  • 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

  • Can you capitalize on a skill you have like sewing or photgraphy? I had an alterations business out of my home before I move out of state.

  • There are great jobs available out there. eBay is always my number one suggestion! I also have a Blog which has lots of different ideas and opportunities. It's far easier than you think to start a business on your own. The link to my Blog, Mavi's Home Work, is listed on my home page here at Cafemom.

  • I am a Independent Demonstrator w/ Gold Canyon and absolutely love my business. I work w/ an AWESOME team, have tons of support and training. I love this business for many reasons. One of them being is that I can work around the schedule of my family, two, the business is easy because the candles sell themselves. They are awesome! There is so much more! Check out my journal on my home page called 10 reasons to sell gold canyon! If you love candles, this business is for you!
