I'm a single mother of a toddler with a full time job and its just not cutting it. BUT I don't want to go out and get another job that'll keep me away from home even more than I am now. I've always wanted to start my own business online but I don't know where to go! So many ideas and even more unrealistic ideas. AH! Is there anyone out there to help me with this?”

  • Have you found a work from home opportunity yet? I agree with what a lot of the ladies stated. There's a difference in a job and a business and you should definitely do something that interests you. I for one love to help people and have 2 businesses that allow me to do that. AmeriPlan and Limitless Pleasure Passion Parties. You can check out my website for AmeriPlan at www.mycareerpays.com and my Passion Parties website at www.limitlesspleasure.com . If you have any questions or need help feel free to ask.

  • Think, what would cut it? What money would really make your life better? And what situation would help you get there? There may be things you don't like to do and won't do and there may be ways that you will do. Some people are adamantly against selling, but that's how we all make money, someone sells something. Some people hate cold calling. Some hate inventory or parties. I've actually experienced all the above and found a solution without selling, inventory, parties, no calling and best of all, my schedule so I can be with my baby Lucas. And make a professional income. This is a business opportunity, so be clear that it makes sense for you to make $1000s per month. If you just want to pay the bills, then maybe something else would be better suited. www.websimplemoney.com

  • In your message you stated that you always wanted to start your own business. The beauty with choosing an at home business versus an at home job is that with an at home business you have more flexibility and you call the shots. Before I started my home business which was very recently, I took an online course that taught me everything I needed to know about starting a home internet marketing business. The course was very clear and concise with over 40 instructional videos and it even came with 15 websites for me personally to use whenever I wanted. It teaches lifelong skills in the world of internet marketing. This may be of some interests to you:

  • Here are my suggestions on finding a legitimate opportunity that's right for YOU:

    - Set your financial goals -- Are you just looking for extra income or a potential full-time income? How long (and hard) are you willing to work to meet your goal?

    - Determine if you are looking for a JOB or a BUSINESS -- there is a distinct difference between the two and you want to focus your energies appropriately for the best results.

    - If looking for a JOB, what are your marketable skills and previous experiences? If you are looking for a BUSINESS, go with your passions, things that interest and motivate you the most. Build a list and use that to begin your search. General rule of thumb: Never pay for a job (businesses, on the other hand, usually involve some expenses).

    - Review your budget -- know ahead of time what you are willing and able to invest into your business, including start-up costs and ongoing maintenance and promotion.

    - Find a rep to contact, check out their websites, ask questions, do your own independent research. Check resources such as www.bbb.org, www.scam.com, and www.ripoffreport.com for potential scams.

  • Here is a practical idea that requires no money down. Organize your house, gather all your junk and put it on sale on www.ebay.com. It costs $.15 to list an item on ebay. Sell your junk, sell your neighbors junk. Everyone got something they would love to get rid of for money. Depending on what you got, you can start making $100-$500 dollars extra a week. If you'd like more information, contact I will gladly help.
