Seems like the majority of home-based businesses involve selling. I am looking for people who have an unusual home business. We have thought about handyman services and personal thrift store shopper and things like that, but not sure if they are viable and how to go about it. My husband has employment challenges based on history (felony DUI) and it is very frustrating for him to try to get anywhere being employed by someone else. We have run into so many problems. He does not want to sell anything. Thanks!

OP I hate to say it but if you as for a at home business many moms here see it as an invitation to plug there company. Of course, they will say "no selling is involve the product sells itself." Lets be honest here you and I both know that selling is involved.
If your DH is handy, why not advertise in your local area as a handyman. Hang-up fliers at the grocery store, library, pizza parlor, etc. Also place an add in the local paper. Be sure to have a list of references. If you want to work from home you can watch a few kiddos for money. Another option is there are several in-home customer service opportunities out there.
