i would like to work at home but I want to know how to get started


Rebecca - posted on 10/24/2009




I do Mary Kay, which is like Avon. And i also babysit a few kids. I love being able to stay at home with my 2 kids. I had a business before i had our second child and i sold it 3 months after i found out i was pregnant so i wouldn't have to fork out money for a sitter for 2 kids and i was able to find kids easily as i am on a military base and there are tons of kids here:)

Hey Rosemary!
You are in Luck! The decline of employment possibilities strengthens and increases other opportunities! I work a full time job in a steel mill. To increase my income without sacrificing my time with my family, I found a company that believes in family values. I get more bang for my buck and more power for my hours! LoL I joined this company almost 2 yrs. ago and it has given me the opportunity to enrich my life as well as others! We have a great team that helps women(men also) to own their own business and to work from home. They give people, like you and I, the opportunity to get control of our finances and to reach our financial goals, working part time- full time- any time. There are no quotas and the only limit is You. Unlike other companies our profit is from the moment we sell. We do not have to purchase the product first in the hopes that we can sell it. Our independent distributors, after the sale, take the commission and then send the cost of the product to the company. No inventory and they do the rest of the work(pick, pack, label, and ship)! Bingo Bango!!! Really...it is that simple! We earn 50% of every $$$ we sell and that is just the beginning of the possibilities! It's all up to you. Your time. Your desire. Your ambition! Make a little or Make a lot! I Not only is it fun, but I look good doing it! :>)
I would be delighted to tell you more about this Company.You or anyone else can contact me by email ruagemcmaney@yahoo.com Talk to you soon & Blessings to Ya!

Hi Rosemary,
I work from home for a network marketing company that is an international wellness company. I have never met so many people who want to help me succeed! This business does not require that you have parties to attract people. There are so many other resources available. My business is growing quickly and those people I have brought in to work with me are having so much fun. You really just need 5 people who want to grow the business with you. I have 4 very strong business builders now and I am looking for 1 more. This is not for everyone, but it is really fun if it is a good fit. Let me know if you are interested in getting more info. My e-mail address is kknelligan@verizon.net

Hey there Rosemary, I have done a couple of things, delivering pamphlets, newspapers, online advertising, and selling wellness products, I found pamphlet delivering was good, but not when the kids were sick or it was raining, the selling of products wasnt really my thing...and online advertising...well I didn't really know how the internet worked when I decided to do that. I have recently found an opportunity to work with an auction site which is in the process of going global shortly, they give you the tools to work with, there is no website to maintain, support at hand,no handling products, and all I need is a few hours a day and the internet, eveything is taken care of. My job is to find customers to send there.

The first thing I would do would be to write a list of all the things you want from your work from home job, get online and have a look around also look through your local paper. Top tip....RESEARCH! Don't jump into anything without RESEARCHING first.

You will find something suitable eventually, just be patient.

Good luck with your search!

Hi Rosemary,

I work with a health and wellness company who have been in business for over 24 years. Its $29 to get started and we don't sell stock or deliver their products. All we do is set up accounts and answer questions and if they would also like to make money we teach them how to do what we have done. It is pretty simple and we get to save money on things we normally use anyway and their products are also safer and non-toxic so we get better health too.

If you would like the full details, I would be happy to share them with you. Feel free to give me a call at: 608-524-3441 or request info from one of my websites: www.workathomeunited.com/mybiz or www.livetotalwellness.com/mybiz and I will be happy to give you a call at one of your most convenient times so you can see if this would also be a right fit for you.

Good luck in your search!!

Hi, I've had a few work at home jobs. I've done multi-level marketing (think Arbonne, Mary Kay, whatever....TONS of options to pick from there) but it seemed to be more time and money consuming thatn I wanted. Right now I do massage therapy out of my house, I worked in town until my baby was born and then from home. Also I write scripts, which is something I can do from home and just need to get a sitter a few hours a week to go see clients. But mostly form home.
Also you should look into self-employment that may not be from home, but that you can schedule as you wish. I know a lady who made a living feeding peoples animals/watering houseplants/picking up mail/ whatever when they were out of town. She got so busy she was hiring employees, but you could take on as much or little as you wanted and bring your kids with you even. Another friend does housecleaning, on her schedule, as much or little as she wants. She too got busy enough to hire an employee. So for $25/hr housekeeping, two people, the homeowner pays $50, emplyee gets say $10, and YOU've just made $40 an hour!! Defintily worth paying a sitter maybe two days a week or whatnot. Good luck!
