  • I am starting a course to do medical transcription. It's a pricey course but the money afterward is worth it.

  • And I took med transcription and ended up hating it. Not only that, but I thought it would be easier to stay home with my daughter and it wasn't. You really have to be able to listen and concentrate on the recordings to type everything out accurately and it's not possible when you have kids to take care of.

  • 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.
