Smile New WAHMer-- looking for new opportunities

I consider myself very lucky. When I developed arthritis 2 yrs ago and was forced to quit my "outside" job- I got help from WA State's Dept. of Voc Rehab who set me up with a home office. Because I have years of experience in customer service- I was lucky to get my first WAHM job as a CSR for the largest online retail website. I've been at it for over 3 months. It's been good for a starting point but it's minimum wage and the schedule is very inflexible. My goal is to double my income and have more control over my schedule. I don't know if such a job exists that would be higher pay and allow me to work flexible hours.
Ideally I love doing web research and would love to not have to deal with phone work and the public.
Not sure if I need to be looking for a position as a contractor or VA vs. an employee. So anxious to find something. The sooner I can improve my financial situation, the sooner I can make a move one state away to be closer to family.
So happy to be here and connect with all of you. Looking for all the advice I can get!

Hi Laura and welcome to the forum.

There are many flexible ways to make money online. One for instance is writing because it is often project based instead of being based on specific hours.

You joined a great forum and you will find lots of stuff here.
