  • Im currently in the process of onboarding with LiveOps as an insurance agent. Liveops is a company you can get contracted to work with to take orders for infomercials. I have my insurance license, so I got in faster. It can take months to get on with them, but you can schedule your own hours and work from home.

  • When I was younger and a single parent to 3 girls, I found it pointless to work and have half my paycheck go out the window to daycare.....so I decided to start my own daycare...worked perfectly! I charged $15 a day per full time kid but that was 12 yrs ago...if i did that now I would charge $25 a day per full time kid

  • 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 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 & job search coaching.

  • I have an opportunity you will love. I have been looking or work at home opportunities for about 3 years now and I finally found a great company. I work with a wonderful group of women who are moms just like me and are going through the same stuff as me its so wonderful to have a team like this! You can make your own hours if you want part time great if you decide you want to go full time later awesome you do whatever you want. I work like 2 hrs a day right now no weekends and sometimes I don't work at all on some days. Go to my website to get more information I know you will be happy you did! I Look forward to talking to you soon!
