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 http://www.theworkathomewoman.com/wah-jobs/ 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. "
