Hi ladies,
I am a stay at home mom and the job that I had prior to having my daughter I worked about 90 hrs a week. With that being said, I will never go back! I cannot imagine working that much and having that take so much attention away from my daughter. I am interested in working a couple hours a week from my apartment and was wondering if anyone had ever used any of the online, work from home websites. I know that they all seem cheesy and they quite often look like scams, so I was wondering if anyone had successfully used one.
Thanks so much, your feedback is appreciated,

What can I do next?

Have you heard of Scentsy "Authentic Wickless Candle"? Extremely safe w/ no wick, soot, lead, or flame.

Our warmers are heated by a 25-watt light bulb in a 2-piece warmer, our candle bars are made of a soft wax packed full of incredible scents. With a burn time of 60-80 hours per Scentsy bar (and sometimes more), over 80 scents to choose from, a wonderful selection of warmers, plus car candles and room sprays, there's something for everyone.

Consider this: By the middle of May 2008, we sold over 1.5 million worth of warmers, bars, room sprays, and car candles. That's 495% more than during the same time period in May 2007. That's AMAZING! We also added 698 Consultants in this time period. THAT'S 612% MORE THAN WE HAD JOINED DURING THE SAME TIME PERIOD IN MAY 2007! If you are considering a home business, this is a great opportunity for you to get in early with a company that I believe will become a household name! Ask me about MY SPECIAL for anyone interested in BECOMING a Scentsy Consultant in the month of September!

Have a Scent-Sational Day!

Hello J. D,

My response is a little late but I figure better late than never. What I can suggest for you to do is direct selling. I am currently selling Stanley Home Products, Tupperware and Cookie Lee Jewelry and with all three of these you only need to put in a few hours a day. The best part about it you can even bring your daugther along to the parties!!!

If you would be interested let me know and I will give you all the info.

What did you do before you had your daughter? Is there any way that you can work on a contract basis doing what you did before? I was in a similar situation. I was working at an architecture/interior design firm as a designer prior to having my daughter and knew I couldn't put the same sort of hours in with a baby. I also wanted to be able to stay home with her full time. So I have been doing some freelance work and it has been working out great. The only issue I would warn you of is that as your daughter gets older it gets more and more difficult to work during the day. I usually end up working at night after she goes to bed (which is pretty exhausting) but well worth being able to spend the entire day with her. Good luck to you.
