How can I make good money?

I really need to find a way to make some decent money while I stay at home with my baby. My husband and I are having a really hard time now finacially and we just couldn't afford a babysitter to keep her, plus I really don't want to put her in a daycare. So if anyone knows anywhere i can find one, please let me know.

  • you can join a direct sales company or start an at home business such as selling things on eBay, babysitting, running errands for others. I'm with Ambit Energy. I help those in my area save money on their existing electric bill. The average household saves about $150 a year. Plus even customers earn free travel and electricity.

    You can watch 3 videos about Ambit here:

  • What did you do before you had the baby? Is there a job there that you can do from home or bring the baby in with you? Is there a skill that you have that other people need that you can charge money to do? Can you organize closets? Can you do basic bookkeeping? Can you watch someone's child in your home? Can you trade childcare with a friend so you can work outside of your home part time and not have the expense of childcare?
    I work out of my home, doing freelance bookkeeping and career/job hunt coaching.

  • There are no good work from home schemes that will make you "good" money. Work nights opposite your husband out of the home. You will bring in real income and not have to use daycare. Many of my friends have done this not easy but they only had to work 3 long nights a week and made it work.

  • You can try ChaCha. I don't make a ton with it, but at least $100 per month.

  • If looking for a JOB, what are your marketable skills and previous experiences? If you are looking for a BUSINESS, go with your passions, things that interest and motivate you the most. Build a list and use that to begin your search. General rule of thumb: Never pay for a job (businesses, on the other hand, usually involve some expenses).

    The most common work at home JOBS pertain to customer service, administration, sales, tutoring, writing, consulting, healthcare, marketing, and technical support. There are also many legitimate home BUSINESS opportunities in direct sales, affiliate programs, and network/referral marketing.

    Find a rep to contact, check out their websites, ask questions, do your own independent research. Check resources such as for potential scams. I also have several resources for finding legitimate work from home opportunities in my "Working Mom Entrepreneurs" group here on Cafemom.
