I am sigle mom, do everything completely on my own, and need some extra income, badly! I am looking for something I can do in the evenings or on the weekends, without having to find/pay for a sitter or travel, that I can REALLY earn some money from. If any of you out there have any suggestions, please fill me in! I don't want to do something that everyone else already does i.e. Avon and Mary Kay, or anything that you have to put money into first. Thanks in advance for the help!

What can I do next?

Hello K.,

I work a full time and part time job. My part time job allows me to work around my schedule and I love it. I'm married with two boys and I understand what it's like to have to find a babysitter. Working this part time business allows me to spend time with them and work at the same time. Take a moment and visit my website, and read all the information on this business. Please leave your contact information if you are still interested in working a home based business. I look forward to hearing from you and sharing this awesome information.

Have you heard of Shaklee? (It is sales, like Mary Kay or Avon, but it's earth-friendly, non-toxic, and great stuff. It's been featured on Oprah three times in the past year.) Like any sales, it takes work to get started, but it can pay really well if you put the effort into it. (I teach and sell Shaklee on the side, and it's been a great thing for us.)

I'm a single mom of 2 boys and work a fulltime job during the day and then have my own business doing Scentsy during my extra time. Scentsy could be for you since we only have a couple of consultants in the D.C. area.

Have you heard of Scentsy "the Authentic Wickless Candles"? If not, then you should be the 1st to tell all your friends and co-workers. It's a great way to earn extra income, too!

It's a safe alternative than candles and is safe for DORMS, CLASSROOMS, APARTMENTS, RETIREMENT HOMES, OFFICES, HOUSES, or anywhere you would like a great smelling Aroma. Scentsy is a decorative warmer that use a 25 watt bulb to melt the wax. It's not hot to the touch and you can leave them on all day and not worry about something burning.

The company has been around for 3 years and is growing daily! The products sell themselve and nothing is over $25. If your looking for extra income and are willing to sell an awesome product then look no further. If your intersted please check my website out at or you may contact me at ###-###-#### or [email protected]!!!

Have a Scent-Sational Day!

I also am a single mom doing everything on my own. I have an 8 month old son. I am trying to stay at home with my baby for as long as possible and the company I am working with has allowed me to do so thus far.

Have you ever heard of Melaleuca? It's a Wellness Company. They manufacture wellness and environmentally sensitive products for the home and for personal care.

I'm trying to tell as many people as possible about these products and I think everyone should have them in their home.

ALTHOUGH...there is a start up fee...I know you may not want to hear it, but this month it is only $14.50 compared to $29 normally...with a 4 month money back guarantee. If it's not for you...cancel. I have been doing this for not even a month and my first check will be here the 15th. I am very excited about it!

If you are interested, I would love for you to contact me to view a presentation and hear more about them. The presentation is about 40 minutes long. They will tell you everything and anything you need to know about the company and how it operates. It is so informational. I learn more and more every time I watch it.

There are presentations everyday, so whatever time and day works best for your schedules, we can accommodate.

Best of Luck to You and Yours,

Hi K.,
There are several home based businesses you can try. I sold Jafra for about 3 years before I got deployed. Check them out

I know that you are probably getting a lot of responses but the company that I work with in my home based business is truly awesome! You can check it out at and take a tour to read all about it, watch the video and get more info...

I don't try to sell people into it - just provide the info... There are a lot of work from home scams so definitely do your research, ask a lot of questions and never sign up for something that you don't fully understand or agree with totally!

I wish you luck and feel free to contact me if I can help in any way! [email protected]

If you like to take vacations, or would like to take the kids to Disney and get paid when you do then read on.

Hello, K., I have my own online travel business. I have been able to cut the middle man out of my travel. I no longer pay Expedia, Price Line, or Cheap Tickets anymore. I am able to generate those commissions back into my home now. I would like to set up a 10-15 minute conference call while you are in front of your computer. This way I can show you how to save on your travel, get paid on your travel, and make the most of your travel tax deductible.

If you want more information call me. S. ###-###-####.
