Anyone know of a great stay at home job?

I am currently on retail and I want "normal" work hours! I am 2 girls and want to spend time with them and my husband! But, I am not sure about these stay at home jobs that I keep finding online. They aren't giving any information, and I don't want to risk my family's financial security! I want something that I can make the same, better if more, income that I do now!

  • I have created a series of work at home articles on eHow.  They contain excellent resources, ideas and information.  Also, I have a Blog about computer jobs sorted into those that pay via Paypal and those that pay utilizing other means.  You can check them all out at my website:

  • Babysitting in your home. It's the most financially secure way. This could be someone looking to pick their kid up from school, drive them to sports, etc.

  • I don't know if you are looking for a job or business opportunity but I am a stay at home mom to my now 2 year 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 independent. 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.

    It's only $1 to enroll until the 23rd of this month. It's an AWESOME promotion :-)

    Check out my website

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

  • The company I work for has many independent reps (NO INVESTMENT) who sell our books. You simple send people to a special web page (created for free for you) to buy the books and all the credit card processing, and shipment of the book is taken care of on the website. YOU ARE NEVER REQUIRED TO BUY ANYTHING. Commissions range from 8-40% depending on the book, and as your volume of sales increase, your commission percentage does also. The more people you tell, the more chances for sales and the more money you can make.

    Find out about the most recent and popular book here:
    and if it looks interesting, click the contact button to send an email that you want to earn commissions, and someone will get back to you right away and answer all your questions and NOT ask you for money.

    Wishing you awesome success in whatever business venture you choose.
