This is a man who on our first envelope job bought us our furnace gas heater by paying us upfront half the money he would have topay when the job was done. He was so concerned we had no heat he paid us before we even started writing out the envelopes…I felt so bad to see when I called him 2 months ago someone answered it but was not him or his family. I fear he lost his home:( If he hasn’t we would still be in the back of his mind for envelope work knowing we are his people to get the job done.
Some entrepreneurs, rather than viewing their homes as temporary launching pads, hope to keep their businesses there. “Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, their goal was to get out of that garage into a fancy suite,” said Sara Horowitz, the executive director of Freelancers Union, whose members include home-based independent workers. “But what’s interesting now about many people starting and working in their home is that’s how they want to work.”
When you are a stay-at-home mom, your days aren’t exactly free. Between caring for the house and the kids, there is plenty of work to do. However, as the children grow older and become more involved in school, some stay-at-home parents find they have some spare time on their hands all of a sudden. Starting a home e-business is a great way to make use of that time while contributing to your household income.

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.
Other than major electronics such as your computer or cell phone, software will probably be among your greatest initial expenses for essential equipment. While it may be nice to have all the software that you could probably ever need, it's not cost effective, especially as you embark on your WAHM career. Consider what you'll be using your computer for and how often you'll be using those programs. Let's look at...
There were several great ways to earn more money from your computer. I found a most profitable ways is simply search an idea around on the net and select few that really be able to implement as offline business. You see, most people nowadays so skeptical about make money online. That because so many program online was take first, give later. And a very sad thing about that was so rare that programs give real value to people. And not few were a scam scheme.
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.

Businesses always need graphic designers to help them convey information visually, through logos, advertisements, posters, websites, and the like. While it is possible to be an entirely self-taught graphic designer, most have either a certification or a degree. Other than the cost of design software, this business has very little overhead and can be done anywhere with a dedicated computer. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, graphic designers have a median salary of $45,000.*
How to Get It: Customer service is the biggest work-at-home field, with companies including Spiegel, Hilton, Best Western, HSN, 1-800-FLOWERS and many others using at-home reps. Fill out an application with staffing companies such as Arise, Alpine Access, VIPdesk, LiveOps, and Convergys, all of which vet the companies who are hiring through them. If you need benefits, search through a staffing company that will hire you as an employee (Alpine Access, VIPdesk and Convergys do this) rather than an independent contractor. If you're a contractor, you may be asked to pay a small fee (between $15 and $35) for a background check. While a fee can be a sign of a scam, independent contractors are responsible for their own expenses.
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!
I collected cans in my teens and made a few extra bills for spending money. If this idea is of interest, you might be motivated to hear the true story of Maisie Devore who was able to raise money collecting cans for a community swimming pool.  She was able to save $73,000 over three decades and is still collecting. Whoa! Learn more about this idea by reading my collecting aluminum cans for cash post.

Watertown, a city in upstate New York’s Jefferson County, has nearly 1,800 businesses. Each year, businesses here bring in average revenue of over $1.6 million per business. Nearly half of all businesses in Watertown have paid employees, the highest number on our top 10 list. Jefferson County’s major employer is the Army’s Fort Drum, which is less than 15 miles from Watertown. The Watertown Downtown Business Association promotes downtown restaurants, shops and professional services. The city is home to a Small Business Development Center at Jefferson Community College. It is also the site of a North Country regional Empire State Development Office.

Great ideas about a home based business. However, we all need to understand that most ONline and OFFline buisnesses fail about 90% of the time. Franchises seem to do some better but they have challenges too. Our goal is focused on building a PLAN B to help build financial security. After 32 years in the trenches as an entrepreneur, we invite you to visit our website, join us as a subscriber too where we share about our lumps and bruises in business owners.
All great ideas! Not sure if you left multi-level marketing off on purpose, but I’ve recently started taking a nutritional supplement called Thrive, and due to the amazing results (tons of energy, great sleep, calming of aches and pains, etc.) I’ve started working as a promoter. There is absolutely no requirement to pay anything to sign up, you don’t even have to stock the product, it is a cloud-based business where the customers order online and receive the product directly from the company. If you get two people to sign up with autoship, you get your product free. Even if you pay for the product it is only about $5 a day, less than a cup of coffee in the U.S. So far I’ve been really impressed.
Social networks are a hot spot for work-at-home danger. One company called Easy Tweet Profits claims you can make up to $873/day online. They even claim one person earned $400,000/year using their method of tweeting your way to success. The catch? By signing up for their program you agree to be charged just under $50/month! There are a whole host of other companies with similar names (usually involving “make money” or “make profits”) that suggest social networking can be a cash cow. But their game is all the same. Whether you’re talking about something you see on Craigslist, eBay, Facebook, Twitter or whatever’s the next hot thing, you’ve got to be wary.
Ghostwriting pays pretty well, and if you're talented at researching and creating great content within a certain subject domain, you can quickly build a roster of high-paying clientele with this business idea. Ghostwriters like Jeff Haden have created very lucrative careers for themselves by writing for business executives and CEO's—and Jeff also started his ghostwriting career as a side business idea outside of his full-time job as a factory manager. Listen to his interview with me on The Side Hustle Project (podcast) right here.
 @dasjung No doubt! I know this and you know this, and any other highly skilled and educated designer will also know this. But what about the customers? The people who are looking for a logo design with much consideration of price in this economy.  Knowledge and talent expect the monetary reimbursement it deserves, but unless everybody has a trained eye to recognize it, they just aren’t going to dish out the money for it. That is the point I am trying to make. It is like calling the neighborhood handyman instead of  a high cost plumber to fix a small leak.
I’ve thought about doing some of these money makin things! But seems like I just get the run around to keep doing same survey over an over or end up no where!

