  • I am going back to school, online, to be a MT medical transcriptionist, they work from home, or in medical facilities but you have to go to school for it but it will be WELL worth it once I am done! Good luck, there are alot of scams out there. is a legitimate home based business, check into it!

  • Thank you. Unfortunately I cannot go back to school while unemployed or I will lose my unemployment benefits. I will check out the site you mentioned though. Thanks so much!

  • Ameriplan is a great home business to be with. We don't have to do any cold calling or selling. We are a service based company that offers benefit plans to help Americans save on things they truly need vs trying to sell people things that they can't afford right now. we are also paid daily and recieve benefits. You can see tons of info on my profile and you can also go to . It works well for me, i have 2 little girls, 21mths & 6mths so it is nice to have the flexibility. It is also the only company I found that helped me save money as well as make it.

    Good luck girl with both your search and your pregnancy!!!

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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 and job search coaching
