    Most of them are scams. You can do freelance editing or line editing/proofreading if you're good in grammar, etc. You can get into daycare. You can do medical transcription, though those jobs are difficult to find now.

    Others here may have better ideas.

    I sold Avon when I had littles at home. I also ironed clothing for neighbors.

    Some things allow you also to take child with you. House cleaning, baby sitting other children.

    As noted most interent things are just scams.

    While not "at home" I do things like house inspections for banks on foreclosure, secret shopping.

    My niece is a stay-at-home mom and sells Rodan + Fields skin care products. You can check their site for more information. It looks like there's a purchase of a $45 Business Portfolio to "allow" you to become a consultant.

    Since routine child care requires a license and very specific building space, I would just advertise that you will babysit in your home.
    I have sold items on ebay for many years, although much less than I used to, as fees and shipping keep increasing, as does competition.
    Just buying items at the end of a holiday and saving them to sell a year later can work well. Or making seasonal items, if you are crafty. Christmas place mats, pot holders, etc., always listed about 3-4 weeks before people shop in stores. It takes time to get paid and ship.
    I used to find good deals in TJMaxx. Not so much later.
    I did pretty well with old silver dollars, but it took good forecasting of prices. I bought large lots and sold them individually. This also takes a good knowledge of photography.
    Actually selling online has a steep learning curve.

    I am shifting to working at home too and I am using online job platforms that offer jobs. Just beware of scam jobs. Try well-known sites such as Upwork, they offer legit jobs so far.
