Hey Guys,

Just thought I put in my cents worth of the subject to earn additional income.

Home based business had been proven successful for decades now. If you do have any ideas not listed here, do list them down as well

(1) EVENT PLANNING- You should plan first if you decide to do niche like - coporate parties, seminars/conferences, road shows, weddings. Event Planners need to constant research on places, prices, databases etc...

(2) FINANCIAL PLANNER-I think its a great way to assist people in planning for their finances as well as earning money.

(3) UPHOLSTERING- If you have a knack for sewing, upholstery repair might be a perfect business for you. Have a list available of furniture repair people you can recommend to your customers

(4) USED BOOK SALES- Almost everyone (myself included) has a few boxes of books stashed away either in their houses and offices. Offer to remove the unwanted books from them and go through them. Star an E-bay account and sell them. (I know someone who is doing this as a full time employment)

(5) PHOTOGRAPHER- There are niches you can explore for photography: portraits of people and their pets, families, and homes; photographs of holiday events, birthday parties or Christmas cards; the possibilities are endless

Hey, if you have any other great home based business ideas, why not just share it with us

To your success

There is an opportunity that allows you to work with a fortune 500 manufacturer and set up consumer accounts for them. Incredible from home opportunity and is residual income!!! It is a real business with a real business plan.

I bake cakes for the occasional birthday party. I charge less than a wal-mart would and have a lot of fun doing it also :)

I also bake pies and sell them to local diners-if you make a mean chocolate pie with pretty merangue why not share? I get $8-10 per pie and they sell by the piece in the stores for $2.99/slice and get 8 slices.

Talk to local bus. about selling premade breakfast items. My brother used to work construction and my sil got the foreman's premission to bring sausage and biscuts and breakfast burritos out to the work site and sell them. She started out small (5 biscuts, 10 burritos) and ended up making 30-40 of each daily and taking them to several sites. She was making about $475 a week doing this.

Tutor college students. I am a full time student and very anal about my grades. I have had luck tutoring other students for small fees or bartering for services (I traded for a biology book that cost $280 new in exchange for helping someone study for finals-they needed an A to pass the class and it happened!)

I have TONS of books, both paperback and hardback. Wonder if selling them on e-bay would be worth the time.....
