  • Direct sales is working for me! It could be a good fit for you too. I'm with a company called Gold Canyon. I'll PM you some info since they don't give a lot of space here. Have a great day!

  •'ll get a bunch of answers from people who are working for the business they will promote. You should still be careful of them.
    I have heard good things about babysitting from your home. People are looking for cheaper than daycare prices. Also Mary Kay and Avon have a nice customer base. Good luck!

  • Well, I have two seperate businesses and run a site helping SAHMs earn, spend, share and save money from their desk...

    Ameriplan is a low cost home based business. We offer daily pay, benefits, 401K and more. We are a low cost dental and health benefits company. I love what I do. You can get all the details by listening to the audio at I'm here for any questions you might have! Or request your interview (with me) at

    Teaporia is a free home based business. We sell loose teas, deserts and tea table accessories. It's free to start and will never require you to pay any fees. Although I sugest you do spend a few dollars to create a sales kit for yourself. I would be happy to give you more infotmation!

  • Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? Do you have a former employer you can do work for remotely? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement and sells them to boutiques around the midwest. I do freelance bookkeeping and business organization; I also do career and job search coaching. If you have a home computer with microsoft office and high speed internet, you can work as a virtual assistant. I have met the owner of a company called VSI, and he is a great guy with an amazing business:
