Hello, I am a soon to be single mommy. And I really want to be with my baby as much as I can, so I am looking into working from home jobs. It seems difficult, and a lot of scams. Does anyone have any recommendations?

If you are a Breastfeeding Mom, you can contact your local WIC and see if they offer Peer Counseling programs and you can counsel and help prenatal and breastfeeding Moms. Its very rewarding! I am in Erie County, and its volunteer for 6 months, then is a paid position. Its different all over the country. Some counties pay right away. I get to "work from home" because most of the work I do is phone calls. I have once monthly mandatory meetings which I can bring the baby to, and if I ever need to go into the WIC office to meet with a Mom, I can also bring the baby. It works out very well for us!

Hi Nannette,

I emailed you a response earlier but I don't think it went through as I did not get a confirmation. I hope you don't receive two messages from me. :)

I would like to share with you what I have been doing for the past six years. I was introduced to my company through my nutritionist. At the time, I was complaining about a lack of energy and it wasn't because my daughter had been born 4 months prior. She nursed all day long and would sleep through the night. I had my 8 hours of sleep and would still fall asleep at night while watching t.v. It was recommended that I try the Shaklee Basics and Energizing Soy Protein and within a week I felt alive again. Apparently the vitamins I was using were not pure. Gradually I began trying all of their products and found that not only did we all feel healthier, but my girls stopped missing days from school due to illness. Even I stopped catching what they used to catch from schoolmates. My neutrophils have always been low which meant that if I got sick, it lasted 8 weeks or longer with me hopping from one antibiotic to another. Since Shaklee, I've been antibiotic free.

I found this company was an efficient and safe way to earn an extra income. There are over 83,000 annual tests done on their products to ensure purity and everything is money back guaranteed if not completely satisfied. I've had the opportunity of meeting new people, travelling and experiencing an extended family. I thank God for this blessing in my life.

Jobs can be temporary with limited earning potential, but you are in control of your earnings when owning your own business.

By working this business from home you'll gain certain tax advantages which will help save you money on taxes & have you will have the flexiblitiy to stay at home to be Emma. It's a win/win situaltion.

My husband and I have a work from home job, and three kids ages 6,5 & 3. We are Shaklee distributors on a part-time basis. It is an internet based business and you can do it from not only the US, but it is international. Shaklee has been in business for 52 years and they are a natural health and wellness company and they do their own research, have been published in medical journals etc.

We have been with Shaklee for 1 1/2 years and we just got back last week from their incentive trip to Hawaii! Which is someplace we always wanted to go. We are working on earning the all inclusive Mayan Rivera trip for Nov 2009. I'd love to help you get there as well if you find that Shaklee is a fit for you.

Please check out our website and my phone is also listed if you would like to talk, I'd love to help.

Good luck with Emma and congratulations!

Would you like to earn money from a 20+ year old company debt-free and you can sign up free which I don't know how much longer that free fee will last. It was $25 fee to sign up, but needn't to pay since it's free, but act ASAP. Until we are able to get our own website set up, check my mother-in-law's website www.EcoQuest.com/truax and if you sign up and not happy with it and it's not for you, then you can stop and not do anything and you haven't lost any money and your name will be on it for a year and if you decide to get back into it, then you can. After a year from the day you sign up, you will no longer be in it. You have not lost anything, but if you want some help along the way, let me know and we'll be willing to help you along since we know what it's like not to have the income coming in and we want me to stay home with our children. Be careful other businesses out there, they expect you get all the products to stay in the business and you haveto keep buying the products every so often just to stay in it. This business isn't and go to the website I gave you and check it out and if you want to talk with us, e-mail me through mamasource and we'll help you any way we can.

Hi,
I am an independent demonstrator for a company called Uppercase Living. This is a brand new company (2 years old), and it’s taking off like wildfire. It is just starting to make its way to the east coast. I am in Long Island and am 1 of 2 demonstrators here. I don’t believe there is anyone in the NYC. With Uppercase Living you can choose from hundreds of professionally designed phrases, quotes and meaningful sayings or you can design your own custom expressions. Easily applied, the vinyl lettering gives the effect that your wall has been hand painted. When you are ready for a change, simply peel the lettering off without damaging the surface. Being that you are in the city - this product is perfect for apartment dwellers that are not allowed to paint!!! You will need to put my demonstrator information below to access the online catalog.

There are some great, reputable network marketing companies that will allow you to be at home and achieve your dreams. Research them well- see how long they have been in business. See what their mission statement is. And ask distributors about the business and the products. Find a company that carries the products you are passionate about. I have been a distributor for Shaklee for 6 months now. I saw their cleaning products on Oprah and it was important for me to have non toxic cleaners in the house once I had my daughter. I also started using some of their nutritional products and I was hooked- they care about the planet, they are eco-conscious in every way. So they were in line w/the things that are important to me. It makes it that much easier to share my story! For me- I wanted to work from home, and this company has a group called Project MAHMA, which stands for Moms At Home making a Difference (and alot of money). That was what sealed the deal for me - they recognize and support us! I would love to chat more about my experience if you want. I sometimes have product parties at my home, but I dont touch on the earning opporunity in as much detail on those. I am having a Project MAHMA open house on 3/27 at 3pm and 7pm, and a health and wellness coach will be here to present the business opportunity. Maybe that would be good for you to attend!
