  • This wouldn't be a regular income generator, but if you have a lot of things you want to get rid of and don't want to bother with a garage sale-- EBay is a good alternative. You could also make something and sell your things on Etsy.com.

  • I would sugest finding something that you love. For example if you love working with children maybe look at babycrazy or usborne books. If you love educating people about how to take care of the environment and their families then look into Shaklee. If you love Jewelry then look into Jewels by Park Lane. You get the point...LOL There are some really great sites out there to search on just a few of my favorite are www.wahm.com and www.cwahm.com . Also search for blogs of other wahms. My blog site is www.howmymomworksfromhome.com . There is so much out there that it can become overwhelming. Also there are some survey sites that do pay Cashcrate, Swatcash and many more, but be careful on these or you can end up paying them money. Feel free to email me if you have any ?s lein@wctel.net :)

  • I agree check out what you love to do or could see yourself doing. I always wanted a part-time job that allowed me to help people with their health and found it with Juice Plus a whole food nutraceutical that comes in a capsule, chewable and gummie. My website is www.Eileen4jp.com if you would like to learn more. My email address is eileen4jp@prodigy.net. One thing I like about this company is that the top position gives you a benefits package that includes health insurance, life insurance, dental insurance etc worth over $60,000. Eileen

  • I was in your shoes not too long ago.  After  lots of research and assessing my own skills I became an IBO with Ameriplan. I have a financial and management background, so a transition to selling medical and dental benefits and building a team suited me well.  I also found Ameriplan to be a reputable company. Good fit.

    On the other hand selling jewelry or candles etc would not have been a good fit. I love both products and am a GREAT consumer of both, but it's just not something I'm very passionate about selling. Bad fit. One of my friends is great at selling Silpada jewelry and does very well. She, however, would not do well with selling medical or dental benefits. 

    If you don't really enjoy what you do then it's just a job. The fact that you can do it from home means you have less to resent, but it will still get old fast.


    Good luck!
