Most of my girl friends have part time jobs in retail (on top of their "real" jobs, which are 40+ hours a week in career jobs). The problem with that is that 80-90% of their paycheck gets recycled into their employee discount.

I've considered getting a job at my yoga studio. You get one free class for every shift you work at the front desk!

You can also 'nanny' or 'elder-sit' part time. Use the site to advertise. Great $ in that.

If you're not a 501c3 corporation, you'll have a lot of 'spainin' to do to the IRS...

House cleaning is a good one if you're adept at it (not my cup of tea)

Some call centers, like Progressive Insurance, have work from home jobs, but there has to be a call center within reasonable driving distance, as you have to go into the office once in a while.
