  • Sell Mary Kay, Thirty-one bags. Make something for a craft fair, you would have all year to prepare for a Christmas craft fair. Babysit.

  • you could babysit, find a PT job that fits your SO's schedule (I recently got a pt job from 7pm to 12:30am 5 days a week and it fits our schedules perfectly, meanwhile ds can stay home), if you are super crafty you can sell stuff on etsy

  • I think one of the best ways to help the family out financially is to learn to cook from scratch and follow a budget.

    But if it needs to be extra income I think a 2nd job is great. I clean an office once a week and depending on where you live and how good of a job you do, you can earn quite a bit of money from that. It doesn't have to be that though. You could sew on a button, make dinner for someone a few times a week and charge them a little bit. Become a photographer, edit a paper, etc.

    Find something your passionate about and start thinking of some ways to make it profitable.
    Good luck!

  • I have an opportunity to share with you that involves enhancing others lives while enhancing your own in the process by promoting safer products for you, your family, your home and the environment..

    It is a sales job or MLM. There is no inventory to maintain, no large investment requirement and you can cancel at anytime! Put simply it is a small business opportunity that just makes great sense!

    If you'd like more detailed information I'd be more than happy to set up an appointment with you to share this opportunity with you.

    Please feel free to call me at 757-773-5748 or PM me.

    I look forward to hearing from you and have a great day!
