I only have three weeks left of my maternity leave and my commute to work is an hour and fifteen minutes. I also worry about driving to work right when the winter season is around the corner. I would really like to work closer to home, but jobs are pretty scarce. I have been looking into stay at home jobs and have had little success. If anyone has any suggestions or advice I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Laura, if you are looking at wanting to do something that you can stay home and have a little less stress within the budget you can contact me as I sell Botanical Wraps that you put on and withing 45mins will loose INCHES and this is Not Water LOSS as you have to drink water to FLUSH the TOXINS away.. I have ladies banging down my door as this continues to target the areas that are hard to work on in the Gym & within 45mins you have lost INCHES.. An amazing Company & our Rewards are the best I have been involved with. A client of mine lost 4 Inches in 45mins & loved it I it continues to work for 72hrs. This is so light and you dont even know you have it & the Natural Ingredients rejuvenate the appearance of your skin & reduces stretch marks, YEP thats right.. This also helps you loose inches in 45mins & has help me as I had 2 c-sections and have lost 2.5 inches in 45mins from there where I got told it would cost me $6,000 to remove as nothing else would help till i found this.. You have to drink water as well as it flushes the toxins from you body and makes you have more energy.. ;) All natural so email me as this is something lots of ladies are banging down my door to get as it works and stays off... My email is triple_special @ msn..com or check the website www.gorgeous.itworks.net Look forward to hearing from you and I can answer all your questions.. Your gonna love it.. Regards MIchelle

I actually thought the same thing when I was pregnant and I decided to try child care. I'm not licensed but I have a lot of experience. I made an ad on Craigslist and voila! I'm a nanny for an amazing two year old. I bring my 6 month old with as well and we've been here almost her entire life. And my daughter and I and the other family I nanny for both benefit from it. They get a nice priced sitter while I don't need to spend anything on child care centers. It is easy and you can even find places close to home.

Try my website. www.sendoutcards.com/sendmyfreecard. This is an online business, no inventory- at all. It's your own business, so you can determine when or how often you work- but it's not really work. You will be able to try it for free, then watch a short video that explains the business. It's an amazing opportunity, it's fun, and best of all, it's done online. It's the best thing I've ever come across. My phone number is on the website if you have any questions! If it's not for you, that's ok to- I wish you the best of luck! - Melissa

Hi Laura, as a busy mom of 4 kids ages 2, 3, 5 & 5 I have 0 time. Somehow, in less than one year, I managed to earn enough to get all of my personal and household products for free, get extra things for myself and take my family of 6 to Florida for a 2 week vacation. Could I make more? Sure, a lot more and I will, in time. But I must say that I am thrilled with what I have achiveved from putting almost nothing into it. I distribute for the #1 natural nutrition company in North America and I would love to tell you more about it if you'd like. All the best in your search! -Kimberly

you have my sympathy this is one of the biggest problems for us: stay home / work.

when mine were really little i took part time jobs in the evening or weekend when my partner could stay with them not in same pay scale but it got me out and brought in some money. have you thought about changin career, if you like kids childminding isnt too bad to get into and you get paid for being at home and playing with the kids!

My fiance and I are involved in an amazing business that we are doing extremely well at. He has been in business and marketing for 30 years and has never seen anything like this. Have a look at his website johncollins@acnrep.com. Click on the opportunity and watch the first two videos when you have about 30 minutes to yourself. I'd love to hear back from you with your opinion and feedback. Take care.

You could also do little things like selling things on Ebay. You'd be surprised at how much of the stuff around your house would go for on ebay.

You can check out so many groups on this site with "work at home" as the title. There are tons of home business opportunites out there. Hardly any home "jobs". Either way, a little of both is available on many groups on this site. Just weed through them and ask questions.

Here is my home business site : http://www.freedomathometeam.com/sherrym... I am with Ameriplan® we are a health benefits company. We help people that get denied coverage, or just can't afford it. Our plans are an affordable alternative to insurance, and allow one to still go to a doctor, dentist chiropractor, etc, but instead of paying full price, they get a huge discount.

Network Marketing is really good, My first try I didn't like, I was feeling guilty about people losing their money instead of making money. At that time I didn't know any better about what to look for in a network marketing. I told myself not to get involved with any network marketing at all. Then an associate of mine introduced me to GWT. I found my home, this one allowed me to quit my job and I am doing something that I am so passionate about which is helping other people succeed. There's a lot of company's out there in network marketing.You just have to check really well if it is what you want.Just be very very careful, a lot of network marketing out there are very stressful. you don't really want that especially you have a new baby.

Hi Laura,



If you are also open to home business opportunities, I may have something that would be great for you! Right now is the perfect time also because till the end of November you can join for $1 and even that is refundable within 120 days if you decide it isn't right for you afterall. I have been a member of an online health and wellness company now for over 5 years and I not only love their products (they don't contain any harmful ingredients so I don't have to worry about accidental poisonings and they cost less per use so they save me money) but I love what our company stands for because of all the help they have given to so many people and all the help they provide for people who want to earn income at home. We don't have to do deliveries, take orders or payments and we don't have to stock inventory in our homes. Basically we are like the people who work at Sam's or Costco. We help people activate their accounts and answer questions about the membership and products. You can completely work around the schedule you have with your family and you can make as little or as much as you want to depending on the time you put in. You can also get paid weekly if you want to depending on how much effort you put in.



If this sounds like something you would be interested in learning more about the company and the compensation plan for the business side of it or even just gettting some safer less expensive products for your home, I will be glad to give you all the information so you can decide if this is something that would be right for you as well.



Feel free to give me a call at: 608-524-3441 or request information from one of my websites: www.workathomeunited.com/mybiz or www.livetotalwellness.com/mybiz and I will be glad to give you a call at one of your most convenient times.



Good luck in your search and I hope to be talking with you soon :)

There is a site named "LIveOps.com" where you take in calls for infomercials. It only cost $50 for a background check, also you have to have a land line phone. I think this would be ideal for you, especially since the shifts are in 30 minute increments, which will allow you to get in as much or less time as possible. Give it a try - I hope it works out for you. Enjoy motherhood!!!!!
