Hey there @Melissa, I know you didn’t originally post to me, but I work for Younique, selling cosmetics at home. What I love about the company is that they focus on selling on social media and the internet, which makes it really convenient. Plus the company and my uplines are so positive and supportive! Not to mention the product is great, so that helps! I would love to talk more about it with you!
For those with a large Twitter following, you can make money from your Tweets alone with Sponsored Tweets. You could be paid for sharing a business’s information, recommending restaurants or hotels, or tweeting pictures of you using or wearing products. As with all sponsored posts on social media, businesses will only be prepared to pay you to Tweet if you have a large following that you can influence. So work hard on building up a loyal fan base.
I’m trying to build my business, so I can stay at home. So currently I am working a more-than-full-time job out of the house, and working my Jamberry business in any free time I have! I’ve never liked selling things, but I fell in love with Jamberry’s product, so I knew even if I only bought for myself and family id come out on top. I feel safe having them on my nails, as they’re non-toxic! – Andrea Stewart at Jamberry Nails

Before I talk about some of the methods for making money online, I wanted to address the role of pain versus pleasure. Every decision that we make in life is weighed on a pain-versus-pleasure scale. We will always do more to avoid pain than we will to gain pleasure, plain and simple. However, this is also what holds us back from succeeding in any endeavor.

Secret Shopper. Big companies need real consumers to walk into a store and see how their product is displayed on the shelf. A couple of apps — Rewardable and Gigwalk — enable moms to complete those tasks for a few dollars. Yes, really, set your expectations that it’s just a few dollars, but hey, maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Or maybe you were going to Home Depot anyway, so snapping a picture of the Rustoleum display for $4 is no skin off your back. Expect to get paid via PayPal.


I just started taking clients as a health coach. I set my own schedule and work as much as I decide to. I also share essential oils through dōTERRA and have made that a business too.  Both are flexible and rewarding, but dōTERRA is easy to get started on, anyone can do it, all you are doing is sharing how great essential oils are, and making money while doing it. I’d be happy to share how I got started with both of these with anyone who is interested. – Ameryn Briggs at Eat Live Flourish and doTerra

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!
I am a stay at home mom of a 6 month old boy. I had to quit my fulltime job 2 years before I even got pregnant due to health issues. I decided to continue to use my college education and passions to bring in extra income. I became a Pampered Chef Consultant to help other busy women and men learn how to make quick and healthy meals. I am a Personal Trainer by profession so I also train clients in my home. I do photography sessions occasionally and I now babysit occasionally in my home! God is good. He provides when we give him our talents!

How do I get started? To become an Interior Decorator (this is different from Interior Designer) I recommend starting a website, take quality photos of your work, ask friends and family if you can work for them at no charge to help add to your portfolio, once you’ve created a polished visualization of your work you can then start to charge for your service.

User Testing hires people to test out websites. Each assignment pays $10/$15 for 20 minutes of work. To become a tester – submit your email address and apply.

Each test takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
You can work as a virtual assistant through dedicated websites, such as Upwork or Zirtual. All kinds of skills are needed, and compensation can vary anywhere between $10 per hour to $100 or more. Obviously, the higher pay will be to people who have more technical skills, such as web building skills and marketing. But you can find work doing administrative tasks at the lower end of the pay scale.
A wide range of businesses need workers to enter various data into their systems, whether that data are used to track inventory or shipments, create business plans, or measure performance or output. And since a computer and typing skills are the most important requirements for this job, many data entry workers are able to work at home, and on a schedule that fits their lives.

Great article, thanks. I’m a Mom of 4, now a hands-on Nanna. Pretty hard to get things done when your kids are small. When my oldest was being bullied at school I was a single Mom and desperately needed money to pay for an alternative private school. So I became an ethical dog breeder. Twenty seven years on I’m still doing it and reckon it beats most other options out there hands down.

5. Fiverr – Fiverr is a great place to make a few bucks or spend a few bucks if you need some of the services people offer. Basically, everything is $5. You either pay $5 or charge $5. They call them “gigs.” You can offer your services however you choose. If you sell art and you’re fine selling pieces for $5 each, that’s a gig. If you’re a graphic designer and you want to offer your services for $10/hour, simply offer a 30 minute gig. If they need two hours of graphic design, they pay you $20, or $10/hour by buying four gigs.
