Hi Moms! I am a new mother of a 5 month old boy and I am not ready to bring him to daycare or find a baby sitter, we also don't live near family or anywhere I would trust bring him. My husband and I are ok with me not working but I would like to be able to do a little something with all this time I have on my hands. If any of you moms have suggestions about stay at home work that is easy to get into I would love to hear! Thanks!

What can I do next?

Have you thought of doing an in home daycare? With the economy the way it is parents are looking for cheaper alternatives to daycare centers. Even if you just took on one kid to watch at $100 week; that's $400 a month. It's something to think about.

If you are good at looking up answers to questions, check out http://542542.com/agent. It's a legit way to make money. I do it in my spare time and have been payed.

You can also get payed to do surveys. Pinecone research is looking for more people, and if you message me your e-mail I can send you a link to sign up. They pay $3 a survey and sometimes send you free things to try.

Check out ChaCha.com also they seem to be hiring now. http://becomeaguide.chacha.com/ I also work for them a bit, and they are legit.

J., I just started selling Pampered Chef about 3 months ago and LOVE it! I've tried many of the other things (make-up, drinks, etc) and have been AMAZED at how well PC sells itself. I'm due with my 3rd in about a week and am going to stay at home once again and am happy to know that PC will provide me with some extra income, not to mention a chance to get out and interact with adults! ;) Let me know if youre interested. Good luck!

Hi J.,

I applaud your decision to stay home with your child. It will make a great difference in your relationship and help him in his early growing years. (Not knocking anyone who does work and put their child in child care, but I think it's great when you have the option to stay home and you take it.) You are smart, too, to know that you need to find something that will help you grow as a person. The most important part of your decision is finding something that you have a passion for. Then, it's not selling. It's sharing what you love.

I have had my own business with Celebrating Home. We use to be Home and Garden Party, but we changed our name when H&GP acquired Home Interiors. I have been in this business since April 1999 and LOVE IT! If you would like to see the website for the company, go to: www.celebratinghome.com/sites/shopwithDiane and look through the products and the business opportunity. The most important part of owning your own business is that you can put God first, Family second and business third and have a balanced life. If you are interested in hearing more about the company or your options for joining the company, please let me know. I am offering 1/2 off a business starter kit during the month of December, 2009.

There is no obligation to talk with me and I'd love to see if this business can work for you and your family.

God bless and Merry Christmas.

Hi J., I live in southlake and am the mother of 4. I am in the same situation you....living here with no family. After my second child was born I was looking for something to do for myself. I asked around and was told Mary Kay had a great opportunity. It was exactly what I was looking for: no quotas, work when I want, and a great reorder business. I would be happy to give you more details with no obligation, 8yrs later I still love this business and my kids do too!

I started my Mary Kay business just before my son was born. I knew I'd need a little something just for "me". I had always been a career gal and staying home, I knew, would potentially drive me crazy! It has been wonderful. I have watched ladies work 2 hours a week and others become the bread winners in their family, driving free cars. I love a business where you can MAKE IT WHAT YOU WANT. No one tells you to sell more....no quotas.....you give to it what you've got and make it what YOU want it to be. A friend of mine is already a top Director and driving a Pink Cadillac after just 11 months. Others, like me, have been in this business almost a decade and "tinker" to make some side money and have fun with other ladies. You can view the opportunity on my website. The cost is so minor that when I got started I thought, "worst thing that could happen is I have a year's worth of cosmetic samples for myself." I had been using only Mary Kay since I was 16 so that worked for me! My business took off and I LOVE it! I service women all over the United States and every time my family moves, my business goes with me! Best of luck to you! God bless! www.marykay.com/tpreston

answers from Chattanooga on

The internet provides so many ways to work from home - it's almost impossible NOT to find something you enjoy doing in your life and then creating a way to create income from it.

You can sell art online .. that is very big now as independent artists wish to remove that nasty middle man and keep the costs down. Musicians are doing the same, using sites like CD Baby to sell their songs / CDs. Bloggers are getting paid to write about issues that newspapers may not be covering! Raise money for causes, non profits and create the business relationships that last a lifetime. These are just a few ideas, but I am sure the ladies on here will have many more.

Good luck on your new journey as a parent. The road is not easy, but the rewards are priceless.

D.

I wanted to make some additions to this. I think the first thing you need to do is brain storm! Sit down and figure out the following:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. What activities do you enjoy doing
2. What you can make / create that would be "sell-able"
3. How much time to you have to invest?
4. If online, will you need high speed internet?
5. Are there friends or family that might also help with whatever project you begin for additional sources of income?
6. Types of stuff being sold online currently: just about everything.
6a. Where? There are so many sites, I will list the ones I am familiar with upon request.
7. Will it require any money upfront to begin?

These are just a few to get you started. Once you actually begin to evaluate yourself - I am confident you will find an incredible amount of support, as you already have. Just ask! These ladies will share.

Many blessings!
