Have you ever dreamed about starting your own business working from home? You could either earn some extra money on top of your normal day job or build up your business so that you quit your job. Imagine no more commutes into the office, be your own boss, work when you want to. Are there really work at home jobs & businesses out there through which you could achieve this dream?Just recently, with my daughter about to go off to college I started to consider this a little more seriously and started to think about what work at home jobs & businesses there are – not just online, but whether there is genuinely any business you can run from home which would earn you extra money. Are there really work at home jobs & businesses where I can earn enough money to pay all the bills and leave a little more besides? Here are my top suggestions:Internet Marketing – You can approach internet marketing in a number of ways but you basically sell other peoples products or your own products on the internet. Internet marketing is a great opportunity for work at home jobs & businesses because you can genuinely do it part time or full time and there is money to be made if you understand it and set it up correctly.Multilevel marketing (MLM) – I must admit I tend to avoid MLM schemes as I find them much too complicated, the whole premise seems to be attracting people to join the scheme under you. MLM schemes are very popular and do make people money so they may be just what you are looking for!Sell Stuff on eBay – There are many ways to earn money on eBay,from selling items you find around the house to a full blown power seller. This is a genuinely effective way of starting up a business from home. There are many resources now available on the internet which explain how to setup a successful eBay business.Look at Your Skills and Build a Business Around Them. Have you ever heard somebody say ‘I can’t believe I get paid for something I really enjoy’ and been very jealous. Well, it is possible to start a business around either your skills or something you genuinely enjoy either full or part time. For example if you like crafts then consider card making as a business opportunity? If you think you might like putting together gift baskets you could start a gift basket business. Likewise photography where the possibilities are endless. If you enjoy figures and maths why not start a bookkeeping business? Or childminding? Or proof reading? With the advent of the internet there are so many opportunities now available for work at home jobs & businesses just waiting for you to get started.
