I often get the question, "Do you know anyone who is hiring?"  I may or may not have a connection for them, but I also encourage them to consider entrepreneurship.   As a life-long resident of Whidbey Island, I've met a lot of people who have made friends and income operating a business from home.  Home businesses range from Independent Consultants for a direct sales company, to creating your own products to sell, and a service or skill type business.    It's an option for someone who has a passion about a particular type of product.

This month, Whidbey Island Macaroni Kid is featuring a number of "Independent Consultant" opportunities, from a variety of companies.  In the future, we will feature guides to other home businesses, so that our readers can be introduced to those in our community who make a product or who own a service-oriented business. 

Each of the moms featured in the "Work-at-Home" guide are excited to introduce you to their company, and tell you a little more about the products they are passionate about.  For shopping, or if one peaks your interest as a potential business opportunity, we've provided the contact information.  This feature will be up for a month, so feel free to take a look at it now, and again later in the coming weeks.  We want you to "meet", all of the fabulous moms in our "Work-at-Home" guide.  By the way, if you have a direct-sales business not represented here, please contact me and we'll talk about featuring you as well.
