Hi Mandy Moo,
I just tried to reply but I dont think it worked....Sorry if you have 2 messages from me!
I found this really great work from home business that costs less than $1000 (there are 4 start up options to choose from ranging in price) to start and offers really great commissions.
The company is in the travel industry so you get access to fantastic travel discounts as well as giving you an extra income.
Have a look at my link and see if it's something that might suit you. www.travel-homebusiness.com
I have found it to be very easy to manage around the children as there really isn't much time involved and all the contact with your prospects is automated and done for you.
Hope this helps you with ideas!
