  • I will tell you that with businesses you get what you pay for. I have a number of them. 2 I work full time and put money in to, those come with the best benefits and training as well as the best comp plans. I also have some free ones, those come with NO training, NO support and little to know comp... So keep that in mind.

    Only one of my businesses is available in Canada and there is a small fee. But there is no phone work unless you want it. And we offer great benefits.

  • It seems you are looking for a job, not a business. All business will require a fee. Some a higher, some are lower. You get what you pay for. My business is still fairly new in Canada, so the market is wide open. We received an award from the Direct Selling Association for our online training that you get when you sign up. We have cutting edge products that are truly in demand and will continue to increase in the coming years. PM if you are interested in finding out more.

  • 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

  • If you have great people skills and can work a computer and a phone and live in either the US or Canada, you just might love working with our team of moms. If you are looking for a company where you have to sell or stock or deliver products, then maybe our team would NOT be a good fit for you. We love that we don't have an inventory or ongoing monthly expenses like many other home businesses do. Our "start-up" fee is usually $29 but until 06/20/09 it is only $14.50 and completely risk free. You have four full months to test drive us out and if you don't think that it is the perfect fit for you, you can get every cent back. Check out how we have so much fun, without selling. It just might be what you are looking for.
