  • There are lots of things you can try. You just have to be careful, many of those who try direct selling companies make little to no money, while others do very well with them....

    But direct selling companies are one: Avon, Tupperware, Discovery Kids, PartyLite....there are hundreds out there.

    You can babysit in your home, open a day care, clean houses or run errands for those in your area, make crafts and sell at craft shows, sell on craiglist or eBay, do a LOT of surveys online.....

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, . Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching.
