  • 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). For more information, go to
    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 (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly –Robin

  • Try starting your own home business. You're better off in the long run and know you have support from the company.. I work as an Avon Unit Leader and have a lot of success and seen real results and profits coming in since day one. Its only $20 to start just go to and use reference code dhullum You'll get a start up kit and if you sign up before Saturday you'll get your webstore for free for four campaigns. Its a lot of fun and you probably know plenty of great customers already! GL!

  • I am a work at home mom and I love this company and everything that they stand for and i stand behind and support them 110%! This was about the only company that you did not have to pay alot up front and that was legitimate!! I have a two year old son that has to have 20+ surgeries over the course of his growing-years so it was important that I had something to do at home. I am soooo glad that I came across this company and I am trying to tell the world about them!!! It was the best decision I have made for my family!! For more information e mail me at or go to my website for more information on how to contact me to find out more

  • Personally I would look for a business if I were you. Since you work so much already you need flexibility of being your own boss. In the long run a business is going to give you much more earning potential than a job.  A lot of the time it give you residual income. I have been more than impressed with a company called Efusjon. Here is a video that will explain everything. let me know if you have questions or want to get involved.
