  • Hello! I got laid off in April and my dream was to stay home with my now 22 month old son also! That's all I really wanted to do. I found this girl that works with Internet CEO Moms and she turned me on it. I am loving what I am doing now. I work with a great group of girls, I don't sell anything, and I don't have to keep inventory. Most of all, I am staying home with my son. Check my website out at or you can send me an email at I would love to introduce you to the business! Hope to hear from you soon :-)

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. 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
