  • First you need to decide what you want to do from home. Do you like selling, parties, data entry, answering online questions, surveys, etc.
    After you decide what you like best start looking for people that do it, join some work at home groups here and talk to others.
    Be weary of scams! You never pay for a work at home JOB only home businesses b/c all businesses require an overhead.
    I'm currently with AmeriPlan and love it but it's not for everyone. You must find something you love doing because if not, it will never work.

  • Personally I started a typing service and am currently adding affiliate businesses on top of it. All I can really suggest is that you talk to other WAHM's, get some insight and do your research. There are some great connections in here that will be happy to help you out. Email if you want some links of places to look. :)

  • Try They have job listings for work at home jobs and work at home business opportunities. They also have some really great advice. If you are considering a businesss opportunity check out That is the direct sales association website and they have great advice on how to avoid scams.
    In my opinion you should find something that you love and that is where you will be most successful. Enthusiasm is contagious! I am a consultant with Arbonne International which is a Swiss Skincare company and I really love it. If you would like any information I would be happy to help you any way I can. I can also send you some free samples if you would like to try the products.

  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!
    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.
    I had searched for a work at home job for two years. This had proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I'd come across were scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.
    I am so blessed to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!
