    Dear Indus Ladies,

    I am a working person here in USA. I wanna earn few more bugs at my spare time to meet my needs (after work / weekends). I know earning rules of a h1 holder. but wanna give a try. I am thinking of a job which pays me cash this way no pay roll runs.
    I am thinking of babysitting (after work), store works etc. But i do not know how to proceed with those works.
    Can someone provide me suggestions and advises on this.

    Thank you!

    There are a number of things you can do that will offer cash and can be done after hours -

    1 - baby sitting
    2 - giving tuition to school kids, teach them to read/ write other languages, singing dancing depending on what your talents are.
    3 - cooking meals/ food/ e.g. making and selling chappatis, making food/ snacks for people's party's like samosas etc.
    4 - you can also look for markets/ side walk sales held in your area and set up a stall to sell stuff.
    5 - set up an online store where you advertise things and when ordered you merely pass on orders to suppliers and get a commission.
    6 - you can do tailoring/ alterations
    7 - you can start doing ladies parlor work in your house or go to other people's house for things like waxing, mani pedi eye brows henna designs etc..
    8 - do groceries for people with an extra charge per trip, like for old people or busy working people.

    whatever you decide to pursue, make some flyers and post them around your area - schoold, apartments, bus stops, local community center, library etc.

    Good Luck.

    Hi Shaytel,

    These are really very good ideas. I will try some of these ideas. you really boosted me.
    i can do most of them except parlor service. Are there any training courses provided for threading, waxing, manicure and pedicure. i live in philadalphia.

    Thank you
    SmartLady

    just my 2 centes since you said you live in philly. i dont know your exact location but i would suggest staying away from any ofnthese PTs in bridgeport, norristown areas unless you know the people you work for really well. just scary neighborhoods in general.

    There will be training courses, albeit expensive, but the upside is that you will be trained and certified so you can work at the upscale places not sure if they will take you for cash though!

    Another thing one of my friends do is order jewelery (artifical) from India and sells it through her friend network. She gets her relatives to courier the stuff to her.
