Default How have you been a WAHM? What do you do?

I thought it would be fun & interesting to see what the group here consists of with some friendly questions. I will ask some questions & answer them myself & if you want to join in just copy and paste the questions and fill in your answers

Do you work in the home or outside of the home?

As of November 5th, I would exclusively at home.

What do you do?

I sell nursery supplies and rare plants.

If you work outside of the home, do you plan on transitioning to working from home?


N/A

Do you enjoy what you do?


Love it!

How long have you been doing it?

1 year

How many children do you have & what are their ages?

I have a 2 YO and a 4 month old.

What would be your dream come true?

My dream come true would be to own one house in the mountains and one house on the beach. To have a sitting room attached to my bedroom that would contain a small forest & a view. To have a 2 vanity master bathroom which includes a fireplace over the hot-tub. My dream would be to let my children attend any school they would like to attend or teach them myself. To have my children be a part of any activity that excites them. To be fortunate to help them attain any dream that they could dream of. I would like to have money to donate & time to volunteer & I would like to go on a 3-4 week vacation with my family every year - Safari anyone? I would like to have time to spend with my grandchildren when we get old, to watch them open presents on Christmas day, to knit them sweaters, socks and blankies & I would like to have time to sit in a hammock and watch the sun set with my husband. Hey, it's a dream! And while we're at it, how about some world peace!

I'll play, then ...

Do you work in the home or outside of the home?

Both, now. (But for years I worked and ran my business only at home). Now I have another part-time career as well, and even for my network marketing business I have to travel to another country for 7 or 8 days every month.

What do you do?

A few things. I have a network marketing business (nutritional one) and am also the company trainer/presenter at meetings/seminars and so on. I run a church hostel for homeless women. And I'm a conductor (not of electricity: of choirs and orchestras, mostly church and university ones but some more formal/professional ones as well, these days). I'm self-employed in everything I do, apart from all my church work which is unpaid anyway. I've never had an "employer" who pays my "salary".

If you work outside of the home, do you plan on transitioning to working from home?

No, I'm transitioning the other way round, apparently, and travelling more and more, too. It wasn't really my intention, but what can you do?

Do you enjoy what you do?


Yes, all of it.

How long have you been doing it?

The MLM since I left high school (8 years). All the rest about 2 - 3 years, and more so now since I sold one MLM business (my main one) a year ago.

How many children do you have & what are their ages?

I have none. I'm not strictly speaking a WAHM at all. I'm here under false pretences. But then again, there are some men here too, and I always figure that if they're welcome here, maybe I am, too.

What would be your dream come true?

I just want to serve and fulfil God's plan for me to the best of my ability, whatever it entails. I shouldn't say "just". That's an ambitious plan.

From Home

What do you do?

I am an Independent Distributor with SoyLicious.com & with Symmetry ~ Diet Magic.

Do you enjoy what you do?


Oh absolutely I do! I believe in my companies 100% and they have become a passion for me.

How long have you been doing it?

I have been a WFHM for almost 4 yrs.

How many children do you have & what are their ages?

I have 1 very spirited 5yr old daughter!

What would be your dream come true?

My dream is to be financially stable so that I dont have to worry as much anymore. I want to be successful enough that my husband doesnt have to work so hard at his job (hes a contractor/construction) and is able to do the things that he enjoys. I want to be able to take my daughter out and not worry about if we will have enough money to do so.
I want to succeed in helping others with their weight struggles, to help them as I have been helped. To have a car that doesnt need constant work done to it and that is paid off.

Default Hi!

Nice to meet you too, Shanina!

I love seeing all of the responses. Maybe this will give people (women & men) who are wondering if this can really be done some hope to see that so many different people are already doing it successfully, happily & in so many different ways.
