  • My usual replies:

    How much do you need to make if I may ask?

    You can do companion care for the elderly, and most of those jobs pay $8-$12 an hour and you don't have to have any skills. You just go sit with the elderly who are living on their own and you run errands for or with them, do some minor housekeeping, stuff like that.

    Home daycare. You can easily get licensed, requires no major skills other than a basic knowledge of how to care for a child, and you can make good money and get tax write offs too.

    If you want info on either of those, PM me.

  • I'm working from home, part time, and I'm clearing $500/wk. It's simple work, no sales, no investment. You can read about it at http://www.freewebs.com/free2workathome/. No previous skills needed.

  • OP - maybe you earn some money being ungrateful when people try to help with answers?

    If you have no skills, school is the best place to get them.

    The words that you're looking for are "Thank you for your advice to all the nice mommas!"
