I need a second job. What is a good work from home job?

I want to be able to make a little more money but I do not want to get a second job where I have to leave my son with the babysitter all the time. I want to try to get a job where I can work from home, that way I will be able to be with my son.

  • Most work from home opportunities are ones where you get what you put into it. I have done several things. I can recommend home parties, because I was doing Sealed WIth a Kiss and brought home at least $300 a month doing that. it is an adult party industry that focuses on things to spice up your sex life.
    I am also a travel agent from home. It is commission based and you really have to work at building trust with people. Since you deal more online, over the phone, or through referrals. The rewards are good though and it is a fun job. Plus you get to learn about new places.

  • I work with two different companies. I work with AmeriPlan offering Discount Health Benefit Plans! I have been with this company for over 2 years and I love it! I love that I am helping others, especially with health plans considering our country's healthcare crisis. Check it out! www.iboplus.com/lwestfall

    I also work with Gold Canyon Candles. Started out just for fun and to get a discount, but it has grown much bigger than that. I love getting together with other women and when I can't, I just advertise my website and get orders that way. I know a lot of other reps who don't do parties, they just get orders from their websites! PLUS during June, you get your kit for FREE! Check it out! www.mygccandle.com/lwestfall

  • My name is Tina I am a distributor for Slumber Parties. I have the best of both worlds. I get to be home full time during the day with 3 children and than I get to go out a few nights a week and make great money. It also gives me that chance to be an adult and hang out with other women. Check it out www.slumberpartiesbytinaflannery.com this is an amazing opportunity I have been with this company since October and I was able to buy a NEW car in April prior to this business there was no way I could afford a new car.

  • I just started with an online ECO- Friendly shopping company! WWW.SHOPTOEARN.NET/TINA. There was a minimal investment but I made it back in 3 weeks and have now made over $6000 (in 6 weeks). There great thing is you don't have to sell or stock a product and NO parties!! You get cash back on everything you buy and cash bonuses for every person that you refer! I will be making about $4000 per month by August and hope to quit my fulltime job then! It's not for everyone but a HUGE opportunity for the right people! Who do you know that Shops?
