Hi! I was wanting to work from home so I could make income and still be with my kids. I do not have money to send in for kits or anything like that. If you work from home and it is legit, please tell me how you do it. I wouldnt mind assemballing small things or anything like that. I am up for suggestions so I can start. Anybody with some info, please feel free to answer my plea! LOL

I had a good job had just received supervisor promotion, everything was going great until my 4 year old son broke his femur bone and was put in a full body caset called spica cast for 3 months, I had to quit my job to care for him, but it was hard with just my husbands income so I started looking into work from home opportunities. I found what I was looking for and could not be any happier for now I am home with my son and making income at the same time, I have also made many new friends!!

Ashley, if you want to work from home, do so selling your own marketable skills to an employer rather than be used to market products to other people. A lot of home-working opportunities are only based on how successfully you can persuade other people to part with their own money for goods or services they could probably live without.

Look for a homeworking opportunity where you do NOT have to pay any start-up fees and you do NOT have to persuade other people to buy stuff.

I personally HATE pushy sales people. Most of these jobs are about selling.

Hi Ashley!
If you are serious about working from home let me know. I first ask that you have a idea of what you will and will not do. I also want to share with you the difference between a work at home JOB and a work from home business. Now most people want to work from home(it's ideal) However finding a company is perrty intresting and when you have found a company, It's true you get to pick your work schedule which is usally a three to four hour block.(now if you can keep your kids quite for that long give some of us other moms some pointer LoL) These companies don't want the peple calling in to know that you are in fact working from home. No to metion ONLY getting paid $7-$8 an hour.

Now let me share with you a home based business and what it consists of. A home business gives YOU the FREEDOM to set your own schedule. People know that we are working from home as they are trying to do the same(ofcourse) So your not sticking your kids in daycare or in a room some where to try to keep them quite(AS if that would ever happen). You also don't need any special degrees etc, It's not corporate America there's no one standing over your shoulder and telling you your ONLY worth this amont an hour. Anyone from any alk of life can be successful as long as they are deligete and consitent.If you can see yourself being commited to 2- 4yrs while building financial freedom for your family, And not wanting to have some one else around for your kids firsts(walk,crawl,teeth,crissis etc..) And educating others that they don't have to work for someone else for 40 hours a week for 40yrs Of their life without the garuntee of being able to retire. THERE IS A BETTER WAY.

Let me know if your intrested!

I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you all about my career as an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay. I am now a work-at-home Mom and my own boss, working at growing my own business. Mary Kay provides training, product knowledge & an awesome support base so I have help when I need it most!

Have you tried Mary Kay products? And, do you have a beauty consultant???? If not, then let's get together--soon!

You may like hearing these facts also--in the great depression,tobacco, alcohol, and cosmetics survived.

Today Mary Kay is doing quite well--recruiting is at an all time high. Women are tired of working 60-80 hours. So they are starting their own home based businesses, setting their own hours, and working around family. As far as sales go, women will not give up their cosmetics because cosmetics make them feel good. And, when they look good, they feel great!

RIGHT NOW there are 1.8 MILLION women working for themselves, successfully selling Mary Kay.
In this time of recession our lipstick sales are up 40%. That's right, UP 40%! And Mary Kay is a secure company they have ZERO DEBT.

I was a little skeptical at first. I would never sell a product that i wouldn't use myself. I'm amazed at how well the products [skin care & make up] I'm trying are working. I want to share this amazing opportunity with as many professional women as I can. So that together we can change lives, one face at a time.

For more information please check out my website: http:/ or e-mail Phone calls are always welcome at 734.353.9225. I would love to hear from you.

Metro Detroit MOMS:
You work hard all day and sometimes all night too.
You deserve to be pampered; you certainly do.
And get treated like a model just for being YOU!

You are cordially invited to indulge yourself
and join me Tuesdays at 6:30pm*
for a complimentary facial.

Please R.S.V.P. to myself, Kate Ross
At 734.353.9225 as space is limited.

I’m looking forward to seeing you at our Mary Kay Studio located at 33150 Schoolcraft Road [on the West side between Merriman & Farmington] in Livonia, MI.

Working from home is so smart and such a great investment in the future - you can have the best of both worlds - be at home and earning another income stream for your family - even Donald Trump is getting into a new business using home business direct selling to market the product!

