L., I'm in the same position you are. Due to different reasons Ive been able to be at home fir several months with my son. But, i'm looking for an opportunity like you. I've tried MaryKay and I just don't think sales is right for me. I hope I can find a legitimate at home position. So I'm looking forward to Reading some of the responses myself.

I am an independent consultant with Once Upon A Family. AND I LOVE IT! check out my website at www.onceuponafamily.com/missyjo

The great thing about this company is that you can make GREAT money by being a full time consultant or fun money (car payment, six flags money, chuck e cheese money) by being a casual consultant.

The company is fairly new (I think starting in 2005) so the market isn't saturated with consultants. I think only about 900 nationwide. The products promote family life, values, and is just all around great company. the women that I've met have been so uplifting, encouraging and wonderful.

And the best part is that my children and family and I are closer now that what we ever were and that is great. That's the whole point of being a stay at home mom. To teach your child values and traditions and to be a great mom. This way you can be a great mom, and brag about it while teaching other families how to do the same and that's perfect!

What better company to work for that this one?

If you have ANY questions, please call me on my cell phone at ###-###-####

Hilton Reservations has some work-at-home positions for making hotel reservations. There is a 2 week training session that you get paid for but is at their office. After that, you work from your home computer and telephone. You can look it up on the internet. Southwest Airlines also has a work-at home reservations program too. Good luck.

Hello L.! Congrats on the birth of your baby girl!

I am a work from home mommy and a Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics. Mary Kay has been such an incredible blessing to me and my growing family. I now drive a free career car and am able to work my business around my son. Mary Kay is a recession proof company and only 3 industries can make such a claim, tobacco, alcohol and personal hygene products. Plus we are consumable. If you choose a company where you will sell something, I highly recommend going for something that is consumable so you will have return clients. Plus Mary Kay is the best selling brand of skin care and glamour cosmetics and have been #1 for the past 15 years. People try it, love it and buy it.

I would love to talk to you more about our incredible opportuntiy and a chance for you to have a personal pampering session with me! Knowledge is power and this way you will be equipped with making an educated decision for you and your family. You can check out my website for more information www.marykay.com/nrpowers or feel free to call me anytime ###-###-####. Good luck with your search! I hope to be able to help!

Take care and God bless!

Hi L.,

You have gotten some good responses. Congrats on your new little girl as well. I think you are probably looking for something that you only work at home right now, but was not sure. I am an Independent Wine Consultant with WineShop At Home. I do in home wine tastings and it is a fun night out for me as well as being my job. You can check out my website at www.grapetasteathome.com if you are interested. This is still a relatively new company so we are not saturated like some companies and we get to drink wine! Good luck on your search.

Cheers,
M. D.

You have received alot of good responses and have alot to choose from. Obviously you know what appeals to you.
I live in Mesquite and I was the first consultant for TASTEFULLY SIMPLE in my area. The company has not saturated Texas which is good for us that are here. We have an open market. And I need help getting the word out. We sell EASY TO PREPARE gourmet food. To allow families to have more time together. You will own your own business and can work it as much or little as you want to. Part time or full time. It's up to you. And everyone loves to eat! I do home taste-testing parties (which are a blast) but also on-line parties & catalog parties. Also people will find you on the web & place an order & you get the commission. I will send you more info privately and for anyone else please check out my website: tastefullysimple.com/web/cbywater.
Best of luck to you and your precious daughter
