If you work at home, what do you do? I would love to work from home...

If you work at home, what exactly do you do? What kind of money can you earn (potential) and do your really earn?

I'm not a slacker by any means, but i would love to have more feedom to attend school functions during the day (have one child), appointments when needed and such without constantly taking time (and pay) from work. And it's actually more the time thing that's the issue.

I'm kinda intoverted and shy, so i don't do well with things like MaryKay or party/selling stuff. I don't feel comfortable doing it.

My husband carries the health ins. for our family, so that's not an issue. And though we could survive on just his income, we have some things we are paying off, spending money on fertility treatments, and wanting me to stay at home once we get pg. (fingers crossed).

Links to websites okay to post. Nothing in the "adult" industry though.

  • Ameriplan is a great company and because it is your own business it will give you the freedom in a schedule that you are looking for. I totally feel where you are coming from in having to take off for different thinkgs. I love being able to not have to worry about those things.

    Ameriplan does offer us Daily Pay and Benefits among other things. Plus we make residual income each month, so your income keeps growing.
    There is tons of info on my website

    P/T income ranges from $1000-$2500 a month your first year and $2000-$3000 within 12-36 months. So the income potential is really great. You won't obviously be making that right away but it will build to it fast :)
    No selling or parties either :)
    Good Luck and God Bless.

  • I do L'Bri... This is a great skincare company who's main ingredient is aloe vera. You can do parties or your can talk to people one on one. We have changed our parties and so they are not messy and can be done in ladies living rooms. We have fun and earn money, too. Watch the video on my front page of my website.

  • all i have to tell you about that is be careful, i did a thing at home and we had to pay a membership, buy so many product points a month and it was just stupid. I have just recently thought about doing the medical transcription from home which only costs like $1200. and the yrly would be about 40,000

    I am also an introvert and shy but I have no problems selling what I am passionate about. To me it is more like sharing what I like with other people. I work at home part time and also work outside of the home full time. I am an independent distributor with Scent Sations and LOVE it. I fit my work schedule around my family not the other way around like I would have to with a part time job. The potential income you can earn is unlimited- no celing here. Take a look at my website and let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

    Good luck in your search.
