How to make money when you are a stay at home Mom

There comes a point in every mom’s parenting journey, that they feel the need for more. More than being a Mom, wife, taxi driver, nurse, and chef. Not that any of those are not important to keep the family functioning. I mean, who will take care of things if there is no Mom?

My children are still small, although they are not babies anymore. That said, I feel like they don’t require my attention around the clock. My first thought was to go back to working full time. However, that would not suit our current situation. I then ventured to the idea of starting my own online something. What that something would be, well I waited for the universe to show me what that will be. That is exactly what happened.

How it started

I am not new to the blogging world and have grown my social media audience for over two years now. I mention that, as the business opportunity was presented to me through social media. Instagram to be exact. This wonderful Mom and I became friends almost instantly. She then realized that I might be just the right person to share this amazing business opportunity with. The timing was absolutely perfect!

After introducing me to the business plan, the products, and how to make money, the choice was simple. I just HAD to get in on the business. It almost sounded too good to be true, but what did I have to lose. Other than a small franchise fee, literally nothing!

Surprise surprise! I started an online business with almost no money. You read that right, I am a stay-at-home mom and working on my own business. Don’t be fooled, it is not easy.

The Business

In a very short, but sweet description, it’s all about helping people live healthier lives. Helping them get all the nutrients they need through whole-food supplements. Added bonus is that the business model is beyond comparison and honestly, I haven’t seen a better support system than this. The network of people, regardless of their financial status, are willing to help wherever they can. Nor have I seen a better commission and reward structure. Having worked in sales before, trust me when I say the financial reward is good.

Goodness of the Product

I will simply say that the products cannot be compared. No really, you cannot compare it to anything else in the market.

The products help you bridge the gap. What do I mean by that? Well, the really simple answer is that Juice Plus+ food supplements help you bridge the gap between what you should eat and what you actually eat. There are over 30 different fruit and vegetables in these whole food capsules. One of the many great things about them is that there are no nasties like growth hormones nor are they synthetic. They are entirely whole food, which means totally safe for children, vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores.

It was perfect timing, gave me the freedom to work around my available hours and best of all I get to earn extra money. It is extremely important to me to be around my children. It is not time to do anything full-time in an office away from my children. However, I wanted to do my own thing and set up a future for my children. This is perfect!
