  • 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 (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.

  • I am an MA by trade and have thought about medical transcription. I'm just not sure about where to start. My former employer would love to have me back but they don't have any positions available for me to do at home.

  • I work from home with Internet CEO Moms. I'm not sure what you're looking for, but this team has helped me stay at home with my two little girls. My kids are 3 and 6 months so it's definately possible to do this with your kiddos around! We don't have to have parties, keep inventory or deliver products, that was a huge plus for me!

    Good Luck!

  • Have you considered a home-based business? I am an Independent Senior Consultant with Thirty-One Gifts. Now is a great time to join and the start up investment is just $99. The start up kit is amazing and our products are awesome and practically sell themselves. You have the ability to set your own hours and make your own goals. I have 4 children and having my own business has allowed me to be home for my children and make extra money at the same time. It is a very rewarding experience.
