Question by MELISSA T: Is there really a home based business?
Is there really a home based business? If so I really would like for someone to send me in the right directions!?
Answer by Martha Evans
I have seen some people answer people’s “how to earn money” questions on this site by referring them to such things as “Project Payday” and some other similar quick money schemes. I think the reason they are responding is because finding other people to do it is part of the way you earn money.
I did some research on Project Payday, and it is not as easy as it looks, and if you’re not extremely careful, it could cost you.
If you ever want to know more about other people’s experience with these things, type in business name (Ex: Project Payday) and Review. You can find forums that tell you more what it entails without having to join, and people’s remarks about their personal experience. It makes it all look so easy, but you really have to be careful.
If you want to earn money from home, I would suggest thinking of something creative that nobody else has come up with to sell, or, write a book about something you know about—there is a book at Amazon titled “Damn, Why Didn’t I Think of That”.
Ebay selling and dropshipping is also an option–people selling everything from electronics to yu ghi oh cards to bed sheets. Also, the craft business in America is a huge industry. Have you ever considered growing bonsai trees to sell or wood carving? Some people earn money from having a website. Maybe you are good at math and could offer math tutoring, or guitar lessons or repair people’s computer problems. Also, you can make money by having a webpage on squidoo.com.
There are so many possibilities.
