  • He works nights and works weekends so thats out. And we don't have a Mc Donalds or anything like that out here, he really doesn't want me to work but I want a bit of extra money in case our car breaks down or something like that. We live in a really small town in the middle of nowhere so there aren't many jobs out here. My hubby drives almost an hour to get to work.

  • I currently work from home owning my own business. When I got laid off in April of 2009, I wanted to stay home so I could keep my 3 yr old son with me but still contribute to the household. I know when I was looking into things, I found out A LOT of stuff out there is just scams. I would suggest into looking at the Better Business Bureau to make sure the company is legit!!! I would hate for you to be scammed.

    I wish you best of luck!! :-)

  • 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; additionally, I handle the business end of my spouse's business, and do medical billing and coding one day a week for one of m
