What types of jobs can I get that I will be able to work from home??

When I have my baby, my boyfriend and I will be moving to a different house in a different town, and I am nervous to find work, because I'm afraid that all of my income will go to childcare. I have seen bad reviews on some "work-at-home" jobs like medical billing, and I do not know that I'm comfortable enough with sales that I could make a good income from it...any ideas?

  • Are you looking for a job or work at home business, there is a difference. If you are looking for a WAH business I work for a company that is 38 years old, A+ rating with the BBB and NYSE listed. We have bonuses this month ranging 1500-6000. If you are interested message me.

  • Do me a favor and search CM for 'work from home' or 'home-based' jobs. You'll be surprised by how many posts come up. Nearly every single question like this gets the same answers. I'd do that and find something that works for you.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? 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, in addition to coaching; and a little medical billing.

You can make great money w/ this, just depends how much you work at it as it is w/ any other business. Best of luck on your search!
