We are now a single income family as I just had child 4 & 5 in March this year. I won’t be going back to work anytime soon and was wondering what other mums do to make extra money?

  • I signed up for a party plan business called PartyLite selling candles and decorator homewares. I love it because I can choose my own hours to do demonstrations/parties and they usually are night times or weekends when hubby isn’t working so he can babysit. There are other companies you can choose selling cosmetics, jewellery, clothes, tupperware etc but I chose PartyLite because it didn’t cost anything to start – they had a great start up offer where whatever I sold at my first party ($650 worth of product to friends and family) took that amount off my kit price. Not the profit, they actually matched it dollar for dollar. I like the support of having leaders to ask for advice and support but mostly I love choosing when and where and how often I want to work. I earn 20% of what is sold so its usual to get about $100 for 3-4 hours ‘work’ talking about candles and drinking coffee!