Thanks for ur advice I’ll just have to go over stuff see what I think will work best for me ! Thank you Tina L Taylor
Are you a math whiz? Do you speak a second language? Tutoring can be a wonderful home-based business opportunity, especially for those people who have an extensive knowledge of a subject; such as a college student who is majoring in math, a school teacher, or a person who is fluent a foreign language. Companies like Gogokid and Cambly hire native English speakers to teach English to international students.
Motherhood is the most incredible yet challenging J-O-B of our lives. I would do ANYTHING for my kids yet somehow I left ME in the dust. I was not filling my cup.

No cost, no parties, no inventory, no need to be away from my family. Within 12 months of sharing my story in the nooks and crannies from my phone, I was earning a six-figure income. My goal is to help YOU do the same. Text me at 715-441-0629 to chat or visit www.lifeonanewlevel.com for your free account!

Even if the type of food you hope to produce is on the approved list, however, you’ll need to apply for a “Home Processor” license with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, and that’s just the beginning. If you plan to wholesale your products, you’ll also need to complete the Wholesale Business Registration and obtain a Food Protection Certificate and Sales Tax Vendor Registration (Certificate of Authority). If you’re preparing food at home, you’ll also need to ensure that all your equipment, storage and waste removal facilities are in tip-top shape, since home food preparation businesses are subject to regular inspections. Finally, bear in mind that if you’re operating a home food-preparation business, you’ll want to purchase additional insurance since your home insurance may not apply.
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.
While microgreens and bees are generally legal, if you want to raise living creatures larger than bees, you may find yourself with few options. You can raise hens on your roof or in your backyard but roosters and other fowl from geese to turkeys are not permitted. So, if you hope to get into the poultry business, you’ll be limited to hens, but don’t assume you can sell their eggs. Technically, you can keep chickens in New York City but only as pets. Since raising chickens for slaughter or with the intent to profit from their eggs is not necessarily pet-friendly behavior, chicken-related agribusinesses do not comply. Other farm animals, including sheep, goats, and pigs, are neither permitted as pets nor livestock. So, what is an urban farmer to do? To begin, contact the experts at Brooklyn Grange who continue to demonstrate that one can legally run an agribusiness in New York City.

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).
I had no idea that I would fall in love with LipSense. I was a customer for about 4 months and asked for a discount.

So here I am in the business, making money and having fun every step of the way! It only costs $55 + tax to join SeneGence International. If you want a business with sponsors who really care about your success and will help you every step of the way then you are in the right place.

Also, make sure you’re up-to-date on CPR, first aid and other emergency procedures. Then make sure your own kids are OK with sharing their home every day. Once all of that is wrapped up, go to your friends and neighbors, your kids’ teachers, your place of worship and anywhere else busy parents are looking for day-care services, and get your word out.
Likes, shares, and social media engagement have become ways for companies to expand into the online business world and gain followers who later on can be converted into customers. As a basic example, say you come across a post for a business in your local area. Initially, you might give it a like and then later remember, hey, I’ve been meaning to check this place out. Or maybe you give a company page a like and then later make a purchase from them.

What It Is: Students in countries including Japan, Korea, France and Germany are looking for English speakers to practice with. Sessions focus on things like making professional small talk or running a meeting (trainers are provided with specifics on how to teach each topic, and are also trained themselves for two days before starting the job). Lessons take place either over the phone or on a live Internet video service like Skype — sometimes at night, because you're working with students in different time zones. You need to commit to a minimum of 20 hours a week at consistent times, and can work as many as 35 hours.
