I really need a job I can do from home. How? What?

I'm a fulltime stay at home mom and don't have a vehicle while my husband is at work. I want so badly to do something not only to help my husband bring home some extra money but to have something else to do with my time. I love being home with my children but I need something more as well! I've tried many things and yes, I have been scammed! NO MORE! I need to find something where I don't have to invest a bunch of money. I can't. Please, HELP!

  • Oh I was exactly where you are now! I ended up being burnt more than once! If you want to hear about what I do now, just stop by my page and say hi.

    Be very careful with all the responses you will get from this post - there are a lot of moms who have started a "latest, greatest" whatever who are really nice and well meaning, just trying to get by, and they end up hurting people because they did not really understand what they were getting into.

    Good luck!

  • 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.

  • Hey there :) My hubby and I also have only 1 car right now. So he goes to work and I stay home with our little one(soon to be 2 little ones)
    He didn't want me to have to work so I started looking for something I could do from home to take off soime of the weight on his shoulder.
    I found more than what I was looking for and I am so glad I did, it has been great for my family and it gives me somthing to do :)
    Stop by anytime to chat and I can show you what I do at home. There is NO selling or Cold calling involved!!!!!!!!
    Good Luck and God Bless :)

  • I am a stay at home mom to my 22 month old son. I joined Internet CEO Moms a while ago and I have to say it's the most positive experience! I work with an amazing group of moms who are very dedicated in helping other moms work from home and becoming financially independant. The training is free and the support is unlimited!! No selling, parties, or inventory. It is a very fun and flexible business and I love the fact that I can work when I want and most importantly, be there with my son through all his milestones.

    Check out my website

    I would be happy to give you more information and introduce you to the business!
