Multiple Streams of Income

Here is one of the tips from my site about creating multiple income streams:

1. Find something that you’re good at and market it.

What are your strengths? What classes have you taken? Did you get an “A” in English? Can you type? Can you watch children a few days a week? Feel like tutoring? Can you handle cleaning some houses? There is a great list of legitimate work-from-home jobs at That list is NOT just for women…so men, make sure you check it out as well. This is where your most dependable and steady source of income will come from at first, so start here! Research your strengths online and start making calls and connections. Check your local classifieds and craigslist. Everyone needs some kind of help! Maybe YOU are the person they are looking for. Once you have income streams from #2 and #3 coming in, you can usually eliminate this first stream if it isn’t something you are passionate about…like cleaning house! Focus on this first stream for the first few months, though. As you are bringing in extra cash, you will be able to afford start-up costs for the next 2 streams of income. "

  1. I just found your site. I am a Christian, no kids though, so not a Mom. Unless you count taking care of my husband! LOL. I have a question for you about this list. Have you done any of them? Did you have success with any of them? I am trying to be able to work from home with my own business and would like to hear from others on what works, what doesn't. Thanks

  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by! And yes, I've had a lot of these things work for me personally and I've also made sure to only post things that women have actually had REAL success with on the website. I've had success personally w/ ebay (last year was a great year for me on ebay), freelance writing, baking and direct sales. I'm happy to answer any other questions you have. Just send me an e-mail! :-)
