Wondering any successful work at home mothers who have advice?

I work full time and am trying to start doing mia bella candles I would like to start running websites and blogs and promoting more. If there are any women who have been successful running a bussiness and could offer advice to help me out and perhaps be willing to discuss what worked for you I would appreciate it so much.

  • I gave up on all the 'sales' type work at home businesses. I don't have the time or engergy for the parties and endless begging of friends to buy something from me. I have had great success with different types of online jobs though. (All free stuff), You can read about what I'm doing at Earn Money Online

    I've made over $23,000 so far with just one company

  • Direct sales never worked for me. I started my own business that offers a service. I would be more than happy to talk with you. Send me a friend request.

  • Direct sales can be very tricky--not everyone has the right personality for it.
    Instead, I have a business where I'm partnered w/ a co. that does all the manufacturing, inventory, collecting $$, delivering--really helpful & you don't have to keep any inventory! There is no risk b/c of their guarantee.
    People only need so much Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Avon, Mary Kay, etc.--unless they try new colors & scents every month! This co. has products that EVERYONE uses DAY AFTER DAY & they are SAFER, SUPERIOR & CHEAPER than the competition!
    Let me know if you'd like more info!

  • 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 small business marketing, and a little medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
