  • I crochet hats and scarves and started a blog and facebook fan page to sell them. I never intended it to be a big thing but I am booked until beginning of June with orders, and that's with completing one project a day. What was a hobby turned into a business. Maybe you have a talent or neat idea that you can sell?

  • Right now I'm Blogging (which makes a little off of ads) and I just started with BigCrumbs. Next week I'll be starting a new home business with WildTree. And I'm hoping to have a new Etsy Shop up and running within the next month, as well as an online garage sale sometime durring May. Some of this would already be up, but it takes time to get set up and time is one thing I am always short on.

  • Lots of businesses you will find here and you can make alot of money. First, choose one that you are passionate about, that doesn't cost more to buy than the regular stores. Second work hard at it, traditional businesses don't turn a profit for 5 years but with home based business you don't have extra overhead costs or transportation costs associated with your business and now have many tax deductions as well so you see a profit right away. Don't look for a get rich quick scheme, they are out there but most are illegal.

  • You can sell on eBay. Have you thought about putting an ad on Fiverr? You can make $5.00 off virtually anything. I blog about ideas and opportunities to make money online, some small and some larger scale ones. You are more than welcome to read through my blog at Mavi's Home Work
