Any good work at home programs?

I'm a SAHM and I'm considering doing something to generate some extra spending money out of my home. I have already applied to be an Avon rep. and I'd like to look into other companies that are similar.

I'm also NOT interested in any of the regular "scams" obviously :)

  • I work for ChaCha! and love it. Last week they opened hiring, but closed it again this week. I know they were flooded with applicants! You can read my journal entry about it and leave me a comment if you want me to send you a message when they start taking applications. It's an actual company. It's not a selling scam. You don't pay them any money. You have to apply, go through training, and pass a test before they will let you work. What I do is answer questions online that people text in with their cell phones :) It's fun!

  • I am a SAHM too and I work with a company that has all natural products from make up to household items. I am part of a group of moms that have found this company to be ethical and quite generous with their compensation. We support each other with free training, sites, and ongoing support/training. Follow my link to check out what we are about and see if we are a fit for you. Have a good night.

  • How are you? Its so good to hear that you would like to do something with your time. Its also good to work around the family and children. Thats what I am doing at the moment.
    But I guess there are alot of work at home on offer and you just have to find the right one.
    The company I do work for give us a 800.00 car allowance a month and have environmentally friendly products for the whole family., LIke for Asma, Arthritis, Etc.
    I enjoy and have met some nice ladies. When you can earn more money than your hubby thats exciting. Anyway hope this helps my web is
    Take care and be well. Wish you all happiness on your journey.

  • I do Tupperware from home and I LOVE IT!! you can check out all the info. Avon is really inexpensive to start up but I can't say what they give you to start. I can say Tupperware has a Business kit for $79.99 plus (your states tax) and you get a value over $350 worth of Tupperware and Supplies. It's an amazing kit. There are NO FEES after that unless you choose to have a website. We have a lot of bonus opportunities and you choose how to run your business and if you want to build a team that's up to you. Well I'm here to answer any and all of your questions. Let me know if you have any or would like more information. Good Luck on your search I hope you will consider the Tupperware opportunity. -Amy
