I would like to know if any of you work from home or have a part time job and what it is? I have been doing home daycare for 11 years and would like to do something else now but I don;t want the 9-5 jobs where I won't get to see my kids much. Thanks

  • I work at home part time as a legal transcriptionist -- however, the office is in my home town so I think I just got lucky.

  • staying home witht he kids is so important in this world - i do partime office work while my son is in school - then I pick him up. Then when he is done with homework I focus on my home businesses which are primarily ran thru the internet - my favorite is Monavie, they pay the best commissions and bonuses. my second is SFI - this is a real no brainer, just takes time to build - is all internet, no sales, no calls, no stocking product. I purchase my all natural products from this company and kind of fell into it - free to join - they have many different programs - you can visit my page for info on all that I do -

    MonaVie - The Great Product - Opportunity Code: freedom

    SFI - Primary Page - Many options - Free to join

  • After being laid off my job of ten years, my husband said that it would be easier if I just got a part time job. I work at a local fast food chain and they really work well with my son's school activites and sports. Though, I'm not making anywhere near what I made before and have no benefits, its really nice to be with my child. So, I guess I got lucky in a way. At least I'm getting to spend alot of time with him, something my other job didn't let me do.

  • If you want nights and weekends, but not a retail job, try the public library in your town. I don't know what your education is, but in our town Pages don't need a degree; if you work in the Circulation Department you may only need a few college credit hours- you may not even need that depending on the library. If you have any degree, you can work Reference. In my library you need a masters to be full time Reference Librarian, but we have people with just a bachelors work reference part time. Most libraries now are open until 9 at night and on the weekends. When I was a Reference Librarian I worked at night and on the weekends. Now I work behind the scenes in Interlibrary Loan, so my job is 9-5. But its such a great variety, and most patrons are really great and fun to work with.

  • Thanks for the input so far. I have dial up internet still with the hopes of getting DSL very soon. So most work from home requires DSL. Any more suggestions?
