I have two beautiful daughters and they both need my attention. In the past I always have been working, going to school or just being too tired to give them more attention. Now I want to enjoy both benefits the stay at home mom and the working mom. I do have a wealth of experience in customer service, telemarketing, and medical billing and coding. I know that I can do it and I know there are legitimate work at home jobs out there. I have been laid off and my unemployment has run out, I have retired all other income that I have. I live in Michigan where the employment rate is at an all time low. As of now I have little or no start up fees for the at home companies that I have researched, and I am asking for any information that anyone should have so that I can become financially independent, while enjoying my family at the same time Please respond with any information.
You might also consider joining the professional network, LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com ) and participating in some of the working mom or SAHM groups on that site -- as another way to get suggestions from other moms or experts with ideas for you.
In 2012, almost 25 percent of children lived with just their mothers, while 4 percent lived with only their dads, according to ChildStats.gov. In single-parent households, it is very difficult to balance the need to work and to be present in the daily lives of your children. Unless you have a passive income source like investments, you may be able to find a way to work from home. This can provide the schedule flexibility and income you need to live.
