Though this is basically the same as above, it does deserve its own description. Finding someone to regularly watch children during off-hours, like second shift, weekends, or very early mornings, can be extremely difficult for parents. Offering care during off-peak hours means that you can command a higher fee.

I really appreciate all the hard work you put into this list. I never knew there were so many options. I have worked my entire life and am currently a undergrad in Business MGMT/Healthcare. In 2014, my 20 yr old son became a quadriplegic. For the first time, in many years, I am a stay at home mom. At 38, I have spent too many years being independent to feel comfortable relying on my husband. You have given me hope and a starting point. Thank you
curious and interested. And, by the cryptic vagueness of your remark/comment, it sounds as if you would be happy to share your success with others…..or am I wrong? If you are able to actually see my email, feel free to use it to communicate with me, should you decide you are willing to share your discovery. If not, I understand and goof luck!

How we went from $0 to $140,000 in only 6 months, with NO internet marketing: In the fall of 2013 Gregg & Ron were putting together the final plans for a large pole barn when, at the last minute, the bank pulled financing leaving the company stranded through the winter. Out of desperation they decided to create a wood-framed carport based on the large pole-barn design. Basic ads and pictures were creating hoping to generate a few sales. When 47 orders immediately flowed in they were excited about the newly discovered market but also realized that it would take many months to fulfill so many orders. Within a year they were averaging 6 carports per month in their small market, most of them during the construction season. Since that time, the design has been perfected, the manufacturing streamlined, and the profit doubled. $100,000 net annual income is very possible, working only 6-8 months. This Easy-to-Follow Business Plan shows you exactly what you need to each step along the way. Plus we’ll even provide on-going support if you need it. The information uses actual historical sales and business experience to help make you successful. Your satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed! These wood-framed Viking Carports and Boat & RV Covers fulfill a large market demand not met by any other competitor. They are the quality of a Custom Wood-Framed Cover, but at 1/2 the price…and better looking than a cheap metal carport. The unique Viking Cover design is not allowed to be copied by any other company. Counterfeit designs will be investigated and prosecuted to the full extent allowed by law, making your investment secure!

This often includes a computer with pre-installed software, various types of hardware, and accessories. Such packages are commonly called appliances. A website with a ready-made solutions and some configurations is called a turnkey website.

Sure, there are a lot of graphic designers out there, but there are far more Websites, companies and organizations in need of design work than there are designers. That’s the good news.

I am glad the information is helpful, Gwyn. Yes, each one of us value our time differently, that’s why I try to always include various opportunities so everyone can find one that fits them personally.
For example, home-based call-center agents now account for nearly one-fourth of all call center agents in the U.S. and Canada. According to the 2009 book Undress for Success (playing off the idea that you can work from home in your PJs), “all of the more than 200 people who answer the phones for JetBlue Airlines work from home in locations all over the country … [And] LiveOps’s 16,000 call center agents field everything from restaurant takeout orders to insurance questions, all from the comfort of their homes.”

Assume you use 40% of your house for a day care business that operates 12 hours a day, five days a week for 50 weeks of the year. That’s 3,000 hours out of the total of 8,760 hours in the year. That’s 34% of the available hours, so your business write-off percentage is 13.6% (40% of 34%).
Franchises are typically turnkey business, but any existing business that’s already up and running successfully or a new business whose doors are ready to be opened could be considered a turnkey business.
Preparing to open a business can take hundreds of hours and delay opening for weeks or months, while a turnkey operation is ready to go now. Another advantage is the freedom from all the restrictions a franchise puts on the business (although those are intended to help the business be successful). Not having to pay royalties can also be a plus, although the flip side is no ongoing support from a franchisor.
Vending machines, breath analyzers, and its variants are common in public places such as bars, hostel dorms, pubs, nightclubs, discos, sports bars, casinos, pool halls, pizza parlors, college hangouts, country clubs, hotel bars, amusement parks, baseball parks, boat marinas, and other places.
Franchise businesses are typically very restrictive – the owner has much less control on how the business is managed and operated versus an independent business. (See Should You Buy a Franchise?) For instance, the contractual requirement to purchase equipment and supplies from head office means you cannot obtain these items from less expensive sources.
So much good information! Obviously I think I’m more suited to certain ones off this list, but I definitely saw this as a great jumping off point. Your views and insight really helped me to put a value on my time for each website. For example, knowing I’d get 2 pennies for a 90 second song review helped me realize that wasn’t going to be a fun one for me. However, Qmee and being paid 2 pennies for a google search I’d do anyway is definitely one I value more.
