I have been looking everywhere to find real 'work from home' offers but I need help. I go to school full time and have my son. I really need a job but don't want to get a traditional job where I would be away from my son even more. Please let me know of any legitimate work from home jobs. Thank you so much!

What can I do next?

Hi A.
I am an independant distributor with Premier Designs Jewelry. It may not be what you are looking for but I can tell you that it's a great income whether you need something a little extra or a full time salary, and I work when I want. I can work as much or as little as I want. I am able to be with my kids without having to pay an arm and a leg for daycare when I do a show. If you'd like more info on the company and what is involved in getting started I'd love to show you. I personally love it, and I'm having fun with it as well. It doesn't feel like a "job" to me!

I have been a consultant for Arbonne International for about 1 1/2 years now and have loved every minute of it. As with any other MLM company, it is very important to do your research and remember there are ups and there are downs but anything worth having is something you must work hard for.

Hi A.,

I recently started selling Avon, and I love it. I am not a real people person, so I thought I might have some problems at first, but Avon really sells itself. They give you your own website so your customers can order online, and I am able to take my son with me to collect orders and make deliveries. It only costs $10 to start. I've been doing it for about 2 months now and have already made an extra $400. Plus you get to write off your expenses at tax time. Let me know if you are interested and I can help you get started.

Hi A.,
A traditional job means you trade time for money, but the best thing to do for your family is a build a redidual income and let a great team of other people (especially moms!) help you build a business that is yours. I recently became a distributor for Vemma, a cutting-edge nutritional supplement, after being a product user. I don't have to "sell" because most everyone wants to give their body the best nutrition they can. The compensation plan is one of the best because we get paid on volume, not levels, and there is no quota. You can work another job, and still make a healthy recommendation to people...and get paid.

Think about it and contact me for more info or advice. It won't hurt you to seek out more info...there's zero risk!

My friend Gaby owns her own business and works from home. He is looking to sell her business. If you loves fitness, children and have been looking for an opportunity to work from home please... this might be a fit for you.

Stretch-n-Grow is an early childhood fitness program designed to promote exercise and wellness among young children. The classes are taught at preschool's by yourself or your part time coaches. The client base consists of day care centers, Mother's Day Out Programs and Churches in the Plano and Frisco areas. This is an established business so you would have revenue from the start. A home based business that can be managed full-time or part-time.

If you are interested in this opportunity please email:

answers from Dallas on

This may not be what will work for you, but why not try working at a Mother's Day Out or Daycare? Sometimes they have flexible hours and of course you can bring your child with you.

The reason I bring this up is that I'm currently working for my son's montessori school in their MDO program only 3 hours/day (from 3 pm - 6 pm) and my children will get to be in the same room with me. Plus it would give you good resume experience, once you have your degree.

Working from home is tricky unless you have certain skills or connections. The ones I'm most familiar with are database coding (where you would summarize documents for law firms in litigation). Medical transcriptionsts would do something similar. It helps to be a fast typist because you get paid by the record. I would look for litigation support companies if that interests you (I used to work for one, so send me a separate e-mail if interested). You could also try stuffing envelopes for mail houses. Sometimes they allow you to take projects home, but I might not recommend it with a 17 mo old boy around (my boys would have destroyed anything like that lying around).

I'm currently a freelance graphic artist and direct mail consultant and have found a couple of steady clients that allow me to stay home and work. I'm also a distributor for a greeting card company called Send Out Cards, a relationship and network marketing company. I don't have any inventory and all my sales & training can be done over the phone.

If you get involved in any kind of MLM company or selling from your home I would do your research. Talk to other people who have joined and what their experiences have been. Like anything else, you get out of it what you put in and it probably helps to be more of a people person.

Hope that helps, good luck! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or to explore any of those options.
