Hi everyone! I am so glad to have found COM! I've been reading all of the threads and look forward to reading a LOT more (tomorrow... I am exhausted! LOL). I am a stay-at-home mom with an amazing 22-month old little boy. I threw in the career towel in September after months of being frustrated finding a decent job (one that was worth leaving my son and paying $1,000/month+++ for daycare). I graduated college in December and now I am really bored... really, really bored. I have a BA in business & marketing and have over 10 years working in e-commerce (internet marketing exec, e-commerce business manager, web designer & graphic artists, fast typist, Microsoft certified, and blogger - to name a few of my experiences/past titles).
I have been looking for YEARS for a legit WAHM job. I don't expect to make $5k a week... I don't expect to work an hour a week and make millions a year. I am just looking for something to keep me busy and help earn a few extra bucks in return. I don't want to pay money to make money. I don't have a landline phone (so I think most call center opportunities I won't qualify for...). I have been reading forums, Googling for "the answer", and asking around for years.. Now that I really have extra time... I want to find something for myself to do. I dedicate 90% of my time for my son - but, then there is nap time!! Help ladies... what can I do during nap time (please don't say cook or clean...!!!) :)
Appreciate any advice and thanks for at least reading (and understanding, as I am sure thousands of you feel the same!)
