Five Ideas for the Work at Home Parent


1. Online Sales

You can sell products and services on major websites like ebay, etsy, craigslist, and Amazon.

It's easy enough to acquire like-new merchandise priced well below wholesale, once you know where to look.

Start by rummaging through your attic, visiting local garage sales, scouting thrift stores, attending flea markets, and buying from manufacturers or wholesale factory outlets.


Here are some discount factory outlet malls and wholesale distributors located in the state of Georgia.

  • Sugarloaf Mills in Lawrenceville has 173 different stores.
  • North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawsonville has 140 shops to choose from.
  • Calhoun Premium Outlets in Calhoun has 49 stores.
  • Darien Outlet Center in Darien has 29 stores.

2. Scan Craigslist.

This is probably the surest way to be successful as a Work at Home Parent.

Visit the pages pertaining to your city and surrounding areas. Click on Jobs, then check the Gigs section. Apply for all appropriate positions that pay fairly.

Check Craigslist every day, and you may actually get enough paid gigs to support yourself reasonably well.

Be sure to include an error-free cover letter, and Create a Professional Resume. 





3. Contact Big Businesses.

Large companies throughout the state of Georgia have many work from home positions to fill, such as phone work, database management, marketing, promotion, accounting, data entry, and internet research, among other things. 

All the better are your chances if you have special skills, such as software applications, web design, and writing.

  • Aflac Insurance

  • Athens First Bank in Athens
  • Bank of North Georgia

4. Build a Website.

Building one's own website is the most important thing any business professional can do to grow a successful business.

Look up web building packages online. Choose a well reputed, all-inclusive, do-it-yourself software package that costs no more than $300 a year to maintain, and offers ongoing tech support.

Having someone build a website for you can be prohibitively expensive, and may or may not earn money.

You can even hang signs around town and get business cards made. 

Work hard from home and financial success can be yours, on your terms.
