    I would actually rent a room by adjusting myself, because it does not require any work to do and will be giving us money by doing nothing

    I especially like #4. Teaching people how to do ecommerce makes a lot of sense, especially with sites like Amazon and Ebay.
    My personal favorite is teaching folks a simple way to make money with just a computer and internet connection.

    A lot of people are making money through Mercadillo5.com, selling their services as freelancers. Also, they can make money a passive way due to the potent affiliate program they have for all users.

    Joel, I really enjoy your website! These are all good ways to make money from home. One my wife is currently working on is combining her love of baking with her passion for writing. “erinsbakeshop.com” is the address. It’s just getting started but check back for more new recipes! Shameless plug? definitely :) Gotta start somewhere! Being comfortable with the uncomfortable is essential for success! (99.9% certain I got that from this website somewhere!)
