Working With The Finished Product

I have been working for Carla and The Finished Product for over 8 years.  I make an average of a few thousand dollars each year.  As a teacher, it is so great to be able to earn this extra money on my own time from home!  I have used my extra income to pay off bills and take vacations!  Carla gives us due dates for assignments and I get to pace myself in order to get it done on time.  Carla is always so helpful and understanding when assigning work. Working with The Finished Product has opened up so many opportunities in the education field and has furthered my knowledge in the world of standardized testing.

I have been working for The Finished Product since 2015. I love that TFP gives me the flexibility to work on my own schedule. When I decided to stop teaching in the public school system to be a homemaker, TFP made it possible for me to use my hard-earned degree from home while still maximizing my time with my four small children. I love that I can work at my own pace and when my schedule allows. Working for TFP has helped me to contribute to our family's financial needs. Before working for The Finished Product, I had never heard of this work and would never have known the opportunities that exist. It has been a joy to work with TFP. Carla is straightforward, reasonable, down to earth, and professional. The team values the work we do and strives to do it with excellence.

 I am entering into my eighth year working for Carla at The Finished Product.  I cannot say enough positive things about Carla and the way she operates her business.  She is an excellent teacher and communicator, and I have enjoyed working with her over the years.  Before I was introduced to Carla, I did not know all the possible part-time job opportunities that were available to teachers. She efficiently trained me and opened the door to new jobs.  Her training sessions were organized and specifically targeted toward improving my skills.  I am very thankful for these opportunities and the regular work TFP sends my way. I highly recommend the Finished Product if you are looking to gain new skills and make a little extra income."
