Any suggestions on a job that pays at least 1500k a month but doesn't require me to work 10 hr. days away from my family?

Times are hard, people are losing their jobs daily. Please do no mistake me for an ungrateful moaner. I thank God that I have a job and can provide for my family. I've given up on the dream that my husband is an heir to millions somewhere in Europe where he is from..and I've also stopped stressing him with the notion that HE must get a better job so I can stay home. He's looking into getting into grad school in the next 2 years and finding a job that pays enough for me to stay home. BUT IN THE MEAN TIME.. how do I get out of this job of 10 hr. days with weekend obligations and constant riding from a corporation who don't care about family? I am looking for a PT job that pays enough (1500 a month) that allows me to stay home with my two girls (ages 2 and 1) OR a job that allows me to have them with me and still be home at a decent hr. I currently work as an asst. director at a childcare center with my girls down the hall.

  • Home businesses will over time earn you a great deal more than $1500 a month, but take a decent amount of time to build up an income. And depending on the business you choose most will start you at $0 every month/quarter. If you are interested in a home business make sure you find one that offers residual income. That means you won't have to start from $0 every month.

    If you are looking for a JOB, there are more options than you know. I have a HUGE (and growing) list of home jobs.  If I were you I would also check out your local career link or welfare office, as both usually have a full list of local jobs.

  • I am a work from home mom and I am partnered with a Wellness company that distributes eco-friendly products. My daughter has never gone to daycare because I found a real work from home job. I do not sell. I do receive a check once a month. I do have a website that you could go to if interested......

  • I think that what you are looking for fits more into owning your own business then a Job. You might not make as much money at first as just having a job, but the long term earning potential and the flexibility blows a job out of the water. There are a lot of business to chose from so make sure to do your research and pick something you are comfortable and willing to do. don't pick a business selling or making calls if you will hate it. I looked for a work at home job for a couple years and finally went with a business. I'm glad I did! I love my business! It is called my world plus. There is no selling, no parties or meetings, no orders or inventories, No cold calling, and it cost very, very little to start up! Take a look maybe you will be interested in a business instead of a job. Best of luck in your search! If you have any questions let me know.
