G.G. asks from Minneapolis, MN

Looking for work from home ideas. I'm not really the sales consultant type (ie Mary Kay, Arbonne, Pampered Chef, Lia Sophia, CAbi, etc). While I'm not totally opposed to it, I just don't think it's my thing. Anyone have any experience with things like medical coding? Other ideas??? I don't even know where to start. Obviously, the more money made for the hours spent working would be best.

Dear G.,

I am the owner of an online Childrens Mall called Baby-Coop Club and maybe I can have as an Associate if interested go to the Site and see how to contact me if interested. The site is being however totally redone and being worked on right now. It maybe redone in about another 3 months or so. You would get a commission for every new Member that you sign up. If you do groups of members at one time it could be great money for you per hours. Example: I may allow up to 12.00 for associates for now and if you got a group of 10 and 8 signed up it would be for you 96.00 and take about 45 mins presentation and contacting the people to meet them where you decide is best to meet them. I can give many suggestions. By working this way versus per hr the compensation can be much higher! I am in the west suburbs of Minneapolis St Paul Metroplex (and someday if can handle would be a Leader as one of the early adopters. Also if neeing to leave your residence bringing your young kids along should not be much a problem but is good to have a friend or other to watch then either at home or while you are giving a presentation. You will not have to stock anything if dont want to though later that could be and option. You can email your resume if you would like to. And my being in the Metroplex area I could meet with you and personally coach about what an Associate does. I will also have an Intranet site for Associates starting out! Sincerely Steven C

Hi G.,
I totally understand that direct sales might not be your thing - it certainly wasn't mine - I have always said I was a terrible salesperson. That being said, I absolutely love my job as a stylist for Stella & Dot, an amazing boutique jewelry company sold exclusively through private trunk shows. The company is new and the jewelry is amazing. We grew 700% last year and the opportunity to grow your own business is huge. I work completely part time around my family's schedule and make great money doing something really fun. The jewelry is featured regularly in InStyle, Lucky etc and it is easy to get started. Check out my website at and tell me that you don't love the jewelry! Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi G.
I spent many years looking for SOMETHING I could do from home to help my husband with the bills. It was 4 years ago I came across the company I am with. I would suggest doing a lot of research of companies that are out there that offer home based businesses. Depending upon your passion will determine what you will find best for you. I had considered many "work from home" options such as computer work, coding, etc. but it was trading hours for dollars and if that is all you want...check it out. I liked the idea that I can build a distribution business from home and it will pay me the rest of my life and my income is willable for 2 generations. This company has the best compensation plan in the industry. I was going to school to be a nurse but I feel I am doing more for people with this company than I could being a wish you the very best in finding what you are looking for. I have a link to a presentation of my company and if you want to learn more you can contact me. We have an amazing support system in which we help others get exactly what they want. Right now I just want part time and so this works for me! I am changing lives as well as being a Mommy to my children :)

I would say check out if you like children...I am a stay at home military wife and was a nanny for a family and I didn't stay home but there are many people looking for childcare that want you to pick up the child or have them dropped off at your house and just make a profile and wait to get approved then start looking I am not sure how your area needs nannys but mine is like everyone being stationed military.

Hi G.,
I certainly not the sales consultant type either, but I have a passion for Shaklee because it literally saved my life. I started out just as a consumer. But I had to tell people about it. The people who witnessed the transformation wanted to know about it. All this to say, find something that you care about.
If you want to check out the Shaklee opportunity, go to They pioneered social marketing and have been around for over 54 years. They have the highest quality, most researched products bar none.
I hope you find something that works for you!
