  • There are a few moms on here who have blogs about work at home jobs and businesses. I have also found this website to be helpful- Just remember if a business is wanting you to pay money for a JOB, then it is more than likely a scam. The only exception would be if they want you to pay for your own background check or drug test. Now a business opportunity is different. You will have to invest some money but you will generally receive something for it- training manual, business supplies, demo products, etc.

  • Check out the groups on here, they are full of moms who have home businesses and are usually willing to answer questions.

  • That would be absolutely amazing mommy2joeynabby!! I am having some medical problems and have been on medical leave for the past 2 months. I am more than capable of working, I just have a hard time walking. I am afraid that it will be longer a while before I am released to go back, and am needing to start making money. I want the freedom to work at 2 in the afternoon or 2 in the morning, be a full time mommy, and be able to support my children. ANY information would be so appreciated! ;)

  • My husband and I both work from home. Before working from home we were both bringing home very good paychecks with him working in construction and me working in Real Estate. We were both laid off from our jobs. We really did not have a plan B.We were blessed to have been introduced to this business by a family member. We now have the time and flexibility to work from home and be with one another and our children. We work in a business providing Home Essentials. We dont sell anything and we dont change anyones spending habits. We simply provide them with a savings in what they are already using everyday. Take a look at my website. Watch the videos in the video bank. Let me know if you have questions or would like to get started.

  • My work from home businesses are miche bags and guy and eva jewelry.
    The jewelry is much lighter to carry, faster set up, faster takedown.

    That's all :)
