Work at home!?!?

Does anyone have any suggestion to start bring in a small income and staying at home with the kids? Eveything I look up is really just telemarcketing and I dont want that. Just something I can do from the computer after my kids go to bed or when my husband gets home

  • Have tried looking up telecommunting jobs online? Some jobs like medical transcription can be done at home. If you're good at writing or typing, you could always do freelance work. And, of course, there's always the direct sales positions.

  • Girl, you can check out my Blog, I have lots of ideas and opportunities.  I try to post things as I find them.  Most are screened though, because I won't put anything on there that I can't find information on:  Mavi's Home Work

  • I sell Scentsy!!! I have no trouble working my schedule around my family. I not only have my children to care for...I also care for my sister's kids, and sometimes my B-I-L kids...all together that is anywhere between 2-7 kids. I've made really good money, and I LOVE working with this company!!! Let me know if you're interested and if you have any questions.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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 and job search coaching.

  • I sell products from Scent-Sations. I can work when I want so it's really nice. I don't have to build a team or do home parties. I have no minimum amount to buy, etc. If you'd like to know more about what I do please feel free to send me a message.
