I've recently become a single mom again and I'm having a great deal of trouble making ends meet.

Direct sales is a great option. According to the statistics over at www.dsa.org (the direct sales association) over 15 million people were involved in direct sales in the 2007 year. Those numbers go up every year, but 2008 has not yet been posted.

Whatever you do, it will take you away from your kids. If you're online selling products either on Etsy or through a direct sales website, it will take you away from your kids. If you're at home running a bookkeeping service, it will take you away from your kids. If you're answering phones for a call center, it will take you away from your kids. Earning money requires you to invest your time.

Only you can decide where you want to invest your time. You might consider swapping your part time job for a full time job, or you might consider joining a direct sales company. Again, only you can decide.
