So I need ideas on making money from home...

I do not want any scams, or selling things through parties. I don't mind going to other people's houses but am a little uncomfortable with it with the recent craigslist murders and all that. I need to find something I can do part time, while caring for my 5 year old. I do have internet access, have my own transportation, and my schedule is pretty flexible. Anyone got any ideas?

  • 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. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview prep

  • I'm a work at home mom. When I started my son was about 3 1/2 and I was single. I went though everything from ebay to avon and settled on the internet. If your just starting out then ebay is a gr8 way to make money but my prefered method is blogging and affiliate marketing which takes no tech knowledge. I have a site (1 of many) you can find a section there on how to make money blogging if ur interested
