  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!
    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.
    I had searched for a work at home job for two years. This had proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I'd come across were scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.
    I am so lucky to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!

  • If you are on welfare, then you most certainly qualify for your daycare expenses to be paid for by the state. Call your local child care resources or check with your public aid office. They can get you a list of every daycare in your area that accepts state payments. This will enable you to get a job without worrying about the cost of daycare.

  • Where do you live? Some companies now have daycares in their facilities.. Mine does.. they take infants. Do your research though, don't just trust anyone to watch your baby... You could call the state organization that certifies daycares.. Sorry, I can't think of the name.. they can recommend people for you. Also, I can recommend something for you to try.. I used to do merchandising.. You work for a company doing projects in stores,such as Walmart... Part time, make your own schedule.. it worked for me when my kids were at home.. Try going to look at jobs and enter in your state... Lots of good money to be found there.. but possibly you could take the baby in with you from time to time...

  • Hi
    I have 3 small children and researched long and hard for a work at home job. I really wanted to contribute to my family and keep my kids with me during the day. So I did lots of research and I found a great career! I recently have come across a home-based business opportunity with no large investment, no inventory and no risk. It is an Inc. 500 manufacturing company. I work from home with a company that manufactures products that we're already buying elsewhere, but they are better, safer & healthier. We just help set up customer accounts and the company pays us to do so. It has benefited our family so much! I never have to leave my house to be successful! If you would like some more information, please feel free to ask me about how I made it happen for my family! I would love to share the information about our company! I think if you hear all the details about working for this company it will make so much sense to you.

  • I know what it is like ot be on welfare. I was there for about 5 years. What changed was the fact that I started learning about herbs and that changed my need for welfare. I learned how to keep my family healthy and how to strtch my budget. ThenGod led me to a great home business that encouraged me to help people with the herbal information that I knew and to learn even more on the way. Today life is better for us and I am training others to do what I have done. If you are interested email me at or here at cafemom. God Bless!

  • I started doing Avon to supplement my income from home, it has almost doubled my pay in the last 4 months. I do it online, which is a great help since i have a 9 month old baby. If you'd like, look at my website, and see how it works. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me. :) Good luck!
