What kind of job would you put be in?

Any ideas on what kind of a job to look for I don't like working around people been there and done that, I'd perfer to work alone and have maybe just alittle of people contact. I have no skills I feel worthless sometimes. I am a sahm, but this is getting old same day in same day out. I guess I am just bored. Any suggestions.

I need something different in my life.

  • I suggest you read my series of work at home articles.  Please be sure to read How to Work at Home.  This should help you get started.  My articles contain excellent resources, information and links.  You can read them in my Journal here at Cafemom:

  • Focus on getting marketable skills first. Your shyness may be due to a lack of confidence in what you can/can't do. Give yourself more credit than that. With the confidence in your increased skills, you might find that you enjoy being around people more than you do now.

  • I have a few thoughts. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet and Microsoft Office Pro and have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). There is a company located outside of Chicago that matches up VAs and clients called VSI; the url is
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who make children's hair accessories in her basement and sells them to boutiques around the midwest. I work out of my home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping and business organization; I also do career and job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms with resumes, coverletters, job search strategy and interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly. -Robin
