what can I do to make extra money from home?

My husband and I both work 40 hours a week, and make time for our kids' extra curricular activities. We would like to make a little bit more cash without having to be away from the kids more than we already are. Any tips?

  • I have a Home Business... I make GREAT money from home. If your children are already involved with sports or other activities you have a great opportunity to make money from day one with this business! I talk to a lot of the coaches in the area to grow mine! There are some fees because it's a BUSINESS and not a JOB. But they are all tax deductable along with some of your utillities and morgage and gas... Plus you'll get Free Benefits for your family... PM me for details!

  • You can sell Avon and earn 50% right at the start. It's nearing the Holiday's and it's a great time to begin. You can take your kids with you to put out brochures and deliver orders, and they can see what running a business is like.

    It's easy to get started, and you can sign up online at with my Reference Code: pamburger

    The total cost is $20, a kit is shipped directly to you, you can take online training 24/7, and I will be your support and mentor. I am an Advanced Unit Leader with Avon for six years.

    You may even want to help out your kids by running a fundraiser for whatever group or sport they are involved in.
