  • Yes I was lucky enough to find a job that allowed me to work at home. When I started (10 yr ago) I had 2 little children- 1 with special needs. It was nice to be able to have a paying job that had a flexible schedule to work around my family, and around my son's various therapy appointments.

  • I worked out of a home office for several years before I had to stop (preggo complications). I was in sales, traveled a lot, and it was nice not having to "dress" everyday. I missed the human interaction of an office though. (I had worked in an office for 16 years prior). There's good and bad about both. I think when I go back I may go for an office environment again, unless I get an offer I can't refuse working from home.

  • Yes I WAH. For me it was a choice that I knew would be made when we had kiddos. I did not want them going to daycare or sitters and I wanted to be the one home with them all the time. I love my roll here at home and I love that I also contribute financially by saving us tons of money AND bringing in income. No brainer for me :-).

  • I actually work both. Outside the home was never really a choice I had to support my son and myself. Then this past year my current s/o was laid off so we needed extra income and I found two at home jobs that tweeked my interest. I became an Independent Distributor for The Gourmet Cupboard because there was no start up cost and the products were nicely priced and good so I new they would sell. I became a consultant for LaBella Baskets because it looked like fun and was only $1.97 to try out for a week then only $19.95 a month so I new I could afford it even if it didn't take off right away!! Please feel free to pm me for more info on either one of these great opportunities to make a little extra spending cash!

  • I work from home. I sell Scentsy. Best job I have ever had!!!! I absolutely love working with Scentsy. I make pretty good money, and it's lots of fun!! When I had our first child, I DID NOT want to leave her with a daycare, or someone else. I wanted to be the one to raise her, and when she got older, we decided to homeschool. I have loved being able to make money doing something I really like and stay home with my family!!
