Hi Jenny!

Yes I understand with everything else how hard it is looking for legit work at home. I have been a stay at home mom for about 7 yrs and I too started out looking for a work at home job. I found several differnt site some that wanted you to pay for their job boards, And some I did just that. Only to find out I would be making 7 to 8 dollars an hour (on top of trying to keep a 3 yr old and 4yr old quite for 3 to 4 hours) Of course these companies don't want the people calling to know that you are infact at home.

So I then started to take a different approach, I started looking into work at home business. I too not a sell person at all. Found tons of information and business out there. What I did in decideing was to make a list of thing I would do and a list of things that I would never do. That's when I found this great company. It has truly been a God sent. Now if you are serious about working from home I would get my list statred. And go for it Also listen to this call this business has truly changed or family( and still changing) I would like you to give me a honest opion of what you think even if you think this is not for you. 1-800-514-1258

Thanks in advance,
Patrice

P.S hope you find what you are looking for

Hi there,
Be sure to do your due diligence when researching potential business options. There are 3 things to look for when researching business plans:
1. The People
2. The Product
3. The Plan



You want to be in business for yourself but not by yourself. I work with a very diverse team and am always looking for people who are driven to make it happen. I teach people how to start a business part time alongside what they are currently doing. (In your case being a mom.)



Feel free to contact me,
Sincerely,
Margery

YES *raises hand*



I am a work at home mom. I am successful. Believe me when I say this because my husband has not worked since last April (LAST meaning 2008) (and not for lack of trying, trust me). I have been keeping our bills paid. Sheesh it's not easy.



I run a home child care. It's hard work, but it's so worth it. And it pays the bills. No, I'm not making tens of thousands, if that's your definition of success. But, I'm raising my child, we still have heat, water, a house and food on the table. My child is happy. 



Yes, I am a successful work at home mom. :)

Hi Jenny - I was a work at home Mom running a successful marketing consulting business out of my home for several years - my employees came to me. I think the key is to find something you love doing enough that you'll squeeze it in when you have to - my work at home days often started at 6 am and ended at 1 am the following day. I might only have put in 6 or 7 working hours - but they were tucked around school dropoffs, pickups, extra curricular activities for the kids, housework and everything else. If I'd dreaded "working" there's no way I'd have had the energy to jump on my laptop at 11 am to prepare a brief for a client that I'd promised for morning, or get up an hour early so that I could clear my inbox and get a head start on my day to "buy time" to walk my daughter to school and play with my son until the nanny arrived.

I moved the business out of my home when I realized that I needed more separation between work and family life - now I don't have to have the kitchen spotless at 8 am every day, I've contained my work day to, well, a workday and I still have the luxury of working from home whenever it suits me. Self employment and working at home isn't right for everyone - you might find you'd be happier with a part-time job that let's you "go somewhere" while the kids are in school, work a four hour shift and interact with other adults. All depends what YOU need from your work - financial and social!

Hi - I'm a self-employed management consultant. I left "employment" 6 years ago and I find that we do much better now financially, and I have more time for my family. Working from home allows me to have balance overall. Not always, mind you, a deadline is a deadline but I think my quality of life is better

Hi - My name is Kelly and I am an Indpendent Sales Representative and Unit Leader for Avon.  Avon was founded in 1886, so it is not a fly by night business or scam.  Avon's mission is to empower women from all walks of life and help them create better lives for themselves and their families. 



One thing you need to ask yourself, are you looking for a "job" or a "business opportunity"?  With your own business, comes business expenses, with a job, your company pays for everything, so keep that in mind.



When you become an Avon Independent Sales Representative, it is your own "business".  You are in business for yourself, but what is great, is you have the support of the Avon Corporation.  Avon supports their Independent Representatives and gives them Free online training, Free customer service, a Free personal website, the option to have your own webstore and the list is endless.  There is No inventory to carry, No quotas to meet, No in-home parties to host, No mandatory meetings to attend - you are in business for yourself.  You work when you want.  Avon is designed to fit into your lifestyle, not you fit into Avon's.  There is a startup fee for starting your own Avon "business".  But, it is only $10.00 - that is merely the cost to go out to lunch and I would say the $10 I paid, was one of the best $10 I've ever spent!   



If this sounds like something you may be interested in, then you owe it to yourself to check it out.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions, to get started or check out my website at www.youravon.com/kbusch



Say Hello to a New Tomorrow, Today!  With Avon, Anything is Possible!

Hello Jenny, I am an independent associate for Watkins. Watkins was established in 1868. For 140 years they have been committed to using the finest natural ingredients in their products. Their products are free of phthalates, sulfates and parabens and other chemicals that cause asthma, cancer and other adverse effects on your health. The have natural gourmet (spices, extracts, bread and dip mixes), personal care (deo, lotion, hand soap), home remedies, supplements,  home care (cleaners, laundry detergent, dish detergent) and much more. They recently launched a line of plant based home cleaners that everyone is going crazy about. 



You can build your business 3 different ways, you can sale products (have parties or just word of mouth) or you can use the products yourself and get other people to join under you and simply do the same (use the products and sign people up) , or you can do both. 


