  • I am not officially a work at home mom just yet, but I will be in September. In the past I have tried Pampered Chef and Usborne. They did not work for me, because while I enjoy cooking and children's books, the true passion of having my "own" business was not there. Right now, I am in the process of opening up my errand service business. I am truly passionate about it and I have enjoyed every minute of the process. I have learned so much over the past few months, especially from a cafemom group called Mommy Movers and Shakers. Bottom line is- follow your heart and your passion. If you do that then everything else will fall into place.

  • I work with the most amazing company (PrePaid Legal)and the most amazing team within the company!!
    If you are looking to start something that is truly the key to success I have the most amazing deal for you! I can get you started without paying your associate fee which I know from past experience it can be a total bummer to get all excited about something and then get bummed out when you find out you cannot afford to put the money on the line.
    Like I said I have an amazing offer for you and it is only available until 12p.m. tomorrow.
    Message me to get the details!!

  • I am a WAHM with Ameriplan. It's the only thing I have ever tried that did work... I work about 3-5 hours a day online & on the phone. Our company provides low cost dental & health care options as well as a legal/financial plan and a daily discount plan that helps with the cost of every day life.

    I've tried Avon, Melaleuca, PartyLite, Passion Parties, Slumber Parties, TeaPoria, Freebie Force (worked, but not as well as I would have liked) and a few others...

  • I've sold and been a team leader with avon for 7 years now.

    its not whether it "worked" its how you were able to use the tools and make it work for yourself.

    I also run the office for my dh's contractor business

  • I have sold Avon for 27 yrs and have been recruiting for 8. I make decent money w/ them. I also clean houses and do interior painting for a local real estate office. I enjoy what I do and it is all diversified enough that I never get bored.
