Today there are many Dad's who are trying to start their own business while staying at home.  Many are eager to try anything to generate money.  Does anyone have suggestions on good home based businesses for stay at home Dad's?  Is there anything out there that can generate a significant amount of cash for someone watching the kids at the same time?

My girlfriend's father started selling itmes on ebay.  Most of the items were clothes, shoes, and jewlery.  As time went on, he expanded it to include computer hardware, CD's, computer printers, fax machines, and scanners.  I don't know if he made a lot of money doing it, but he looked very happy with the results.

Your own business, no matter how small that it. But you'll have to come up with a great and profitable idea of course.

Pretty much any home business can be worked around family commitments but the amount of time you have to spend on the business and the quality of your idea will both impact on the income that you make. Working for yourself carries greater risk but also greater reward (if it works out).  An alternative is to do work for others.  Quite often home businesses are linked to the Internet and technology so you need to be quite comfortable with this.

There is quite a good article here about choosing your career and many of the ideas will apply equally to what you might do as a home business.

One thing to really avoid is those get rich quick schemes.  Mostly you can spot them because they ask you for an amount of money up front - often not too much - and then say that if you follow the advice they will send you, then you will earn thousands.

This is an interesting one for me because when my husband and I had daughter no.2, extra child care just wasn't a financial option (those of you, like me, who have been stung by the Uks WFTC system will know what I mean!). At the time, I had a very well paid job in HR so I needed to return to work which meant that my husband was the one who stayed at home to look after the girls. He used his army training to start a domestic ironing service. We're now 18 months down the line and his business is still going and doing very well and he still runs it from home.
There are a couple of good sites to offer information if you want to work from home although I agree with Seb - don't' fall into the trap of these 'get rich quick' schemes, they are very rarely genuine opportunities. I wrote a blog post on this very thing a short while ago with some good links. (http://conceptcv.typepad.com/conceptcv/2007/09/britain---a-nat.html)
