  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!
    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.
    I had searched for a work at home job for two years. This had proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I'd come across were scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.
    I am so blessed to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!

  • Hello, my name is Amber. I work along side a company called Ameriplan. What we do is help families that do not have medical coverage like Dental, Vision, Medical, RX and so on. They can get it throught us as low as $20.00 to no more than $60.00 a month for a entire family. We don't do any cold calling unless the person as asked for a interview, no parties, nothing to sell, and we don't deal with any money. If this is something that sounds like you would like to do. Please feel free to contact me. I will answer any questions that you may have.
