  • I just started my own home business with a great company. I set up accounts. It's fun for me because I am a people person. You can do it all online, or you can do online and go out and talk to ppl. I am in the process of getting an appointment with my childs preschool and the academy. I like doing presentations...If you don't then you post a couple ads (real easy) and ppl will contact you. It's easy, fun, and it is totally risk free. It's not a get rich quick thing. You actually have to work at this and put time into it. I get to work my own hours. It's great. I have a part time job....I put in about 20-30 hrs a week. If you would like to check it out, go to

  • I am an independent distributor with Scent Sations. I work my business around my full time job and my family time. I love the fact that I choose the hours I work. We have three ways to earn an income-retailing, fundraising or team building. You will have to work but it is so much fun that it doesn't really feel like work. Visit my website at to take a look around. If you are interested in learning more please let me know.
    Good luck

  • I used to do home daycare when my boys were small. I ran it family style meaning I treated the kids like my own. It was structured buy not "preschooly" like some daycares.

    Do you sew? You would be shocked at the amount of work you can get!

    I started the business I have now in my guest room with a sewing machine and just a few dollars. It has morphed into a great business with several employees and more than $200,000 in sales this past year. My site is The stuff on the site is where I started. I now hold several contracts for items that aren't for those with special needs. We also have several school contracts.

  • There is such a thing as being a Virtual Assistant that I often advocate to women who want to work from home.  If you have administrative skills and are internet savvy its a very viable field to get into.
