  • Well, there are lots of ways. I, personally, am not a single mom. But I know many! My mother included. Since I am going to assume you need money NOW as opposed to being able to build a business I would say look for a WAH Job for the time being and once you have an income look in to a WAH business. A Job will get you a paycheck but will not support you... A business will creat freedom and an income for the rest of your life. HOWEVER they take fees and time! I have a WAH Biz and LOVE it but I didn't have to worry about keeping a roof over our heads while I built it. I have a journal post about WAH jobs and personally recomend you check out There is some great information there...

    Good Luck!

  • Well I WAH with AmeriPlan. It is an awesome opportunity for someone who can't get out much. We do not handle products, deliveries, have parties or anything like that.
    Most of our work is done right on the computer and on the phone. If you would like more information on my WAH business please let me know. We have a very large percentage of successful mommies in our company making money from home everyday. I can help you get started and train. Roxanne

  • i got involved with 3 different network marketing companies. I work when my son is at school - I just wish people didn't have such a negative outlook on network marketing. It really is so much fun and the least stressful thing to do - i absolutely love what I do - i stick to natural healthy products that are functional, consumable, and I don't stock anything and i don't have to sell anything - just word of mouth it - and they do amazing

  • You could try Scentsy. We send out baskets for people to collect orders and pick up the baskets. It saves time from having to go out and do parties. If you're interested check out the link on my profile. Good luck to you with whatever you choose.

  • Being a single mom, you want a real stay at home job that doesn't require ever leaving the house for your business. I work with a great team of mothers who stay at home and work to make money. Either part time or full time. Visit my profile to see what I do and check out my web-site and request some info.

  • Hi, I've been a single mom since 2005 and selling Avon since 2003. Selling full-time while raising your child alone can be done as long as you stay consistent by keeping in contact with people. If you're interested in giving Avon a try it only costs $10 to sign up. You can sell online, at home, at work or anywhere you usually go on a daily basis and you don't have to go door-to-door. You can set your own schedule, be your own boss and work at your own pace. Earning potential for selling Avon is unlimited.

    If your interested email me at or visit my website at
