  • Hello! I'm a work-at-home mom as an independent demonstrator for Gold Canyon. Have you heard of them? Do you like amazing fragrances?

    I've been with them for just about two years now and absolutely LOVE what I do! It's kind of funny really though, because I swore I would never sell anything, so sometimes even today I'm amazed that I'm doing this and I'm having so much fun. I do in home open houses, catalog shows and a significant portion of my business is done via my website. 

    Right now you could even kit your start up kit for FREE!  It's really a great deal.  Please email me at or PM for more information.  I'd love to see if this may be a good fit for you!

  • I have a home buisness with Ameriplan. Its not hard but you do have to treat it like a business and that means you actually have to WORK. And thats the same as with ANY home business. If you treat it like a business, it will pay you like a business!

  • I have my own business with Tupperware and LOVE it. I wouldn't have changed any decision I have made for the world. It allows me to have the flexablity that I has always wanted. I would love to tell you more about Tupperware.

  • Yes, not very difficult to start, but not craft-related. I have a green business and I also run a work from home resource site.

  • I have a friend who makes hair assessories in her basement and sells them to upscale children's boutiques. I work out of my home doing freelance bookkeeping and business organization, along with career and job search coaching; I help job seeking with resumes, coverletters and job search tactics.

  • I have a business with Ameriplan. I work it 99% from my computer and love what I do. It was really super easy to get started and only took me about an hour to get the websites and basic training done.
    I work about 2-4 hours a day from my computer, an hour a day from the phone, and then do my training while I'm cleaning or playing with the kids. Every trip to the store or walk with the kids is a chance to grow my business... But when you love what you do it's not really work is it?
