  • I do a variety of work at home jobs. I found out a long time ago that it's a bad idea to have all my eggs in one basket. I guess it would come down to how much time you have available and how much time you spend on each business.

  • i guess it would depend on what your business is. for example, if your business is comprised solely of running a website, then you might be able to take on another. if your business is sewing, ebaying, etsying, and constantly shipping out new orders, then you might NOT be able to take on another.

    i run a photography business on the side and i find it exhausting. (of course, i am pregnant w/ #4, but shhhh.) :) i couldn't imagine taking on another job!

  • I have two of them and it is not too hard as long as you keep things organized for both business' like reciepts for taxes and things like that. I make great money at both of them and I love to stay busy so it is alot of fun for me. I sell Lia Sophia jewelry and Gold Canyon candles and both are super easy to sell, they sell themselves. So I would say no it is not that hard to have two business'.

  • Depends on the payout - compare compensation plans and if one pays more - maybe you should consider focusing on that one.

    Work for Yourself and help others do the same.  Check out our compensation plan - it's one of the best out there.