It costs $39.95 to join. You can read more about it on my website,


Or feel free to e-mail me, , and I will be happy to help in any way that I can. All of the products are backed by their 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee

I have tried several times to look for ways to make money at home. So far I just keep finding schemes (pyramid, multi-leveled business, etc.) most requiring either $ investments in product to sell and harassing friends for business. I have my college degree and would love to find something more legitimate to make a regular/small income at home just to help with family finances. I worked for a realestate agent for a while processing paperwork(stumbled into that one through an aquaintance-- when the realestate market fell so did her flexible cash to pay me) and then I worked in retail part time at night(missed family time with husband at night so it only lasted 9months), even tried Pampered Chef(Fun but ran out of friends to harass--didn't like harassing them either) There has to be something I could actually do for a company large or small and make money at home. If anyone has an actual suggestion that worked for them(or a resource to find such a job) I would and I'm sure many other people would love to hear it. Sorry this was so long, but I know lots of women who are struggling with the same issue.

I have to agree with the above posters; it depends on what you mean by successful. I have my own home business and I made a decent amount of money last year. Not enough to retire and cruise to Jamaica, but enough to be able to stay home with my kids and contribute to a two-income family. I made as much staying at home as I could have made at many office jobs and I was able to be here when my kids needed me. To me, that's pretty successful. Would I like to make more? Of course! Would I give up staying home to go back and work in an office? Nope!

Hi Jenny, my name is Haley and I am a work at home mom.  I have spent the last 10 years doing in home daycare and just recently began looking for something elso to do at home.  I was fortunate enough to find a company called Ameriplan.  I work about 15 hours a week and I am making a great income.  I have also been able to quit my home daycare business.  I love the freedom it gives me to spend with my family.  I would love to talk to you more about it.  Please visit my website at http://www.sensiblebiz4you.com

"However, most of those options involve working for a company...not working for yourself.  And as we all know, many of those are schemes, they are not legitimate businesses."





The above quote is NOT necessarily a true statement. Yes, there are many companies out there that follow a scheme such as MLM (multi-level marketing) but they ARE legitimate businesses. You are affiliated with a company, but you have an independent business of your own-you are not an employee of that company. Such companies are Avon, BeautiControl, Mary Kay, Entertaining at Home, Tastefully Simple, Noah's Ark Animal Workshop and many, many more. All of these are legitimate companies in which very lucrative careers can be made. Pampered Chef, for instance, works in a similar fashion as well. This company was absorbed by Warren Buffet (Berkshire Hathaway) a few years ago and is certainly legitimate. As one of the world's richest and smartest businessmen, Mr. Buffet would not tarnish his brand name by being involved with any company that was not legitimate. Please do not confuse or imply that the word scheme is the same as the word scam. They are not  necessarily one in the same.



The whole point of this post is it's really up to each individual to choose a career path (or job) that suits their needs, interests and skills. Some may be looking for a job that earns and hourly wage, some may be interested in starting their own business from scratch and some may be interested in an mlm/direct sales type business. All of these are great options to seek for those yearning to work from home.  The most important thing is, you MUST educate yourself about what it is you are seeking BEFORE becoming involved with it.  Checking wth outside sources (such as the Better Business Bureau) is a good place to start.

Hi Jenny,



I suppose it depends on what you consider successful ...



I know there are so many options out there for working from home.  However, most of those options involve working for a company...not working for yourself.  And as we all know, many of those are schemes; they are not legitimate businesses.  If you are looking for something that is purely YOUR business where you can work at your own pace, your own hours, etc, have you ever thought about becoming an internet marketer?  No, you don't need to be a computer whiz or know everything about technical design to become one.  In case you aren't familiar with it, here's a high level overview:



1. As an Internet marketer it is your job to send people (create traffic) to company websites.



2. When those people make purchases you are paid from the company who owns the product. There are literally 100,000's of companies online who are willing to pay you up to 90% of the entire product sale price just for sending people to their site.



3.  Each pay period you will receive a check in the mail that you take to your bank and deposit (or cash). Some companies will pay you directly to your Paypal account, or even directly to your bank account via wire transfer.



Making money on the Internet is not a get rich overnight scheme. If it were that easy everyone would be doing it!  So, what it comes down to is you have to learn the proper internet marketing techniques in order to succeed. If you are willing to put in the time to learn, this can be a VERY profitable business.  I did ALOT of searches on this topic and finally found a website that can teach you the techniques you need.  It's called Wealthy Affiliate.  They give you step by step instruction on how to get started as well as have continuous online support through forums, email etc. You have to sign up as a member of the site, and there is small monthly fee to continue your membership ($39)  HOWEVER, because they provide so much for you on the site for free, such as free web hosting, a free web site builder, etc, that is really the only amount you have to pay...you won't need to come up with "start-up money" for your business. And, it's not like you have to continue membership with them permanently, you could always sign up for 2-3 months, learn what you need to learn, then cancel your membership, there is nothing contractual.  At least the Wealthy Affiliate site can teach you what you need in order to maintain your own internet marketing site.



Here's a link to them for you to take a look at it: 



http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com?a_aid=He...



Just to clarify, you do NOT have to sell anything…nor do you have to ‘recruit anyone underneath you’ to make a profit.  Your primary purpose is to drive traffic to vendor sites.  Hopefully this information helps you or at the very least, gave you another idea to look into.  By the way, if you kinda want to know what an affiliate site could look like, feel free to take a look at mine: 



Obviously, yours would look completely different, but at least you get the idea.



Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! :)



Christina

As Michelle asks, what is success and what is employed?



I am self-employed, and making a good return for the amount of time I put in. I know many others in the same boat.

Depends on what you consider successful. Each person's idea of successful is different. Some just want to pay a bill off or pay for a vacation. While others may want to replace an income or some just want to earn free trips. I know some of each of these in my business.
