I'm a freelance fiction editor.
I've been successful at it so far, but I'm still learning a lot and do not consider myself a professional.
I got started by making friends with writers (I'm a writer myself) and started critiquing and proofreading their stories or portions of their novels as a favor. After a while I realized that it was something I was pretty good at and could eventually turn into a career.
Besides my degree in English, I am self-trained. I read every blog and book on the subject I could, including textbooks with exercises, and practiced a lot before I started charging.

I sell Gold Canyon Candles. I have been doing this for 5yrs now, and I absolutely love it. We have so many different types of fragrances and products. There are 2 kits that you can purchase, but you can earn them for free one is $99 and the other $150 broken down into payments to make it more affordable should you not earn them for free. I used to like another candle company "Y" but I tried a car freshener from this company and then a candle, and I fell in love with the product and the price. My husband recommended me signing so I could at least get my candles at a discount and it has turned into my only income My motto is "I started this to support my candle habit and now it supports me". We have monthly calls and meetings for those of us who live close but there are also FB pages that we all use so no matter where you live there is always someone to talk to or ask questions. I believe that if you do something you love it will show and you will be very successful!

Just want to see what everyone does?
My sister and I have our own company that helps moms start their own home based business using their skills and hobbies. I offer online business courses, marketing and promotion idea subscriptions and lots more in the works.
Are you successful at it?
Yes...very successful because I LOVE what I do. I watched my super talented friends make cake sculptures that belonged on a magazine and painted illustrations that rival children's books and then have them ask how to make money from home. It became my hobby to help my friends and family start their own business and has just grown.
How did you get started?
My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and I became her primary caregiver. I couldn't work a traditional job because of all of the appointments, surgeries and treatments. My sister and I started Green Apple Ideas during this period.
What is your start up fee?
Not really applicable to my business, but online courses are $100 and we have had alot of people tell us that they should be priced over $1000. We want to make them affordable though. My passion is helping other moms have freedom to take care of their own families from home.
How do you train other people or how do you get trained?
I guess the training would be the online business course itself. You can learn more about it here: http://greenappleidea.com/?p=253

Yes, I quit my corporate job.
I went to a party and loved the idea I could directly help people through my extensive study of interpersonal relationships, psychology, and degree in biomedical sciences
$179 or $249 for $600 or $1000 worth of product, respectively. No difference in commission - pick the kit you can afford. You get cue cards and a free SquareUp credit card reader in a branded leather keyring case so you can get paid the night of the party.
Live touring seminars, web-based self-paced training, weekly new consultant calls that are recorded if you can't make them live, online training for presentations and hostess coaching, the New Consultant Hotline that's available in your first 90 days, my sponsor, the Facebook groups for consultants, local group meetings, and outside resources that we were introduced to at conferences and convention such as Dr. Drew, Dr. Sue Johannsen, Dr. John Gray, Dr. Sadie Allison, Karen Phelps, Dana Wilde and Steve Wiltshire.
To the girl that asks how you get bookings and interest - hon, it's Passion Parties. Everyone knows who we are and sometimes the leads re so plentiful consultants will travel 3-6 hours to keep a hostess happy because everyone in her area is already booked. If you're not getting 2-3 bookings per party talk to your sponsor or higher upline.

I very recently started with a party plan company called Origami Owl. This unique jewelry company specializes in helping you to create your story in a locket. You start with a fashionable locket, add charms that tells your story, add a custom chain, dangle and a handstamped plate. It is so cute and great for every occassion, birth of a child, wedding, in memory of a loved one, just because, graduation, to show school pride etc.
So far I am really happy with my results. This was started by a 14 year old looking to make some extra money. It started with their party plan division in November 2011 so I feel I am on the ground floor of one of the hottest jewelry trends in the market. With all WAH jobs you get out of it what you put into it and I am going for it!
Good Luck to you and let me know if you have any questions.

Hi! I am a Young Living Dist. Young Living makes and distributes therapeutic grade essential oils. I was introduced to the oils after debilitating health issues. They have been truly amazing for my entire money. Initially I did not become a distributor to build a business. However, I am always so excited when I talk about them people were interested. That's when I knew I was onto something and MADE it a successful business. What I love about it is that I don't have to sell anything. I tell me about it, about how to use oils, how it can green their lives and holistically help their families health...they become members or customers and I receive commission. It is sort of like Sam's Club. They become a member and you benefit. When they refer members you benefit..It cost me $40 to join. Best $40 I EVER spent. I have an awesome upline who provides training for me. I was a realtor prior to the health issues I was having an specialized in aggressive internet marketing. I am using that knowledge to help building training materials for my down line. :) Hope this helped!

Hi I'm an Energy Associate as well and I must agree with the other post this is a great opportunity for WAH Moms. I am with Independence Energy Alliance-we offer great rates, green energy, 5 - 10% cash back at the end of the year and unemployment protection (will pay 3 months of energy bill if you become unemployed) all for customers.
As an associate you get much more - weekly bonus checks and monthly compensation from energy usage from your network of customers who you've help save on their energy bill. Our parent Energy Company is backed by big investors as Warren Buffet. This is a multi billion dollar industry that is changing lives everyday.
Again, there's no selling of products or anything (I've been in companies like that before). We help people save money and they receive cash back thru Green Energy concepts. So we help save the Earth and help save everyday people money while earning an income (A Win/Win for everyone). This a truly residual income I receive because it's based off of everyday Energy consumption, something we all use!

