To start your own online business all you need is an idea of what you would like to sell. You can sell items that you make, or you could sell items that you buy and sell them for a higher price then you bought them for. Make sure that your website is both catchy and can easily identify what it is you are selling.
Writing articles is a great way that you can make money. You get to choose the amount of articles that you want to write every week, and you get to choose the hours that you want to work. You even get to choose what articles that you want to write so that you do not write about something you do not agree with. Blogging is similar to article writing but you get to blog about anything that you want to.
If you do not like the idea of working online then starting your own daycare or at home babysitting service is a great idea. You will have to get many certifications stating that your home is safe and that you know what you are doing, but if you love children then this is a great job. Make sure that you have an inside and outside play space for them, and enough people to watch over the children if you are planning on having a large babysitting service. All of these are great work from home opportunities.
