I have a daughter thats handicapped and she has reached the age she can no longer go to school, so her schedule is going to get complicated and that is going to make it really hard for me to continue in my present job. I desperately need to find a way to make money from home or at least a business I can run from home and control my schedule. I know there is tons of people advertising about money making schemes to do from home, but I would love to hear from real people about things that have worked for them, or even advice on what to stay away from.

Dear TonnaB, I will pray for you and your daughter. at the moment I am also looking for something that is legit to work from home. If I come across anything I will send you a message. I did find a website that seemed to check out with the BBB, it´s www.homeworkers.org, and I believe it´s international. Of course there´s a sign up fee, but you can choose how long for the service so it´s different fees. I´m still looking into it. Let me know if you think it´s worth while

Welcome to mylot Tonna! I work at home part time for a company called West, I process inbound calls for a shop at home network and also for a mobile phone service. The only reason I do it part time is because I have a "day job" that I make a higher wage at. But I make minimum wage for my state (7.75/hour) regardless of if I get any calls routed to me or not. This has been a lifesaver for my family, not only because we need extra money, but also because they have a self scheduling system that allows me to work when it's convenient for me. I've been working for them for a year, there was no start up, and the checks come bi weekly like clockwork. The only problem I have ever had is it took a month after I filled out the app and got accepted to get rolling. If you want more info send me a message, or search West at a site like www.wahm.com. Good luck!!

how about setting up a small store in your house, in front of your house, sell something you are good at, like, sell home baked cakes, sell it per slice. Cake mix are available, you can buy them and just follow instructions on how to make them then sell it. Or plant vegetables then sell them when harvest time. Or sell something online. There are lots of stuffs you can do. I make bracelets, which I sell to friends. Now I am out of school, I dont have a job, so I plan to put up an online store.

That is a a great idea and something I have thought of often but I live in the country so not a good place to expect customers to drive. Maybe i could do an online store though. Thanks for the advice.
