Use your past work or hobby experiences to operate an Internet business from home.
- EBOOK PUBLISHER
Informational "How To" eBooks are hot. Anyone can easily produce one and set up a system to sell as my free 7 Step Strategy eBook points out. (see below) Are you a great salmon fisherman? Put together a report on "My Secret to Catching Salmon - Guaranteed" for instance. Ideas are limitless.
- AFFILIATE PROGRAMS
If you don't think you can write your own eBooks or create some other product to sell on the Internet, then sign up as an affiliate to sell products of other businesses.
- DESKTOP PUBLISHER / WRITER / GRAPHIC ARTIST
Creative? Provide collateral material for company websites, public relations, brochures, catalogs, newsletters, etc. Advertise your services at Guru.com and Elance.com.
- VIRTUAL ASSISTANT
If you have top administrative and organizational skills, this would be a natural "job" for you. Think "executive secretary" or "administrative assistant" and all that comes with it. With the downsizing of many companies, more work is being contracted out and also more employees are telecommuting.
- DISTANCE LEARNING
This is a growing industry. Use your experience to teach courses on-line with the use of teleconferences or webconferences.
- PERSONAL OR CAREER COACH
Money magazine cited coaching as one of the fastest growing professions next to management consulting and is an excellent home business. From skills and experience you have developed in your own life, you can potentially be a great "coach" to others. Get certified on-line and "hang out your shingle"!

- ON-LINE AUCTIONS (Ebay)
Get involved in the biggest "flea market" in the world. Almost anything imaginable is for sale. Are you skilled in evaluating antiques? Selecting items at garage sales or antique shops and then reselling them on Ebay is one way to get started.
