Work-from-home anyone??

Hello to all moms! I have a beautiful 6 month old son. I am wondering if anyone has had success doing work-from-home things online? Before I had him I was an office manager so Im very good with computers, typing, etc.. anything admin/clerical.. I do not have a babysitter and Im not sending him to a daycare because of my own reasons. Please share your experiences with me!

  • I am not really sure what you are looking to get into, whether it be a business or job. If you want to start your own business, be prepared and do yoiur homework so yoiu can choose which would work best for you. I have 2 businesses right now which I LOVE!! If you would like more info just send me a PM. I also have a list of sites that you can apply to for work at home positions, all which are legit. Please just keep in mind that most are telecomunications from home and will still require you to have a quiet work area and some will require a fee for background checks and stuff! Feel free to PM me with any questions and i will be more than happy to give you some info

  • I work from home with Ameriplan and it's better than great! I work about 2-4 hours a day from my computer, an hour a day from the phone, and then do my training while I'm cleaning or playing with the kids. Every trip to the store or walk with the kids is a chance to grow my business... But when you love what you do it's not really work is it?

Most of our team is made up of moms just like you, and we hold an average of just 2-4 years for a 6 figure income. What could you do with an extra full time income? And because of the way we get paid, even once you retire, your income will grow - better yet, your kids inherit your business and the income with it, should something ever befall you...

  • I use sites such as cashle and cashcrate to get extra income. Not looking to make a living but an extra 100-200 a month is nice.  Both of these sites are free to join and never ask for money!!!!

  • What are your passions? First identify those. Are you passionate about all natural/organic products that are safe for you and the environment? If you are, then send me a PM and I will give you information about the company I work with.

    I hope you find a job/company that meets your needs and your family's needs.
