Any suggestions on a good work from home job?

I work at Mcdonalds right now, Im on leave now, waiting on my baby to arrive. But anyways, I HATE my job there and would really really like to stay home with my baby. My mom stayed home with me and I loved every minute of my childhood, I want the same for my son. So any suggestions?!

  • I do mary kay on the side. It's great because it allows you to achieve as much or as little as you want. You work around your own schedule, and when you desperately need out of the house and to have some much needed gal pal just schedule a party. Two birds with one stone heehee. They believe in god first, family second, and career third. The other great thing about Mary Kay is they still have a retirement plan, health insurance, and many many MANY other benefits. There is a promotion with MK for only a couple more days. If you sign up now, you have a month to put in an order of $600.00 or more, and you get your start up cost back ($100). So basically you don't loose any money from starting up...not that you would loose money anyways because you get way more product then what $100.00 buys! :) look for more info at

  • I worked in fast food (at McDonalds) for about 5 years. Then I started working the the deli at my grocery store... not much better.
    I have a couple ideas for you, but both take a little time. I'm a consultant with DiamondCreek Candles, which is a home based business. It's free to start and there are no quotas or inventory to carry.
    I'm also a ChaCha guide, and I get paid to look up the answers to whatever questions our customers text to us. Let me know if you're interested and I'll tell you more.

  • omg, how many of the above are heartless, conniving vultures taking advantage of an obviously disadvantaged young lady who is bringing to earth an innocent unwitting precious being. I can't help you, other to say I am soooo glad I worked and earned skills that give me potential, before I had my new baby. I could NEVER leave that innocent being with ANY STRANGER. I sure hope you have supportive trustworthy family. I don't. So it's just me and thanks to a wonderful hardworking dad who worships his previous children, my baby and I will be secure so that I am a SAHM and spend my time nurturing, cooking, cleaning, and educating myself on frugality, soon to be homeschooling. Please put your baby first. They have no idea how world YOU are bringing baby into is a jungle.
