How to Find the Best Work From Home Opportunities For Moms



Staying at home is a huge sacrifice that new moms face once they make that decision.  Saying good bye to a paycheck, yet working harder than ever to care for a household and their child or children.  So, you look for ideas for a home business that will truly bring in an income and will justify you not going to a job and putting the kids in daycare. 

The truth is, there are many good work at home opportunities out there just waiting to be taken advantage of.  You need to beware, of course, for the ones that make grandiose promises of financial freedom.  As our moms told us, "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."  This especially is true when researching work from home opportunities.

There are get rich quick schemes all over the net, and it is your responsibility to identify them and disqualify them immediately.  So many people have wasted time and money on these "opportunities", and they get discouraged and never try again.

Good news!  There ARE legitimate work at home opportunities.  It is not easy, and don't let anyone tell you it is.  You may or may not have to spend some money to get started.  Keep the following in mind when researching a company

1. What product are they selling?  Some companies sell a product and want you to be a distributor.  Most of these are MLM or multi-level marketing companies, which is a fantastic business model for getting started in your own business for a low start-up cost. You need to find out what the product is and if the price they are selling it for is reasonable.  Many MLM companies have good products, but can be overpriced because of the numerous levels that have to get paid, so again, do your research.
Because of the business I am in, I know many people who are MLM-ers and do very well, but I also know many who have gotten into the business thinking they were going to be rich quickly, and after a couple weeks, they got discouraged and quit.  As with anything, start out slow and be patient.  Hard work will pay off!
2. How much money does it cost to get started?  Some companies charge a small fee for shipping, others require large sums of money to get started, as in franchise start ups.  Again, you need to do your research before you spend a dime.  It can be very frustrating when a company gets your attention, you get excited, and they ask for money before you know what product the company represents.  Beware of these, as they may be scams.  As a business person, asking for a nominal fee to cover your marketing and/or shipping costs is reasonable.  It also "weeds" out the people who aren't really serious about going into business, "tire kickers", if you will.  However, make sure to get as much free information first.
3. How serious are you?  Honestly...how serious and ambitious are you?  Really think about this question.  Understand that no matter what any company can promise you, the bottom line is you are in control of your success. As humans, we are more afraid of success than we are of failure!  It's easy to fail...just throw your arms up and be done!  But to succeed takes a lot of guts, hardwork and time.  If you look at the people in your life who are successful, they never give up. I guarantee if you ask those people if they have ever failed, they will probably laugh and tell you that they have failed more times than they have succeeded.  Success isn't a sure thing.  Only YOU know if you can commit what you need to for a successful outcome.

Being in business for yourself and having the flexibility to be there for your children when they need you is a dream for anyone.  Or maybe you don't have to work for financial reasons, but you want something to do for yourself.  Starting a home based business is a gratifying and exciting adventure that I think moms should try.  Again, DO YOUR RESEARCH and then GO FOR IT!!!
