Default Back to WAHM and needing opinions

Well let me first start of by saying hello,
I am new to the WAHM community but not new to working from home. I worked for a client for about 5 years until they went bankrupt which was no fault of their own, basically they got screwed over by someone...but long story short I am back in the telecommute search.

I am a multitasker so customer service,graphic design,web design,SEO, busniess development,tech support, va (was doing this before va was even called va) lol

In the long run just looking for opinions on where to start I have tried Odesk,freelancer,eleance none of those in which I truly care for (to many wanabe employers that want to underpay)

Many of these telecommute jobs require land-line I do use a voip, which some employers do not mind. So any suggestions, opinions or help would be greatly appreciated

You've got a lot of great skills. And there are a lot of customer service realted positions posted here.

I'd recommend applying for anything and everything that you are qualified to do. If an employer offers you a job, it might be worth investing in a land line. And if you're hired as a contractor and use that landline for just your job, you can write it off as a business/job expense.

Good luck.

Thanks for the advice, and I am sure if a employer truly needs a land line I would invest. Although it seems as if I have numerous skills with todays' job market and economy being as it is makes it extremely hard. Just looking for a break which hopefully will happen sooner or later.

I agree with danasurvey..apply to everything. The other advice I would give...When you find something ..don't limit yourself to just one job. Many WAHMs work two or three jobs at once.Also, one way to brush up on todays skills and add to your work from home resume is work task on MTurk and Fiver and places like that. They don't pay very much ,but some of the tasks will look good on your resume.-)
