I am with an 18 year old global home-based business in the exploding industry which has over 1 million associates & growing, 70 patents, easy duplicable system in 20 countries including USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand & South Africa, no deliveries, work around your own families commitments, full training, travel holiday incentives to be won, a rewarding business that makes a difference in other people's lives.... As well as your own.
I have been earning a residual monthly income now for over 14 years with this company. I started in this when my 9 week premmie daughter was 2 yrs old, she had many challenges and needed extra help. it was looking like she would be wheel chair bound at age 2. Her life was restricted & so was mine ...and it looked this way for the rest of her life ... & mine. I felt hopeless.
We were attending all sorts of treatments and therapies which cost a lot. A friend told me about some products from a particular company, she started taking them in her yogurt, it made an immense difference to her brain function, memory, balance, mood & cognition in a short space of time. I was elated!
I live in Australia and now have business in 8 countries and my team is continually growing.

You're welcome Kim. Sounds like you have some good experience - too bad it wasn't a better situation. I know sometimes jobs.com and monster.com have work from home offerings, definitely not the majority of what they offer, but there are some to be found. Good luck!

Thanks Lisa. I'll check it out. I was doing independent contractor for a virtual real estate company before and really like it. But I think the lady I was working for is not consistent or organized and wants to micromanage entirely too much. Hope the baby feels better and gives you some relief too! LOL Thanks again!

Kim, one website I've run across (but never used) is www.hiremymom.com. I saw it recommended somewhere and book marked it. I think you're more likely to find employers looking to outsource certain jobs to an independent contractor (that way they don't have to hassle with payroll taxes, etc.) vs. hiring someone to work from home. Working a traditional job (as an employee) from home is a little tricky if you don't already have an established relationship with an employer - there's a bigger trust factor to bridge if they don't know you. As an independent contractor they can hire you to do a specific job i.e. transcribe a recording and pay you $x vs. an hourly rate. Hope this is making sense - long night with a stuffy nosed baby is not helping my coherence :).

Kim, there definitely are. Are you looking to have your own business from home or are you looking to have a job that allows you to work from home (as in you are an employee but can work from home vs. working from an office)?
