** Remember these are not success stories or get rich quick schemes. These are just idea offered up by other homeschool parents. **
First and foremost, it is offered up to anyone that you should pick a job/hobby that you are interested in and you are gifted in. Remember we all are gifted in something and some have more then one gifting.
--->> Find something you're passionate about. I know that sounds silly when you actually need income coming in, but its so important. <--- nbsp="">--->
Work-from-home ideas: You will need to click the attached links open to learn more or contact their consultants linked to this post.
- Virtual Assistant at Simple Mom
- Independent Scentsy Consulting
- Etsy Shop (blogger tip: strongly recommend Etsy if you are good at ANYTHING from cupcakes, to knitting, to digital goods or jewelry making! Personally recommend staying away from direct sales. Here you can make 100% profit vs. only 30-40% that has to go to an upline. Also recommend meeting with a local group to bounce ideas).
- Be direct/social seller - Independent Designer with Origami Owl or Origami Owl Consulting
- Work At Home United
- Sell on ebay or amazon
- Avon or Mary Kay (Please know these two businesses do take a while to kick off. Sales wont happen over night. I sold Avon and found that with the economy dropping, I was spending more money on the cost of magazines to hand out then I brought in so I stopped. That is also with my own website page. Liked selling but just was not working at the time.)
- Paparazzi Accessories , Paparazzi Consulting
- West, Expert Planet or Liveops --- It is mostly taking orders when people call to place an order from infomercials.
- Userborne Books Consulting and Books Are Fun Homeschool
- Pamper Chef Pampered Chef Consulting
- Nuskin Consulting
- Young Living Consutling
- Healthy Living Wraps
- Juice Plus Consulting
