Hi M.,

I know exactly what you are going through. I was layed off after returning from maternity leave about a year ago. Thankfully, I had my part-time business. I applied to numerous companies, but EVERYONE is doing the same. So I decided to make my part-time business into full-time.

I am a Pampered Chef Consultant and I help families eat on a budget. I'm a mother to a 4 year old and an 1 year old (both girls). I love staying home with them and having the opportunity to work as little or as much as I like. I started with them back in August 2007 when I was 7 months pregnant.

The products sell it's self and you have FUN in the process. Consultants make around $100 per show (about 2 hours). The Pampered Chef is a great company with great people to help you achieve your dreams. You'll never have to worry about meeting a high sales quota or getting fired.

Let me know if this is something you may be interested in. I would love to have you on my team!

If you are interested and have many questions, I would love to come to your home and prepare a recipe for you and your friends and family. They will get to try all the awesome kitchen tools that prepares the meal in a flash.

Please let me know if you are interested. We have awesome Host specials going on right now.

Good Luck!

Have you heard of Mona Vie? It is a health juice that provides a world of benefits. My husband and I drink this wonderful juice ourselves and feel so much better for it. Sleep, joint pain and energy as well. Since starting this product, we have become distributors for Mona Vie.
We believe in this product so much that we are sharing our story with others and gettin them on it as well. In the process, we are making money. It is the #1 all natural health juice. It isn't sold in stores, it's only through social networking that this is done. When you have some time, take a look at the site and look at the 2 links to the right, Essence of Mona Vie and the flip chart. You can explore the products under the red Mona Vie tab. You can learn how to get this product and make money if you are interested.
I am a stay home mom as well. I was working a temp job that just wasn't concrete for me, I needed something that I could do that was for sure. We had a friend invite us to a tasting and we heard all about Mona Vie and the benefits and how we can make money. We have been in this business for 1 month now, and already make money. It's a wonderful company that wants everyone to succeed and make money that they offer incentives all the time. My husband told me not to look for a job anymore that I would be working on Mona Vie, talking to people and sharing our experiences with.
If you are interested, let me know. Take care and God Bless!
