  • Ok...same boat as you sorta. lookign for stay at home work for aw hile so i can afford college and keep being a stay at home mommy. this is what i found as legitimate. 1, CHA Cha guide (but you will not make a lot..but a lil extra) 2. KGB (same thing as ChaCha but they pay more per question, they are full right now though) 3. transcription jobs/data entry, I do not do those but the few moms ive ran into that do are ok with it, you just type a lot and get a lil cash for it, transcription means you listen to audio and type it into a document. 4. at home businesses (i will not go into this because i have stayed away from them out of preference) 5. affiliate marketing (this one can make you good money if you can get a site/blog to have good traffic plus once you get it going)hard part is getting traffic to your site and picking a good niche/topic for your topic
