Does anyone know of a real "work from home" company that I can work part time with? Times are tough for a single mom.

I need an honest way to bring in an extra $400 a month into my household. Ends are just not meeting with my present salary. I need something that works and is not a scam.

  • 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 www.ivaa.org.
    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

  • I work at home with my company and I love what I do. We have been awarded the blue torch award from the BBB and you have your own personal mentor which immediately told me that it was not a scam. We do not sell, stock, or deliver anything so if you are interested you can visit my website www.workathomeunited.com/heathers and fill out the form there. In the website it also tells a little about who we are. So check it out and see what you think.

  • Check out this site for some ideas. tarasextraincome.blogspot.com There are lots of ideas in the archives. Also, I'm in the process of reviewing 2 children's book companies, so if you email me I'll let you know by next week what the results of both are.
