5 Work At Home Jobs That You Can Do Part-Time

I firmly believe that everyone should have a side job. Let's face it, the majority of problems in this world require money to solve them. Sometimes your regular job just isn't enough to cover all those expenses that life continually throws at us. That is why everyone needs a second source of income. Think of it as a profitable hobby!

1. Crafting
This is a category with almost unlimited possibilities. Many people supplement their income by making various crafts in their home and selling them. There are some who make simple decorative crafts, and others who make useful items like tools and gadgets. If you can make anything of value, it can probably be sold. The only difficult part is finding a place to sell your goods. You can sell art and art supplies online at and its various clones. Local events are also worth considering. If you happen to own a 3-D printer, your manufacturing ability becomes even greater.

2. Consulting
Consulting careers can be another way to make money on the side. A consultant is just someone who gets paid to give advice. Naturally, you need to have the experience and expertise to give valuable advice. But, as the saying goes, everyone is an expert on something. There are many types of consulting, so there is at least a decent chance that you will qualify for one of them. However, becoming a consultant is another story. Consulting careers tend to pay very well, so competition is fierce. Your best bet here is to start by finding out as much as you can about the different types of consulting so that you can concentrate your efforts where they are most likely to be fruitful.

3. Call Marketing
Ok, this one won't be popular with everyone. However, it is an option to be considered. You can make money from home in your spare time by doing telemarketing. I personally don't like this one because I am no good at it. However, you might find it to your liking. You can make pretty good money if you can actually talk people into buying what you're selling. Usually, you will make a certain amount of money per call with a commission added if you sell the product.

4. Tech Support
If you have the knowledge, this can be an excellent way to make a few extra bucks. Some companies will pay you for answering technical support calls. Most of the time, these positions involve giving advice on the proper use of computers or computerized devices. Therefore, those who do not have solid computer skills will not be able to do this. Another downside is that you will need to be on call for most of the day.

5. Pet Trade Breeding
There will always be a demand for pets. Although pets are technically a non-essential item, this industry is unlikely to go anywhere. There are several things to consider when deciding if this career is right for you. First, you need to look at your space. You will also need to look at what type of animals you wish to breed. Larger animals generally bring more money but require a lot more space. For instance, if you want to breed dogs, you had better have a large yard. You will need to set up large, secure kennels, and you will need enough of them to separate the males and females when you don't want them to breed. You will also be spending a lot more on food. Those without the space to breed dogs could do fish, frogs, lizards or even insects.
