Need a Real Job I can do from home?

Is there real jobs I can do from home that are not scams and dont require a start up fee? I really want to work but cant afford daycare. I have 3 kids that will all be school age during the fall so I was planning to work the same hours that they are at school so they dont have to be in daycare. until then I want to work from home. also what job could I do while they are at school? I want to work at the school but with the budget cuts they are not hiring. I am cna so i was thinking of working while they were at school unless i can find a better job.

  • I have a home based business and a part time online job, and both of them were free to start. I'm an independent consultant for DiamondCreek Candles. If you get involved with the school you could probably make a killing with these at PTA functions and stuff. I also work with ChaCha, where I get paid to answer questions (NOT a survey site!!!) that our customers text in to us. Let me know if you want to know more.

  • Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home business? I have a friend who make children's hair accessories in her basement and sells them to boutiques all aver the midwest. I work out of my home doing freelance bookkeeping and business organization; I also do career and job search coaching. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.

  • Home health care wouldn't be bad for you. I use to do that as well as I also worked at nursing homes as well. If you are any good with cleaning you could possibly advertise as a cleaning lady/maid. Put the hours you are available I did this the year before last and posted flyiers in senior apartments I did really well. I am thinking of doing it again once my son goes to school next year. They pay rather well, pretty clean most of them just they couldn't do much reaching or bending down. I did a lot of laundry, dishes, unloading dishwashers, dusting, and vaccuming. I would say 10-20 dollars and hour most of the time you are in and out within two hours and most of them only had me come in once a week. But it was easy.

  • I have been a sahm for 7 years and just recently got the best job EVER. I have a really good friend who has been selling Premier Designs Jewelry for years and had talked to me about it in the past, but I never was really interested. I thought that it wasn't for me. After she showed me her commission checks, I quickly reconsidered and decided to look into it.

    Needless to say it was EXACTLY what I needed! I have been doing it for a few months now and have really enjoyed it and not to mention that last month I made over $2,000 working part-time. I work mainly from home and then try to schedule my jewelry parties one night per week. I don't have to get childcare because I work around my husband's schedule and really the jewelry just sells itself. Plus I get to get out of the house without kids! Imagine that!

    If you would like further info just email me! I would love to share it w/you!

  • Have you ever thought about becoming a Pure Romance consultant? It allows me to be home with the kids and have "me" time as well. I average between $200-$400 for every party I do and I hold about 3-6 parties a week. If you're interested in empowering women about their bodies while making money, please let me know.
