Approximately a year ago, [Lisa] Burnham decided to become a Tupperware® 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 Tupperware® because the company “stands behind their products with a lifetime warranty” and she loves the products. She manages her time between being a mother and running a home based business by working around her children’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, “make sure you love what you sell” and “do something that lets you give your family the time they need”.
[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 children’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.
