All of these require a vendors license, DBA, and if you want employees a FEIN #, and a food handlers license.

Not a low cost start.

Sell some of the useless stuff you never use in a garage sale.

Click all the advertisment you can find on the internet that lets you win something, and add the prizes to your garage sale..

Get a cat, and post all the crazy video's on youtube for big clicks, more cats more clicks..

Or use this link, and see if there is an idea that suits you.

But you can sell the candies on line. Lollipops, Peanut and Almond brittle, ect . Come to think of it, I think I will look into it.

Also, you can sell stuff on Craigs list or have a yard sale.

The problem with Ebay is most people require a paypal account

Apple has a work-from-home program for their support team. They'll send you a free iMac and phone to work with, etc., and the pay's not terrible.

You can start selling Advocare. Not only is it a great diet supplement but it works with many people who are athletes already.

I think you have to have a license, from the health department,
to sell homemade food items to the public.Your kitchen would
have to be inspected and pass.I know how to get a kitchen ready
for a health inspection.I would still fail because I have 3 free roaming
cats in my house.
I had thought about selling fudge,cookies and homemade jellies and jams.
I looked up on the internet about getting my license to sell these items.
I would have to have doors installed to keep my cats out of the kitchen.
I don't have enough prep space either and struggle even now to prepare
food for my family.
The days of making money from a lemonade stand are gone.

Do you know that Japanese housewifes trading foreign exchange ?


Well, not a good example I guess

Here,
1. Gather lots of newspaper
2. Roll each piece into very small sticks - like you mouse wire size.
3. Once you have lots of it, shape/weave it into a vase / basket like
4. Use lacquer and treat it like wood basket/vase/container
5. Sell it as hand made handicraft - price is up to you.
6. Contact me for my paypal, I can accept less than $100 as thank you, no prob.

There you go,few bucks cost and a whopping $50 for each "artwork"

What I did for a while was go on Craigslist and look for online jobs, sometimes they are posted in big cities. This is what I would recommend the most.

I also tried Diablo III and trading penny stocks, neither of which worked well.

I would be careful about looking for a job on craigslist.
I live in ohio and this is the state of the craigslist killers.

I know a guy who designed an ap for smartphones who's making a couple grand a month selling them. People use his particular one to check the going price for used books they buy at library and garage sales. He's the sole 'servicer' of the ap and when people call and ask for such and such department or another, he waits a second and changes his voice a little... obviously, you would need a bunch of computer knowledge to do this but he says it's the new new thing...it's probably still a wide open field for those who can do this.

I've worked for over 25 years from home as a medical transcriptionist and it used to be good money. That's over now with voice recognition taking over. Now we mostly just edit what the computer does, and outsourcing has reduced the pay globally for everyone. While the Indian and Filipino services do a lousy job for the most part, they're willing to work for a few dollars an hour. Your medical record is probably being typed by someone in another country who barely knows English, much less medical terminology. (And just as an aside, you'd be astonished at how stupid a person can be, and still graduate from medical school...)

What I would recommend everyone look into, both for food security as well as business possibilities, is aquaponics, wherein you combine raising fish with raising water-rooted plants, using the fish water to water the plants. It can scale from a simple patio setup for your own use, to a large commercial operation making good money and can be a good use for otherwise lousy (and cheap) land. Can even be done on blacktop or in the desert and it uses a tiny fraction of the water normal farming does.

Food items and some crafts ,not all, have so much red tape, here in BC, its getting your foods safety course, and of course, there would be inspections, and pets not allowed, so my idea was, Homemade, makeups and cleaners for the home, with pure ingredients and no SLS, toothpastes too. And as money came in, try to also become a supplier of hair products colors that were cruelty free.

But there is creating something out of alternative materials, ie, not wood,for example,crafts, kits, and what this word really needs, and there can't be enough small buisnesses out there doing:

alternative energies.

greenpowerscience.com...
He sells some of his stuff on ebay.

Off grid solutions.

Growing planters and even living wall solutions for the winter months and selling them, bundles of heritage/organic, tomatoes, herbs, lettuce, peppers, for example,and others.

Online you need to have money to start a small store and it would be best to not need money, because it will take a while to grow customers who can find your product.

You can sometimes find those who drop ship their product to the customer so you don't need to stock up supplies.

I would always be careful on who is making the products. A friend found some good ones, good prices from China, including energy devices.

BUT......they don't have good human rights standards and I would never make moeny off exploiting people, so that eliminates a lot of retail.

If you can start a small store online and off, why not Fair Trade goods, like Fair Trade chocolate and coffee, the prices in the store is outrageous, so buying in bulk and having more reasonable prices might ensure success, over time.

Creating things from recyled products.

We're really short of media, news in print. Why not create newsletter, computer printout news papers, with a huge pullout section of local ads, so no charge, eventually delivered door to door as the ads come in.

Get alternative news and a real look at all sides of every issues, and solutions to people.

Food preparer's licenses are very easy to get, it's 10 bucks and an hour's test.

Look into borrowing or renting a church kitchen for food prep, or using the facilities of a local restaurant or bakery. Sometimes they'll let other people use their kitchen in return for a few dollars or a bit of the proceeds from sales. It seems that churches would be ideal, they could use the money and typically there's no one using them 6 days a week.
