If you want to work from home, then starting an eBay business can be one of your best options. Signing up to become an eBay seller is free. When you sign up, be prepared to provide your basic information including name, address, email, banking account information, etc. It may also be beneficial to sign up for a free PayPal account as a simple way to receive payments for your products.
To get your business started, spend $20 or $30 dollars on your first sale items from flea markets and garage sales. Also, clean out your home and garage for extra goodies. Vary your selection of goods. eBay isn't all about antiques; some of the top sellers include albums, movies, computers, consumer electronics, vehicles and vehicle parts. Keep in mind that eBay does assess a fee for listing items, posting pictures, etc., but these fees are taken from the final sale price, so you do not have to pay anything out of pocket.
Freelance writing can be a lucrative business that you can start for little to no money. Begin your freelance writing career by searching for jobs at a local level. Many magazine and newspaper offices in your area may use the services of freelance writers to build their publication content. In many instances, writing for local publications can lead to steady, full-time work.
However, if you are looking for more freedom in your writing career, try searching online freelance job databases for work as a freelance writer. Many websites hire freelance article writers and bloggers to produce weekly or daily posts. Many of these job boards provide free access to their site, while others may charge a monthly fee of $9.99 or $19.95 to use their resources.