Our company is 20 yrs old - designed to empower parents to be together raising their kids if that is their desire. Whether you need hundreds of dollars a month or need to replace an income - the success is in your hands not the hands of others. We work by team using the phone and market a product that is consumable wellness. If you're interested in learning how I put a warm home-cooked dinner on the table and earn income at the same time just connecting people to information to lift them up and help them get what they need - contact me privately at - good luck Ashley! God bless you for prioritizing your beautiful kids - Lynn

Hi Ashley,

Being able to stay home with your kids is a wonderful thing! I have been a stay at home mom for the past 5 years and had my own home based business with Usborne Books for almost 4 years. I have loved being able to provide these books for my children for free. I have also helped other families, schools, libraries, charities, and businesses. Spreading literacy is a powerful thing!

If you would like to know more, please call or email anytime:


Good luck with your search!

Hi Ashley. I joined a company where I set my own hours and don't have to sell any one particular product. The financial return reflects my efforts, and so far my efforts have been slow and steady. I'm making a couple hundred dollars a month, but intend to earn at least 1,000 within the next few months. Many of my friends who joined earlier are already making a grand a month. Anyway, you can check out the company - shoptoearn - at 70% of this company's earnings get returned to its members. You can email me if you have any questions. My baby's due the end of June!!! So, email before then!

Hi Ashley,
So glad that you are committing to staying home. The hardest job you will ever love!!
I work from home with 4 children all under the age of 10. There is a ton of great advice from a lot of these replies, but I was like you - not a lot of money, but knew I wanted to contribute to the household. Here is what I realized, the only thing residual in our lives is our bills- telephone, internet, cell phone, tv - why not get paid on those services that we use everyday and pay for EVERY MONTH. That made sense. Now we are 17 years old, in 20 countries, just appeared on primetime tv and have cutting edge technology that will be in every household. Take 8 minutes in between caring for your family and see for yourself. It may not be for you but at least you looked. Best wishes for you and your family.

Hi there,

I truly believe that I have the perfect work at home business opportunity for each & every mom out there looking for something to do in some spare time from home.
I’ve tried and tested tens to hundreds of different home based business opportunities.

Believe me when I say that. I started out many years ago and have now definitely found a few that work. Of course I cant work with all of them at once, so I’ve selected my favourite two and am working closely with them.

I have reviewed the top 10 or so companies that are offering legit work at home opportunities or businesses and have put together a web page with links to each of them so you can have a browse at them and choose one for yourself.

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. And as we all know, many of those are schemes, they are not legitimate businesses. If you are looking for something that is purely YOUR business where you can work at your own pace, your own hours, etc, then you should really consider one of my reviewed businesses. It’s all about you! You are an agent for companies. Placing adverts for them and typing for them etc. No, you don't need to be a computer whiz or know everything about technical design to become one. There are many, many options and free websites available to you. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.

I have never liked the ones where you have to sell stuff, or do conference calls, or in an indirect manner try to sell something or push something onto another person. That is JUST NOT ME!!! I’ve tried many forms of Network Marketing (health products/investment products to name a few) and just couldn’t find the dedication to go through with the conference calls, classes, conferences, trainings, seminars, loads of driving, buying of this and that (dvd/leaflet/mail marketing material) etc etc etc. I’m sure you have tried some or other sort that this is ringing some big bells for you.
I’ve spent & lost thousands of Pounds already on these types of business. OK, so they do work for some, but not me and maybe they didn’t work for you either.

What I have found now (the top 10 in my review web page) are ones that you need to be able to type, have a computer or access to one, read (and learn from what you are reading) and some spare time. Naturally if you have more time at the start to help you set yourself up that would be good. But not essential, as we will all get there, just at different paces.

Ok, so if you have any questions, don’t ask me – lol. No, really, feel free to ask about any of my experiences while trying these companies out, but as I am not an agent of any of these businesses I am not involved in the mechanics of any one of them. I have just tried them and put together the report/site. Here’s the link you’ll need:

Good luck with whatever it is you decide to go with and I hope you find something out there that works for you (as you seem to have more than enough replies here to spend a good amount of time looking!)

