Why do so many moms on here ask about good paying work-at-home jobs?

If it were that easy to find a work at home job that pays over $600 a week, don't you think more moms would be working from home? I think that it's a far reach to think that it's that easy. Yes, there are some legit jobs but for MOST legit jobs you have to have a degree. For example, medical transcription, insurance, etc.

  • I personally think its annoying to see "work at home" job question twenty thousand times a day. Search the posts first before you ask the same dumb question over and over. No I don't want to work at home, I have a great job doing what Iove.

  • The economy is failing for many, job losses, stocks falling, home loans defaulting and credit card companies changing rates and fees, this is affecting many, and we all need to start watching our spending habits, start saving money and pay off bills, and stop shopping for unnecessary items. A part-time job at home can help you pay off bills, save for college for your children, put away money for retirement. Don't wait til someone in your family loses their job. There are many ways to work from home. I have been working part-time from home and have earned over $21,000 and have been able to help other moms start a business from home. What is your goal and where will you be in 5 years if you don't start now?

  • Because they want to stay home with their children with out being a burden to society... It's nice to see they are not just trying to mooch off the system... There are ligit jobs from home, most are scams... check out Igomogul, they are ligit, cost to get started lol but they pay the bills if you are not lazy and are driven.

  • Some of us could not get any real "work" done with kids underfoot and distractions like TV. Thank goodness for the office......

  • Hell, I work from home and make a decent wage.. what's wrong with that? There are A LOT of legit jobs women can get to work out of their homes... crafts, day care, medical transcribes, working from home for a corporation, secretary work, etc... just because you dont' have one, doesn't mean you should complain about those looking to try to get any extra cash they can manage with out having to sacrifice their families.

  • By asking other moms on here, you just may find something you really would enjoy doing. Moms may have information that they wish to pass on. It never hurts to ask, I always say. There are tons of moms online seeking work right now, networking is the way to go!!
