  • It's going to sound silly but my mom (SAHM for 16 years) sold Avon on the side for several years and made pretty good money...right now she's on Second Life doing real estate and makes $1000 a month....I'm also on Second Life (SAHM for 3 years) and I do hostessing on's just spending money really...enough to pay for my internet connection but there are alot of other money making opportunities on there and it's actually pretty fun.

    I know my suggestions are a little unconventional lol...but I'm sure you'll get alot of great responses to choose from...good luck mama!

  • I have two free opportunities. They are businesses. And really depending on how much time you devote to them is how much money you make.
    I am an Independent Distributor for The Gourmet Cupboard selling handmade gourmet mixes.
    I am also an associate for Too Timid. It's adult novelties that you direct people to your website they purchase the products and they are shipped directly to their door you never know what they buy its shipped in brown packages so neither does anyone else. You get a percent of the sales and they mail a check once a month. They only mail if you've made over $50. but if you make $10 this month and $80 next month they would mail you a $90 check. PM for more details if your interested in either of these.

  • Hi,

    I completely understand where you're coming from. I've been struggling with the decision of going back to work in the fall. My son just turned 3 in March, and I did not want to be forced to put him into full time preschool due to financial hardships. I prayed about finding an opportunity that would allow me to find financial security without sacrificing the relationship I have with my son. The next day my friend called and introduced me to this awesome business concept that finally made sense to me. The best part is the support you receive from other moms. They're really there to help make your dreams come true. There's no selling, no inventory, and no risk. I'd love to share with you some information and then you can decide if it's right for you. Just send me a message. I wish you luck!

  • You really have to find something that you like to do. If you like selling products, keeping inventory and hosting parties... my sister does Mary Kay and I could get you in touch with her. However, when I worked with Mary Kay (I LOVE their products) I found it hard to actually get people to continuously buy and I never really made enough to stay active, so I had to pay out of pocket every few months. If you like going door to door, or wouldn't mind going door to door there is a company called amway (i'm not sure what they sell, I never really liked that idea). Avon is cheap, but I had a few orders from them that I NEVER say so I quit!
    But, if you are looking for something you can do straight out of your home, I work with a company called PrePaid Legal. We are based around helping other people succeed and making new friends. I would love to talk to you if you are interested.
