Make money while staying at home by cashing in on your skills and starting your own at-hom business.
Spread the word
How to do it: Nothing sells as well you can, so print business cards and pass them out to everyone you meet.
Locally: Get involved with your chamber of commerce and attend events to build a local reputation. Advertise in newspapers and school newsletters, on craigslist.org, and on bulletin boards.
With your own blog: It’s simple and free to set up a blog at wordpress.com, where you can post updates and photos and link to a shopping site (see “Create a Storefront”). Another way to jump into the blogosphere is to link to other blogs—they might return the favor. You can find top-ranking blogs that cover products or services similar to yours at alexa.com.
