Default Looking to be a WAHM

Hello everyone. I currently work full time, out of home, but have always wanted to work from home. I didnít take working from home seriously until recently. I am pregnant now, and getting up getting dressed, getting my son dressed and then having to go to work every day, at a very stressful job for 8 LONG hours has become very uncomfortable. I would love to work from the comfort of my own home, but I am not sure where to start, and afraid that it will be harder to find a WAHJ and I want out of this situation ASAP. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good companies to start applying to that hire often. I have administration experience. I am good with data entry, customer service, reports, scheduling, and office support. I just need a chance to get started, and to make decent money. Any suggestions?

Talking

Welcome!

I am almost in the same place except for being the pregnant mom. I too work in an admin job full time and it sucks! I have soooooo much stress. I do plan on talking to someone about the ameriplan job. I have never worked from home either but I am going to try it. Good luck to you!!!

Also, look in the job folders like telecommuting....data entry...and so on. Dont EVER pay to work from home though!!! Most likely it will be a scam!

Welcome to the forum!

If looking for a home based business you can also check out the "Advertise your Business" folder.

Amy gave you a great place to start looking.

Many positions listed in that folder are customer service related.

Welcome to the forum lspears and good luck.

The others mentioned what I would suggest, but I just wanted to welcome you to the forums. I'm sure you'll find what's right for you.

If you're a really good typist you can check the transcription folder too.

Best of luck in your search.

What you are "good with" may not always be the way to make the money you desire and deserve.
Keep your mind open to new opportunities !

You never know what's "out there" that may ROCK your world!!

Best!
