  • 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. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from 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 have 4 home businesses...  2 full time and 2 part time...  3 of which will cost you $20 or less to start...

    Check these out...

    FreebieForce ~
    Just take the Free Tour

    Teaporia ~
    Free to start but you will need to put money in if you want to do parties. But you don't have to do parties...

    GreenSmoke ~
    Pays you $25 to start! Work it free online or do parties with an investment.

    You can also look in to affiliate ships. I have over 100 now that I do. I am in the process of building an online mall with them. Then all I will have to do is promote the mall...  PM me if you have questions or want more info...

  • For only 30.00 to start I can set you up in a business that will not fail and you will be set for life. We are a team of Moms who help you, support you, give you a free website. We do not leave your side for one moment. Your building a business as with any of these other things but it will be a business that you can later, many years from now, will to your children so they will have financial security as well. No risk, No parties, No inventory. It's the perfect work at home business.

    If you can borrow or find a total of 90.00. I can have you making money in two to three months if you really put the effort out and make it a priority.

    In ten years you can be making a six digit income and never look back again.

    Let me know if I can help.

    Blessing to you and your family.
