  • I was in banking, did some bookkeeping... the problem is that I no longer have a sitter or daycare for my children and I am willing to work, just not sure where to start. I don't have a lot of money to get my own business up and running so anything too costly would be out of the question.

  • I actually blog about work at home ideas and opportunities.  Maybe you can find something there:  Mavi's Home Work

  • You might look at www.care.com . They have several categories and there might be something that is a fit. Use the pulldown to see the categories and then search by zipcode. GL!!

  •  I would say to not waste time with work at home jobs...thI would rather see you invest in a business that you are really passionate the company, products, team and mentor you join.  When you have all that working for you and position yourself for success FIRST (instead of just joining anything that looks good) then you will prosper :).

  • 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 http://www.ivaa.org/ http://www.iavoa.com/ http://www.vanetworking.com/
    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.. 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 my bookkeeping clients
