Just a few minutes  browsing the internet and you’ll come up with literally hundreds of possible ways to earn money from home.  While some are scams, some are legitimate opportunities.  You can do a lot of your own sorting out of the options, but here are the ones we’ve found to be most likely to create some additional income.  And with a little time and effort, they could turn into a full time business.

Daycare For Pets

Seems most everyone has a dog or a cat.  And let’s face it, we love our critters!  Which means that lots of people have at least thought about having someone care for their cat or dog while they’re at work or on vacation.  While this probably isn’t a good idea if you’re living in an apartment, if you’re an animal lover this could be a natural fit.

Daycare For Kids

So you want to work at home, and you happen to love kids even though you don’t have any of your own.  Why not provide daycare to working parents?  You’ll be helping the parents, caring for the kids, and at the same time get to be a “part time parent” yourself.  And earn money while you’re doing it!

Selling Stuff

If you’re going to sell stuff, obviously you have to buy it.  Are you one of those who loves to roam garage sales, flea markets, and estate sales? Why not turn your hobby into something profitable?   Pick up those items you know are under-priced and re-sell them on Craigslist or Ebay.  Believe it or not, there are Ebay sellers who are making over $100,000 annually.


You have plenty of skills and talents.   In today’s connected world, there are people and companies all over the world who want one-off jobs and projects done.  Search “freelancing” and you’ll find a number of websites that are specifically designed to hook up providers like you with those in need of your services.

Virtual Assistants

A step beyond freelance is the realm of virtual assistants.  These tend to be longer or even permanent work assignments.  You might find yourself working for an individual, a team, or a company.  You’ll have the security of a continued work relationship, but the autonomy of working at home.

And More

As we said, there are an endless stream of opportunities to make money online from home.  From photography and modeling to high end consulting, what was once done only at the end of a daily commute to work can now be done at home.  Just remember, no matter what you choose to pursue, do your due diligence. Check references and ratings.  And  soon you’ll be able to find one that’s a perfect fit for you.
