Raising a family calls for love and dedication. It requires twice as much love and dedication than what you have for your work or homebased business. Being employed in a 9 to 5 job is great. It boosts your confidence and it puts food on the table. It also pays the bills. But once you have a baby added to the family, you will eventually have to decide whether to keep that job and hire some help, or quit and stay home full time. Believe me, I’ve been there and it was a hard decision to give up my job.
If you are in that situation right now, then here’s how I can help. I’m going to list down 7 homebased business ideas that you can choose from. I’ve personally tried them. Now, I am happy with what I’ve chosen as business while working at my home office and watching my kids grow.

Online English Tutor
You can work with language schools in your country. Check out their job boards for available homebased tutor posts. Otherwise, if you have a good network of friends online, you can ask for referrals. If you are good with other subjects like Math, Science, or Physics, you can also offer those.
If you want to tutor homebased instead of online, you can definitely do that, too! Start talking to your friends, family members, and neighbors. Be ready to tutor both young and old. You’d be surprised how many you can tutor each day or week once the word goes out that you are offering such service.
Freelance writing is also very lucrative with hundreds of individuals and businesses looking to fill their websites with unique, original content. Choose which niche you want to concentrate on. Do you want to write on fashion? Are you good at producing Press Releases? Then start from there and slowly expand as you gain experience.
eBay or Amazon
Anyone can start an online shop on eBay or Amazon! That means you do not need a website to start selling. You can sign up on eBay or Amazon, or both, and start selling stuff you don’t need but are still good. You can sign up for free and start your homebased business on eBay and Amazon selling stuff you own or sell someone’s stuff to get commissions. But somehow, you will need to pay eBay or Amazon to maintain your account and get more eyeballs on your products.
Setting up a Facebook online shop is free. The good thing with using Facebook is you own your page and you choose when to pay for promotion. There is no maintenance fee. Your page can still be seen and you can freely promote it on your Timeline, in groups, or other pages that allow link sharing.
Research and Data Entry
There are people who need these services online. If you are good with research and compiling data into spreadsheets, then this may be a good homebased business to start. Research and data entry includes lead generation.
Do you have a good ear for videos and audios? Then you can start a homebased business as a transcriber. You can use free transcription software like Express Scribe for convenience. They have a paid version but I use the non-commercial version because it is free. You do not need a foot pedal for this but if you can get one, then do so.
There are, of course, other alternatives, but as you can see, these are easy to start homebased business ideas. They need less or no startup capitals (if you already have a computer and an internet connection).
