Hey ladies.. after much consideration I don't want to return to my job at work in June. My brother is starting his own medical billing business wihch once it is up and running, I will be co-working with him. However, it's going to take a few months to get a few doctors, get the programs down pat, etc.. so in the mean time........ I'm supposed to be going back to my job in June. Thing is.. it's a night shift job and while my family can watch the babies and I can do it, I don't want to. I don't want to put them in daycare yet, I want to be able to stay at home with them.

SO, I'm thinking of working from home somehow. Do any of you do this? What do you do? I'm not looking to make tons of money, I am just looking to survive till I can start doing the medical billing as well. I would look online but it's hard to know what to trust and what works and what doesn't.. so I'm looking and asking for anyone who has first hand expierience from doing something at home. What do you do? How can I go about looking into it?

Any help will be much appreciated.. Thank Ya'll!

I've been a work-at-home mom for a couple years now. If you find out how to make $2000 a month doing it, please let me know! It is possible, but I don't know how likely that is. I have found that working at home has been more of a supplemental income.

I would recommend finding something that interests you and consider it extra money for a while. Unless you've got a real knack for it, it will take at least six months to start making any decent money from any home business.

Nicole does have a lot of great suggestions on her website and I have a few programs on mine. Feel free to ask about any of them. If Nicole doesn't pop in, I'll go find her for you. Actually, I'll go tell her that she should stop by.

Hi Moms! What are your interests?

Are you looking for a business where you trade time for money? If so, what are your interests? I have some resources here...
http://www.showmomthemoney.com/businessideas.asp

If you're looking for a telecommuting job, I can send you to my friend, Nell, who owns http://www.mommysplace.net/

Or a Direct Sales company? If so, what are your priorities? Recruiting? Minimums? Start up? New company? Solid settled company?
http://www.showmomthemoney.com/opportunities.asp

And, I did an interview last week about all options on WAHMTalkRadio. It is archived here
http://www.wahmtalkradio.com/past-resource...ces-040405.html

I hope this helps get you started researching the options available.
Best wishes for much success!
Nicole

I'm a former high school teacher, and I do lots and lots of tutoring. I realize that's kinda specialized.

Ohhhh Alice, glad to run into you... I'm a certified teacher looking for my first teaching job at the secondary level, but interested in extra money opportunities with the baby on the way. How do you go about finding students to tutor? I'm endorsed in English and Drama, so I'm assuming I could tutor reading and writing at most levels. What do you charge, if you don't mind me asking?

What is it that you do now? Just wondering what experience you have now. Also I think it is possible to make $2000 a month at home but I don't think its something that you can do right off the bat usually. It might take you some time to build up to that. I definitely think its doable just depends on how hard you work at your business and what you do.

It's amazing how easy it was to get started. Each fall, I write a letter to each of the local public high schools, as well as any local Catholic high schools. I send it to either the director of guidance or the Math Dept chairman; you can usually get the names online. I give them my credentials and my phone number and address, and ask them to pass my name on to anyone looking for a tutor. By late May, I always have more kids than I can handle, and stop taking new kids.

There are three teenagers who live down the block and they watch my kids while I tutor-- I do it from my own home. They started 4 years ago when the younger 2 (twins) were 11- but remember, I'm right downstairs in the dining room. They're now 16, and their older sister chips in when she's home from college. I paid them $5/hour when I just had 2 kids; now it's up to $7 for three. They're wonderful-- they have my kids for hours at a time, take them to the park, read to them and so on.

As to what I charge: I have a friend who tutors who charges $100 an hour. (I live on Long Island, NY-- everything here is higher than most of the rest of the country.) I can't in good conscience charge that much. I charge $60, up from $50 the past 3 years. Check in your local Pennysaver or local paper-- call a few tutors to find out the going rate where you are.

This is a GREAT time to be a Math or English tutor if you're in the USA. The new SAT premiered last month, and it includes a writing section. The current Junior class is in panic mode... most of them take the May 7th exam. You could get started next week and I bet you would get some kids before June final exams roll around. Hit a bookstore ASAP and get a Princeton Review and a Barrons review book-- right after you write those letters.

I also have a friend (the wife of the other guy, actually) who helps kids work the kinks out of their college essays-- she's kept pretty busy too!

Let me know if there's anything else you need to know-- and write those letters now!!

Your right, it is possible to make $2,000 plus a month WAH but it won't happen overnight. When you find a legit opportunity, you need to stick with it, and give alot of time and commitment to the opportunity. You will see the results!!

Good luck,
Brenda

OK... I was just chatting with someone about Disciple's Crosses and looking at the banner for the affiliate program. Coincidently enough, the banner claims that you can make $2000 a month. So, I thought of this post. From speaking with people who make the crosses, it is entirely possible for this to work .... ONCE you get used to making the crosses.

HOw about caring for one or 2 other children in your home? You could earn about $500 or more for a full time child in your home.. A playmate or 2 for your kids?? If you get licensed you could care for more & make the $200 you need with just 4 full time kids! It might be something to look into!!

Daycare has made at least 3 of my close friends make more money than their Husbands!!

This isn't something you could do immediately, but if you wanted to invest 6 monthes or so and take the classes (It is a once a week class here in Alabama) Real Estate can make you LOTS of money. If you only sold one or two houses per month, you would be making more than $2000 in commission. I don't have the website handy but you CAN take the classes online from home then you have to pass a state test (which is administered by a testing company. Not on the intermet though, it has to be in person.)
I have my brokers lic. and own my own company. I work out of my house (which is only legal b/c I live in a rural area and I don't have any agents working for me) I DID have an office, a staff, and agents under me. It was alot more income, but it required me to be away from my children. My husband developes subdivisions and builds houses (between 25 and 30 houses a year.) So just saving the money he would be paying another agent to list and sell the houses he builds gives me a GREAT income. (for an example 3 to 6% on a $100,000 house at 30 houses per year is $90000 to $180,000 a year income. Pretty good $ not to have my college degree!!!!! And that doesn't count any other houses I list or sell for people other than my DH. Basically we pay ourselves instead of shelling out that money to another Real Estate company!) I also do all of our book keeping on the houses he builds, coordinate his closings with the banks and atty., ect. and that saves us alot of money (by not having hired help) and we run a cattle farm which is easy for me I just do the registration on the calves or if we sell any. and keep up the books for tax purposes. DH does the work of feeding, loading, and selling. I DO have to run several errands each week. To the banks, ect. But I just take my kiddos with me. I even take them to closing with me. The clients LOVE it. I was worried at first of being professional, but I think it makes them see me as a real person. Not some stuck-up Real Estate Agent in high heels. I have NEVER had one complaint! My children DO know how to behave, they have been going since day one. Jonathan has already been to 3 closings and he is only 7 weeks old! The atty always jokes and says that my daughter has been to more closings than most realestate agents in town. Which is probably true!

Okay I will shut up now. You can make anything work. IF YOU SET YOUR MIND TO IT!

I have found a business that enables me to work at home while being with my children.I make about $500 a month but know many others who make much more-it all depends on how much time you put into it. I provide advertising for a wellness company so I do not sell, stock or have any home parties and it is all done online. Please email me if you want any more info at jenmcsweeny@yahoo.com. Good luck in your search!
