Exclamation Don't rule out direct sales!

I just want to tell you guys not to rule out direct sales! I have read alot of negative posts on here about home party companies. I personally work for a home party company and it is just wonderful!! I have a very succesful at home business that I love! I will not spam you guys but if anyone is interested pm me.

At Home Work

Well these posts are a little old but I was wondering what became of your searches. I had been conned several times by scams but I did finally find a wonderful at home business that will eventually allow me to stay at home. After trying out the products I was hooked The work is fun and can be done totally at home with your kids by your side.

Working from Home

Hi there,
I have been fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom. I really give those who work and are moms alot of credit because I don't know if I could do it. I used to be a substance abuse therapist before my first child was born. When she was a baby I was able to take her to work every so often. But then it got more difficult. I finally came home one day and said I can't do this anymore. We tried me staying at home. Money was tight but it is do able. You actually save money on car insurance, lunches, gas, business clothes etc. My husband just got off the night shift so now I am able to do my own home business. It is something that I never pictured myself doing but I enjoy it. I had to step outside my comfort zone. I have a degree in teaching as well so I guess that is where I great some of my creativity from.

So my advice is that just sometimes we have to step outside our comfort zone to see if something is right for you.

Hi everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that I have started my own business! I'm really excited about it but I am also realizing it's going to take a while until it gets busy. I am doing pet sitting. And I do it while I'm still working my "out of the home" job. It's a lot of fun and my passion for animals has made it easy and enjoyable. I'm hoping that it'll take off and I can just do pet sitting instead of working outside the home. And the best thing is, my daughter can help me so I don't have to worry about a sitter for her. It's definitely in demand because almost everyone has at least one pet and who likes to leave their pet at the kennel locked up in a cage when they go on vacation. So I go to their houses and take care of their pets for them. Thought you might like to know.....Good luck to everyone out there who is trying an at home job. I've tried other things and never had much luck.
