  • At home childcare, a paper route (seriously!), sell Avon. Your start up is $20 for Avon, it depends on childcare if you are certified I'm not sure how much it costs to start but not much.

  • why do you say this, SoniaL? Have you ever tried HGR? It is not trouble. I am earning with it.

    Are you earning by getting other people to pay to join and earn for themselves?? Is that how it works?? It is called a pyramid scheme and while it can earn some people money it is not means to make a realistic living unless you are at the top of the pyramid and getting other people to give you money so that they can join and recruit others.

  • I did the Mary Kay thing also, did not go so well. I am now selling Gold Canyon Candles and loving it. I work w/ a great team who want to help us succeed in our business. Right now there is a promotion going on which is only $35 to start. Let me know if you would like anymore information.

  • Sounds like Discovery Toys would be a great solution for you. With Discovery Toys you can take your child/toy tester with you. You can start earning your first month. Also when you join my team Discovery Toys has tons of training and I will help you succeed if you are coachable. It is fun to play for a living!
