Hello! I’m an independent consultant with Rodan + Fields, a premium skincare line from creators of ProActive. What Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields did for acne, they are now doing for sun damage, adult acne, sensitive skin, and the biggie…anti-aging! R+F just launched into Canada last fall and we are headed into Australia in 2016. If two billionaire doctors offered you the opportunity to join them in business AND be a part of the #4 premium skincare company in the US what would you say? I would love to talk with you!
If you’re still not having any luck with the jobs I've shared above – check out FlexJobs. The company has a A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau,  along with a money-back policy if you are unhappy with the website. FlexJobs guarantees that every single job is hand-screened for legitimacy. This is a great way to search for legitimate work at home jobs without the hassle of dealing with scams.
This is a great list! Some of these I have never thought of for the stay at home moms (and stay at home dads 😉 ) out there. I have done a lot of research on different ways to make some income and I am always amazed at the ideas I still routinely find. You mentioned working for Amazon. I know Amazon has a platform that offers some micro jobs you can do as well. They pay small amounts but if you do a lot they can add up! I also like Uber! But only for driving during the day. I wouldn’t suggest driving for Uber at night.
If you’re serious about making money selling things online, it’s pretty much impossible to not recommend Shopify. The platform gives you everything you need to get your online store up and running in less than a day including a custom domain, beautiful templates (so you don’t need design skills), secure payment options, and they can even take care of marketing and shipping for you. Whether you’re selling your own products, designs, or curating other products for people in your niche, Shopify is the best option for powering your online store.
21. Facebook – Facebook swap shops are great for selling things locally. It’s like CraigsList, but a little easier. You simply search for swap shops in your area and ask to join the group. Once you’re in, take a picture of the item, write a quick description with the price and post it. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.
I have three under three and stay at home, but I wanted the ability to still have measurable goals, connect with adults, and earn some extra income for our family- I became a Rodan + Fields skin care consultant a few months ago. I love it because I can work when kids are napping, it’s mostly connecting online with others and all business is done through a website. I love the products and have seen crazy good changes with my skin, but don’t have to carry inventory around with me to sell to people!
Those who are fluent in more than one language can translate recordings or documents. If you are fluent in in-demand languages such as Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, French, Italian etc you can find plenty of translation jobs online. There are many legitimate translation agencies or companies that hire home-based translators across the world. When translating documents or audio files, translators do not just translate word for word but often take cultural differences in mind to convey the messages properly to their clients’ targeted audience. If you are familiar with terminology in a technical or scientific area, you can earn significantly higher income providing translation services as an employee or freelance translator.
It’s one of the oldest and most proven ways to make money – buy low, sell high. The buy low part comes from searching garage sales, estate sales, and even thrift stores to find items that are in good condition (“gently used”) but selling well below what they would if they were brand-new. In this way, you might be able to acquire an item for $5, and later sell it for $50.
Great list Whitney! Another great option is Amazon FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) There are apps (like Profit Bandit) that will allow you to scan the barcodes of clearance items at local stores and know instantly if the item can be sold for a profit on Amazon. The beauty of FBA is you simply ship all of the items at once to Amazon and they handle picking, packing and shipping your items when they sell so you can get back to being a mom 🙂 I know three people that make a legitimate six-figure income doing this from home.
My husband and I were builders in the military. Now, I’m a stay-at-home mom and he goes to school full-time, so our budget is extremely tight. It’s even tighter with hundreds of dollars going towards debt each month. We decided to use our construction experience to renovate and sell our home for a profit. We plan to use the money to pay off most, if not all, our debt. The next house should make enough money for us to pay ourselves a monthly salary while we work on the house after that and so on. This will be our “job,” so we get to work at home and create our own schedule as a family.

You can find local or online tutoring opportunities. Be sure to read the requirements listed before applying. Some companies will require you to hold valid teaching credentials. Others will simply want a bachelor's degree in any field. You can also find positions available where you can prove your ability to tutor a subject through a test. Typically, the higher your level of education in a field, the more money you can make.


Taking paid surveys is perhaps the easiest ways to pick some extra cash online. However, it is imperative that you join some of the best paying legitimate survey sites if you want to earn some money by giving your opinions through paid online surveys. You can find useful information on how to make money from surveys and which survey sites are best at Real Online Surveys.
I’m looking for people to join my team with Advocare! It’s a great opportunity to get healthy (especially as the New Year approaches!) and make some additional money! I make a couple hundred dollars extra each month and save on my own orders! I feel so strongly about the program I’m willing to pay people’s start up costs! Email me with “advocare” in the subject line if you’re interested!
