I currently lost my job and have again began the search to find work that I can do from home. I know about the .01 cent emails etc. But I need something I can do to earn a half way livable income. Anyone have any suggestions?

What job skills do you have that can translate into something you can make money from home with? What about freelance, independent contractor? You could look into virtual assisting. Look at what skills you have and what you're good at and use that as a foundation.

I have always worked in an office doing clerical along with being the VP of a mortgage company at one time. But when I try to find something along that line, I end up with site after site of leads the I end up going in circles with. Any advice?

I don't know if it's helpful but I just found these sites http://www.revanetwork.com http://www.virtualcas.com/ Also check out www.genuinejobs.com they have a lot of freelance jobs and another good site is www.whydowork.com They have a list of employers who hire from home such as customer service, transcription, data entry. Just remember never to go for a site that asks you to pay any money for a job.

hi stacey! well, i believe your best bet would be to go job hunting again. or don't you want to work in companies anymore? you can do freelance jobs or be entrepreneurial if you want. i am doing freelance creative jobs and on the side, i do these internet stuff like mylot, hits4pay, clixsense, etc. but i know, these can feed a family, so i just consider these my piggy bank. if you want to go back to work, then hit the classifieds or the internet. i am sure that there are many opportunities waiting for you. just be patient and diligent. take care and merry christmas! :-)

I fully understand your situation. This point .01 cent emails will take you months or even years to earn a livable income. For the meantime you may try this new survey program that might be of help. To be honest with you I have not reach the payout yet but its worth a try. It would only take less than 5 minutes to register and you will be paid 6usd, each survey will only take you less than 4 minutes and you will received 4-10usd per submission. here is the link: http://www.AWSurveys.com/HomeMain.cfm?RefID=JPSO138 Goodluck!
