Imagine getting paid when someone turns on a light, takes a shower, cooks, uses a phone, internet, watches television, monitors their home security or swipes a credit/debit card. By marketing essential services you provide customers with services that they are already spending money on everyday. ACN is a low cost, home based business opportunity that allows you to work part time, supplementing your income or working full time to build a global enterprise!
While this isn’t exactly a long-term solution for making money (since you have to pay it back), it is a reliable way to get some extra cash when you’re in a pinch. It’s also a great way to make money by saving money if you use a personal loan to pay off high-interest debt, such as credit cards. Since getting a loan is one of the easiest ways to make extra money, we felt we had to include it.
In the freelance writing gigs, it appears about.com is gone (gasp!) it links to a site called dotdash.com. I tried going to about.com myself to make sure it wasn’t a bad link and sure enough it took me to dotdash.com. In their careers section they are currently hiring some freelance (contract) tech writers but that was the only “freelance”/contract position(s) they have. Thought you’d like to know.

Years ago, I joined Epinions and wrote reviews of products I liked. The model was simple – write a review, get paid a little for every pageview and every commissionable sale the review generated. It was a fun little foray into the Internet and getting paid to write about a product seemed fun. Epinions was later acquired by eBay and shuttered in 2014.
Most people do not claim all of the allowances they are allowed to take, which is why they end up getting a large refund check each spring. If you regularly get a large refund, then it may be time for you to file a new W-4 with your human resources department. Your new W-4 should reflect the proper number of withholding allowances you are eligible to take.

If you find you’re suddenly unemployed or at home with your children all day or even just looking for some side income, starting your own home-based business can seem like the perfect choice. But it can also be overwhelming. Since grabbing a part-time job more than likely doesn’t fit with your schedule or your needs, is it really possible to start a home business and make money?

It’s not exactly a way to make consistent great money, but housesitting—exactly what it sounds like—is a fantastically easy business idea that can fund your ability to live in exciting locales around the world (or your city) without paying a dime in rent. Did I mention it’s a way to travel and live rent free? Here’s a list of four great websites from the legendary Nomadic Matt, to start your housesitting side business idea search.
Entrepreneurs abound in New York, where small businesses make up 98% of all state businesses, according to the state’s Empire State Development. And U.S. Census Bureau data show revenue for New York-based businesses is high — over $1.1 million a year on average — so NerdWallet took a closer look at which places in the state are the best for starting a business.

But be wary. Food service—even a delivery service, which is the most likely scenario for home bakers, as opposed to setting up a storefront—comes with built-in risks. Prepare yourself, and read up on your local insurance requirements. And don’t be afraid to start out by making just one or two really great treats. Consistency is more important than variety in the baking business.

You love dogs? You’re good at taking care of them? You want to open a dog-boarding business? Just make sure you’re prepared. Sure, it’s a great opportunity, and it’s totally doable—with some planning. Make sure you know your local zoning laws and, perhaps more importantly, make sure your neighbors would be OK with some extra noise and activity around your place.
This can either be done locally or through an online service like Fiverr. Resumes are something that people can be very insecure and self-conscious about, which means there is always a demand for services that will help spruce them up. Holly Hanna from The Work at Home Woman wrote a really useful article on How to Make Money from Home with Resume Writing.
Cash 4 Books is an online business where you can sell new and used books. Grab your books and head to the website; here you’ll be able to enter each book’s ISBN, which is a 10 or 13 digit number that can be found on the back cover or inside the front cover of almost all books. Once you have entered each code, you’ll receive a quote for each book. Next, send your books in with a pre-paid shipping label. Once they receive your books, you’ll be paid either via check or PayPal.
Decluttr lets you sell everything from books to CDS to DVDs to electronics and even LEGO! It's my best recommendation for decluttering (hence the name!) by selling stuff you no longer want or need. With books, you just enter in the barcode or ISBN and they'll give you a value. It takes minutes to find out how much your stuff is worth and you don't have to register or anything to price things.
"I grew up in a family of 11 kids and spent a lot of time in the kitchen. We were always eating! I then moved to America, met my husband, and his food tastes and family background were completely different from mine. I learned to make food that meshed the two different styles of Korean cooking and after I had my two kids, my cooking evolved even further to incorporate new flavors and tastes as we started eating more American food. My husband and I worked very hard 7 days a week doing every job that came our way so that we could support our family, but every night, we looked forward to our family meals at home. Food is a big part of our lives and that is why I think my son became such a famous chef! Our friends and family felt comfortable in our house and were over all the time, and I was always feeding everyone! It was inspiring to see everyone enjoying my food, and that gave me the energy to work harder to develop my special sauces!"

