Hi T.,
I have a Shaklee homebased business. It is 100% legitimate and credible - the company has been a leader in the health and wellness industry for over 50 years. I have 2 children that I am able to be home with thanks to my Shaklee business. I help other moms who want to be home with their children, build businesses. We've got a great group!

If you would like more information, I would love to talk with you!

Beware of the companies that want you go purchase their phone plan or system so that you can make phone calls from home. I did a phone interview with a "wellness" company where they want you to pay $35 for their phone system. It's all a big scam. They want you to call to generate leads and what you are selling is supplemental insurance. I think that there is legit suplemental insurance but I really do think that a trustworthy company wouldn't have a "virtual" call center, meaning most of their employees work from home. I think most of what you come across for work from home will be a scam or will a multi-level marketing company, like Avon or Pampered Chef. I tried Avon, but found that there are so many reps in my area already and I ended up spending way more than I was making. Some of my friends who work from home were lucky enough to work for companies for a few years and when they had children, their employers were awsome enough to work out a telecommute deal with them. Good luck to you, hope I don't seem to sceptical - but I've been researching this for a few years now. I want to start babysitting from home, myself. A nice extra little income and playmates for my kids and then my whole focus can be on my children and I won't have to divide my time for caring for my kids and working from home.

I am a Tastefully Simple Consultant and it is a small fee to start up. If you have any questions please contact me. Not sure if this is what you want to do? Host a party and try the product and see how easy it is to do.
I am a mom of a 5 yr. old boy entering kindergarden and a 2 yr old girl. I do work part time out of the house but come fall I will be doing Tastefully Simple part time out of the home and I can't wait.
Good luck

Similar to companies like Tastefully Simple and Discover Toys, I sell for Baby Splendor. I'm one of 2 consultants in the Chicago area so the market is wide open here. The products are adorable -- I use most of with my son. There is a small fee to start up as well but it is completely legitimate. I personally know the founders of the company and wouldn't work with them, or serve on their Advisory Board, if I thought it was a scam. Feel free to e-mail me at [email protected]____.com you want to check out the products, visit www.babysplendor.com.

I am involved with Kara Vita, a direct sales skin care company. I still work full time at a job that I love, and do this on the side, but there are quite a few moms that do this full time and are able to stay at home with their kids. If you want more information, check out the website www.karavita.com or email me at [email protected]____.com. I have product samples that you could test if you were interested. Good Luck!
