  • 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.

  • Well it really depends if you are looking for a work at home job or business. The jobs are few and far between so be real careful when looking into them. There are so many scams!

    I work with Internet CEO Moms having my own business. I worked in the corporate world and got laid off in 2009 and it's been my blessing in disguise. :o) I found Internet CEO Moms a month later and have been with them ever since. We do not sell things, throw parties, distribute things, etc... It's really been a blessing to my family and I! I have been able to be home for my 3 year old son and I have made some life-long friends while doing this. :o)

  • I work with the same company Alyssa does. It's been a huge blessing for us! 4 years ago we had over 27000.00 in debt and we we're struggling to buy groceries - that's when I started looking. I know feel like I'm helping to contribute to our household as well as being with my kiddos at the same time. Highly recommended!

  • Day care is very hard work, long hours and little money. The tax write offs are nice but it's still very hard work. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you want to be a prisoner in your own home.
