SAHM - What things do you do to earn extra money?

I'm a SAHM that wants to earn some extra money. I already sell Avon and business is slow right now. I need something that I can do from home (that isn't a scam) or another direct selling company that can bring in money on a more consistant basis. Any ideas?

  • I babysit. It's funny too...someone asked me where I find all these kids to babysit, and I honestly don't! They find me! I think because everyone knows I stay home that I'm easier to call on for that type pof thing. This week I'm babysitting for 4 days and making $200.

  • I am an Arbonne consultant. The products really work which keeps people coming back for more. Having clients set up on autoship for things like their nutritional supplements which they reorder once a month is really great for consistant volume and they get incentives for using autoship. If you would like I can send you some samples and more information.

  • I have 3 small children and researched long and hard for a work at home job. I really wanted to contribute to my family and keep my kids with me during the day. So I did lots of research and I found a great career! I recently have come across a home-based business opportunity with no large investment, no inventory and no risk. It is an Inc. 500 manufacturing company. I work from home with a company that manufactures products that we're already buying elsewhere, but they are better, safer & healthier. We just help set up customer accounts and the company pays us to do so. It has benefited our family so much! I never have to leave my house to be successful! If you would like some more information, please feel free to ask me about how I made it happen for my family! I would love to share the information about our company! I think if you hear all the details about working for this company it will make so much sense to you.

  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!
    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.
    I had searched for a work at home job for two years. This had proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I'd come across were scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.
    I am so lucky to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!
