I'm an ENJO consultant
I can squeeze in one or two demos (2-3hrs each) a week, on a weeknight or weekend, plus outside orders and make a nice little stash for our entertainment fund...or things that aren't normally in the budget.
An extra $10,000 a year is EASY to do!!
...plus I'm saving the environment and saving people time which I personally love.
I run an internet marketing consulting business. I outsource the technical side of things and now have a team in the Philippines - so really I'm project managing the work now.
It does take a little time to learn the ropes - learning how a website should be designed so that it coverts well and also having an understanding of SEO (search engine optimisation) - but I don't do the grunt work!
It's quite lucrative work when you know what you are doing - and can be done in part time hours, even when the kids are sleeping during the day or night.
I found a law firm and commercial consultancy that don't have an office and have everyone work from home with remote hook-ups etc. The director is a mum of three so it was based around her when they first set it up. I started a little over a year ago but mostly went to client's offices to visit (I'm a construction contracts consultant, not a lawyer) as I got bored working from home, but not pregnant with bub #1 I am thanking my lucky stars I found this company!
I have thought of what else I would do though. Event planning would be great, and I've also thought of doing high-school maths and science tutoring.
I made a nappy cake for my nephew and was told that it was really good!
I decided to make a couple of nappy cakes and sell them through ebay as a bit of cash on the side but they really took off so I'm in the middle of setting up my own nappy cake company.
I also joined a couple of virtual pet sites online and joined some forums where you sell virtual currency for USD. That makes a lot of money and if you're able to put some money into it you can make a lot more in return. Unless you know computers really well I wouldn't recommend it as it involves a lot of programs and the use of proxy sites.
I also do web and graphic design, that's really popular and you make some really good $$$ out of it.
On average I usually earn $1000 a week doing this. I don't have to work from home cause hubby earns more than enough but I get bored and this is a hobby to me.
Sell on eBay
I'm starting up my own bookkeeping business. I hope it'll be good but I can't say it's as easy as what I first thought- there are a lot of insurances, registrations and qualifications that need to be filled. I'm hoping I can make something of it.
