To find out more about Agile Work and what it is, clicky here.

this list is growing and inspired by the big list of residual income

B - Has Market Nearby, But not broadband
C - Have access to nationwide shipping, but not fast internet or broadband

A00 - permies marketing affiliate
A01 - data entry

B02 - Upcycling / Appliances (Chest Freezer to Truck Bed Tool Storage/BlackSoldier Fly breeding bin/ Larder for root crop storage)

C01 - Foraging - Seed collection, sell online, ship wholesale or retail (wild carrot seed has nationwide demand as contraceptive)

Should the list be segregated by constraints?

Example

1) Has broadband
2) Close to town with a market
3) Boondocks without market or broadband (but with UPS)

Maybe I'm all mixed up about what agile work is but I'm thinking:
Teaching (one on one, small courses online, etc)
Consulting (health coaching, pneumatic conveying, etc)
Engineering (any kind that is primarily doable via the interweb)
Designing (web pages, ad copy, GUIs [if that's still a thing], etc)
Writing
Editing
Advertising (maybe?)

I like Mike Jay's list. I think they all could be in either the A or the B category - remote or in person.

I'd add to either A or B:

Bookkeeping
Accounting
Trainer (as in physical fitness)
Physical Therapist
Insurance Agent

when I was doing farmers markets the state would send lots of stuff about creating value added productsthe kind of things to do to add value to your products like instead of selling just baskets of blackberries to make preserves out of some and sell canned/bottled preserves. that kind of thing to make additional products out of what you grow. like making and selling blueberry muffins in addition to selling just blueberries.

making walnut oil from wild black walnuts, you get the idea.
just $0.02 from an old phart
