What is your Plan B? Five interesting ways to make money from home

I’m a huge advocate for creating additional ways to make an income. No jobs are 100% safe, so it’s important that you have a Plan B in place to protect you.

So today I’ve decided to put together a list of things I’ve done or things others have done, in order to create and additional income. Some of these may work for you, some won’t.

I just hope that by reading through these ideas you’re inspired to take some action to protect yourself and your family from suffering what so many have, when a job is lost…

Ok, so here are some ideas that may spark some interest!

  1. Affiliate sales – selling another company’s products from your own website, and receiving a commission on sales. I have a site that promotes and sells a workout program, as well as protein and other supplements.
  2. Selling your own items – on eBay, sites like Gumtree (in Australia), or your own website. A good cull of what’s in your house might be a good way to get started, then go from there.
  3. MLM (Amway) – Ok ok, Amway has gotten a bit of a bad name over the years, and unfortunately due to the few who believe that “tricking” people into seeing the business plan is an ethical way of doing things, people are wary. I’m in Amway but not for the business side. I’m in there for the various products I like to buy from them. I have friends who have become quite successful in the business side of things with Amway, and this company has been around for 50+ years, so there’s a lot of credibility there.
  4. Freelance writing – I did this for a while, and still have a few clients who I write for. I write content for websites, I write ebooks, and I even write tweets for Twitter, or Facebook posts. If you want to learn more about how I got started with this, please contact me.
  5. MLM (World Ventures) – This one is by far my favourite, and is definitely showing signs that it’s going to be “the one” for me. It’s based on cheap travel (what’s not to like about that??) and the concept is easy to “sell”. In fact, there really is no “selling” at all. You just show people the promo video and they decide for themselves if they like it. If they do, they sign up. If they don’t, then they don’t. Easy!

So there you have it – five interesting ways to make money from home.