I love working for a Fortune 500 international Wellness Company and making a significant residual income without selling products or delivering products. We are recession proof, family oriented, and an absolutely amazing opportunity! It has truly changed my life and the lives of many others so much so that it is backed by the EPA, has won numerous awards including from the Salvation Army and the Better Business Bureau, and has been featured in Inc. 500. You can try it out and see if you like the company for free. Contact me at or email me direct at with your contact information, and I will get back to you.

I work with an international wellness company and I do two things for them

#1 – we open accounts for people to shop as

wholesale shoppers with our company - the company manufactures many

household products that all of us buy at the grocery store but with

safe/healthy ingredients. GO GREEN!

#2- The other thing I do is develop a marketing team – I

train other marketing executives to work with me.

We will deliver to your front door and you will SAVE money!!!

Become a virtual assistant. You could offer to check people's email and do other admin. Stuff. I am hoping to employ someone to do this for me soon.

Nicole - posted on 05/20/2009




Ashley, I read your post and I have been where you are right now...10 years later I have learned a lot and I just want to tell you that the assembling things at home thing is very difficult with kids...basically, you get these teeny tiny parts and try to put them together and they have to be exactly as the company says and you don't get paid if you don't get it right, etc. That was my experience anyway! There are legitimate ways to earn money from home, but you have to actually WORK for it...the idea is to go with a company that has a great product(s) and a great compensation plan that you can build your own business around. In my experience, these factors as well as the people behind the company and on your team are extremely important...if you want to own your own company and work for yourself at home, you will need to make some sort of investment. I don't know where society got the idea that a start up fee was a scam...if you owned a company that utilized people working out of their homes to sell your product, would you just give anyone and everyone a free kit to get started? If they invest money into a start up kit, you know that they are serious and you didn't just waste your resources by giving them a start up kit...seriously, think about it! The opportunity to make a great living is out there, but most people fail because they are not disciplined enough to succeed and then they bad-mouth the opportunity. If you really want to work from home with the ability to be your own boss and build a business you can be proud of, contact me and I would love to help you. I have done it all and with 4 kids, I know how hard it is to be away from them working at a "regular" job with your kids in doesn't have to be that way!!
You will probably get a ton of responses and I hope you find one that works for you...please feel free to call me if you want to talk. 765-278-7600
God Bless,
Niki Ginder

Being a mom is so wonderful but being a stay at home mom is a true blessing. I am a stay at home mom of 2 little girls one is almost 5 and the other is 19 months. I recently started working from home. With the economy the way it is I had been searching for a way to bring in extra income other then my husband’s income alone but I did not want to have to take on a job outside of the home and leave my children for someone else to raise. So I decided to look for a legit work at home Opportunity. I will be honest it’s very hard to find something out there on the internet to do from home. For one when you search for work at home Opportunities not all of them are real or legit or even guarantee income. After searching and searching I came across a wonderful company and a phenomenal team of people that have been working at home for 16 plus years. This team has a great way of giving you all the tools at your finger tips to become a successful work from home mom. They are with you step by step until you feel free to go on your own.

This isn’t a get rich quick scheme there are NO hidden fees and there is NO selling, NO taking orders, NO inventory, NO distributing, No parties, and NO MLM! And I love what I do because I get to educate and help other people work toward their goals and also help them live healthier and better lives. So if you want a true work at home Opportunity that works I would love to talk with you and get to know a little bit about you in an interview over the phone to see if this is a fit for you. So if you are interested please fill out the info on my website and I will give you a call to give you all the info you need before you make an important decision about working at home.

Please visit:

or give me a call or email

Hi Ashely!

Yes I understand with everything else how hard it is looking for legit work at home. I have been a stay at home mom for about 7 yrs and I too started out looking for a work at home job. I found several differnt site some that wanted you to pay for their job boards, And some I did just that. Only to find out I would be making 7 to 8 dollars an hour (on top of trying to keep a 3 yr old and 4yr old quite for 3 to 4 hours) Of course these companies don't want the people calling to know that you are infact at home.

So I then started to take a different approach, I started looking into work at home business. I too not a sell person at all. Found tons of information and business out there. What I did in decideing was to make a list of thing I would do and a list of things that I would never do. That's when I found this great company. It has truly been a God sent. Now if you are serious about working from home I would get my list statred. And go for it Also listen to this call this business has truly changed or family( and still changing) I would like you to give me a honest opion of what you think even if you think this is not for you. 1-800-514-1258

Thanks in advance,

P.S hope you find what you are looking for
