Ive been looking for a while for work I can do from home over the computer or by phone but everything ive found so far requires you to pay money and has reviews that make me skeptical it’s a scam. I don’t want to go back to school for 4 years (although if you love your job and have a lot of flexibility I would still be interested to hear what you do/what your degree is) but could do an AA or program, but I’m hesitant to persue schooling and pay for it without being sure I could make it work from home because I would like to have kids soon and be able to work from home and be home with them.
Any bees have a job they do from home? Customer service? Virtual assistant?
Supposedly in this day and age lots of companies that do lots of telecommuting but I’m having trouble finding any that are legit.

I am a web designer from home. I have been working from home since 2001 before I became pregnant with my first child. I also run a large Virtual Assistant community/marketplace. The gals there list their services/content for sale & bloggers buy from them. I also run the secret facebook group for this. We have over 4k virtual assistants all working from home. I love what I do and would have it no other way.

I do marketing consulting. I work from home about 90% of the time though so not totally at home.

I think you should get in with a company that has those capabilities, then see if they would let you work from home when you do eventually have kids.

I’m same as you. I have a young son who has autism, so I stay home with him right now. I really could use a job working from home to help bring in some extra money.

I am a 3D Texture artist, currently I work full time at Nickelodeon but I’ve freelanced from home many times before my current job. That wasn’t for me though, I really didn’t like it! Specially when everything was over the internet. I need to interact with other people, get out, and also at home I get distracted so easily. Since it was freelance it was impossible to get benefits as well, or a stable job. If you can find a full time job from home, that would be awesome though! I wanted to have kids as well but have been changing my mind. The longer I spend time with kids, the less I want them! haha If I still do have kids though, my husband will be the one staying at home, not me hehehe 🙂

I work from home as a computer developer/programmer and consultant. I LOVE my job and I love that I have the flexibility to be anywhere I want while I work. I have a degree in Computer Information Systems with my concentration in Information Security. I started with the company I’m with as a co-op/internship for my degree, got hired on after, and I worked a year in the office. Then, Fiance and I planned a move and I approached my company with a proposal that I stay on with the company telecommuting. I prepared pretty well for that meeting, and I reminded them of the fact that they had spent so much time and energy in training me. It also helped that I’m working on an account for one of their biggest clients. To my pleasant surprise, they accepted and even shipped a nice extra monitor to my new address once I was all moved in!
I love my job, and I love that I have the convenience of getting housework done throughout the day. I also love that when Fiance and I decide to have children, I’ll be able to make it work a lot more easily. This is my dream situation 😀

You could do at home customer service for sites like HSN.com and QVC.

Where do you live? My company has a few totally virtual contact centers (customer service) but you still have to live in certain areas.

I have a friend who does sales for a small start-up from home. She loves it! She basically calls companies to offer them services. Most often, they are quite interested, so it’s not one of harassing-people deals. I have another friend who taught English online (I think over Skype?) for extra cash. It didn’t pay very much but she enjoyed it. The job was basically just having conversations and correcting Japanese students. She said the hours were weird though because of the time change.
I work from home a lot. I’m in HR and I usually only go in when I feel the need to make an appearance, and when I have to conduct interviews or attend meetings. In summer I go almost everyday but in winter only 1-3 times per week. The job is super flexible and I determine my own schedule. I negotiated this arrangement, and it’s only possible now because I have assistants. Another big part of that is that my employer is a very laid-back non-profit organisation.
Good luck finding something!

My best recommendation is to research ocmpanies in your area that have work from home capabilities. You may need to do a few months in the office to build up your ground work and then be able to start working from home.

lol, nothing wrong with that! I’ve considered not having kids cuz I’m a basket case when I’m too stressed, or just going for a stressful job and having a SAH hubby 🙂 but luckily my Fiance is 100% on board with my staying home. I just hate the idea of him being the only one bringing in money for things and I miss shopping!

thank you, I tried HSN and you had to live in the area of one of their offices which were all in the Southeast…. But I will have to check QVC
