I work from home, I run my own business, an apothecary. I make soaps, lotions, aromatherapy and herbal products. I sell them on line and in brick and mortar stores. Are you looking to create your own business or work for  a company? I know there are ligit wah jobs out there.

I'm just looking for a wah job to get me thru until I go back to work. The time Ill be out of work won't be paid time off and we can't afford to NOT have two incomes. I've tried looking online but there are a bunch just don't know what's real and what's a scam. Any suggestions??

I'm a web and graphic designer.  I haven't done alot since the baby was born yet, I'm still trying to get my feet under me with the baby.

I will go from working full-time in the military to a SAHM in April! I am currently applying for online teaching jobs. I have my graduate degree in environment policy and it seems to be a unique niche that is hiring a lot right now. However, I have seen job listings for online elementary/high school classes, and not necessarily teaching but also grading work online. Seems like a good opportunity and you would get to help kiddos! :)

I know a few artists who are able to make enough money to be their full time job and that can be a WAH option. I definitely know one webcomic artist who's a WAHM who just had her second baby. This would definitely be my dream job, but being able to get lucrative with art is not easy...

 

If you have any craft you're good at and enjoy doing (especially that's safe to do at home/around children), look into that. There are sites like Etsy that you can sell from. For awhile I knit and sold it off of etsy for a bit extra money. I'm not a fast enough knitter to be able to make enough profit to make a career out of it, but it definitely did help to have that little bit of extra income.

 

To the OP- good luck!

My partner wants to go into teaching and also dreams of being a SAHP, but figured the two were mutually exclusive- I'm really glad to hear about those, we'll definitely have to look into them!
