  • If you are looking for more than just a J-O-B ("Just Over Broke") and would truly like to bring in a 2nd income, yet work your schedule AROUND your family, earn a full-time income working part-time hours then I may have what you are looking for. Its a home based business with a 30-yr-old health and wellness company. All the training is free and online and we are partnered with Mercedes-Benz. This is not a "I just want let someone else decide what hours I work and then accept the pay they give me"-type of business. Its a legitimate home based business where your income potential is matched by your effort. If you are willing to learn and to be coachable I can teach you how to earn the money you need. Whether you need an extra $200, $500 or $5,000 per month, this business can change your life. Visit my website for more information or just contact me through CafeMom! I'd love to give you more info.

  • Try looking into elderly care. Depending on where you are, you might be near a Home Instead Senior Care. Check their website. I used to do it when my sons were small. I worked normally 9-3, and it was a very easy job if you can handle some very stubborn elderly lol. Most of the time the experience was awesome, and I only had a high school diploma also. My job duties included running errands for the elderly, sitting with them and being a companion in their home, helping them clean, making sure they eat, and sometimes taking them out to do things like shop or get haircuts, etc. It was a very enriching job for me, and the pay was decent too. I think the going rate at that time (10 years ago) was like $8.75-$10 an hour so I am pretty sure it would be a little bit more than that now.
