Hey ladies I'm looking for an opportunity to work from home. My kiddos will be starting school next week and we need some extra income. We can't really afford child care ATM so I figured I would look into working from home. It really doesn't matter what it is as long as I don't need a lot of space (my house is small) and it has flexible hrs. ANY information or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks :)

In this economic slow-down we are no longer able to buy things we once could, price has increased.  I am a Mother of two and one on the way and I need to contribute to my family's income.  I am paying off my debts and feeling is why:

No selling

No inventory

No quotas

Not a MLM- believe me, I've done one, just came out of one actually.  They're a joke!

YOU are helping people with their: financial, personal, environmental and physical wellness!

Financially sound

Strong management

Unique consumable products

High reorder rate

Home is where want to stay. I specialize in helping moms stay home! truly amazing company, flexible hours. :) I'm working it right now! Haha

If you like to meet with people and have fun, you might consider Thirty-One Gifts.

We're a direct sales company in business since 2003 and we are looking for consultants all over the U.S.  The main way to sell the products is via home parties, but you can also have catalog parties and sell via your website. 

If you'd like more information you can go to to see the products we offer and how to get started.  The new consultant kit is $99 and you get more than $300 worth of products and supplies.  Feel free to send me a PM or an email from my webiste. 

If selling really isn't for you, then I would recommend where you can download a free report on how to start your own virtual assistance business from home. 

Good luck!  I hope you find what you're looking for!

All the best,

I have a business that helps non profits.  I've worked with non profits for years and it's hard to see them struggle so much in this economy.   With my program, they don't have ask their supporters to donate money and they really like that. If you like working with community organizations you may enjoy doing what I do.  It pays great and the income continues every month for each organization you help.  You can see it here

Message me for more information


These tools have exploded my work at home biz.  I'm getting twice as many leads with the same amount of work.  They can help you too. 

Here is a great example of a very effective lead capture page

I work with a company called Enchanted Potions and they hand craft various bath & body type things as well as home fragrances. They wil also custom label your items at no extra charge and all their prices are reasonable (like under $10) It's a small friendly company, not huge with lots of rules and restrictions about advertising, etc. and no parties! (Although you could if you wanted) 30% comission.  Super low quota to stay active but you will not have a problem with that since they have stuff people use everyday anyway like shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, shower gel, hand sanitizer, cologne, etc all in delicious fragrances like pumpkin swirl cheesecake, cherry almond, orange sherbet, toasted marshmallow and so on! If you sign up, please make sure you list me as your referral as the only down side is there is not a replicating website (but no restrictions on building your own)  Vivian Feltz

My name is Andrea. I read your post and couldn't wait to tell you about this fantastic company I am working with called "Soul Purpose Lifestyle Company." This company has products for Beauty, Body, Style and Spirit. But just to explain a little more...if you are interested in selling wonderfully scented candles that are all natural soy and can be used as a massage oil afterwards we have that. If you are interested in focusing on health and nutrition we have a line of daily nutrition and sports nutrition. If you are interested in selling spa quality products, we have shower gels, body custards, sugar scrubs and Shea butters in an array of fantastic scents. If you are interested in selling exotic coffees and teas, we have that as well. If you are interested in selling mineral makeup we have that as well. We also have added a new company that allows us to give away free Pharmacy Discount cards to people and every time they use it we get paid. How many people you know turn down something that is free?

And lastly, if you wanted to do all like I can do that as well. If you are interested check out my website at:

I am a consultant for Just Jewelry.  We sell stylish jewelry at affordable prices, with everything under $30!  Consultants earn 50% commission right from the start, and there are no sales minimums to stay active.  We do home parties, catalog parties, fundraisers, and individual sales.  The company did a pre-release of a few of the new fall/winter items, and the full catalog will be out in less thana month.  There is a lot of excitement over the new line, so now is a great time to join.

I don't know if you are looking for a job or a home based business. If you are looking for a business where you can be your own boss and choose your own hours, I have something you might be interested in.  I work with an International  health and wellness company called Isagenix.  We are the world leader in Whole body Nutritional cleansing (NOT colon cleansing), Cellular Replenishing and youthful aging. (We have Nutritional cleanses, protein shakes, nutrition products, weight loss systems, skin care, and anti-aging products just to name a few.)  We have replicated websites, free training (and I personally help people on my team) We have systems to follow, so you don't have to be an expert on anything!  Take a look at my website, check out a few videos and see if it's something that you might be interested in. I can answer any questions you have. (just send me a message.)
