I am looking for genuine work from home opportunities (no survey suggestions as that’s not really work. No party plan suggestions as I don’t drive) I’m not very skilled at crafty things and have back and hip problems, so I can’t really do much. Can anyone suggest something I could do?

  • Would love to know how you are going with job ideas for home?

  • CareerJet typing sounds good :) I’m going to check it out too x

  • Babysitting! Great rate and a few dollars in pocket
    Ironing service. You pick it up and drop off. Lot of people still love their ironing done.

  • What do you like to do? What kind of work have you done before? Do you have any qualifications?

    There are a million and one ways to start making money from home, and setting up a small, professional business can cost you less than $100. But it needs to be doing something that you enjoy / see the value in or you won’t have the desire to see it through.

    You can find a free business ideas workbook on my website (goofysmile.com.au) which will get you thinking about some businesses you can start.

    But love to throw some ideas your way – just need to know what you’re keen on. I’m not arty or crafty and I run two successful home businesses. I love writing which helps, but there’s plenty of other things you can do even if you’re not a fan of that :-)

  • Hi. I work a part time business around my current job. I help people start their own luxury travel business. As per any business it does require start up costs. If you would like some further information you can have a look around my website http://www.onholidays24-7.com. If you would like to put in your details then it will direct you to an automated business presentation that will show you exactly how everything works.

  • you could always cook from home if you are in the right area. get people to drop in, pay you and they take a meal from you.

  • can you type? there are plenty of type from home jobs for medical and legal companies. Try googling CareerJet typing at home. My friend did this for about a year while at home when she had her son.

  • Is ironing from home a possibility? This is a job that can be modified for back and hip problems. Also; what type of work do you enjoy doing? Computer based work or physical/hands on work? This information may help with answers. :)

  • Register to be a family day care mum, you get to assist with income and you get to have little playmates for your child/ children. Very rewarding without any cost to prepare.
