If you would be interested in online jewelry boutique ownership I would love to tell you about what I do while staying at home with my 13 month old. Sign-up is absolutely free and everything is done from your computer and you have absolutely no inventory to keep up with and do not do home shows. This is a new concept that I honestly think is going to really take off. The jewelry comes from up and coming designers and it is on-trend and so affordable. You are provided with a website (that you customize with your own boutique name), you get to pick your favorites of their lines of jewelry to display in your online store, and each week they send you coupons as an owner and also coupon codes that you can send to your customers. Take a look at my boutique to get an idea of what yours could look like. It can be found at www.crimsoncharm.kitsylane.com Also take a look at the video at the top of this page ( http://crimsoncharm.kitsylane.com/offer) to get the overview of the company. I would love to talk with you about it and would even help you set up your own boutique until you feel comfortable running it yourself. It is the easiest thing I have ever done! Feel free to email me if you are interested @ email@example.com

I love being at home working flexibly with my two toddlers but it can be hard to find the right opportunity because there are SO MANY out there. You just have to trust you're instincts and go for what suits you best. I'll give you details of what I do and you can decide whether this is something you'd like to consider. I work as a counsellor by profession and I desperately wanted to be at home with my kids. Fortunately I was open minded enough to look into my current role because frankly I was VERY skeptical in the beginning! What interested me in the opportunity was the ethos of the company- you only recommend by personal testimony. If you like it you talk about it. It's that simple. As a naturally shy person, this worked well for me because I didn't need to change who I was. Now I wake up every morning excited about the lives I'm going to impact, using my brain and working from home at my pace. Love it!
Here are my details:

Once you've had a look feel free to contact me. Otherwise all the best in your search. I have so much respect for moms trying to have a work life balance and I wish you all the best!

Hi Jessica - I have an awesome opportunity for you where you can make a lot of money, help others and set your own hours - I'm not sure if you're still looking? My good friend introduced me to her company and now I am also an independent distributor for ViSi - I wanted to find a product that I believed in (their products are all-natural) and also that would help others. I'm sure you know lots of people struggling to lose weight and with growing obesity rates this company is doing really great things by helping people to get healthy in a safe, all-natural way. I have heard so many amazing success stories (anyone can call in to listen to them) and I also use the products, and have seen amazing results. The best part is you can try their products first - being able to give people free samples is a great way for everyone to judge for themselves and make their own decision. The product speaks for itself. It's changed my life and so many people's lives around me that I care about dearly. Please check out the website below for more information - and if anyone wants to be a part of this amazing company you can also join or try the products through the website link. If anyone has any questions please contact me through the website. I would be happy to help! Stay healthy everyone.

If you're very shy, sales may not be for you. Then again, my husband has always been PAINFULLY shy, and then we started our business. Well, we started our weight loss challenge and he is so excited about it, I barely recognize him. He enjoys helping others get healthy because he's so concerned about the obesity, heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, etc. that is plaguing our family and friends. So, having lost 29 lbs already, he's a bit of a walking billboard, and for him, selling isn't about selling, it's about his compassion for others and a desire to keep his friends and family healthy. So he went from shy to "forget this - I'm not going to stay fat and quiet! I'm getting healthy, and EVERYONE is going to know about it!" LOL It's technically my business, but he's done at least half of the "selling". We've just been excited to have weight loss partners and a product that works.
Like I said, it's about passion. If you're excited about what you're selling/promoting/doing, then others will get excited with you. And doing something you can get pumped about is way better than doing something you don't really like.
Also, when I was a market gardener, I baked bread and goodies for the farmer's market (depends on your state regulations whether you can cook at home or not for selling). I made SO MUCH BREAD, I had little desire to actually eat any of it. You could also see if someone you know has a certified kitchen you can borrow or rent.
There are lots of possibilities - you just have to really figure out what's going to make you happy! Good luck to you!

Thats the thing, I love to bake and cook, but want to lose wieght, I don't wear make-up. I'm a very shy person, so it's hard for me to do parties, but I really do need the money. But I will do what you said and find something that I love to do.

What do you like to do? Figure out what aspect of your life is something you want to work on, or what your favorite hobby is, or what you most like to shop for, and you can probably find an at-home business that matches your interests. For example, I'm not a big makeup wearer, so Avon or Mary Kay would be a poor fit for me. I love writing, so sometimes I'll write articles to make money online. I also sell products that I personally love/use, so it's easier and more natural for me to share it with others. Takes a bit of soul-searching to figure out what you want to do!

I am a stay at home mom of 7 children and crazy busy. I found that through my being so overwhelmed I was in fear of losing my identity. I need to find something just to call my own. So I decided to start a home biz. I currently have 2. My first biz takes a little longer to "learn as your earn" http://www.cashquickmoms.com is a blogging platform. My second biz, is easy, quick to start, low cost and generates excellent money http://pcbackup.cashquickmoms.com
Just a few options for you.
All the best,

I run a ministry and have four kids ranging from 22-3. I had to find something that was legit which means they send you a form 1099 because they are tracking your business for you. You also get a back office set up on your own website. My family drinks and shares Organo Gold Coffee with others. Check out the video at http://www.ogshow.com then check out my web page at http://www.lbuhl.organogold.com Our coffee is healthy, non dairy, and have many gluten free choices. They are as cheap as coffee you will find anywhere else but healthy.

I would love all the help I can get, but I can't get the website you gave me to look at. I live in Montreal QC Canada. I need something that will help bring in an good income, I know I will not get rich, but I want to be able to buy my own home and live without fear.
