  • Sure, there are ways. Are you looking for a business though? Usually it would only be a home business that has any kind of start up... So, since that's what you mentioned I am going to assume that's what you are looking for... There are many w/o any start up fees, but remember you get what you pay for, businesses are no different.

    I am with TeaPoria and GreenSmoke both are free to start. While there CAN BE a cost, there doesn't need to me. If you want to earn the most money however you will need to put money it to them eventually for parties or demo tables or something... But you can start for free...

  • You can also work from home with MANY other Affiliate programs but those will earn you less than actual home businesses... If you would like to see SOME (not all) of the ones that I am involved with you can visit

    The site is still in it's infancy but it will give you a great number of places that will help you earn from home... and all but 2 are free...

    You can also Check out my other site... Sabrina's Closet and see a great list of WAH Jobs and businesses...  Everything on all of my sites is legit. Otherwise, I wouldn't post it!

  • Sell on eBay....start off by selling what you already have in your house...outgrown clothes, toys, collectibles gathering don't pay eBay for 30 days when you get your invoice (or you can pay as you go which is what I do) so you can get started with $0

    You can then take the money you earn to go to yard sales, thrift stores and clearance racks for more things to sell, you you make more you'll be able to keep more profits for yourself.

    Yes, eBay has higher fees than other auction style sites popping up, but none of them puts your auctions in front of millions of potential buyers like eBay does. Some gripe and moan about the high fees, but ANY business has fees, and I happily pay them their share when I pocket $300-$500 a week as I do now!!!!
