What can I do now...

I am only 15 weeks pregnant and the only one working right now and I am having crazy ligament pains and the job I have now is a cashier job, so im on my feet all day and constently moving back and forth. Does anyone know of anything I can do right away to start earning money so I can stay at home instead of standing all day behind a register?

  • ask them to give you a chair. I had an employee who worked my register and she sat on a bar stool. IT helped her and she could still work.

  • 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 www.ivaa.org, www.iavoa.com, www.vanetworking.com ..
    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

  • I agree to ask for a stool to sit on. You may have to get a doctors note that says that you need it, after that you should find working a while longer more bearable.

  • Discovery Toys is perfect for you. You work as much as you want. You can get started right away when you join on my secure website: discoverytoyslink.com/akbethesmith


    And after you have your precious baby he/she can be your official "toy tester". It is a fun carrer that can earn you some serious money. Hope to hear from you soon. And I hope that the ligament pain gets better soon.
