Does anyone work from their home?

Hello all! I was reading up about a woman that lives about 30 miles from me in a small town that works from home on her computer and makes good money. Does anyone work from home and if so would you please be helpful and give me information about it. I am a mother of three children ages 4, 1, and 3 months. I have never left the youngest of the three yet. I'm breastfeeding and I'm very attached to her as she is me. Please help me so i dont have to leave my babies. Thank you,

  • in the process of getting a wah job! I sent out my resume an hour or so ago *finger crossed*.
    I found the job listing on under PT jobs. The job title is "homebound debt collector". So I reckon I'd be making outgoing calls helping consumers pay off their debt with *so and so* by offering payment plans and stuff. it pays by commission and bonuses only, but if I got the knack for it, it sounds like it could be a fun and well paying job (ceo advertised 50k/year can be made easy with the right work ethic), plus i can still stay at home with my 14 month old.

  • 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

  • I work from home full time and earn a great income. I have 2 full time businesses and a few ones that I work on the side as well. I really love what I do. I am able to support my family and be with them and watch them grow. Couldn't get any better. I would love to chat with you about what I do and answer any questions you have. My two main companies are Ameriplan and FreebieForce. With Ameriplan I help people work from home or save money with our low cost dental and medical benefits. With Freebie Force I sign new members to our great Freebie Program where you can access hundreds in Free stuff each month for a small fee. Last month I got Diamond Earings FREE, and the membership is only $19.95. Then, if you would like to make an income you just tell people about it. That simple.

    Here, get all the information you need:

  • Hi Annie, I am a mother of three too and I know what you mean about not wanting to leave your babies. I have been very fortunate to have found a good, legitimate company that you can make real money working from home with. Have a look at this website and go to "get info now" if it looks appealing to you:
