  • I've been working part time from home (aside from my part time job) to make ends meet.

    I joined an on-line shopping club that pays me to shop on-line and refer others to do the same. I don't have to sell anything, I just buy what I normally buy, have it delivered to my home avoiding gas charges and wear and tear on my car. I can still use store coupons and so many of the stores offer free shipping.
    Feel free to look into it. I love it.

  • Well, I have tried just about everything online and have lost a good bit of money. Something my hubby is not happy about at all. I had good intentions, but was a little too naive I guess.
    I'm now selling Avon online. This has worked out great for me so far. In the first 3 weeks, I made nearly $300. You can be an Avon eRepresentative and then start recruiting others to sell on your downline. Recruiting really is the best way to make money. Anyway, I'm an eRep.and have my online store that anyone can shop from. People can even have their orders shipped directly to their homes now. If you're interested, you go on my website at You can even sign up to sell on my site for only $20 to get the start up kit. I can also help you find your own personal District Manager to help you too. Just let me know, ok.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). There is a company located outside of Chicago that matches up VAs & clients called VSI; the url is The owner is Tracey Wallace.
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. I work out of my home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly -Robin
