  • Avon.. I just restarted selling Avon and I'm doing a lot better this time around. Unless you have a huge customer base, its not wise just to rely on Avon as a solid income

  • There are LOTS of them! I have 2 that I work full time and a few I do on the side. What are you looking for? There are many options when finding the right home business for you. Are you looking for a party plan or something you can work 90% from home? How do you feel about the phone and computer? Do you want something with a product or service? One time commission per sale or residual (recurring payments) commissions? Are you looking to earn a few hundred a month or do you eventually want to retire with your DH in Mauii? All these are questions that need answered before you can really pick the right home business.

  • You can search the job boards for positions that match your skillset and have a telecommute option. 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). For more information, go to 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. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization, I also do career and job search coaching. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation.

  • Hello! I got introduced to Internet CEO Moms when I got laid off in April. I joined after some research at the beginning of April and they are totally legit. I LOVE working with all the moms out there and it's such a positive experience. Check my website out at or you can send me an email at if you would like to know more. We don't sell or have inventory so you would have to worry about that. Hope to hear from you soon!
