Our series on Work At Home Mom (WAHM) options was like a mini business bootcamp! We learned so much from all our guests on The Mom Complicated Show and are lucky to know so many business savvy moms. The opportunities are endless if you are interested in working from home!
Here are a few that we covered in our series:
Direct Sales is the selling of products directly to the consumer, without a fixed retail location. Some examples of direct sales would be Initials Inc., Thirty-One Gifts, Silpada Jewelry, and Rodan and Fields. These usually include a party that you ask your friends to host during which you make a percentage off the amount of products that are sold.
A blog is an information or discussion website that usually has daily entries that are displayed in chronological order. Most blogs provide commentary on a particular subject and allow readers to interact with the material. There are many ways to monetize your blog to bring in an income.
Graphic Design and Etsy:
