  • I never had much luck trying to make money from home. I dont have the money to start either so I did the baysitting thing and I tried crocheting and made an etsy account, no luck. I managed to find a great job outside of home. I part time, 20 hours a week, 5 hours shifts, weekends off. My hours are 7pm-midnight. I work at a distribution center. There is a lot of lifting, lots of paperwork and you need to really stay focused, lift right and be aware of your surroundings, but it is a great job. I've been there for 3 weeks and have been able to help with bills which has really helped us financially! Plus all day I cam be super mom, super homemaker, SO comes home from work and then I go to work (no daycare cost) and have some adult interaction and focus on something other than mom stuff lol

  • 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.

  • Anything that cost a start up fee is either a business or a scam, It is not a job. Legit jobs pay you, you don't have to pay them. You best bet would be to look for telecommuting jobs. Good luck. Work at home jobs that are legit are very difficult to find.

  • There is an endless list of options, online and offline. Do you want an easy "job" or a complicated "business"? I work for a couple places, I don't buy or sell anything, never spend a dime, and don't have to manage a 'business'... Earn Money Online
