I need some help and income asap

I am looking for something where I can start making money within the next 2 weeks. I cannot leave our home b/c I am preggo and trust me i have already tried applying for simple jobs; no call backs.
We are close to loosing our house and my marriage is suffering (i know others are having this problem too... ) I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas. I cannot invest money I have tried home biz and so far none is the ticket and i really dont have the money right now.

Any friendly advise, ideas, or something that has worked for others is welcome and appreciated...

  • I started babysitting a few kids in our home and if you do an evening shift for people who work in factories you can make some pretty decent money.

  • Start selling stuff on ebay or craigslist. Doing that got us through our months of unemployment.

  • 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 two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching.
