Any ideas what the best options are and what scams there are out there! I would really like to work from home! So I would like to get into something that I can stay at home and still bring in the money! Thanks

First idea is Juice Plus... it is a great product, you can sell from your home. www.juiceplus.com

The second idea is a website you can look into

Hi! C.,

I am proud of you for taking the steps to stay at home. I am currently working a home-based business along with my current teaching job to be able to stay home next school year. I just started the business and am in a contract with a school so I have to wait until that expires.
I have an Arbonne business and it is wonderful. The products are amazing, but the business is phenomenal. I am having a blast as well as making money. Arbonne has a training program and your sponsor is there to help every step of the way. You are in business for yourself but not by yourself.
If you would like more info. please contact me at [email protected]____.com

I'm not sure how much money you would like to bring in but I can tell you a little bit about what I do. I am a stay at home mom of three kids 3 and under. I am a demonstrator for The Angel Company which sells, rubber stamping and scrapbooking supplies. I'm very much into paper crafting so it was a great choice for me because I am doing what I really like to do. You get 30% off, and make 25% commission on sales. There are a number of ways you can do it. I go to people's houses for a "stamp party" and we have fun learning new teachniques and making things they can take home. When we are done, they get a chance to look through the catalogue. Over 70% of the stamp sets we offer are $10.95 and under.

You can also just do "book parties". Where someone can take a catalogue with them for a few weeks and collect orders. They turn them all in at once andyou don't even have to really do any of the work.

These are just some ideas for you. It's one of those businesses that you are successful in as long as you work at it. I am doing MUCH better than I anticipated.

I've been a SAHM for 5 years now, and a WAHM for the last 2. If you have any talent in graphic design or just have a creative mind, you might be interested in what I'm doing. I work through a company called CafePress designing products and selling them online. I'm currently running 4 shops online that have brought me a yearly income of more than I ever made working outside the home. If this is something you're interested in, just send me a message and I can help you with set up.

Hello C.,

Try looking at your current interests or hobbies. Is there any way to monetize those?

I like to write articles and get paid anywhere from $5 on up to write about things I like to do, places I like to go, reviewing businesses or restaurants, etc. The link for Associated Content is http://www.associatedcontent.com/join.html?invite_id=2944... (that is my invite link).

Also, last year I started making soap at home with my girls. We ended up with so much soap, I started selling to friends and family. Now I own a business and sell locally and online.

I've been involved in multiple MLM/Network Marketing businesses. Don't let people scare you away from that!!! MLM is NOT EVIL! LOL One just has to be careful about which company they choose. Do some background checks. Also, look at your local market and see what might sell well. I was with a company that sold nutritional products. The company and products were great but didn't sell well in this area. They were too expensive.

Direct selling is usually involved so if you like to meet/talk to new people, that might be the way to go. I sell healthy coffee for a MLM/Direct Sales company and have been very happy with the company and my sales. It goes great with my soap and I make gift baskets a lot.

Of course makeup is always fun to sell. Mary Kay or Marlo Quinn would be good/reputable companies. Be wary of new companies...I am a member of an online business networking group and they just had a disaster where a lady started a "fake" company and screwed thousands of people out of their money. Be sure it's a well established company and check them out at www.bbbonline.org

Hope you find this information helpful and don't hesitate to contact me if you would like more information.

C. B,
I am also interested in finding something to do from home. We have 4 kids (ages 9, 7, 4, 3). I started working part-time since #4 was born. We could use a bit extra each month just to get by. Please let me know if you find anything. I will do the same. I am worried about getting involved in a scam. I have looked into a few things but no luck so far. I heard on daveramsey.com that any of these businesses that ask for money up front is probably not a good idea.

Good luck,
J.

First of all, scams are not the best choice of words, besides it sounds like you're looking for something illeagle to do. I have never given the thought, but they advertize selling products all the time. Little novelties and things. They show it on tv all the time and I can't think of the name to save my soul

Hi C.,

Saw your post from a time back and thought I'd share with you what I shared with a couple of others. I think this is one opportunity you'd love and wouldn't want to pass up on.

I'm a 39 year old SAHM and love what I do! But, to make things a little easier financially on our family I signed up as an Indep Avon Sales Rep. This allows me to do what I love most, which is spend time with my beautiful family. Selling Avon has helped our family have extra when extra normally wouldn't be there. Its fun having PLAY money! This allows us to go out to eat occasionally, shop for fun stuff that we might not otherwise be able to afford and put money in savings.

The only draw back that I found in being a stay-at-home-mom is that all my friends couldn't afford to stay at home. Car payments, mortgages and other expenses kept them from doing so. I found my days were spent with just me, cleaning the house and watching Soap Operas throughout my day. I needed a little more social interaction. With Avon I've made a lot of new acquaintances and incredible friendships this past year, which I otherwise wouldn't have necessarily had. And with the wonderful world of syberspace it makes my Avon business so easy and fun, knowing I don't have to fill out a lot of paperwork. With the click of a few buttons my order is processed and ready to go.

C.,it only costs $10 to start your Avon business. And, Avon provides everything you need to assist you on an incredible journey of finding out that you truely are an incredible individual and dreams really can come true.

In my first year of selling Avon with my husband and I's earnings together, we paid off misc bills, went on our first REAL vacation in 20 years to Arizona and New Mexico for 9 amazing days and we put a new roof on our home. Without Avon there it would have taken a lot longer than a year to accomplish what we did in only 12 months.

Someone once said, Sometimes even eagles need a push! I'm glad I pushed myself out of my nest. LOL

I would love to have you on my team C.! Contact me at [email protected]____.com and we'll get you started!

Hi C.:

I have been a stay at home mom for about 12 years. In that time i have taught aerobic classes parttime until about 8 months ago, a friend of mine introduce me to some great skincare products by a company called Arbonne. I had never heard about this company nor did I ever do any networking business before. But, i was very intrigue since all their products are natural with no harmful chemicals or animal by products. She also share with me the business side of the company and I was sold. I joined Arbonne about 8 months ago and I love the company and the people that I am part of this business with. I think this is a great company and I recommend anyone who is looking to do something from home and add income to their household this company is worth looking into. I would be more than happy to talk to you and send you out so information. My name is C. my phone number ###-###-#### or my email [email protected]____.com. Please give me a call and I can share with you a little more about the company.

C. i have been in the same position that you are in. I decided to invest in owning my own Tastefully Simple business. Until the 31st of January to become a consultant with tastefully simple it is only $99. For that $99 you will get your start up kit that is valued at almost $400. Calculating it you would only need to sell $275 to recoup your business investment.In the start up kit there is actually $100 worth of retail items in the kit. I am sure that you have outside sources to sell the products to without even having to have parties, i.e., school, moms group, family, friends. However the parties are Always fun. It is nice to have a get away for a couple of hours with other adults a and you make money just for hanging out with people and having them sample great food. Everyone loves to eat at parties!! After a couple of months I even started my own website and over the last several months my website has generated anywhere from $50 to $200 a month without me even having to do anything but have it and people find me. The great thing about my business is once people buy it the eat it and run out and they always want to buy more so with each sale you make you have reorders that come in as well. It is a great opportunity and for only $99 you can't beat a deal like that to own your own business. Let me know if I can help with anything and check out my website.

Good luck and best wishes. Hope to hear from you soon.
