  • Have you looked into becoming a Virtual Assistant? You can Google the term, to find out about national certification and organizations that help for you to establish your OWN business or to team up with existing businesses. VA's are very popular for small to mid-sized companies, who either cannot afford the office space for an assistant, or don't have a constant workload to justify a full-time job--then there is the added cost of insurance and benefits.

    Being a VA offers you the flexibility to work whenever it's convenient for you, allows you to keep your skills sharp, and of course, make good money. As with any home-based business, the amount you get paid is directly proportionate to the amount of work you put in--but it sure beats a retail job! LOL

    Basically you accept and/or bid on projects that you can handle, and build a reputation or company base from there.

  • I am an independent distributor with Scent Sations. Scent Sations is a network marketing company with the option to retail, fundraise or build a team. Take a look around my website and see if it would be something you are interested in doing.

    I also work part time from home typing appraisals for appraisers and there are several that could probably use the help right now. It is simple data entry once you learn the program. I would suggest contacting the real estate appraisers in your area to see if this would be a possibility. With interest rates being so low they have been swamped with work.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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 and job search coaching.
