Linda Stacy of Offers a Place for Work at Home Moms to Share Their Business Opportunities...for FREE

Interview and Article by Alice Seba, Editor of

In November of last year, a unique resource site for work at home moms and work and home moms was born. was created out of the desire to provide chat rooms for independent representatives so that they could present their business opportunities to interested parties. Since then, the site has grown considerably and provides a variety of resources to those who have or are researching starting their own business.

The site includes direct sales company profiles and information, a growing library of home business articles, free downloads including a Woman Owned Business Desktop Reference Guide, an HTML tutorial, a newsletter directory and more.

"Being successful at a home based business requires a strong sense of self, " says Linda Stacy, owner of, "Choosing the right business starts with self-evaluations - knowing your interests, strengths and weaknesses.

To get started and to continue making decisions along the way requires self-confidence and self-trust. You'll need self-motivation, self-reward and the ability to forgive yourself for the mistakes. And you have to be able to see your own success, even when it's not monetary."

When searching for a business opportunity to join, Linda offers the following advice, "Evaluate the product line not only in terms of what you like and use, but in terms of your target market. Will the people you know be interested? Will they be willing to try a totally new product or brand, or might you have more success selling something familiar or that they already use?"

For finding a sponsor, Linda encourages moms to find someone who shares the same goals and someone with whom they are compatible. Most importantly, moms need someone willing and able to mentor them. "I think it's a good idea to interview two or three potential sponsors and to talk to your potential sponsor's immediate upline," says Linda.

"Starting any business is a risk that you have to be willing to take. Doing your research minimizes that risk and one of the best things about joining a direct sales company is that the financial risk is relatively small."

As far as researching the company itself, Linda suggests to "make sure the focus is on selling the product, not on recruiting. While building a downline is worthwhile, unless consultants are selling the product, no one is going to to make money." She also encourages moms to find out as much as possible about the financial status of the company.

Linda plans to expand the resources available at and spends a good deal of time reading and researching what kind of resources people are looking for. She wants to focus on continuing to develop resources that improve communication between independent representatives and potential recruits, along with providing information and networking opportunities for business owners.

"I want people to be able to start a business with accurate information, realistic expectations and a support system in place and then have the resources needed to build that business with confidence and integrity. The opportunities are there; we just need clear vision, " says Linda.


Linda Stacy lives in Massachusetts with her husband, a software engineer, and their 10 year old son. When she's not being a mom or working, she volunteers at her son's school. She enjoy crafts, especially needlework and paper crafts. In addition to running the Work at Home Career Fair, she is an eBay trading assistant.
