  • If you enjoy doing customer service work and talking on the phone then I suggest looking into You have two options with them. You can either start your own virtual assistant business (more costs but you can make more per hour) with them or join another virtual assistant business (no out of pocket cost except for background check, but you won't make as much per hour). The training is anywhere from 2-5 weeks depending on which company you choose to service. Most companies require that you do a minimum of 15 hours during the week and 4-5 hours on the weekend. You can schedule your hours while your kids sleep or while your husband is home that way you will have no background noise. There are a select few companies you are looking for chat customer service reps, so while you will need to be able to concentrate, your background noise doesn't matter.

  • 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.
