50K a year working from home


Are you getting tired of the daily rat race? Do you want to spend more time with your family and work the schedule that you like? Yes, I did say work; its a nasty word but someone’s got to do it. If you think you can be dedicated and spend the right amount of time, the sky is the limit! In this article, we’ll explore how you can maybe get to the place you want to be.

So you ask is it really possible to make 50k a year from home? I totally believe so, I have tested the water with home-made art and home decor. I started with old mailboxes, we got them for free! We chalk painted them, threw on a vinyl graphic printed off the Cricut machine. They all sold at a craft fair for $40 each, we made and sold 10.  People buy and use them as umbrella stands or other decor storage. If you read my side cash basic’s post you’ll learn more about how to get started and the pitfalls to avoid. Soon we grew into jewelry and windchimes made from old silverware, that we sell thru 10 different shops and weekend shows throughout the Northwest. To get started…

Our startup involved a small investment into supplies and tools, but before you get to that point.  You have to find your niche and locate stuff that will make you money. I suggest going to some shows and looking at what other people are making and selling, yes selling, not people just walking by and looking. Another hustle I want to write about in this post is online sales, you can make bank doing this, you just need to look in the right places to locate stuff to list and sell. One of my favorite places is…

The Goodwill outlet in our hometown, the place is as big as a football field and fresh stuff being rolled out every 20-30 minutes. I can usually locate a half-dozen items for eBay within a short period of time. We once found an operational vintage Oster brand mixer/blender combo, for one dollar. After a short look on ebay located a bowl and mixer beaters online cleaned the unit up really good and ebay’d it for $125. Whatever route you choose to make your fortune, make sure you pay attention to all the other stuff you have going on in your life. And whatever you do, don’t quit your day job!
