Seeking Home Employment - Chicago,IL
I am the SAHM mother of a wonderful 18 month old boy. I am looking to make some extra money by doing work out of my home. If anybody knows of any opportunities that I could look into, please let me know. I am open to any type of work that I could do from home.

I haven't been able to find any legit data entry work which is very unfortunate. So I am concentrating in my direct selling - Pampered Chef, Thirty-One Gifts (really great stuff) and Cupcake Candles. If any of these interest you, please let me know. I can give you the low down and they all have little or nothing needed to join. :)
Good luck! If I hear of anything in Admin field, I will let you know and I hope you do the same.

I work from home as a consultant for Arbonne International. It's been a blessing for our family, allowing me to stay home with our 3 children. The company offers training that you can do at your own pace and on your own schedule. Also there is sponsor training and help. One of my favorite sayings in Arbonne is "you are in business for yourself but not by yourself." Another one is "earn why you learn." Even though you are starting your own business, you can start making money the first week you are in business.
For more information, Check out my website at www.foryourhealthandwealth.myarbonne.com
On the right there are links to presentations -- they will give a better idea of what the company and the opportunity are all about.
I would be happy to talk more with you about the details - it would take about 20 minutes. Feel free to call me or send me your email address and I'll let you know some times and locations where you can come to a "DISCOVER ARBONNE" meeting to listen in and meet others in the business. There are meetings every week in the city and the suburbs.
This may or may not be a fit for you but it's definately worth checking out!
If you knew what I know about Arbonne, there would be nothing stopping you from building a business today. Call this number 24/7 to hear more ###-###-####.

Hi M. -
I left my job in advertising/marketing about 6 months ago to be a stay-at-home mom and have found Baby Splendor to be a nice source of extra income. I'm an Independent Consultant for them -- they're similar to Tupperware and Pampered Chef except all of the products are fun, innovative baby and kids items! All of the products are sold through home parties or catalog/web sales. Take a peek at the products at my website -- www.susiemaryellen.mybabysplendor.com.
Baby Splendor is a member of the Direct Selling Association. They were also recently written about in BusinessWeek magazine -- I can send you a copy of the article if you'd like. There are minimal fees for your starter kit which includes catalogs, brochures, 10 products and a training manual. It costs $149 to start but you only have to put $25 down. The balance is due after 30 days.
If you decide to become a consultant, you earn a minimum of 25% commission on all of your sales. There are no monthly minimums or sales quotas. The products are fantastic (I use practically all of them with my 1-year old son) and they really do sell themselves.
I can provide you with more information if you're interested in learning more. You can e-mail me at ____@____.com.

I run an at home business with the Pampered Chef and I do parties and shows for friends and do bridal shows as well. I just closed on a show today and I made $100 for this show. It varies based on how much you do and how much you sell. But its a lot of fun and not that much work. If you're interested I could do a show for you and some friends and you could see what I'm talking about.
I also sell Melaleuca products which are health, beauty, and cleaning products without chemicals and toxins. There is a website for both companies I work for so if you want more info let me know - I'd be happy to help with it!
