  • Look at direct selling.
    Scentsy, Avon, Tastefully Simple, etc.
    Great for extra money, but can easily become a full time income if you work at it!
    Flexible hours, work around the hubby and kid's schedules.

  • You have to be careful about some of the work from home plans. Spending some money to make money is fine, but you don't want to get stuck with inventory. I got a job where I comment on Facebook and YouTube for companies and it wasn't much to get involved in it. I've been doing it for a few months and it pays a couple of bills per month. (

  • All these work at home options on the Internet are crap. There is one company that I know of Convergys that hires costumer service reps to work from home. You have to go through training so you have to live near a training site. they pay 9 dollars an hour. You have to hae a computer and high speed Internet. Go to their website. Some of the families my agency works with work for this company.

  • Its not something you can do from home but its always helps some people I know when they need extra cash and it can be flexible in hours and most pay in cash.
    House cleaning and house sitting, and/or pet sitting/walking.

  • Have you considered a consumable direct sales company? This a great choice because your clientele will need to reorder once they run out. I personally do Tastefully Simple and the majority of my sales are from reorders :-)

  • I sell Scentsy and I love it :-) The starter kit is $99 but it is well worth it... I have been with Scentsy since August and my 1st two months were slow (only made about $50 my first 2 months)... You get started out making 20% commission then once u reach $1000 in sales you start making 25% commission... Message me for more info or if u would like to sign up :-)
