There’s much to be said for working from home – no traffic jams, no need to leave home early, no bickering with auto-drivers, no office politics…If you have the discipline to dedicate a few hours every day to work, there are plenty of opportunities to earn from home. Some might involve a little travel, but it’s not a daily affair. Be prepared to earn a little less- but the quality of life should make up for the loss of income. Take a look at some options for home-birds.

The subjects in demand these days are Mathematics, French, Physics, Statistics, Chemistry and Biology. The advantage is that you can teach part-time (4 hours a day) or full time (9 hours).
If you network, you can earn above 3,000$ per assignment. Many booming sectors in the economy, particularly IT, ITES, insurance, retail and banking, have manpower scarcity. If you tie up with institutes to organize their campus placements or get database of people looking for jobs and help organizations find the right people, you can make a fat packet.

And the buying need not be a problem; frequent auctions, garage sales and sales by embassies or large companies can get you almost anything for half the value.
Offer a gift-wrapping service, either in association with neighbourhood retailer or on your own. You can earn above 1,000$ per month, depending on the demand and your offering.
