Does anyone know of a job where I can stay at home?

I'm a single mother and I would like to be able to stay home with my son. I think it would make things a little easier right now, but it is only me supporting him. Does anyone know of a legit, stay at home job that makes a good amount of money?

  • 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 www.ivaa.org, www.iavoa.com, www.vanetworking.com ..
    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 small business marketing and medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.

  • I was never able o find a job that paid well if it was legit and all the ones that said they paid well were scams. I stated a business instead. If your interested in a business and like candles, check out Scentsy, www.Wicklesswithnickless.com.
