Does anyone know of any on line jobs... real online jobs?

My husband's job is seasonal & we are strapped for cash now. I have been a stay at home mom for 2 years now. I (regrettably) am on food stamps & medicaid which is a lot of help. If I go back to work outside the home I would have to pay for child care, plus health insurance, plus the difference for food b/c food stamps will go down. I've done the math & going to work would end up costing me- so I need to stay home. I NEED A REAL JOB THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO STAY HOME! PLEASE HELP!!! I tried Avon, but it didn't work out for me.

  • Good luck. I wanted to do that, but I just can't sell stuff, and that's the only jobs I found. Otherwise you could take a medical transcription course. I did that, and I believe I would have found work if I'd have been more persistant (my classmates did). I gave up too easy, because I wasn't SURE tha'ts what I wanted to do. It'll take some time and investment. These are hard times for finding work anywhere, especially online. Hope you find something!

  • Sure do.  I have created a series of work at home articles on eHow.  I also have a list of companies that hire for work at home via the computer.  You can find all these listings at my website:

  • I sell candles, what woman doesn't love candles? AFFORDABLE, great smelling, long lasting what's not to love? Compared to the well known Yankee candles, our heritage line is 4 oz more, $6 cheaper. You can earn your kit for free this month with lots of extras. Gold Canyon sells more than canldes though, from a home line to a body line and everything in between. It's a great way to meet new people, have fun, and earn extra cash. If you would like to learn more feel free to send me a message or check out my website at

  • 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.
