You should really contact me. I offer a medical transcription course that is much better than the colleges because it is cheaper and you have 24/7 help and a friend for life that will always be there to help you through everything, including computer problems, getting new accounts, etc. This is not a gimick. This is a skill that you can use at home or in a doctors office or in a hospital. You can work as an independent contractor and/or an employee with a large transcription company (from home) and get benefits. I've been a work-at-home mom for 9 years now and I love my income and my freedom to spend lots of time with my kids.

You are right there are a lot of scams or gimmicks online. I looked at many different businesses and finally decided on Watkins. You can earn money by selling products and/or by showing other people how they can save and earn with Watkins. My upline is wonderful and have created a complete training site along with a totally free prospecting website like this.. http://www.tsginfo.com/index.php?rc=PK4997
I love Watkins. Great products that people actually use and you truly can do as much or as little as you would like.

Let me know if you would like to learn more.

Hi Sonya,

I am a newly SAHM and have been working with Arbonne for the past 3 years. I had my Arbonne business while I was working full time as a vendor rep. for an apparel company. I tweaked their business structure to suit me and my personality. I happen to be a product snob and would NEVER have tried a product you had to buy online or in a catalogue. I would, for example, spend $250 on 1 ounce of eye cream, not to mention the rest of the lotions and potions for my face!! Anyway, it came down to me looking for an excellent eye cream and I finally broke down and tried Arbonne. This is when I fell in love with the product and decided to try making a business from it. I don't try and recruit people to do the business, I have just steadily built up a clientele over the years. My babies doctor actually recommended Arbonne's baby wash and lotion, and my mothers plastic surgeon (she had her eyes done!!) recommended Arbonne's eye cream. Anyway, this is what works for me. Great product sells itself and it is minimal work and no investment. Hope this helps!!

By now you've probably heard or read about the many toxic chemicals that are in personal care and cleaning products these days. As a mom I'm sure you feel concerned.

I've been a Diamond Rep. with Neways International for over 10 years. We are looking to expand our team here in Michigan. The timing is so right for these products. We have a full line of nutritional, personal care, cosmetic and household products that are free of harmful chemicals and are environment friendly. Our products have been evaluated by Dr. Samuel Epstein, head of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, as the safest products in the world. Our company is owned and funded by Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Scranton and MIT Universities.

You can learn more about Neways at; http://www.wealthpartners.net

Then you can reach me at my home office at ###-###-####.

I have a special gift of free lip gloss for those who are interested. If you'd like to become a Neways Rep. just ask me and I'll be happy to coach you to success. There is no fee to sign up and you'll get a free website. We teach and train our team on how to market their business online as well as offline.

What about something like babysitting at your home, dog sitting/pet sitting?

I personally have done a direct sales business before and although I learned a lot and changed as person it didn't make me the kind of income I was looking for.

Hi Sonya,

I've been working from home for several years now. I was like you and looked into several other businesses as well. I even tried a few, but discovered it just wasn't a right fit for me. I kept hoping there was something that I could do that made sense and I could feel right about sharing with family and friends.

That was when I found the Mom Team. As soon as I listened to the information I knew my search was over. The company we work with provides a way to replace regular household products with safer more natural alternatives. All of this for less money than I was spending before.

At the time our family suffered from various forms of asthma. Mine was te worst. The nebulizer and steroid meds became a daily ritual.
I tried this more natural line of products "Green" in nature, to replace the things we currently used in our home. After completely converting our home to using these products we were able to put that nebulizer in the drawer and get off all meds. It was great to feel good again! I love to share this with others like you because I know it works and can mean so much to your future health.

Since I've been in this I have seen many people improve other health issues such as eczema, psoriasis, Lupus, and MS, just to name a few. We've also been able to use the money we've made to climb out of debt. It's been a wonderful journey for us!

If you'd like to find out more, just go to http://ThisFamilyCounts.com and click on "Get More Info". I'll contact you shortly!

Hi Sonya-
My name is K. S. and I also work from home with Rodan and Fields Skincare.They have invented 5 different products to combat different skin concerns. (wrinkles, sin damage, sensitivity, blemishes) It is a one of a kind company, as they invented Proactiv. I have been very successful at it and there is so much support around the Ann Arbor, Novi, Detroit area. If you are interested, you can come with me to a meeting that will show all about the business and how to be successful. I would love for you to come with me. It is also a great way to get out every once in a while too. Please let me know if you are interested. I do want you to know this is no gimmick and it is very easy to make a full time salary while still being at home.

Hi Sonya! Did you end up finding something that you could do from home and make great $$? I'm a Rep. for Silpada Designs and absolutely LOVE it!! I am 39 yrs. old also and have two children, ages 10 & 5. I read some of the responses you received and just had to respond. This could be a really good fit for you. Silpada is a company where you get to WEAR the gorgeous product that you sell and you don't have to carry ANY stock. Also, there are NO quotas, NO presentations, and the product is shipped DIRECTLY to the customers. I haven't found a better company out there!! You really might want to take a look. I'd be happy to email you info or give you the link to my website so you can see our new catalog. My email is [email protected]____.com
Would love to tell you more!

Hello, Sonya! I just recently joined Mamasource and noticed your ad for SAHM business opportunities. Yes, there are lots of scams! When I was looking, I wanted a family-oriented company that offered a small, healthy line of product that was not makeup, juice, or cleaning products. I've done that. Welcome to Mia Bella Gourmet Candles! No, they are not the typical "soy" candle..even better! They have combined vegetable and plant materials to come up with a product that has NO carcinogens, petroleum or "black" soot. Our wicks are lead-free (jar candles have two wicks). We have true-to-life scents (over 90 of them!), and are great for allergy/asthma sufferers. Plus last 50% longer!
Mia Bella is fun and easy, plus will cost less than $50.00 to start (includes your own website). If you want further info, log onto www.lorriedomack.scent-team.com (has lots of information, plus you can register for a FREE candle), or E-Mail me at [email protected]____.com this will help in your decision! God bless..L.

Hi Sonya, I lost my job of 32 years & have just joined a "Team" of wonderful, positive, energetic people who are spreading the word of a tremendous juice, called MonaVie.
It provides 15 fruits in every bottle. It's a Health & Wellness product that has surpassed sales of two well-known computer companies. If you would like to try the product or get together to find out more, please send me a reply & maybe we could hook up if you would be interested in marketing this product.
