  • For WAH Jobs check reputable sites like Monster.com and Careerbuilders.com. Usually you find data entry and telemarketing type work. Be sure that you do NOT confuse a WAH Job with a WAH Biz Opp!! This happens alot and they are NOT the same. WAH Job you are traditionally employed but work at home and there are NO startup fees (if there is one, run!). WAH Biz Opps require some sort of startup fee since it will be your business. Good Luck!

  • I used to provide child care in my home. The job involves long days, but it allowed me to stay home with my children. I'm still at home, but haven't babysat since 2005. If you don't want such long days, you could always advertise part-time openings. If you decide to go this route just make sure that you create some time of form that states how much your services are, when they need to be paid, and what happens if payment is late. You will also need to decide how to turn in the income on taxes and whether or not you will be paid when the kids don't come. My policy was that if I had to take off a day or so for something that the parents did not have to pay for those days, but if the parents did not bring their child for some reason then they still had to pay.

  • I work as an independent rep for a company called Univera. You can check them out at www.univeraportland.com
    I can schedule my own time and stay at home with my kids while still earning money. It's not a scam and I really do get a constant paycheck
