How can I make money from home....

if I'm not a good sales woman? I am not one who can ask people to buy a product from me. I've done every kind of direct sales you can think of. Any advice? I can not afford to pay to work at home nor do I think I should have to. I'm a single mom of 4 so please only things that can truly help.

  • i have been working for Mark. (a part of avon) for about 4 months now and its not going too bad, they let you have a shop online, so no direct marketing (which i completely suck at too lol). i started posting and looking on craigslist for people who needed care for their children, i now watch 2 extra children 5 days a week, i feel its the best way to pull my weight around the house and still b able to be with my babies

  • If you Love Candles the Gold Canyon might be a great opportunity for you. I started in January and because I love their product it was a perfect fit for me. Find what you lie first, mine was candles. i love everything about them. Gold Canyon has a huge selection of scents along with a all natural cleaning line called Homeology. I have found (without doing any home parties) that this product does sell itself. You can take a look at my web site, ask me any questions you may have.

  • I'm not sure if what I'm doing can help, but I just got hired with a company to work from home and will start orientation next week. It requires a background check, but other than that, there is no investment. If you are interested, PM me and I'll send you more information. I tried cashcrate and the survey sites already, they did not work for me, but if you think you can do it go to for more information and ways to earn money.

  • I am a work from home mom and I am partnered with a Wellness company that distributes eco-friendly products. My daughter has never gone to daycare because I found a real work from home job. I do not sell. I do receive a check once a month. I do have a website that you could go to if interested......  

    This company is a member of the Better Business Bureau.

  • Hi! If your not comfortable selling you will probably be interested in what I do. I have found a business that has worked better for me than anything I have even tried, it is called My World Plus. It is a discount membership site with over 600 name brand stores.The stores offer awesome savings, and pay cash back for shopping online. Plus they have an amazing compensation plan for referring people to shop online. I spend 1-2 hours a day working(it doesn't even feel like work). I love it! There are no meetings, Absolutely NO selling, No inventories, No cold calling. There is a lot of money to be made just by changing where you shop. Take a look! If you have any questions just let me know.Best of Luck finding something that works for you!

  • When you answer the above questions you can start to see what you would really like to do. When you discover that you can choose what kind of business would best suit you.

    You can decide to start your own business and let people know what you are good at so if they need help they can get it from you.

    Do not be afraid of having your own business they are work like any business in direct selling and at an office however they can help you stay at home with your children too.
