Ways to make money from home

Are you looking for ways to make money from home?  I have scoured the internet, talked to friends and family, and my own experience to give you some ideas.

Two companies that you all know; Avon and Tupperware.  Both are still going strong today.  My Grandma used to sell Avon back in the day and she made pretty good money doing it, too.  Tupperware basically offers the same payments plans as Avon, you get a percentage of what you sell and  deep discounts on what you buy as a consultant.  I know all of us have purchased something from Avon and Tupperware.

What special skills do you have that you can market?  Are you a good photographer with a top notch camera?  Do you know how to start a photography business? Buy a few photo props and get started.  You can make accounts on social media outlets to advertise.  I see these a lot in online yard sale groups on Facebook.  You can start by posting pictures you have already taken. I personally know someone that charges a $50 sitting fee for a 30 minute session.  You can photograph kids, weddings, Holidays, pregnancies, the list is endless.  This can be a very profitable work from home business.

I know a lot of people that have started their own boutique business.  They buy trendy clothes at wholesale prices and sell them for a profit.  I have even bought a few clothing items myself from these boutique businesses and been quite pleased.  When you can work from home, you set the hours YOU want to work.  With the boutique type business, you can have a certain time of day you post pictures of the items you have for sale and people will comment that they want to buy that item. You can even do this one or two days a week. You send an invoice and when they pay, you ship the item to them.  You can do this on Facebook or set up a marketplace on a blog using Shopify or many others selling tools like it.

If you are a Mom that wants to stay home with the kids, perhaps you would like to provide daycare in your home for other children.  With the cost of daycare ranging from $150 to $200 week for one child, that is definitely a way you can work from home and make money.  You need to check with you state’s Department of Human Resources to see how many kids you can keep if you are not certified.  Or, if you want to be a certified daycare, you can find all the information you need to start!

Make sure when you decide that you want to work from home that you have a marketable skill.  If you do not like selling items and having to deliver, do not sign up to sell Avon.  If you like fashion and are a good stylist that can recognize the trends in fashion, check out the boutique wholesalers.  All of these work from home ideas can make you money, you just have to be willing to do the work.
