That's awesome! I'm so happy that someone else realized that you don't have to do what society says to make money. My dog training is similar I usually end up putting more hours into that than I actually say because it's more a part of my life than a job. But my daughter is with me then; she loves the dogs too! ;-)Wow you're gonna be a grandma a lot! Better keep those needles going! haha

Nobody here likes MLM spam and it is against TOS. You are free to talk of the virtues of working at home, it is the advertising link that is the problem. Since many people come by this board and many of them are vulnerable to these kinds of ploys, I have no problem pointing it out.

It is not MLM spam get your information before you speak. Go ahead and go to the better business bureau and ask them if it's spam. And I am perfectly at liberty to put anything I want as my signiture as long as it is not offensive. And putting something that is part of my everyday life is not offensive. And people are not vulnerable, if working at home is what they want to do, what I do is not necessarily for them. They choose what they want to believe. Just like I did, I got scammed many times and spent $1000s doing it. I know a scam, and I know a depressed bitter person too, if you are really concerned about the people here, then maybe you should do a little research before you speak.

It is spam and it is advertising. That is against TOS. I am sorry that is upsetting to you, but that is the way it is.

A couple of random links about Ameriplan:

"Additionally, AmeriPlan is charged with conducting an illegal pyramid promotional scheme because it sold "broker packages" for the purpose of recruiting memberships. Because the memberships were for discounts that did not exist, Morrison alleged there was no actual product being sold. AmeriPlan's largest source of income in Montana was from the sales of these "broker packages," according to the Auditor's charging document."

Actually, this is not a WAH board. There are some on iVillage, if you take a look. Maybe you are in the wrong place.

I know this is not a work at home....well actually it is the post that started this was mostly concerned about income and going back to work to get that income and all I said is that if you want to you can work from home. That started all the attacking. So yes this is not a wah board but I've had to defend myself and my choice; therefore making wah the issue when really i was just trying to give the woman an opinion and hope that you can do what you want if you put in the effort and a little creativity.

I agree, but I think given the amount of time people spend at paid work, it's better if it's something that inspires them.

Why are you blaming "society" for thinking that you had to work outside the home?
