    I have lots of ideas on my blog:  Mavi's Home Work


    I also have a series of work at home articles on eHow.  They are listed in my Journal here at Cafemom.

  • 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, in addition to coaching

  • Some jobs you'll end up paying for equipment and/or background check anyways. Otherwise, they shouldn't cost you. Businesses cost money to start no matter what, but most of the money you put into them you can write off (assuming you make $600+ during the year) on taxes. has some great resources, jobs in lots of different areas of expertise/experience.
