How many of you WAH moms with a home based business...

Pull in at least 30K a year? 50K? Anyone make more than that? How long did it take you to do so, and how many hours per week do you work? Just curious. Most of the home based businesses advertised seem to have a low income potential...but feel free to prove me wrong! Besides, if you make that much...this would be great advertising to get new recruits...since nobody ever mentioned income. Just that it's a "great" company or something.

  • Personally I don't make that much YET because I haven't been doing this that long ... but there are plenty of people I know who are making this kind of money with Beachbody. These are people who do it full time and treat it like a real job, and many have no other job except beachbody.

    That being said, Beachbody is a health & wellness business and believes in leading by example. So you have to be committed to leading a healthy lifestyle and helping others do the same, you have to workout a minimum of 8 times per month. Beachbody isn't for everyone, but If you're into healthy living then this is the business for you.

    Some people get there in 4 months, some in a year and some never! People that use this as their only job average 25-40 hrs a week. I'm only doing about 10 because I have 3 jobs ..I've made $200 this week.

    Income depends on effort. zero nets zero

  • I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. My income falls in that range.

  • Well I sell on eBay, when i'm consistant with my listings I've made as much as $10,000 a year with it. I've been selling on eBay for 10 years now. I also run our Carpet Cleaning business from home. Last year was our first year in business and we grossed $53,000, which is not bad considered we worked the business part-time. We are taking it full time this Spring.

  • In my business, that is Director pay. Which is basically a management/leadership position training other consultants in their business. Although my mentor has made that in a month. Yes, I said a month. Which is hard for me to wrap my brain around, but will one day. PM me, I would love to share my business with you. The best part, you decide how fast or slow you work.
