  • Well, I always recommend eBay first.  It's quick and easy money.  After that, I have tons of ideas listed in my blog.  You are more than welcome to read through that when you have time at Mavi's Home Work.    Everything I discuss is legal too!!  LOL!!

  • Direct sales is a great option. There are lots of different companies with products to suit everyone's interests. I would suggest choosing a product you can be passionate about, because it's really hard to sell something to others when you aren't excited about it. You can check out the Direct Selling Association ( and The Direct Selling Education Foundation ( for great information about the different companies and how to pick the right one for you. I have created a Facebook page for my business:

  • 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 small business marketing and medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
