need a job

I need a job and soon. I need something that doesn't involve using a phone at all, nor the internet all the time. I will not have a home phone for quite some time. I will not be able to get the internet for some time, either. We are in a very poor county job-wise, and I have applied for 2 years with no takers. I am pregnant (5 months right now), and when I got an interview a couple months ago, I was rushed out the door as soon as "pregnant" came out of my mouth. I'm attempting to sell things on craigslist, but I don't have much, not anything of any real value. I am beyond broke, and in debt to the point I can't put 10 cents into a business. This is a matter of me paying bills, losing DD, or going to jail, so HELP!

  • Dang that sucks sorry you are going thru that.How about going to the social services office and get some emergency help, like food stamps, and i believe they also help yo with some money to get by...

  • Unfortunately, DH makes too much to get ANY help from the county--for anything, including heat!

    The site you listed wouldn't come up on my computer, but I can't put up any money to start anything.

  • I have a business with Ameriplan and I love it. The start up fee is only $25.00. I know what you mean about not being able to afford to start something. For the time being, why don't you check into ChaCha? I have looked at it, and I think I am going to try it out for fun. You need the internet, but lots of people tell me they work one or two hours a day to make an extra couple hundred dollars a month. If you get back on your feet and are interested in Ameriplan, just let me know. With the way the economy is right now and the increasing number of layoffs going on, lots of people need affordable benefits and Ameriplan has what they need.
    Good luck to you. PM me if you have any questions.

  • I have done a lot of research in the work from home area. Most of what I found were places that you had to pay for information or pay to get a start up kit but then was left with no help to get the business started. Look at my Ehow article for all the companies I found that did not require a start up fee or require you to purchase a book. Hope it helps!!!!!

  • I make decent money taking surveys. I was looking for a real sah job but got sick of the scams. This gives us just enough every month, sometimes a little more. It is completely free and you get a check once a month. Check it out at ..

    PM me if you have any questions.
