We own a photo studio and right now is a very slow time. I have just recently picked up a part time flex time job (mostly weekends) but it seems to work for our family. I know that it's not going to make us rich but it will help a little bit. I work for a really nice lady doing office cleaning. It's not the most glamous sounding but I can start really early on Saturday, be home for breakfast and then the rest of the day and then do the same on Sunday.

Hello, I am a SAHM also and we fear everyday that my husband may get laid-off. I have chosen to work from home to supplement my husband's income. 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 am sorry to hear about your layoff situation. It is a horrible thing to go through in any economy. I see that happening all across the country. It is hard when your income is dependent on another in charge. I wish your family the best and know that there is something out there for you and it will come. I decided years ago to work for myself and now I am in a recession proof business.



In my industry, things are booming!  

Because people in this country NEED affordable health care and that need in increasing, not decreasing!  Companies are cutting benefits and people are getting laid off left and right.  As a result corporations are being very cautious and spending less and less on advertising and promoting.

Ameriplan USA is consumer driven health care that helps BOTH our members and the providers (dentists, doctors, ancillary care), by cutting out the inflated costs of insurance companies and coming up with reduced fees that both the patients and our doctors are happy with!  It's a win-win!
When we as independent reps, help people save money on one of our plans, we earn 30% residual commissions!

When we help others work from home who are looking for an opportunity, we also earn 30% residual commissions!
It is really a very simple business and is growing by leaps and bounds right now.....and we need more reps!
