...and a lot of them are not willing or able to invest a lot of startup money in an online job working from home. I'm here to help out, so here is a rough guide on how to start an inexpensive online work from home business... ...with just a little money on basics--such as web hosting, domain names and so on.

  • The first and most important thing to do is to make a list everything you know.
  • What skills do you have? What are you good at?

    You may have picked up skills through...

    your day-to-day routine (like cooking, for example)

    from your job--hands-on knowledge in a specific niche Also include on your list your hobbies and interests (an example--golf. Spend about an hour jotting everything that comes to mind.

  • Once you have a list, take note of all skills or knowledge that you have. It's probably more than you would've thought!
  • Also notice any knowledge base you have that might be in demand elsewhere...
  • For example, say that you love to golf and do it every weekend,

    Not only that, you also subscribe to several magazines about the sport...

    ...You read golf books about technique

    ...You watch Tiger and Phil on all the PGA events on TV

    ...You even have been on a golf vacation (or have dreamt about it!)

    Why then--that makes you an expert in golf!

    You might then start an online work from home business by writing... online blog...

    ...teaching people about the game, the rules, scoring, the pros, etc.

    Best of all, you do not need to spend money to acquire this knowledge--you already have it! And you can start a blog with $0!

  • So once you've put yourself online, you can then position yourself to start earning money...

...using your list of already existing skills in your passions and interests!

Again, using the golf example, here are some ideas...

...offer an online golf class for kids,

...teach stuff about your golf to people who are interested in the sport,

...start an online golf club--excuse my pun! and, can write guides or booklets on knowledge or skills you picked up through your own experiences--for cash!--which stand out from the crowd.
