#3 Selling Your Art
If you are on the artistic side, get some money on the side. Try Etsy, a virtual marketplace that crafters all over the world sell their products. Café Press also gives you the ability to design and sell your very own graphic printables. If you are a graphic artist, create a website and showcase your work so probable clients can contact you. Who knows, your work might be so good, it could be part of a major art gallery (Did you know that a lot of art galleries have been victims of thievery? Read about the world’s most famous art heists here.)!
#4 Running A Day-Care Center
If you like kids, then you may want to run a day-care center at home. But this is a serious undertaking because you have to keep in mind the health and safety of the children, teach lessons, prepare food, and plan artistic things to do. Also, you have to consider if you have enough space, staff, and start-up money.
#5 Evaluating Health Cases
#6 Hosting Product Parties
#7 Selling Your Photographs
#8 Virtually Assisting
If you are organized and love being so (we’re sure you’d love these pictures that are just sheer perfection), try being a virtual assistant. Most business owners are able to save money by contracting independent workers for tasks such as scheduling, transcription, and data entry from their home office.
#10 Being A Customer Service Agent
There are many businesses that hire recruits to work from home as customer service agents. If you want to make your own schedule, this could be for you. Check out sites like LiveOps.
#11 Selling Old Stuff
#12 Researching Answers To Random Questions
If you are curious by nature, there are websites that will pay you for information. Case in point, ChaCha pays $3 to $9 each hour while you research answers to random questions. If you are more of an expert, you can answer people’s questions on LivePerson.
#13 Maintaining A Company’s Books
If you are good with finances, you can maintain and keep a company’s books. All small businesses need a great bookkeeper. Besides having a strong knowledge of math, you need to know how to use cloud-based accounting software. You can advertise your services on free websites for freelancers and independent contractors on Elance and oDesk.
If you have a university degree and can teach students science, math, English, etc., you can become an online tutor. Check out Tutor.com. Just make sure you have the tools such as Skype and other web interface tools.