During my high school days, I was a pretty decent golfer (about a 2-3 handicap, for you other golfers out there). I was asked by my local club professional if I would help him teach his junior golf clinics that summer. If you have specialized skill in any sport, there are definitely opportunities out there for teaching others the fundamentals (and getting paid).

Almost everyone has bought or sold something on eBay, but have you ever thought of making a business out of it? Becoming an eBay seller requires very little in the way of capitol investment. If you have a digital camera and blocks of time (when kids are in school) available to list, ship, and hunt down things to sell (garage sales for example), you're good to go.
On the other hand, people who are introverted, and prefer a minimal level of interaction with others would probably enjoy data entry. The solid sense of meeting your self-set goals—whether task-based or financially-oriented—can be enough to fill someone with pride. And finding an organization that is rich in rewards and recognition will benefit anyone hoping for a sense of accomplishment. The key to a successful home business is choosing one that brings fulfillment.

CashCrate is an online platform where you can start earning money by completing offers, taking surveys, watching videos, and shopping online using their site. I’ve played around on the site a little bit, and you’ll want to make sure that you read all of the fine print on each and every offer. Many offers require an email address, which means you’ll receive offers from them and other marketers. Tasks pay out anywhere from a few cents to $30.00 or more, and you’ll receive $1 for signing up for an account. Payments are made via check or PayPal.

Some churches don't have volunteers for their music. A talented pianist, guitar player, etc. can make pretty good money doing this on the weekends. Most churches offer tryouts on occasion. This idea is pretty easy to get started in that you just need to reach out to your worship pastor or someone in that ministry and let them know you have the talent and some experience. Don't be shy!

For more on how you use your love for family history as a business, check out the Association of Professional Genealogists website.

Rielle gets it. She's one of the fifty college students I interviewed for my book, How to Become a Straight-A Student. Like the rest of my subjects, Rielle was a straight-A student at a demanding university (Brown) who made top academic performance seem effortless: no all-nighters; no crippling stress; just a happy, social undergrad with stellar grades. "We like to think that good grades and other accomplishments are directly proportional..
As I’ve already covered with TeeSpring, the T-shirt retailing business is worth millions of dollars. But what if you want to do the manufacturing side of things? T-shirt printing turns out to be quite a rewarding business idea for many each year, but can quickly consume much of your side business idea time—so know what you're getting into before diving in. This multi-billion dollar industry counts big corporate factories as well as home-based part-time entrepreneurs.
Once you’ve established yourself in any number of freelance verticals online, spending your time focusing just on doing inside sales (booking freelance contracts with high-value clients) and then subcontracting your work out to other freelancers can help significantly grow your client list, and revenue generating possibilities with this business idea.

If you want to start a Christmas tree farm, you need to plan ahead. It takes approximately seven years for a Balsam fir--perhaps the most traditional Christmas tree--to grow from a small sapling to a 5- to 6-foot tree. Selling your trees yourself is the best option. Consumers come to the property, pick the one they want, and you harvest it for them. The other option is to buy your trees from a wholesaler and sell them either in your yard or in a vacant lot that you rent from Thanksgiving to Christmas.


Are you known for your amazing holiday tablescapes? What about outstanding light displays that delight the kids, but annoy your neighbors? More people are outsourcing the work of holiday decorating due to its time-consuming nature, sometimes less than favorable conditions, and the sheer amount of work. However, if this is something you excel at, it could be a great way to earn extra income, especially at tough times during the year – the holidays. Even if Christmas lights aren’t your jam, interior decorators offer a valuable service to the designer-challenged.


“So thankful for the family that this company has become. When things get hard, personally, I realize I’ve started turning to my wine family first. There is such a deep bond that forms through the amazing experiences we have been given. This opportunity has changed my family’s life and we will never be the same. Traveling Vineyard for life!” – Elizabeth Allen, Emerald Director
Though too many recruitment agencies are already there, and the presence of web portals make it quite a saturated market, there’s still a huge gap that needs to be filled. Specialized recruitment companies are very less as they offer their services for a very limited set of industries. Get hold of two or three relevant industries and set up your unique presence with a better value delivery.
You might think you need to launch the next Facebook or Uber to make money with a small business, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Make lists of things you enjoy doing, and start thinking about how you could make money from them. Read about what you need to know to turn a hobby into a business here.

In addition to motivations, all job seekers have constraints or limitations they must work within that are unique to their lives and circumstances. In the last post, we discussed some personality constraints: If you’re a crafty extrovert, medical claims billing from home will bore you to tears even if the money is bankrolling your Cristal and caviar lifestyle. You’ll be miserable while you work.

