Why is it so hard to find a legitimate stay at home job? I just want to make some extra money while I am staying home with the kids, I have some free time, but not a huge amount! I just want to be able to earn a little here and there, is that impossible?

it's not a good thing to work from home... especially when you have a family... why? because you you mix tow different things... work and being at home... and that's not good... you shouldn't ever mix those things:)

why? because you could get to preoccupied over the work part and you could arrive there, when you neglect your family;)

I could see that to a point, however, what is the difference between working at home and having a job to go out of the house to? Isnt it easy to neglect your family there too?

Stacy, I have been writing a lot of articles directed to stay home mothers. I will not start telling you how good this business is as you will just have to see for yourself, anyhow its ligit and good money can be earned and the startup cost is about 14 dollars one time fee. www.halifaxhealth.fourpointmoms.com Good luck anyhow,

I've been self-employed through most of my adult life. Both stay-at-home jobs & I owned a retail store for a short time. In my experience sales from home/home-party type jobs are seldom worth your time & investment. They do work for some people, but those people seem to have more hours in a day than the rest of us. If you want some ideas for what would work for you, start by making a list of all of your skills, hobbies, strengths & tools. List everything in this brainstorming session. You have a computer that's a tool. You're articulate that's a skill. Etc. Take your time with the list & come back to it over the course of a few days or more. And then just start associative thinking; you like dogs + you have a car + you live next to a park= light bulb moment perhaps you could walk dogs.See what I mean? Once you have a couple ideas look into them more. Do you need insurance or a license to do this? Is there someone already offering this service in your area- and if there is can you offer a better version or a less expensive version? etc

If there was a way to make enough money onine to not have to work out I think we would all be at home kicking it back or outside with the kids. Sad to say but true.... Now I am new to all of this stuff and firstly I wouldn't pay money to any site as others have mentioned, I'm just too cheap, besides I'm here to make money not give it away.... Also the online sites are all super to make a bit of extra money... I use about 5 sites and so far in the past 4 months I've been doing this ALL together I've made about $130.00.... doesn't seem like much but I'm saving it up in my paypal for xmas shopping....
