I'm looking for a "work from home" job. Anyone have any good tips?

I'm taking a course and I need to get some part time work. I don't want to work out of the home as my boys tend to misbehave more when I'm gone. I'm looking for legitamit work here. No scams.

  • I actually just came across a new WAH position. It's with Babytobee. They pay between $10-$13/hr . You must be able to put in at least 10 hours a week between mon-frid. If you would like the information for applying just send me a PM and I will be more than happy to forward it to you!

  • Doctors and lawyers sometimes need help with transcribing notes, and they pay a decent wage. You can do it at home. If you can find someone who does this, maybe they could hook you up! Good luck!

  • 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

  • I make extra money working online. I've cleared over 14k in the last year, it's not a way to get rich, but you can avoid retail/fast food jobs by doing it. You can see what I'm doing at  if you're interested.
