Just wondering if there were any bees who have a home business or job worth the time and effort you put into it. I want to help out FH with finances next semester (my final semester in school), unfortunately senior projects keep me too busy to work during typical work hours…. work from home anyone?
I’ve had several friends want me to join a team that works for Amway and I’m considering it right now but feel it won’t work for me because of the people I know. No one’s going to buy meds or vitamins or household things from me since most people I know are in school too and not living off-campus. (every need is taken care of, basically)
I was looking into places like Stella and Dot today, thinking I could market something related to fashion or beauty a little better. Does anyone have suggestions/warnings for me as I look for work I can do from home?

I would not do Amway. I did Pampered Chef for a while and loved it, may still get back into it. Do you have any warehouses like HSN or QVC around? I know one bee works at home for them, I wish I could remember which one. Miss Maine maybe?
There are a few threads about work from home bees. I would search for them and see what you can find

I am a Stella & Dot stylist. Stella & Dot is a great company and probably one of the better direct sales companies on the market currently. Their products are on trend and they are growing their product line beyond jewelry. I work full-time and sell Stella & Dot part-time (evenings and weekends). It can be very profitable if you are consistantly holding large volume trunk shows. If not, then the money is not as good and I feel like I have a hard time affording enough jewelry doing it part time since a new line is introduced every six months. I would definitely recommend going to a local stylist meeting or meet & greet and talking with some local stylists. The Stella & Dot website has a list of regional meetings that are available to those interested in becoming a stylist.

I’m *NOT* trying to threadjack at all, but was wondering if you or anyone you know has been a mystery shopper or online survey taker? I have a friend that makes several thousand a year doing surveys (I tried, but didn’t have the dedication and only made $50, lol). I’ve been looking into some Secret/Mystery Shopper opportunities because it seems so much easier. Maybe some other bees have done this or know good companies for it. Just wanted to share the thought. 🙂

A friend told me you can make money writing blurbs for search engines–may be something to look into if you like to write!

I would love to do the mystery shopping thing…I get emails all the time but I don’t want to just send my information to some random stranger…I need to find a legit company!

I did mystery shopping yearrrs ago, I think my Girlfriend introduced me to it, but I forgot the particulars. I did some assignments for Starbucks. You had to pay up front for the drinks, but then they reimbursed you for it in addition to your wage.
