    Default Work from home opportunities

    Hi everyone, I'm due in Nov with my first baby and would like to try working from home as I hate not working! Looking for something flexible with no start-up fees, anyone know of anything?
    Thanks :-)

    I now do followup phone calls for a roof restoration company. I only have to make 20 calls a day and get paid for each call that eventually converts into a sale.

    Doesnt work for everyone but I've been told I can sell ice to eskimos so I am loving it

    I sell makeup via online parties. Just like a Tupperware party, but via Facebook groups that I set up for each hostess. So, we have games, photos, questions, tutorials and the odd giveaway, and just like a usual party that is in home, the hostess earns rewards.
    There is a small start up fee, but I earned mine back in two weeks so no dramas at all.

    Hi I'm an independent scentsy consultant. We sell electric fragrance wax warmers that melt the scented wax melts with a warming plate rather than a live flame, making it much safer around your little ones and pets.
    We cater for stay at home mums as you can do in home parties, online parties, catalogue parties and basket parties.

    There is a small fee to start up but I made that back in my first month.

    Suncorp and some of the other call centres hire staff who work from home in insurance sales and claims. You have to go in full time for on the job training though to start

    For the majority of people, the "work from home" option just doesn't appear out of nowhere. Sometimes you can be lucky to have an employer that allows you to work from home, but it's the exception rather than the rule.

    I know of lots of innovative Mums who do a variety of different things - there's the party plan selling (as mentioned above), then things like becoming a personal trainer, bookkeeping, sports/dance coaching, tutoring, cleaning, pet sitting etc that all require some training and/or work to get set up. I also know of a few creative Mums who sew/do craft and sell at markets/online and those who are ebay sellers.

    As well as looking for online work, think outside the square at skills you already have and perhaps think of ways to use them to work for yourself. Most of those successfully working from home haven't had it magically dropped in their lap. It will take some legwork.

    Good luck.
