Apple and Aflac often offer work from home jobs in their customer service departments.

You could do hair nd nails on the side. Advertise for Prom season, especially. Teenagers are on a tight budget and often cannot afford a salon.

I work as a proofreader and write... I don't know that you can do either of those things, though. I've also seen some legitimate telecommunte customer service positions posted on craigslist... but you have to be super careful about craigslist.

Craiglist, FB, newspapers, signs in the yard, flyers in malls ...

Babysit? I'm not sure bc you would have to have some type of business background or medical transcription for a legit, good income

I have no idea. Maybe baby sitting or call center type work?

I work from home as a nanny for a 1yo while taking care of my 2 kids as well. You could do something like that or like someone else said advertise your hair/makeup services.

There are a few options I've heard of, if I remember correctly one was called Lion Bridge? I think there are some customer service call center type jobs you can do from home but I believe they require a certain number of hours of quite uninterrupted time to take calls. I know that kind of time is not generally readily available with a newborn.

I work in direct sales and love it, but it sounds like you're looking to work FOR someone versus starting your own business from home.

Even just getting it out there word of mouth could be a good start. It may not be a quick success, but I'd imagine there could be the potential of consistent clientele if you took the time to build it =)
