I'm a stay at home mom, I have a 2 1/2 month old son and money is getting tight. currently my son, fiance and I are all living in a 9x10 room in my parents house. We really want to try and move out and have friends offering to let us move in with them, but he is the only one working between the 2 of us and that isn't enough to move out. Does anyone know of anyway that I can earn money from home??? Help please!!

Jockey Person to Person have been operating in the US since 2005 and Canada since Oct 2008, it really is a ground floor opportunity and you will love it.

Let me know if I can help you,

Hi Destiny,

I am a professional networker. I have a couple of companies I represent but that takes time to build. It sounds like you don't have a lot of time right now.

So, let me refer you to a legit work from home opportunity . They do charge $50 for a background check but they do pay. They do exactly what they say they will. I would suggest checking into network marketing opportunities. Find one that you like and really research it before you get involved. People fail the network marketing industry because they really don't know what to do. People are extremely successful in network marketing because they do know what to do.

Live Ops is not network marketing or mlm. It can help you for now.

I do two things to help earn income.

I keep another child in my house a few days a week. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find several children to care for being that most moms cringe at the thought of daycare. I charge $40/day but I kept her 14 hours when I have her. I have a friend that charges $25/day and keeps 2 kids M-F/8-5. That comes to an extra $250/week for her plus she gets to stay home with her two youngest.

I also have a home based business through a direct sales company. I do my "businessy" stuff while my daughter naps. I do about 1 party a week while my husband watches our daughter. I find that for the amount of work I put in, I get paid quite a lot. I don't want this to be a solicitation so I won't give any more details but if you have questions I would be more than happy to answer them.

Another thing I considered doing was tutoring. I have an education degree and around here tutors go for $20-30/hour (we live in a competetive school system). It just didn't work out because of the little girl I keep. The schedule for her is pretty inconsistent but thats okay. I'm happy to keep her because my daughter gets great enjoyment over having her in our home. Anyway, if you were to tutor, you could tutor one child before school and possibly two after school. If you did that 4 days a week (kids don't want to go to a tutor on Friday afternoons..haha) at $20/hr that would be an extra $240 a week. At $30/hr that would be $360 a week. Where I live parents are desperate for tutors so $30/hr is not unreasonable.

Good luck sweetie! Being a SAHM is wonderful but financially straining at times. I hope these suggestions help or spark another idea for you!
