Jan Strieter and her husband, a diesel mechanic for Catepillar, recently settled in upper peninsula of Michigan in a small town called Negaunee. "We love it!" exclaimed Jan, telling me how family goes snowshoeing on picturesque rock bluffs adjoining their property.
"Selling isn't something I was born with," said Jan. "I was a waitress for a long time, which taught me to listen to people. Then I worked for Tupperware and Avon." Like Eakins and Krahns, Jan sells for Buyersonline.com. What does Jan like best about selling part time from home? The extra income, of course. Jan thought a second, then added a good point. "Being around other positive people is so great!"she said. "They are awesome!"
"I put in a backyard deck!"
"I helped pay for my children's braces."
"I pay for a personal trainer!"
"My children are my hobby. My 2-year old sits on my lap while I work at home part time."
"I don't have to hide my phone bill from my husband anymore. I've eliminated it with some simple work!"
These are some of things people tell me they use money for that they earn selling part time from home. Do they "Earn Unbelievable Amounts For Doing Nothing!!" like so many opportunity ads promise? I have met some people doing that, but a lot of folks are happy with just a little extra income a month.
"Get up and get going," recommends Phyllis Eakins.
What could you do with more money in your pocket?
