@ Home Salon

Here is one that I'm currently working on. I'm a Licensed Student Cosmetologist and aspiring to work in my own @ Home Salon. I have been told by my teachers it will take some time to gather up clients but I'm convinced that working with a company such as Arbonne will help me connect with more clients faster.

I don't know all the specifics of having a home salon as of yet but I did find a website that teaches you how to go about it if you are already a cosmetologist.

My other thought was that working at home as a cosmetologist doesn't have to be a salon right away. I have no problem with being a cosmetologist who promotes healthy companies such as Arbonne.

Some of you that have done some MLM understand the benefit! Not only will I build clientele faster but I will also be building a nice retirement.

I have seen many people take advantage of body wraps for their salon business too. Have you heard of "It Works!" ? well these are more like supplements to a salon income but you get the idea.

You can contact someone at the SBA to get more information about starting a salon at home, your state or read up on it like I do online. I found and variious articles on places like eHow,ezineartilces etc... that give you the basics.

Once I know more and I take that class, you better be sure that I'm going to come share what I have learned with you!

To Your Success!

Public Notary @ Home

A Public Notary is someone who has been appointed and approved by their state government to witness signing of documents and taking of oaths to reduce any chances of fraud.

Notaries are trained for their duties and must meet certain qualifications to be appointed. In most states you must not have a criminal record, legally be a resident of the United States, take an exam and pay a fee.

 It is against Federal Law to require a person to be a US Citizen to perform these duties.

You can perform these duties after being appointed and been sworn in from your home or even travel to provide your service(mobile notary)! You can also be hired by someone but our focus is working @ home with our own hours.

There is no required training courses in many states such as Maine. Maine citizens may go to the states website and download the training guide, application and exam, pay the fee and wait for approval!

States like California who do have training requirements will direct you to where you can get your training and steps to becoming qualified and then appointed.
