Hello it's me kathryn5kids now w/6kids. For you who don't remember me I just had a baby April 10th Jessica. Well I've been researching my wahm options and had some questions of the ones who sew. My Jessica is a constant nurser. Which I don't mind because since she at first had latch on problems, she was growing slow and for any mom, that just makes you ancy. So for extra money to help out with all these medical bills rolling in I wanted to start something truely at home. I was trying for something where Jessica could be with me at all times. So I thought about sewing diapers and making home made "spa" products. But before I invest in fabrics, time, and motivation I wanted to get personal opinions out there on the "labor" I really hope you ladies could share your success/not success and why!
How many diapers do wahm typically sew in a day?
How quick do most wahm sew? or how many hours do you work in a typical day?
Is this worth income or more for a fun hobby that pays back the materials you spent? (please mom's answer this, I would hate to spend money on fabrics, to find out this is more a hobby. My husband would kill me and I would never hear the end of it... his "I told you so!"
Would anyone share their insights on how you start buying wholesale?
How long did it took you to see earn income?
personal success and not so success stories?
What's your favorite start-up website to display what you want to sell? (shopping cart features, etc?)
These are just some questions I have. I haven't made a decision yet on weither I'm going to do a wahm sewing, because I researching my labor issues first. I'm also thinking about the other options like Pampered chef, Discovery toys, tupperware, perhaps even Avon. It's not that I don't want to "do" labor. I just want to see how flexible my chosen wahm job is. With 6 kids and my newest a constant nurser, I would hate to take on more than I can and disappoint my customer. When I choose work I dedicate myself to my customers. For example I graduated massage school in 2000. I would go back to massage, however with my constant nurser that would be difficult on her. If you want to make good money the hours vary. And I would be away between 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours depending on how far my client lives. This unstable hours would hurt her. Although I guess I could choose to only schedule a particular time period of massaging, but then again I want to "be" with my new one at all times until she gets a little older. Hmmm more thoughts of more wahm's jobs. Whew before I ramble anymore please mom's help me out with your personal opinions!
I'm no mail right because I'm subscribed to so many groups I get hundreds of mail a day! ha ha! yeah when pregnant I was able to sit up at nights and read away. Now sleep is important with my nurser! ha ha!
But with these personal questions I'm sure it would be better to reply to my personal e-mail anyhow. I would truly appreciate it!
