide a monetization system for me.
YouTube, however, did. And if I had Allen Parr's course back in 2016, I would have done significantly well on that platform while generating additional income for The Foundation.
So, if you have an empowering message for people, especially during these difficult times, you can create a new online career as a YouTube Motivational Speaker. Learn how to monetize your message, starting now. And continue investing in your Speaker Platform so it maintains a national or international presence.
The Best Virtual Career Option for Female Community Leaders
For many women, empowering their local communities is their calling. Whether it's to bless other women, to help their local churches, or to feed the homeless, women are building social empires that transform lives.
But with the recent lock downs, community leaders often struggle to rally people on the ground. To compensate, some community leaders and activists are mobilizing online to get equal or greater results.
One of the ways they accomplish this is by starting social media movements. This career pathway not only provides social empowerment as it relates to specific issues, but it grants the Founder an opportunity to work at her mission full-time.
Creating social media movements are quite complicated and require strategic organization. This is one pathway I've added to The Foundation's training, because we want women with such calling to have the tools needed to launch their movements on solid ground.
Through one of my empowering workshops, I teach women the strategies I used to launch our nationally-recognized movement, The Conscious Conservative Movement. Since launching in 2019, our efforts reached the heights of Washington D.C. Voices within our space were influential in delivering key insight to the Trump Administration's push for effective Black Voter Outreach.
The strength of our Movement is based on the collective work of rising leaders and established conservative voices, who each have their own brands but are working as a Body to empower communities.
And you, Beloved, can create a movement of your own that will transform lives locally, state-wide, or nationally.
Founders of Social Media Movements find unique ways to monetize their works by:
Let me add here: When creating a social media movement, it's important to do it for the right reasons. While people are willing to fund and support massive works, they should also trust that you are leading a cause worthy of their dollars. Too often, especially in the political space, people have swindled the public into donating billions of dollars to organizations that do nothing in our local communities.
You don't want your movement to have that type of reputation. So, if choosing this career pathway aligns with your calling, make sure to remain loyal to the Holy Spirit, your principles, and the people you're called to empower.
As I often teach Beloveds, continue doing things God's way and you will get His results. And as you seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, all other things -- including the finances needed to carry out His mission -- will be added to you.
The Felecia Killings Foundation is a living testament to this spiritual law.
The Best Virtual Career Option for Female Social Media Addicts
Since the spread of COVID, people have turned to social media in record numbers. New social apps are also appearing, granting new experiences for social media addicts.
If you find yourself engaging routinely on these platforms, consider a new career as a Social Media Influencer.
These individuals are skilled content creators who select certain platforms to share information that astounds a particular audience.
For example, as a Social Media Influencer, you can discuss topics related to your expertise. Are you a homeschool parent? If so, hop on Tik Tok to share video content with other mothers that will help them. Are you skilled in calligraphy? If so, hop on this same platform (or other visual ones) to share your craft with others.
As you build a loyal fan base, businesses will connect with you for sponsorship opportunities. (You can also pitch your favorite businesses to feature their products for a certain fee.)
In my case, I've leveraged Twitter to become a Social Media Influencer and Movement Shaker via my Twitter Class. I use this platform to mobilize more leaders around the cause of spreading authentic conservatism to our communities. In addition, I deliver FREE lessons to my Beloved audience to help them reach others with the empowering message.
The genius who taught me about mastering Twitter is none other than Bryan Sharpe, aka Hotep Jesus on Twitter. His empowering manual, Dominate Twitter, delivers actionable strategies to help your content reach millions each month.
Since using his techniques, my Twitter account has generated 25M impressions. Within a 12-month period, my Twitter Class Tribe grew from 300 followers to 7,000+. Sharpe's other scholars have used his resource to generate 6-figure income simply from tweeting more intentionally. And when positioning yourself as a Twitter Influencer, Sharpe helps you do so based on authenticity and originality.
Because of my daily Twitter Classes, I've established a Donor Base that helps fund the work. My Beloved Givers know not only are they investing in this work of ministry, but a portion of our funds go towards helping single mothers with groceries in our Black communities.
As an Influencer, I'm open and transparent with my audience about the funds we generate. I want them to trust the work. So, each month, I share a financial "statement" that gives them a snapshot of how much money The Foundation has raised and what we are doing with the resources.
For example, in 2020, we successfully raised $20,000, which helped The Foundation get established in our new state (Georgia). In addition, we blessed 7 single mothers with monthly food assistance while providing daily training to our Beloved members.
In 2021, our goal is to raise $100,000, which will be used to provide affordable business training to 100 women during our Women's Conference in October 2021. Funds will also go towards securing office space where we will headquarter The Foundation on the ground.
As a token of our appreciation, The Foundation provides marketing opportunities for our Donors, exclusive e-books, and VIP access to our annual events.
My work in the social media space is to ensure everyone is empowered. And because I keep my Beloveds in mind, the virtual platform increases daily.
If you want to influence people to do something great, you can take advantage of social media the right way. Give people something to hope for, something that brings them empowerment. And as more people trust your voice, they will gladly support your work financially.
The Best Virtual Career Option for Female Book Worms
Recently, I came across a blogger who loves reading books. MindJoggle shares weekly content with her readers, giving them the inside scoop on the best books to read for the year.
When I came across her blog, I noticed she monetizes her platform using ads and an online shop to sell book journals.
If you have a passion for reading books, you can create a blog like hers to share with people looking for the best of the best books.
