Tell us about your business? What do you like about it? What don't you like? How is this year going?

Well. okay! lol

I own my own business, MunchkinMenus and provide custom menu planning for families with picky eaters, or those who just need help getting dinner on the table every night. I also have a cookbook with over 100 easy, delicious, kid-approved recipes.

In addition to that, I'm also a consultant with Kat's Coffees & More. I love it. It's actually the first DS company I've made money with and I haven't had a bad product yet - although I wasn't too crazy about the angel lace cookie coffee. My favorites are the gourmet coffee, death by chocolate cookies, ultimate fudge brownies, and the bell pepper dip mix.

This year is going okay. With a m/c and D&C last week, I didn't really work much (just checked email), but I've resolved to lose weight, take some me time for exercising and silly things like doing my toe nails, putting lotion on the dry spots (you know the things you want to do but never have time) until I can ttc again - just waiting for AF. I think it's actually the first time I've wanted to see AF!

The best to all of you in 2005!

I haven't pushed for more business in either of my companies, so it's been rather slow, but I have been working part-time out of the house so I haven't had much time.

I have joined a great Scrapbooking Company as an Independent Instructor. I started about 6 months ago. Its been so much fun meeting new people and sharing my love for scrapbooking. The Company Name is Leaving Prints. There are instructors all over the country. I live in Charlotte, NC and looking forward to getting it rolling here.

I just joined Justmommies and am looking forward to reading some of the message.


Thanks,

Andrea

I make beautiful handcrafted bead jewelry. However, I have been sick and busy with my pregnancy so I have not had any time to do anything with it recently. I was only just getting started too!

Hi! I am supposed to help host this board and never even check in anymore! I am sorry!

I run my own website, http://www.mysweetdreamsbaby.com selling things for babies and kids like shopping cart covers and superhero capes. I was out of control with orders from October to the beginning of January so I wasn't on here much. Plus, I had bad morning sickness during that time too! Things have slowed down now and I feel better so I will be around a little more maybe.

I haven't been to this site in forever.

My business has been extremely slow since November. I took this time to get a domain, get a template and change my business over to the new site. I haven't done much for SEO and I definitly notice a difference compared to the other site. Locally I am doing some planning for some presentations at MOPS groups on the baby carriers and doula work. I am also getting some info gathered to start promoting the doula stuff again. The market that I go to every Thurs closes in Dec and does not re-open until April so I have felt "on hold" since Dec 9th. I am taking this time to use my money I make on babysitting to buying new products and getting things looking more professional.

Hello! I just joines Justmommie yesterday and have been reading alot. Although I don't have me own business to brag about I have been enjoying reading about everyone elses.
I do want to mention a cute site I came adroos. I was looking for some booties for my 5 month old daughter and found a site called Lisa's Baby Bootie Boutique. It is www.lbbb.net
They were the sweetest things and got to me so fast. I thought she had cute feet before!
Going to read some more of your very helpful website. Hope you get a chance to check out the booties!

I love my job.

Other than giving me the opportunity to network with fabulous Work at Home Moms, owning www.ShowMomtheMoney.com has just been fun!

And, of course, I am a District Manager with a company that sells Botanically Based Skincare and I'm loving that. It's the best feeling to really help someone who has dry skin or sensitive skin to use products that are good for them.

That's life here.

Guess I'm not the only one who has been missing around here.

I am an independent consultant for both Discovery Toys and Tupperware. While I absolutely love the Discovery Toys products and sharing the business opportunity with others, it has not been profitable enough for it to be a solo venture. So, I just recently added Tupperware back into my business profile.

My Tupperware business is taking off quite well. It's almost frustrating that I worked so hard with Discovery Toys with minimal profit, but Tupperware is selling like crazy. I guess I'll chalk it up to the great marketing skills I've developed in the past two years and the fact that there is a better Tupperware market here.

I am very excited about continuing both business through 2005. My children are happy with the excellent toys that they have available to them, I am happy with the new kitchen organization that is developing, and I get to share this pleasure with others.

The bulk of my business is done during the holidays. I'll do craft shows and such. I will be doing a book fair at our local hospital soon, so I am excited about that! I enjoy it and I have newborn books as well as childrens stories. It has been slow due to the fact that I still work part-time outside the home and getting ready for our 2nd child! Wishing everyone the best of luck!

I'm an Independent Consultant with Longaberger and I love it. It sells itself and is very profitable! I've collected it for years to organize my home with the baskets and I love the pottery also. Just started selling two years ago.

My toy business (BabyCrazy) has been very slow since christmas. I haven;t really been trying though.


I just started with a brand new direct sales company called Lavender Love. I look forward to seeing how my new business goes!
