  • 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.

  • Well, I work from home with Ameriplan.. I have two small children and I am able to do both. There is no "sales" or cold calls, you can work on or off line and we are based in Dallas! So, you would even be able to get one on one in person training from some of our team and company leaders if you chose to! You will need an internet connection and a phone, but there is no pushy sales to do, and you don't have to push friends of family to join either. You'll get paid daily, for new business, weekly for bonuses and monthly for all "residual" income. While Ameriplan is NOT a get rich quick, you can easily earn a full time income working from home and our AVERAGE income after just 3 to 5 years is 6 figures. Plus you get benefits that will save your family THOUSANDS of dollars a year!!!

    You can get all the information about our company, services and more at

    Let me know if you have questions!

  • I cannot sell either, I am to shy! I work from home with an amazing company! It is hard to find! It took me 6 years. No selling, or inventoy or home shows! It is $1 for the business kit!
    I have three kids, 5,3,1! If you are willing to work then this is for you! Not a get rich quick thing, which is good because they never work and probably are scams. Our company is awarded by the Better Business Bureau!
    Conact me for more info, we have an amazing webcast to answer all your questions or contact me anytime. Here is my website too!

  • Finding work at home job can be stressful and alot of them out there are scams so be careful when doing your search. I work at home around my 5 children. They are 3,2,1, 2 month old twins.

    I work at home through Ameriplan. I found this to be the best fit for me and my family. I did alot of research on them before I joined. I know alot of people who could use the discount card and that is the other main reason why i joined.

    Right now you can join Ameriplan for only $25. Last time they had a promotion like this was last year, so if you would like to make more money in 2010 now is the time to get on board. If this sounds like something you might be interested in please visit my websites.

    I hope that you find a good fit for you and your family wherever that may be :-)
