Approximately a year ago, [Lisa] Burnham decided to become a TupperwareÂ® consultant so she could help raise money through fundraisers for her Mothers of Preschoolers group and to help contribute to the family finances. She chose TupperwareÂ® because the company â€œstands behind their products with a lifetime warrantyâ€ and she loves the products. She manages her time between being a mother and running a home based business by working around her childrenâ€™s schedules and getting her oldest child involved by letting her sort the orders. She offers this advice to a stay at home mother who would like to start her own business, â€œmake sure you love what you sellâ€ and â€œdo something that lets you give your family the time they needâ€.
[Shannon] Windsor has been an Usborne Books & More independent educational consultant since May of this year. Her appeal to Usborne Books & More was that she can work with schools and daycares in order to promote reading. Like Burnham, she manages her time between being a mother and running a home based business by working around her childrenâ€™s schedules. She also has a calendar with her appointments on it and she checks her e-mail daily. She advises that before starting a home based business, do a lot of research on the time and money involved and make sure that the company sells products that interest you.
There are many companies that a stay at home mother can start a home based business through, but the key is to make sure that starting one is the right choice for her and her family.
