Hello I am a 22 yr old female from Ohio, I am not a mother quite yet but was thinking about working from home. Are there any reliable jobs out there that are not just for stay at home mom's but for people that are interested in the business?

Thank you in advance

Take Care,

That post makes you one of the brightest 22 year olds I know!! You don't have to be a mom to do any of the WAHM jobs! It is so smart to start thinking about working at home before you have to! It's easier to start when you don't have to work around your children's schedules and then, if you do need to be at home, you are already set.

I would love to tell you more about what I do if you are interested. I am a Discovery Toys consultant and I share high quality educational toys! (Yes, there are some VERY successful toy representatives that don't have children yet! I know a quite a few, actually!) Let me know if I can send you an email regarding the opportunity.

Welcome! There are lots of great opportunities in Direct Sales...that is what most of us do...and anyone can do it!

One of my favorite things about Mary Kay is that any woman or man can do it. Whether you are wanting to replace a full time income, or just make an extra $100 a week, the opportunity is amazing.

I started my business before my daughter was born, so that I could be established and be able to stay at home. I am a few months away from making as much, if not more than DH makes :)

The mission of Mary Kay is to Enrich women's lives...there are so many ways we can reach out to women and this has been a great oppty for me. Feel free to check out my website...about the career path and see if it interests you. Feel free to ask any questions!


I hope that you find something that you can love. I love what I do and would not trade it for the world!

Good for you Erica! I have a Consultant on my team who hasn't started a family yet, works full time and does direct sales on the side for extra income and fun! I wish I'd had the presence of mind to start my business years ago! I see that you're in Ohio, that's where my company is based, have you ever heard of HENN?