I am an Energy Consultant with Ambit Energy (it was on the list of WAH jobs that Katherine posted). I have found great success. It has actually changed my life! I started with Ambit because they were referred to me to use as my electricity provider. I relocated to a different state and didn't kow that they had MANY utility providers. Anyway, my consultant sent me a thank you letter for using the service and for allowing her to be my consultant. She also included a little note about a business opportunity. I contacted my consultant and she told me all about HER experience with the business. The startup fee is $429. You get a training kit, business cards, DVD's and magazines to handou, two websites (one to sign up your customers and one to sign up your consultants), you get a planner, you also get a "back office" which keeps tracks of your entire busniess. The best part of all is that you get FREE gas and electricity being a consultant!
It's important that you join the right team of consultants. Getting with the right consultants mean learning the ropes from them! You get to learn their approaches, strategies and what works fr them! Ambit also holds weekly meetings for consultants, they have weekly phone calls and lots of seminars. Included in your kit is astartup video, but my team of consultants proved to be the BEST training for me!
The reason that I love my job is because I'm not selling anything (I suck at selling) but I'm signing people up for a service that they're using anyway. In spite of what happens economywise everyone still need thei utilities! Ambit offer great low rates and we give our customers the opportunity to get their utility services free of charge! Good luck all!

Right before the birth of my second child, I launched a health and wellness buisness that has changed my life on so many levels. Not only are the products incredibly amazing, the business opportunity is even better! If you are looking for an extra stream of income, want more freedom and financial flexibility, time with family, wonderful travel incentives, being debt free, retirement savings and helping other people achieve their goals this is an opportunity for you!!
In this day and age we are all wanting the benefits of Safe, Pure, Beneficial and Natural products to use on ourselves and our families... I have FINALLY found that and the peace of mind that comes with knowing there are NO parabens, phthalates, animal products or by-products, mineral oils or artificial dyes in these AMAZING products. Your skin AND the environment will love and thank you forever!! :)
For more info, please dont hesitate to contact me directly. Have an AWESOME week!

I help small, mom-run businesses create and launch their blogs or websites.
I also do marketing writing and copywriting for a variety of clients, from PR agencies and magazines to websites of small businesses and parenting sites.
I had virtually no start up capital, as I had my own laptop.
As I started to get more work, I began to concentrate on helping moms with their online marketing concerns, their blogging, etc. Eventually, I began to outsource some of my work to subcontractors so that I could focus on the creative aspect of my job.

Hi Jennifer, I know you posted this question over a month ago, but I am not on here very much. I did want to answer you question though.
I am with a training and support team called Work at Home United and we are partnered up with a eco friendly manufacturing company called Melaleuca. I have worked from home with them for 5 years now.
I am successful! I love it and wouldn't think about leaving. I have received a paycheck every month for 5 years now.
I got stared by sitting down with someone on our team and going over all of the details. I was able to ask questions, do research of my own and talk to a real person.
Our start up fee is only $29 and that is fully refundable for 120 days. That is for an entire year, not a monthly fee. No risk involved!
I train others over the phone and the computer. I am in contact with all of my new partners every day until they start to feel more comfortable to do some things on their own. We have several live team calls every week. This is a great way to meet others on our team and share our stories.
It has allowed me to quit my job and be home with my kids for almost 5 years now. I wouldn't trade it for the world!

I do Scentsy the wickless, flameless candle! These are safe around children and pets, we have over 80 different scents and a new one comes out every month! We have something for everyone, including men. We have on the go things for your car, locker, gym bag, kids rooms. We have buddies which is our stuffed animal that comes with a scent pack of your choice.
I started this business because I love candles but was the forgetful one who would forget to blow it out before I left, I don't have to worry about this one. I can have my candle fix without burning down my house!
Our start up kit is $99 and it gives you everything you need to get started right away. Its easy to book a party because we all know people who know people, you invite some of your friends or family and have them bring a few with them, and not only will everyone love it, but you will get other people there that could book a party and so forth.
We have a resources tab that has policy and procedures, we have the support of the company directly through our workstations, we also have our upline. There are training calls that you can listen in, and we have a conference every year and this year its in VEGAS!!

Hi all!! I do Passion Parties--Adult Romance and Novelty Products consultant. Have been doing it for 6 years now. I LOVE IT!! I love meeting and interacting with new people. It's fulfilling to know that my products can help bring couples closer or help women feel more confident about their sexuality. Best part is that you can work around your existing schedule to work the biz as a hobby, parttime, or fulltime.

New to circle of Moms- posted yesterday and don't see it now even though I had a notification that someone responded. Any thoughts?
I shared about my Thirty-One business and Rhonda replied, my post and Rhonda's are gone. Weird.
