WAHMS (Work at home Moms)

{pp}As a stay at home mom it would be good to be able to generate some extra income after the kids have gone to school and the chores are finished. Everyday thousands of moms trawl the internet looking for that work that they can do from home to help make some extra income for the family. You may also want to earn an extra income, your own money (especially the way things are in South Africa). Moms need cash too. Whether you are available full time or part time, there are alternatives – working from home is preferable to going out to get a job or to carry on working outside the home! You can work from home AND stay at home with the kids!

Some people might suggest selling on eBay/Bidorbuy as a good business for stay at home moms, but this is not always the case as finding what to sell on eBay/Bidorbuy can be tasking for a mom who has toddlers to look after.

However, as a word of caution you must be aware that whatever you decide to do will require that you give it some time to work it and be successful at it. Many give up because they were not patient enough to finish what they started. When you work at home you can set your own hours, you can be there when your children need you most and you can find time to socialize during work and pay the bills. WAHM – Work At Home Moms – are moms looking for a second income, sometimes this is in the line of direct sales.

One of the most popular avenues worldwide is to become an Avon Representative. Some of the reasons this option is so popular are:

  • You are your own boss
  • You can earn extra cash - in your own time
  • You can work from home
  • It is a worldwide company with a good name and quality products at affordable prices
