  • Babysitting.
    I have no idea what your skill set is. I have no way to know what you might do.

  • Withoutknowing your circumstances or what you can do, it's hard to say. Sell stuff on Ebay. Fill out surveys online. Just remember, nobody's going to pay you to do little or nothing. Never pay to join a site that promises rewards. Go to bigspot.com if you want to find some legit sites.

  • Babysitting is good. Or get a job at a daycare where your child is welcome. That's what I do.

  • I've done transcription, answering service, Amazon Turk, and some surveys. I've also done freelance writing and blogging. If you see an advertisement, you want to look for the small print.... is it legit, do your own research very carefully. Remember, it's easier for you to start something on your own. Don't join something that you can start on your own.
