Need Help Please!!!!

I am a stay at home mom , I never used to be but now we have two boys and my fiance works and I take care of the kids. Somehow in my fiance's eyes I guess that means that I don't need my own money . This is really bothering me even though he tells me whatever I need no problem, but I am not happy with that , I want to be able to provide and spend or put money away or make my own decisions .Any way I have looked into working from home and EVERYTHING IS A SCAM!!!! Does anyone know of any LEGIT work at home ideas that don't make you broke starting them???

Please I will type, data entry make phone calls, I don't care as long as it provides steady work and payment for it!!!!

  • Can he give u a allowance so u have money to spend - u are working taking care of his kids, and house, and cooking. He would be paying for daycare if u did work, so why not ask for an allowance- just enough for ur personnel things. * I always ask for gift cards for every occassion - so I can buy what I want for myself.

  • Have u thought about babysitting one other child- your home any way- maybe get someones kid off the bus everyday for extra money? Put ads up at the local grocery store.

  • Hi, I am a Mary Kay consultant and this company has been around for 45 years, there is a lot of success with mk. MK is also a member of the BBB for years. I can provide you with more detailed info and enrollment information, MK is the only work at home company in which you make 50% profit of everything you sell alll the time! Trust me I did do alot of research only to have spent alot of money into starting businesses that only gave me 25%-35% commission on what I sold. Whatever I can help you with just message me and I'll do my best to help.
    best of luck 2 you

  • I have a couple of thoughts. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & 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 & clients called VSI; the url is The owner is Tracey Wallace.
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. I work out of my home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly -Robin

  • Hey there! I know the work from home search is frustrating....been there and done that. But just because something requires an investment does not mean that it is a scam. ALL business (home businesses and businesses in your town) will require an investment. HOWEVER, a job should not!! Most people that work from home have a home business because legit home jobs are VERY hard to find.

    And I just wanted to add that Donald Trump actually recomends Network Marketing (home businesses). I have a journal entry about it if you care to check it out....

    You CAN work from home and be just need to find the company that is right for you!
