If you have children, looking at a stay at home business cn make a lot of sense. Running a business from home can save alot of money, plus it can generate a nice income…all while raising your kids in a loving environment.

You don’t have to sell anything, you “recommend” other people’s products and when someone buys that product through your recommendation, you make money. Very easy, but it can take a little training to learn the ins and outs of affiliate marketing.
Don’t fret if you think you don’t know enough to start a stay at home business. This is the internet after all! Any thing that you want to learn is right at your fingertips. There are plenty of guides and courses available on almost every business model out there. Just beware that some are scams and don’t really help you learn anything at all. Or they lead you down the wrong path.

If you get stuck or confused along the way, be sure to seek the advice of a trusted coach or mentor. Their help is really invaluable, it saves you from having to re-invent the wheel over and over again.
