Everyone has been a great help with work from home opportunities. I want to thank everyone. I do however, do not have alot of or barely any money to invest in work from home jobs. Is there an alternative?

Hi Maria

That is exactly what I decided when I started looking for something - too expensive or at least too much to risk without really knowing what you would earn.

So, I have something pretty cool that I am doing. If you are interested (anyone) reply and I'll send you the presentation.

Kind regards

We are partnered with a Health & Wellness company in the U.S. that manufactures safer, healthier products for our families. You get to set your own hours around your family's schedule.

Spaces are filling rapidly but I still have some openings this week! Message me ASAP with a time that you are available and we'll get you set up. Serious inquiries only!

Cautious not to appear like I am spamming or selling something because really I am not. As a Mum of 4, I have spent the last 8 years experimenting with different ways to make money from home...I am yet to find the "opportunity of a lifetime" as so many ads suggest....I just find them hard to believe...for me the things that work are a combination of online blogging, eBook writing, options trading, offering freelance services, reference checking and carrying out research from home. No magic solution but hard work and experimentation and I am still learning. Check out website worklifeafterkids for more info.

My husband was recently laid off. I already have a Mary Kay business but I am finding in my area people just don't have the money for those type of products right now. I wanted something people needed, wanted, and could afford. I found Watkins. They have natural and organice products ..ranging from gourmet food (organinc coffees and such), to personal care, apothecary, and all NATURAL house cleaning products(which is HUGE right ) The start up cost me $39.95 plus tax and I love that there is no inventory or monthly quotas!

I understand how hard it is to sort through the many work from home opportunities out there! I spend nearly 2 years searching for the right opportunity and finally found it with Ameriplan!

Now I work an average of 10-15 hours a week and get to work when I want. I love waking up in the morning and knowing I get to work when I have the time and not when the company wants me to work. I choose only to work when my son is napping or sleeping at night... it's amazing!

Plus we receive daily & monthly pay, free benefits for our entire household, one-on-one support and training, and much more! I absolutely love this company!

I have 3 small children and researched long and hard for a work at home job. I really wanted to contribute to my family and keep my kids with me during the day. So I did lots of research and I found a great career! I recently have come across a home-based business opportunity with no large investment, no inventory and no risk. It is an Inc. 500 manufacturing company. I work from home with a company that manufactures products that we're already buying elsewhere, but they are better, safer & healthier. We just help set up customer accounts and the company pays us to do so. It has benefited our family so much! I never have to leave my house to be successful! If you would like some more information, please feel free to ask me about how I made it happen for my family! I would love to share the information about our company! I think if you hear all the details about working for this company it will make so much sense to you. 

If you would like some additional info. please go to my website at : 


You can view the link that says view more and then if you would like me to contact you, please click the link that says Get More Info. Now! and leave some basic information and I will get back to you!

I love what I do!!!  I make really great income for my time and have complete flexibilty.  I also get to help other women feel good about themselves and change their financial situations.  My company's values are to put God 1st, Family 2nd, and Career 3rd. 


I never thought I would enjoy being a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, especially since I had a college degree, no sales experience, and no cosmetic experience.  When I started with MK my husband was in Dental School, I had a 4 month old baby, and worked in research 50-60 hours a week.  Once I had my second son I decided to take them out of daycare, quit my job and become a SAHM/ Work from Home Mom.  I had no problem replacing my income and even earned a FREE CAR! 


I am expecting my third baby boy any day now.  My other two boys are age 3.5 and 2.  Mary Kay is great because even when I am at home with my new baby the reorders will continue to come in and so will my commission checks.


Please check out my website or call me anytime: www.marykay.com/kellyfallert


If you already have a MK Consultant give her a call and she would also be glad to talk with you.


Best Regards,

Hi Maria... My situation isn't much different.  I work 2 part time jobs and my husband just got laid off, so I needed some extra income.  I signed up to sell Scentsy and I am loving the residual income.  People come to me to get refills of what they WANT and I don't have to SELL them anything!  Check it out:  http://www.scentsy.com/amybetterton  Let me know if you have any questions!  I'd be happy to help!

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.  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 ($39) to continue your membership.  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 being a member of there site isn't mandatory in the long term anyway, you could use their site for 3-4 months, learn the basics, then cancel your membership with them. You're not locked into anything, and by then you would have already started your marketing work anyway.

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


Hopefully this information helps you or at the very least, gave you another idea to look into.  I'm a stay at home too, and love the time I'm able to spend with my son.  I usually work on my marketing when he's asleep...that's the joy of this, you can work on it when YOU have the time, you're not on anyone's clock. 

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

I know it is hard to decipher the real genuine opportunities from the hundreds of scams out there. Trust me I have tried many! I have been married for 11 years now my husband and I are in our early 30's and we have three girls..ages 10, 7, and 4. Not to long ago, we came across an opportunity of a lifetime and are so thankful that we enjoy helping others learn about it too. For us this is going to be a financially stability which is very important especially with today's economy. This opportunity comes from a company that has been around for 50years, is debt free, and sold over $2 billion worth of products last year. It believes word of mouth is the best form of advertising. There is minimal investment needed at all. If you can talk to people, you can do this. I will gladly give you all the details so you have a better understanding..no strings attached. Just email me at hunterjaylyn@yahoo.com and let me give you the chance to see this wonderful opportunity of a lifetime!

Hi, my name is Heather and I am a mother of two (7 and 3). I sell Avon and Tupperware from home and I have had great success with both. **********************************If start-up money is an issue, Avon is a better choice - it's only $10 to start! Tupperware is more money and quicker but $79 to start. If you want more information, you can e-mail me at hdrayton07@optonline or visit either of my websites.



Hope this helped!

Good Luck.

Do any of these companies guarantee $4100 in your first month by selling 10 websites to show people how to earn cash back on products we need everyday. This company had 1,500 reps as of last Febuary and now they have 94,000 reps. This business just makes sense. You can join for only $99. Watch the presentation at www.24hourtour.net/csl

Hi Maria!

I have been working outside the home and paying awful amounts to day care until about 4 months ago. I have found a wonderful company to work with that allows me to now stay home with my children which saves me a ton of money while allowing me the potential to earn unlimited income. I love this opportunity so much that I wanted to share it will all of you because I barely had to come up with any money at all and I have already earn back way more than I had to put in to start.

We are a fun team who earn income without sacrificing any time with our children! We can work part time or full time depending on our financial needs and schedules. Unlike most work from home jobs, we do not sell products or keep any inventory! Contact me or visit my website and request more information!!

There are a lot of companies that are looking for people to do customer service from home. I personally am starting work with www.west.com. If you have computer skills, you can do this job. Nothing to invest except having a second phone line dedicated to work. I have phone service with my cable company and all it costs is $10 a month. Way less than how much it would cost in gas and daycare....check it out.

Hey Maria, I was in the same boat as you. I saw alot of work at home ideas, but I couldn't put the money out. My solution was government daycare. My home was already childproofed. I had a bunch of toys, and I love kids. Any equiptment I don't have that I need. My home worker brings to me at her monthly visit. And since you are using your own home. Basically all your bills are atleast partially a write-off on income tax, because they are business expences. I do have alot of rules to follow, some are common sense, some I think are useless, but overall the benifits outway the bad. I'm actually now making more than I was making working 40+ hrs a week in a factory. It's a slow start it took me two years to get where I am now, but it's well worth the effort. Good luck
