  • Can you go out and do things? I am a SAHM and there is never a dull moment. We are always on the go. We got to the library for story time every week. We also do the park ALOT. I also joined a few playgroups on and all the moms are super nice!!! It really keeps us busy and the kids love it.

  • I use to work full-time and made good money. I left my job when we relocated. I started a stay at home business doing something I enjoy that is also flexible. I enjoy being home, but I still have to have something I can call my own. My business is the perfect outlet to satisfy that need.

  • Seriously consider finding a business that will allow you the best of both worlds. You can stay at home and still feel successful, fulfilled and have the extra income. Also consider joining a local mom's group. is a great place to find groups in your area.

  • I felt the same way that you do before I found this wonderful home business called Once Upon A Family. It gives me a chance to meet other moms, do some great fun things with my kids and contribute to our family income.

    I help to change families, build relationships and create lasting connections. Plus, since it's newer (5 years), it's an AMAZING ground floor opportunity to do something that has real meaning. Let me ask you this...people can always say "No, I don't wear make-up" or "I can get those same candles at XYZ store for less."...but can you ever imagine anyone saying "No, I don't think I could use some FUN, SIMPLE and CREATIVE ways to have lasting impact on my family and loved ones." can you?

    Check out my website at or send me a message for more information.
