  • The fastest thing you can do is get another job.

    Everything else (all the MLM sales pitches about how you can get rich sitting on a beach in Jamaica, for instance) are sales pitches by sales people who are trying to make THEIR sales figures go up.

  • Can you sell anything on eBay or Craigslist? That's about the fastest way to make quick money.

  • Honestly, good luck. What you're asking for is probably rare. If it wasn't, everyone would be doing it. The only thing you can do is pick up an extra job, maybe cleaning offices or houses, baby-sitting,selling stuff, etc. Why not just re-examine your budget and cut some things out?

  • I am actually both an author and a network marketer. I have to say that i resent that comment about using people to make my sales go up..that may be true for some but should not be a general misconception for this industry. if you are passionate about a company that has a great compensation plan, def. give it a try because I have had tremendous success. Both my husband and I have been retired from corp. America because of our home business for many years now, because we are committed to helping others.
    It sounds as if you are not ready to commit to investing in a home business at this time, so what I recommend is becoming an affiliate of a product. I myself offer moms the opportunity to become an affiliate of my book for free. If you choose to, you can earn $9.45 to anyone you recommend my book to and they make a purchase. If you market to moms here on Cafe Mom, you can offer them a 25% discount and still earn a commission

  • 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 (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
