Looking for a Way to Earn Money from Home.

Updated on August 09, 2010
S.A. asks from Clermont, FL
26 answers

I stay at home with my son 4 days a week, and would love a way to earn a little bit extra money while staying at home. I am kind of hesitant of some of the home work options I've looked into, so I thought I would see if anyone here has had some success with a home business.
Thanks!

Hi S.,
I've found a wonderful way to stay home with my 10 month son that's been great for both of us. I started a home day care. You can keep up to 10 kids or as few as 2. It's pretty great, I give a grace period for personality matches, my son has playmates, and I can actually make my old salary keeping 4 kids other than my son. If you need more info feel free to contact me.

S.,

I have found the greatest financial opportunity ever!, but it only takes three people to make it work.

You can work-from-home and it's a wherever whenever type this as you help build a world wide network that's already been established.

"The richest people in the world build networks, everyone else just looks for work." ~Robert Kiosake from Rich Dad, Poor Dad

If you know three people it will work and you will begin to earn a residual income.

I'm in the process of looking for three business partners who I'd have something in common with and I'd love to get you involved as I've already started earning.

If you know of anyone who else who is intrested in being a business partner or learning more, please contact me as I strive to stay-at-home and provide for my family.

I have been searching for something to do from home for 10 months. I have yet to find anything legitimate that doesn't involve selling something (i.e. Avon, Mary Kay, etc.). If you find something legitimate please let me know! I will do the same for you if my search ever turns up anything.

Hi S.... I am also a stay at home mom. I am 33 and have two girls. My girls are two and a half and seven months old. I was a teacher for the Lee County School board and wanted to stay home with my kids. I looked forever for a home business that suited me. I didn't want to do at-home parties because I wanted to be home with my husband in the evenings. I couldn't do transcriptionist work because I am a terrible typist! I tried mystery shopping but it didn't pay but $8 - $12 a job, not enough for me to drag my two girls to the store for. I pretty much gave up looking and then I found out about a business that my mom's friends' son was into. It is fantastic and real! It is a job you can do along with another career or alone. I am now a referring travel agent for an online travel company. I have a website, that they set up for me (I am not very computer literate!)I spend my girls nap time emailing friends and family, calling friends and family and asking them to book their travel needs on my website. I receive commision from all travel booked on my site. I also receive tremendous bonuses for any one who joins the company through me. I go to the park, beach, library all week and play! While I am there I let everyone I meet know what I do. That's it! If you're real ambitious you could contact schools and churches in your neighborhood and talk with them about booking trips through you. The comission on somehting like that would be tremendous. The travel site is similar to Travelocity, the people book their own travel and receive their own confirmations. I have no part in the actual travel planning.
This type of job works for me. Maybe it could work for you. Let me know your email and I will send you more info and the web address to check it out.

I untill recently worked for a company called LiveOps. They are legit, the company routs calls to your home phone and you take orders for infomercials. It's real easy, they provide training and all yau need is a computer, land line phone and internet. You get paid .25 a min. You are an independent contractor so you don't get benefits. There is a cost of $30 for a background check but only if you are hired. They are a great company to work for. The only reason I'm not working for them now is because I didn't work for them for 60 days and was deactivated and have to wait 6 months now. Look into it, there web address is www.liveops.com and they have more info.
