eBay is probably the quickest way to make money from home. If you have stuff to sell that others want to buy, whether new or used, you can usually make sales within a couple of days depending upon how you set up your auction. But, unless you’ve really got a LOT of stuff sitting around that you need to sell and it’s selling well, you probably aren’t going to make a lot of money quickly with eBay.
With that said, there are a lot of people that are making a great living selling on eBay. Many people use eBay as an extension of their brick and mortar or online store. Unless you are selling foods, guns, or something else that eBay forbids, there is really not a good reason to not take advantage of the marketing power of eBay. Of course, some items will sell better than others, but there are really not items to small or too big – from jewelry to cars and from tools to antiques – most all types of items can be sold on eBay.
Technology has made it much easier for us to work from home, even when we have an employer. Some employers are more open to telecommuting than others. It just depends on the employer and how much they trust you to get your work done from home.
To me, it’s more about time freedom and financial freedom. Freedom. Telecommuting is a great way to help you get to where you want, but it’s not the end goal to freedom. It’s a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there!
If you have a lot of knowledge in a particular area, or if you are dedicated to becoming the expert in a particular area, or even if you are good at pulling the right experts together, you can create a membership site. Or better yet, you just have to build a community around members who are interested in talking about the same topic. Once your community gets big enough and has enough valuable information to make it a ‘members only’ community, you can start charging a monthly subscription.
