Finding Work at Home Jobs

Until here recently I was working for a local insurance agent. I was completely chewed out over not cold calling people to get more sales. I stood in his office with tears welling up in my eyes as he fussed at me like I was a little kids. I couldn't stand the pressure of selling like that so I quit. I love my kids and for a long time I babysat out f my home while my husband worked. But, I really don't want to get back into babysitting. I have three of my own and I'm busy enough with them. I have considered working part time at night when my husband gets home. But, I really want to be home with my family in the evenings, however I will do what needs to be done. I don't have a degree or anything, but I have alot of clerical/office and banking experience. I worked in a bank for 5+ years. I like working outside of the home but, we really can't afford childcare. Any advice on finding good work at home thats flexible and I can do with kids running around? I'd rather not have any sales jobs. Thats just not my cup of tea. My idea is to get into the medical field and train/school and move up. I don't know if theres med fields that hire for home help? Any advice would be wonderful. Thank you ladies. I'm just stuck between a rock and hard place. We need two incomes. It's not cheap raising kids!

I've seen indeed.com recommended often for work-at-home jobs. Most of them require the same amount of attention that you would give at an office, though, so if your kids are very young you might have to hire a babysitter or mother's helper anyway. It's something to keep in mind when you're looking at the job listings.

I am general/legaltranscriber from home. While the hours are flexible, it's monontous and boring work. It also is difficult work. The pay depends on your typing skills and your ability for details. There are many places that hire beginning trancscribers out there tho the pay isn't great for more experienced ones. I average 10 dollars an hour and I'm not the fastest typist around. It takes a lot of patience

Also, there are no benefits offered as you are an independent contractor and you have to take out your own taxes.

My niece was a medical transcriptionist when her daughter was little, but you have to go to school to get the training for that.

Sorry. I hope you find something.

Just be very careful. There are a lot of scams out there.