When I first started working from home 15 years ago, I had never heard the acronym WAHM (work-at-home mom). The landscape has certainly changed; now, instead of "Work versus staying home?" the question for moms-to-be is often "What work can I do from home?" Brooke Hall, who runs a Web design business (brookehalldesign.com) and stays home with her 10-month-old son, Owen, is happy doing both. "I get to be here for the first giggle and step, and yet working from home gives me an identity other than ‘mom,'" says the 27-year-old from Dublin, California. "I'm still the same person I was before the baby—partly due to my continuing professional life."

The really cool thing about outsourcing these virtual jobs to say the Philippines or India is that you can spend your time during the day meeting up with clients and by the evening, you can send out your assignments to your virtual team. Because of the time differences, they can work on those assignments overnight, so you’re able to get twice as much work done with this online business model.

"Find the balance and find it early! My kids are in school from 9am to 3:30pm. I work 10am to 3pm and try only to work weekends when necessary. So I've got time to get dinner going and pick them up at school without my career choice affecting them too much. I also include them in as much as I can – you'll find my 5 and 7-year-olds stamping hands at the door at my craft shows, or running appetizers at my open houses."


Another great resource for stay-at-home moms looking to start their own e-business is other “mompreneurs.” Networking with other women who run their own businesses provides you with priceless lessons and tips from the people who have already been where you are now. Other moms know the highs and lows of being a woman in charge of her own enterprise while balancing work and family. The social support is also essential when you run your company from home, as opposed to a more collaborative environment.
Similarly, if you’re a professional (or semi-professional, or aspiringly professional) baker or cake designer, consider starting your own custom-design bakery. Unlike caterers, bakers are often allowed to work out of a non-commercial home kitchen as long as they meet health department requirements. Check your state and local regulations to confirm exactly what you’ll need to get your bespoke bakery started.
“I asked my 8 year old son and 10 year old daughter, who have had me working from home since their toddler years, how they would like to encourage other moms. Their response was, ‘Stick to what you're doing.  Do what is healthy for you and your kids.’ As I began typing, I left out the ‘you’ part. My son immediately said, ‘That's important. You have to remind the moms to do what's best for them, too.’  He's right. We are often so worried about everyone else, that we forget to take care of ourselves. Also, don't forget when you become successful, that it's not always about you. It's about the platform you've been given to encourage and help others."
Vintage clothing is all the rage, and many people would rather buy their clothes from eBay than go thrift shopping for themselves. Use this to your advantage by finding some great clothing at your local thrift shops, fixing it up at home and then listing it online. You don’t have to stop at clothes either. You may have a love for vintage or secondhand jewelry or even vintage brand-related products.

While you can run a reality business from your home, as long as you have your state’s real estate license, you still have to show potential buyers the home. And, don’t forget that you also have to prepare the home for showing too. However, thanks to technology, you can become a virtual realtor where you can show a property without having to physically be there.

Virtual assistants, commonly referred to as VAs, come in all shapes and sizes. Many companies will hire VAs if they are looking for help with online administrative tasks (email, calendar management, data entry, etc), but don’t necessarily want to hire a full time employee just yet. They’re the perfect work from home job for busy people that may need to drop their work at a moments notice, or have very sporadic availability.
While I’m not an advocate of selling yourself short or devaluing your worth, there is a time and a place for freelance job sites. These sites are job boards for freelancers and businesses; it is a place to connect, shop around, and most importantly get some money into your pocket. While many of these sites may offer smaller payouts, they are a great place to gain experience and build up your portfolio.
And freelance coder is an especially great one, since it’s already such a commonplace gig. Whether you want the flexibility of being your own boss, enjoy taking on a wide diversity of projects rather than working with a single company, or prefer to travel instead of staying in one place, you’ve got many reasons to pursue freelance software development—even though technology companies and startups offer their own perks as well.
This is a job with much potential, in part because the title description covers many things. “You can fit your offerings to what you know how to do,” says Stephanie Foster, a former medical transcriptionist who runs the website HomeWithTheKids.com. One can own a virtual assistant business or work from home for a company that makes you available to other employers or clients. HomeWithTheKids.com, for example, currently features several such companies.
Dank Banana Bread is made out of a kitchen in Bushwick but is available at a number of coffee shops around the city.

I also talk about practical, concrete things you can do to start and run a successful consulting business, along with tools, tips, tricks, and techniques for automating your business and keeping costs to a minimum. The info I give is applicable to most other types of businesses as well.

