  • I do daycare/preschool out of my home. I usually charge $500/month for full time or $25/day or $2.50 an hour for drop in, offering discounts for multiple kids. It isn't something everyone can or should do though. If you are interested in something like this PM me and can talk.

  • I tutor online. You have to have a college degree and you get paid roughly $10/hr starting. Its not a ton but every bit helps and I control my schedule completely.

  • I own my own business, so I have yet to pull in a salary, because any money we make goes right back into growing the business.

  • Ameriplan is a Benefits company helping save people thousands each year on their Health/Dental, Legal/Financial, ID Theft and other needs. I market the plans for them and help others to work at home with them. I love this becaise I don't do any selling/cold calling and there are no products or parties involved, just helping people :-).

    You can put in as little or as much time as you want, as with anything what you put in you will get out. I work VERY P/T around my 2 little ones and I am very happy with my income. We receive Daily Pay~Benefits~Training~Total Support~Residual income~Willable/Sellable contract!!
