  • There really is no magic answer. You just have to go out and do the things we have to do to get a job. Sorry, I know it's tough! Best Wishes to you.

  • I am in the same boat! I chose to become a SAHM 2 years ago and now babysit sometimes when needed. Is that a possibility for you? maybe putting an add on Craigslist or on the board at the elementary schools is an option?

  • You can download a free report from Ewen Chia on this website. He IS selling stuff on affiliate marketing, but the report is completely FREE. It explains how to do some simple stuff online to earn money. Its not a get rich quick idea. Its not a lot of money unless you work pretty hard, but its a start.

  • Sometimes you can actually spend more time on surveys than money you actually bring in.  There are other ways to make money out there.  You can find a work at home job, home-based job or even a business to start.   The only online jobs that I have done to earn money are writing for eHow, working for Amazon Mechanical Turk, and my favorite iPhone App, Field Agent.  You can check out all my ideas and opportunities in my Blog:  Mavi's Home Work.
