Hi,
I am new on here & my reason for coming on here is to find a legit stay at home job. My husband will be deploying to Iraq in May & we don't have any family here so it will be best for me to be able to work from home & be able to care of our 2 year old. Does anyone know of any legit stay at home jobs?

Selecting a type of at-home job and niche are just a start. You’ll want to visit another Web site like the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) site to help you “grow and succeed.” There you will find local resources, services and tools to make sure you enjoy working from home for many years to come. SBA’s most notable assistance to military families specifically is their Patriot Express Loan. You can apply for this loan to establish your new business idea or expand on a small business you may have already started. If you’re in the military community—National Guard, Spouse, Veteran—you are eligible to apply.
They applaud our military and with the loan will come many resources, counseling and training to ensure your success. You can get your great start here with their self-assessment. Good luck!

There is always FCC training in your home if you love kids http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gifDoesn't take much to get certified and you can work in your own home and I think you can only do 4 kids at a time, or less...whatever you can handle. I had an FCC provider while waiting for a CDC spot to open up, she charged $90 a week. Something to think about http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gifAnd of course All the SAHM's I know here on post do alot of Direct Sales companies, so you can look into that also. It's a good way to meet people too.


Good luck! And good luck on the deployment. My hubby will be right behind your hubby a few months from then. UGH!
