Working from home

Hi, I am 24 weeks pregnant and I have a 2 year old. We need money desperately. It is a very big possibility that my husband will be laid off in the next few weeks. We are also getting ready to close on a house. If he gets laid off we will have to back out of the deal and move to something very cramped and small. Anyway, regardless of if he gets laid off or not, I still need to find some way to bring in some money from home. Im not talking about cashcrate, surveys, mystery shopper or any of that silly stuff that takes forever to make a dime. I need something for real that doesnt cost a fortune to start and will be an honest way to make some money. Help! Is there anything other than selling things like avon, parylite, tupperware?

  • I am a work at home mom of three great children that are 4 1/2 yrs old, 2 1/2 yrs old and 15 months old. I was looking for a long time to find something that I could do at home so that I could still be home with my children.

    I am a business partner with this team and am so excited about what this business is doing for me and my family! No selling, no stocking, no MLM, no large investments! Very straight forward legitimate business opportunity with a Fortune 500 company backed by the BBB and EPA.

    I would love to share what I do with you, please email a good time for us to talk over the phone.

    Looking forward to sharing my information with you and I know you will be glad you hear this information.

  • 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 three lines of business; I am doing lead generation for a sales and service organization; 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 prep.
