Pick a username that works for you and is memorable (if you’re using an existing Google account you’ll have to edit your username in Google+).
More than ever, writers are needed to formulate news articles, create content, and come up with the creative ideas that fill the pages of nearly every site on the Internet. And although many bigger sites have in-house writers, a growing number of sites outsource their content and hire freelance writers and content creators. Writing experience is very helpful, but what you really need to get started are drive, ambition, and the ability to find a unique angle on events that happen every day.

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.

Team building is key in direct sales! Since my kids are school-aged I also started substitute teaching this year and love it. Definitely looking into a few more ideas from this list. Thanks again!
Be sure that the employer provides you with a written contract that states how much money you'll be making along with your job responsibilities. Before signing anything, make sure that you understand what is expected of you. Ask questions and note the kind of response you get. If a company representative is vague, dismissive or becomes hostile, turn down the offer and find something else.
If you have a background in marketing and a passion for a particular niche, then organizing a virtual event may be just up your street. A virtual event could span across a day or longer. Individual live sessions would be run by experts in the field. And conference features would include live question and answer sessions, forums, and plenty of free giveaways. Visitors to the virtual event would pay to attend, so the more effective your promotion of the event the more money you would make.

White labeling products involves purchasing pre-made products from a supplier and then adding your own labeling and branding. Products could range from candles to gym equipment or even tea, but all will come without labels, allowing you to create your own new range of merchandise. Most suppliers will advertise the fact they offer white labeled goods on their websites, so pick your niche and then find the right supplier and product for you. Once labeled, products can be sold via sites like eBay and Amazon, or from your own eCommerce store (discussed in a moment).

Clearly, there's a lot of demand on Amazon, and if any product is going to sell, it's going to sell well on Amazon.

Just be sure to do the right market research before jumping on this bandwagon.
What you said Natasha!!! I am scared as well but kind of encouraged after reading all of the success stories. I have been at my current job for 6 years as well and am due in October. At 16 weeks I have already had complications with this pregnancy and am battling my employer on following my doctor’s orders. Despite doctor’s notes from emergency room visits my supervisor does not comprehend my high risk pregnancy. I never would have thought about being a SAHM until now. I loved this article and have found hope that I can do this!
