If you really need to make some extra money, and don't want to waste your valuable time and money trying to figure out what kind of job you would like to do, then you should do research on the internet, or check out some books from your local library.
If you see an ad, advertising they need help making baby bibs or shoes, and you have to purchase the supplies through them, and they will usually tell you they do not meet their quality standards, when you try to send them the finished product, because they are really in the business of selling supplies and membership fees. So use some common sense, and check out each opportunity carefully. If it is usually to good to be true, it probably is. Most businesses are built up, over time.
You should see jobs that tell you how to start them, what the basics are, and how to make money at it. If you want to cook and bake your own muffins, or home dinners, and sell them to your neighbors to start up a small business, that just might work. If you want to buy some yard tools, and start up your own lawn business, you would probably do OK with that also. If you wanted to stuff envelopes for someone, changes are, they would just be selling you the materials, and you would get screwed in the long run!
You should be able to put together all the jobs you think you would have the most interesting and happiness in, since you should do what you like, and if you like it, you should do better in that job. If you hate your job from the beginning, why even go down that road then.
Beware of any company that wants you to send them money right off the bat. If you have to sign up for a membership fee, or pay dues, you should really check the company out thoroughly first before you send them anything.
You could do lots of work at home businesses, that start out small, from the living room to the garage, and then move into a small warehouse or store front, and then before you know it, you are national and have a chain or stores or a giant distribution warehouse, just like most honest businesses do. Just be careful who you send money to, that should be the first red flag you see!
