  • I was a stay at home mom and took a job at a preschool...part time, fairly easy, and I get to take my kids to work with me and see them and make sure they are being taken care of well!

    I teach music and computers, which means I have the super fun job! ;) I only work from 8 to 12 and the rest of the day is mine!

    Its funny b/c I still consider myself a stay at home mom! ;) lol

  • a lot of it depends on your personality. I tried babysitting and it just did NOT work. I am a very non-confrontational person. i ended up just getting majorly taken advantage off. if you are wanting to get out of the house, then you could always sell avon or mary kay and do deliveries. you can even see if there is anyone in the area who needs help getting groceries. If you arent into sales, then you could work from home like me doing marketing at setting up new customers accounts ( if you want to check it out) it really just depends on what suits you!

  • I started selling Scentsy Wickless Candles (flameless, wickless, sootless candles that are COMPLETLY safe for children and pets) in December 2009 and my average monthly income is about $500-$700 a month. I usually have 2-3 parties a month. You can get as much as you put into it! I know many people that have been able to quit their full time jobs to do Scentsy only. To find out more about this 6 year old business, visit my website, or feel free to email me questions, it only cost $99 to sign up and that includes everything you need to have your first party! you can even do basket (book) parties! I absolutly LOVE selling Scentsy! I have met so many fun ladies!
