I am a stay at home mom, my husband is a firefighter and are needing some extra income. Does anyone work from home or have any ideas for me? I have read a lot on the internet of "stay at home mom jobs" but I think a lot of them are a scam. If anyone has some suggestions taht would be GREAT!

Thanks
Emily in Texas

Your best bet is if you have some sort of professional skill that you can use at home. In my experience most work at home jobs are either a self-run business or an extension of a person's previous employment and expertise. for example, I work as a non-profit manager and grant writer. I can do some of that from home and so I do. If I needed to be at home full-time I could take in contract grant writing for various non-profits or something related to fundraising or data managment for non-profits or political activities.

Another possibilty is work you could do with your child. I have a friend that cleans houses with a baby in a sling. Or taking in a child or two for childcare.

It is never the wrong time to do the right thing.

You can sell items online thru ebay, Amazon, etc. I think this works best if you have a major interest in the items you are selling, though. I sell books online, and it wouldn't be worth it (i.e. boring!) if I didn't love books so much.

Expecting #2 in May 2013!
