The Winey Wench is a fun cafe-style gift shop/art instruction class. One half of the shop features a huge wine selection and a store full of unique pieces of art and sculptures. The back half features our wild painting class. Our customers have a blast as we walk them through the picture of the day step by step until they have painted a masterpiece. With a little wine, everyone can paint a masterpiece! There is no experience needed!! Our classes are two and a half hours with plenty of cheer breaks to “drink up” while you are painting. We also give out samples of some of our unique and flavorful wines from all over the world throughout and we sell wine slushies by the cup if you want something a little different.

We’re all guilty of spending too much time on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest sometimes, so why not get paid to put your expertise to work as a side business idea? Lots of companies, especially startups or those in retail and travel—even influencers have heavy social media presences and are constantly in need of people to help build their brands online. You can find these types of opportunities on sites like Flexjobs and CareerBuilder and most employers on these websites are conditioned to working with people who operate these services as their side business idea.

Hi Meagan, OK I read all your article and it is full of info, thank you. I have a problem, when I fill out a survey form to apply they ask my age… not a big deal BUT I am 81 yrs old. I have all my marbles, not infirm ,do all my gardening myself and take care of husband, dog and house. So, after I have filled and sent the form off, I get a ‘not suitable for this survey’. My question is this, should I lie about my date of birth etc? am I totally redundant and without a meaningful opinion for these companies? Also the sites I visited they pay a mere pittance (25cents). I would appreciate your comments and help thank you.

Nothing beats playing your favorite game. But getting paid for coaching a sports team and staying close to the action is the next best thing. Not only will you learn new skills, you’ll earn money getting your team into shape with this side business idea. The median pay for sports coaches clocks in at $30,400 according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Expect to have only a slice of that if you’re signing up for part-time coaching as a side business idea only.

 While many start a home business to build or replace a full-time income, some people simply want to generate a little extra to pay debt, save for a rainy or use as mad money. In the past, people went out and got a second job. Fortunately, today, it’s easier than ever to save and make money from home, often doing activities you’re already doing, such as shopping or driving. Here are 7 ideas for making extra money from home

For a small fee, the ad says, you’ll make lots of money stuffing envelopes. But after you pay, you find out there is no work. Instead, you get a letter telling you to get other people to buy the same envelope-stuffing opportunity or some other product. You earn money only if those people respond the same way you did.

It’s easier than ever to make money from home. Whether you freelance for a larger company, answer surveys in your free time, or launch a home-based business, the options are nearly endless if you put your mind to it. And the best part about all of these options is that you can do more than one.

Do you love to shop? Offer your shopping services to others by looking for the best deals and then purchasing items either online or in store. This will save your client a ton of time; you can even offer to gift wrap presents for an additional charge.

Proper examination of the company financials (with the assistance of a professional accountant and/or business valuator) is vital before making an offer to purchase a business. (See How to Buy a Business.)
