I have been researching off and on for about 4 years now and most everything I find is not legit, or you have to pay for it first, I don't think so! I don't have the money to invest in a lot of things and then lose it.
I have young children in school and would like to find something I could do from home on school days, so that I don't have to get a babysitter. I also know of other people at home with small children that could benefit from working at home, so any information, suggestions that anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your newsletter and resources, I really enjoy reading them and learning about all different types of stuff.
Well this is a little bit off what you are looking for but I will still put out this suggestion. If ALL of your children are in school, have you thought of substitute teaching, working as a teacher's aide, lunchroom aide, office aide? I work as a substitute teacher and this works great for my family. I will start my 3rd year next month and love it. I am able to work the days I can and say no to the others. I am off when the kids are off and have no need for a sitter. As I said this is a little bit more and not quite what you were looking for BUT it helped my family solve the problem of me working.

I live in Florida. The Home Shopping Network has openings for: (I copied and pasted from their website) Work at Home Representatives are the primary support for our customers. HSN Customer Care Representatives take inbound calls to complete sales transactions, up-sell merchandise and resolve customer concerns. Representatives receive comprehensive training so they can treat each call with care and provide excellent service. This position requires individuals who enjoy working in a fast-paced, exciting, customer-focused atmosphere. Eligible candidates must have a PC with Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating system and high-speed internet access. In addition the use of a standard phone line (landline) with a 727/813 area code is required. The dedicated use of this equipment would be required for the entire duration of each shift. I'm sure there are other companies in other areas of the country that have similar jobs available. Hope this helps!
I work from home, but as an interpreter. I cannot complain at all. I have time for my home, myself, and work. I even have weekends off so I can visit my family. I don't spend any money on public transportation/taxis (I don't have a car) ALTHOUGH because I'm at home I tend to eat a little more. If you know another language besides English and have access to a phone line and a quiet space you can work from i.e. no kids yelling, or dogs barking, you should consider this. I know it's not what you're looking for, but it's an at-home job. (07/31/2006)
I'm SERIOUSLY considering beginning ONLINESURVEYS.com in the next week or so. It comes highly recommended as a list of reliable companies who pay well.There's MUCH more money to be made than I realized. The list they sell costs about $35, I believe. We then line up ONLINE with each company we want (like Wal-Mart and Target)for pay between $15 and $150 for each survey we complete ONLINE, for our OPINION of products. I'm skeptical of most things on the Internet, but this comes recommended by a ministry with whom I am familiar, called angelfoodministry.com. It seems like the best for my needs. I understand we require no training, just basic typing/computer skills/and a computer. I plan to buy a printer with my first check, but I may not be able to work long hours since I am disabled and will have to do it as I can get to it and as much/little as I want/can. I believe the income is deposited directly into your bank account. There are also benefits such as free merchandise from some merchants. Good luck and God bless. (08/05/2006)
I will tell you what my ex-mother-in-law told me, and which 13 years later still is good advice. She told me that "IF I have to work," "or If I want to work" work at a school. She worked at one for 27yrs. I will tell you that it was GREAT advice. There is custodial work, and most of it at least in our school district it pretty easy. Dusting, sweeping, emptying garbage cans and so on. There is the cafeteria area as well. You could be a Noon-time aide, which is basically helping the kids in opening something, making sure they are behaving inside, and escorting them to the playground and watching for their safety. There are many positions in the kitchen and or snack bar in the schools as well. Or, you could also be a bus driver. Now before you say "No way, I can't do that", I thought the same way, and now I love it. The training isn't hard, and most of the time, I believe the company pays for your physical and license. At our branch, I am able to do the bus job, and also work at a school. I have time between to either run a few errands, doctor appointments, clean, or make sure that I have things ready for dinner when I get home. This is just a thought for some. Hopefully I didn't offend anyone, this is only my second post. Also, you might want to see if your school has a website, access it and see if they have a employment section that you could check on. Also another thought for the bus driving job, at least at our branch, they do have summer work to sign up for, also trips that they need drivers for during school. And, at our branch, we are even able to get some, not a lot of unemployment. I at least think for some, this is a great way to work to earn money, and with doing either the one, or all, when there is no school, You don't have work. Snow days, school holidays and SUMMERS off! Good Luck (08/10/2006)
