I am a stay at home Mommy to my 3 ½ year old son, and 22 month old daughter. I work with a great team of Moms; we help each other create income from home. No parties, No inventory!

  • I've never had any luck with direct selling companies, problem was I worked too much and made too little. 30 hours a week for $10-$30 isn't going to pay one bill....

    I sell on ebay for my "spending money" and I earn about $150 a week or so, depending on how much I list. And work maybe 10 hours a week on it.

  • I have done Mary Kay and it didn't work for me, but to be honest I know that it was because there were MK reps everywhere. My friend does Avon and does well w/ it, but she has been w/ avon for a long time. I am in Direct Sales w/ Gold Canyon Candles and have had great success w/ it. If you would like to hear more about our company send me a msg. Good Luck on your search.

  • I have worked with lots of "at home" companies. I tried the candles and makeup companies and hated all of them. There are tons of them out there, but if you are interested in something that's FREE and doesn't require any type of sales you should check out my list at Earn Money Online

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
