Stay at home and work

I want to stay at home with my child but I need to work. I was thinking of medical billing or transcription but have no idea where to start. Anyone have any suggestions?

  • I wouldn't do transcription - my sister went and took a course at the local community college and then found out that most of the physician's offices are going to doing everything on computer so they don't have notes that need to be transcribed. Not sure about billing - that might be going the same way.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • I went to school for transcription and didn't really like it. I also have a site with different ideas on it.
