  • Sure.  I have created a series of work at home articles on eHow.  They contain excellent resources, ideas and information.  Also, I have a Blog about computer jobs sorted into those that pay via Paypal and those that pay utilizing other means.  You can check them all out at my website:

  • This question is asked about 20 times a day here, i'd look at some of those replies (which usualy have the same few people replying)!

    But your choices are:

    Start your own business, from a day care, cleaning homes, to walking dogs and running errands for elderly.

    Direct Selling: most of these ladies are reps with a direct selling company. The only problem is in 95% of all direct selling cases you make very little if any aren't guaranteed to earn money for the work you put in, and many even lose money trying to make it a success

    eBay or craigslist: You can sell your and your kids outgrown clothes, shoes and accessories. Whats great about this is you need ZERO to start, just things in your own home and a digital camera. You don't have to list things on eBay or other sites if you don't want to, you can take your very good to excellent items to consignment shops instead

  • to continue though, I do ebay, and have for years. I love the fact that I go to thrift shops, consignment sales, clearance sales and yard sales and buy inventory pretty inexpensively and make a decent return. I'd say that Gymboree or Ralph Lauren peices I spend $1 on I sell for $10-$15 on average!!! Plus I just love shopping and keep some things for my own kids.

  • there are a lot of companies seeking "stay at home" moms. Make sure you investigate thoroughly before moving forward. You want your company to have a proven track record, be part of the DSA if a network marketing company, have the BBB stamp of approval and most importantly a product line that everyday consumers can relate to. Feel free to contact me

  • I SO differ with the ones that say you don't make any money in the Direct Sales Biz !!! I am 47 & hve stayed away from DSA's most of my life. Whn I was younger they were like that. I actually joined with Scentsy in March of 08 & I DO make money. HOW? B-cause Scentsy re-based things towards their Consultants! We actually hve other DSA's reps joing bcause we DO make money! Scentsy gives back & THAT is their motto to us! Give back more thn you receive! I joined because I saw what my sister ws banking one yr ago. A $600.00 ck for 2 basket parties & 1 home party in 1 mth! That sold me, then I looked into Scentsy- who actually this year won the DSA's Rising Star award for being the "fastest growing DSA WITH ETHICAL Practices!" I now mke about $1000.00/mth- 1 or 2 parties/mth & 1 flea market!!! Plus extra money in my pocket if I sell any inventory, which I DO! See ME @