Recently, I added a new revenue stream to The Foundation. For new authors looking to gain more exposure, we offer a sponsorship opportunity called Twitter Class Authors Blast, which brings their new works before my audience. This offer includes lifetime placement on The Foundation's website plus an author's page on our Bookstore. In addition, I engage in Twitter discussions related to their books for one hour. My tweets can be used as social proof for an author's website. And because I am an Influencer, authors gain more credibility for their works.
You can provide a similar service to the readers' market, or you can start a blog that features thousands of books. With enough blog traffic, you can generate passive income using Google Ads or other affiliate programs. It will take time to build this venture. But once your system is in place, you can create a new virtual career that lasts a lifetime.
The Best Virtual Career Option for Female Clothing Designers
Finally, the 11th virtual career option focuses on women in the fashion world.
If you've ever wanted to create your own clothing line, you can start right now with ZERO overhead. If you have a social media platform, a payment processor account (like PayPal), and a few designs, you can start selling your clothing line online.
Best of all, if you use the dropshipping business model, you can work with a third-party service provider that will complete the back-end work at no upfront cost to you.
Recently, after launching My Beloved Women's Ministry, I put my creative fashion mind to work. I've partnered with KinCustom to have my designs created and shipped to our buyers. I feature our clothing design at The Foundation's Shop, but KinCustom also offers me a page on their platform to host my online store.
If you've ever wanted to get yourself out there, I encourage you to consider opening an online boutique. To be most successful, you will need to build an addictive online brand. You will need to learn about sales funnels and paid advertisements.
In addition, you will need to learn more about customer retention and long-term success.
To help you on this journey, we have a brilliant young man in our Twitter circle, Dontez Akram, who has mastered e-commerce. His entire system has helped him generate 6-figures in 2020, and he's only in his early 20s.
This young man became a single father at age 18. When the workforce didn't provide the challenge he needed to thrive, he forged his own pathway and built a 6-figure online business selling a clothing line and durags.
In today's market, you will discover there is an audience for everything. And with the right teacher like Dontez (who also has a few online courses on e-commerce) and a network to gain support, you will be well on your way to online greatness.
If he can do it, so can you, Beloved.
Nothing is impossible to the one who believes!
In Conclusion ...
Beloved, we all experienced trying times in 2020.
But God kept us through it all. Today, we have a prime opportunity to leverage the economic outpouring if we are willing to pivot where necessary.
As I continue teaching my audience, my scholars, and clients, the virtual space is the "new frontier." You must purchase online "real estate" so you can experience the wealth offered here.
No matter what your calling is, the virtual world allows you to reach hundreds or thousands more people.
So, consider your skill set. Take inventory of your gifts. Be expressive in your creativity. And learn to monetize what you have so you prosper in the near future.
If you would like to connect with me and other women who are building social, political, and economic empires in this new decade, I encourage you to join our newest virtual work, My Beloved Women's Ministry and register for our monthly virtual summits.
At The Felecia Killings Foundation, we know how vital women are to the Kingdom of God.
We understand their role and position, and we empower them to function fully in their grace so their lives are changed for the better.
But often times, women encounter traumatic hardships that destroy their confidence, self-worth, and future calling. From domestic-violent relationships to sexual assaults, some women struggle to rebuild their lives once they've been violated.
This is not God's purpose for His daughters.
Therefore, at The Foundation, we purpose to help these women transform from the inside out. We empower them to blossom in their calling as they build social, political, and economic empires in this new decade because women are important to the Kingdom.
Since 2019, our platform and my Kingdom message has reached 40,000,000 people online.
And through this network, I help women bring their stories and message to the masses.
Our mission is to deliver spiritual insight and practical development that release healing, deliverance, and economic opportunities to our members.
As a member of our Ministry and Network, we teach women:

- Dr. Lorelle Rich
"Felecia has always been an award-winning coach. She taught me to stand up in my truth and to be okay with it. She didn't judge me. I will never forget the love and nurture that she extended to me over the years. All that she taught me is what I do in my business/ministry, sharing the same love to others to seek all that God has intended for them, according to His purpose."
- Tschanna Taylor, Best-Selling Author, Speaker & Life Coach
"Felecia does an absolutely amazing job of maintaining your vision and making it come to life. If you need help getting your vision on paper, editing of your book, or even need coaching on writing your book, she is AWESOME!"
- Bessie Scoggins
"Felecia is very talented and has several qualities that a new writer can benefit from. She has excellent communication skills and a very sensitive and supportive approach to her training. What I love most about her teaching style is her ability to listen to what you want; then she immediately develops alternative approaches to improve your manuscript. I must say, the six-month journey of creating my manuscript went smoothly because of her support and assistance. I recommend Felecia without reservation."
- Mulu Afework
"I've worked with Felecia on two projects; she helped me with writing and editing my book. As an author, finding the right editor is very important. I had my book edited by someone who didn't do my book justice. But once Felecia performed the edits, the story flowed better than I'd image. I had found the right editor. Her skills are remarkable and I highly recommend her for any project you may have, big or small. As a writing coach, I wanted to take my business to the next level. Seeking out Coach Felecia was the best decision I made. She encouraged me to develop an online school, which I'm in the process of doing. She helped me create the curriculum, identify my audience, and provided me with the tools to succeed. If you need a coach to push you to the next level, Felecia is the person. She knows her stuff."
- Paulette Harper
"I want to thank my writing coach, editor, and publisher, Felecia Killings, for her coaching style and writing skills. Felecia stayed with me throughout the entire project. She heard and understood my heart in every word written. Her encouragement was priceless but not free. Every dollar spent was well worth it! Thank you for the skills that I learned in writing this project and the projects to come."
- Betty Short-Sams
