Make money while staying at home by cashing in on your skills and starting your own at-hom business.
How to do it: If your town has an online message board, check groups and discussion threads for customers or use physical bulletin boards at coffee houses and community centers. Meetup.com can help you reach people with mutual interests. Search Google Groups for a community related to your product. Designers can bid for projects at 99designs.com. Sell your administrative, technical or creative services to clients on elance.com and guru.com.
