Test products
Participate in surveys

Better way?

Throughout the years I have come to look at all of them. I had to register myself, sometimes pay money and then it was all kinds of work that was not fun at all. In addition, the earnings were not great either. I thought, “There must be a better way?”

And there is! If you are a bit creative you can also work from home, but in ways that you really like. To help you on your way, I have made a list of ideas to make money from home. Most ideas require a bit of entrepreneurship, but I believe everyone can learn that. Here are 20 of the top working from home ideas.

  1. You have some great work-from-home ideas here. My daughter is looking at starting her own craft business at home making things to sell. I hear that eBay is quite expensive to use as a selling platform. What other suggestions would you have for her? Would it be worthwhile her starting her own website?

    • Ebay is of course a great opportunity as you will be able to reach a lot of people. Your daughter can also start a website, but it should be a local one. You can choose a radius of so many kilometres around your place of stay. She will then need to promote her website with flyers, local newspapers etc.
