Default Want to work from home to take care of mom, help me please!

Hello All,

My name is Alessia and I would love to work from home. A year ago, my mom had a stroke that left her disabled, requiring a lot of therapy and she has to have someone at home with her all of the time. I love taking care of my mom, but I am not doing this as I should at this time because I have a 9-5 job. I am struggling just to get her to doctor appointments and it breaks my heart.

My goal would be to work from home in order to havr the flexibility to care for. I do not know how to start and I am so fraid of scams. Right now just finding a night opportunity to supplment my current income would be great, and I can do fulltime from home work if I am lucky in the future.

I just wanted to introduce myself, if you have any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated


Regards,

Alessia

Sorry for your sorrow but you are a great daughter!

There are many ways to generate income while working fulltime.

Check out the Advertise Your Business folder for a ton of ideas.

Default I understand your dilemma

I am the sole caregiver for my 95 year old mother. I applaud your willingness to take on that responsibility.

I work from home as a distributor for a health, wellness and weight management company and I do some freelance writing. I have put my mother on some of the products and it has helped her tremendously.

If you would like more info or just to chat about coping, feel free to contact me. My company is also doing a big update call tonight which might help you determine if its something that is of interest to you. If you like I can PM the info.

I sent you a PM.

The bottom line is look around at what everyone has to offer and decide what it is you want to do... MLM, answering calls at home, web search rater, transcriptions, etc... Do your research and ask asmany questions as you like! If you decide to do MLM sales find a product and company that you really like & believe in - that will make all the difference in your success.