Amazon is a great way to unload used books. But, you can also sell a variety of other items on Amazon as well. You could opt to start an Amazon FBA. You could source products on Aliexpress and drop-ship them from Amazon. That gives you a near-hands-free method of running an ecommerce business without much of the hassles of personally dealing with returns and customer service.
No matter how much of the world has gone digital, people still wear clothes, drive cars, and live in houses—and all of those physical comforts will inevitably fall apart, break down, or get a little messy from time to time. That’s why repair-service jobs will always be in demand, and these businesses have the potential to become quite lucrative. So, if you love working with your hands, and don’t mind getting them dirty, these small business ideas for repair services might be right up your alley.  
Why not build a full-blown Shopify ecommerce store? Create a niche and sell a variety of products directly on your store. Advertise it using Facebook ads. There are an endless supply of blue-ocean niches that are far less competitive than some of the more crowded red-ocean ones that have spawned an endless sea of merchants vying for the consumer's attention.
If you live near a university, there are likely all sorts of research studies looking for participants. While I was an undergrad at Virginia Tech, I got paid $500 to participate in a 6-week dietary study. The study provided all my meals and paid me, but I had to eat a 5,000 calorie diet of 50% fat for 6 weeks, plus I had multiple muscle biopsies, urine/blood testing, etc.

Of course, successful writers need to have a firm grasp on grammar and tone, superb editing chops, and the ability to do their own research and synthesize content that they might be unfamiliar with. It could help if you become an expert in a few different fields, like technology or small business finance, and it’s always important for all freelancers to know how to market themselves and network with potential customers.
If you possess a great deal of business experience and knowledge, why not create a business that helps aspiring entrepreneurs find success? You can use your skills to help new business owners get off to a good start and help experienced entrepreneurs keep up with demand. To show off your knowledge and skills and bring in clients, you can also write articles about business on platforms like LinkedIn.

If you are interested please contact me at 707-478-8299.


The key to success in this business is being very disciplined in buying. Limit your car buying to popular models that you can turn over quickly, models that you have a strong understanding of current local pricing on, cars that you can buy at a significant discount to the price you believe you can fairly sell them for, and cars that are highly unlikely to need major work.

This may be the most sound advice any homeowner can hear. Even if you recently refinanced, it might be worth looking into another quote as they take only a few minutes to check. LendingTree could help you refinance your mortgage at a significantly lower interest rate – Let’s say your interest rate decreased by 1%, you can save more than $100 a month on a $200,000 mortgage. That comes out to $1,200 in extra cash for you at the end of the year and $6,000 every 5 years!

While it may not be obvious at first, the reasons that people may need an image consultant are quite varied. You may be helping someone get a complete wardrobe makeover, or you might help someone work on their image to land their dream job or even their dream mate. To help establish your credibility, you may want to consider becoming a certified consultant.

As a result, the use of social media among small-, medium-, and large-scale companies has veritably exploded in recent years. The employment of social media managers has become commonplace, with businesses actively seeking out individuals who are highly adept at various social media avenues and are able to facilitate and organize consumer communications in those avenues.
Every business needs at least a basic website to succeed, but many business owners don’t know how to set one up for themselves. So, if you’re an IT and design wizard, you’ll have endless opportunities to custom-build websites. Use a platform like Upwork or Envato to gain your first clients, then use your portfolio and word-of-mouth recommendations to grow your client base (and eventually boost your prices).
It used to be, you had to go to the schools or homes of students, or they had to come to your home for tutoring, however, with video conferencing, you can help students from anywhere around the world. You can provide academic tutoring, or teach English to students from foreign countries. You can also provide other instruction such as music (i.e., piano instructor).
 It’s not really insulting I picked up a Photoshop Element 8 and Cs5 Extended while deployed to Afghanistan and before hand I had used a friend trial version with plenty of free time and nothing else to do you can become very talented in these aspects, I myself designed numerous things for my company and batallian won many awards (including a deployment coin I designed) if you have the talent you do not paticularly need to attend a $63,000 university to prove it, most of these schools (I’ve read many reviews) don’t fully go through many of the aspects required for the degrees they issue and many find they are out of school with no work and a mountain of bills, NO THANKS market yourself well enough and your personal talent can get you anywhere without a degree and four wasted years of your life.

Always remember to personally connect with neighbors, friends, and family and let them know about your services. You can also check out third-party platforms like Care.com, SitterCity, and Task Rabbit where they connect caretakers with caregivers.

In fact, the on-demand economy has made it easier than ever to make money on demand — to find out more check out this post.
You can make extra money left and right if you just know where to look. If you like to ‘tinker’ I’d suggest going to the DIY section on Pinterest. You can find thousands of projects there to make, and you can sell them at a nice profit. You can make 20, 30, or 50 bucks at a time, in real money. Not the ‘get rich online now!’ stuff you see around. I make old teapots into lamps, or old shirts into aprons and sell them locally on Kijiji or Craigslist. It’s totally doable.
