  • you could babysit, or sell avon. anything else where you have to pay money to make money is not a good idea, usually a scam.

  • 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.

  • I am with Scentsy the wickless candle and love it. We are one of the fastest DSA companies out there right now with the economy being what it is. The reason is our products are low cost, last longer, Safe and our start up is low and the product sells itself. My website is: and my email is .

    I started back in March of 08 when I saw where the economy was heading and I wanted to be prepared with another income just in case. And it has well paid off for us, my husband is a big part and support because he loves it also. But that seems to be how this company goes. The husbands join in! Good luck. and you are welcomed to PM me.

  • You can do lots of different things.....many responders are with specific Direct Sales companies. You can do "ok" with them, but most that join these companies don't make much if any money...yes some do, but there is NO guarantee you'll make money based on the hours you put into it.

    You could babysit, offer to run errands or clean houses for elderly in the area, bake cookies or cakes for those who want homemade items without a bakery price, sell things you and your family outgrew on eBay or Craigslist (then shop thrift shops for more things)....this is what I do and make anywhere from $50-$300 a week depending on how many things I list and sell.
