When I was looking after my youngest, I was desperate for a way in which I could make some more money. A friend of mine had been working for Jeunesse Global selling their amazing skin and beauty products, and I decided to have a go. Companies like Jeunesse have a very smart business model which sees them sell their goods via reps. These reps are then able to create a team beneath them who can sell for them, and earn them some great money via commission. I would wholeheartedly recommend this type of position as you can do so on your own time, and there are many pathways to making even more cash.
A good friend of mine has been knitting jumpers and small items for many years and thanks to the rise of the internet and websites such as Etsy and eBay, she can now sell her wares and make some great earnings. If you have a particular skill when it comes to making your own products, you can easily sell them straight from home using the internet. This perfectly lends itself to the flexibility and the freedom that a stay at home Mum requires, and you can really make a good living from selling your stuff online.
There are many ways in which you can use what time you have at home, to make some extra money whilst still being able to give your child all of your time that they need, the key is to find something flexible, and most importantly, profitable.
