My husband and I are working on an interesting business project. We really could use a business associate to meet some simply business requirements. This may or may not be for you but if you're available for a 30 minute overview Monday 3/5/07 @ 7:30 pm please let me know. We can do this over the phone.
Give me a call @ ###-###-####.

Awhile back someone posted this website for a customer service job from home. I know I saw something about this on TV one time. There are a bunch of companies that allow you do take customer service calls for them from your home.
Here is one of them:
If I find the other ones I will post them.

Wow! Well, I would take one issue at a time. You have to crawl before you walk.
Can you find a way to make money at home? Maybe babysitting? Or maybe a job at a daycare center? Temporary until you can sock some money away or find something else that you really like.
Car and apartment - can come after some time. If you are on a timetable (parents give you a deadline), can you get a roommate? Another single mom who has similar needs (childcare and transportation issues).
It's alot easier to work in tandem with someone else than trying to do it all by yourself.

I experience the same situtation that you are facing. I was expecting my second child when I left my husband and had a daughter that was 15 months old at the time. I had no money, no job and I was living with my parents. While I was pregenant I look for a job everyday on the internet. I would talk to other parents when I would go for my prenatal visit. Through them I learned about Child Care assistance, Department of Human services that offer free child care while you enroll in job training programs. Today My children are age 3 and 2 I'm working full-time and they are enrolled in daycare. I went from receiving food stamps and a medical card to full-time job with benefits. Remember there's always light and the end of tunnel. Stay encourage.

I found myself in the same position 1 year ago and am still in the same spot. My best advice is to accept that it will take time and not get discouraged. I truly thought that I would be on my own in a few months, but for the same reasons you are experiencing, I am still with my parents. I took out a loan and got through a medical assisting program, only to find that there aren't any part-time positions so that I can work and still take care of my daughter. Without money to pay for care, it is very difficult to get a full-time job so that you can make money- quite the "Catch-22", huh. Just do the best you can and be as upbeat and positive as possible for your son to see.

where do you live? I am sure your parents dont mind if you stay with them to get on your feet. Is your mom at home? or working? She can help watch your son, while you apply for jobs. You can then be searching for child care homes that have any openings. If your in my area, I would love to help you in this catagory.
Baby steps and take one day at a time. You and your son will be just fine.

I am so sorry to hear of your sad news. That has got to be a very dificult situation (all the way around)
Well- I work full time and I have a part time job- I am an advisor for lia sophia jewelry part time- I do it on weekends and weeknights. Considering you have nobody to watch your son during the day this could work to your advantage. I make between $100-$300 per show. I try and do 2-3 per week so my weekly paychecks are pretty decent. Here is my website. Feel free to look it over and if you have any questions please feel free to call me. www.liasophia.com/jackiehugelier The start up cost is $149. With that you get over $1000 in jewelry and supplies, enough to start you off with at least 6-10 shows. The start up can be put on a credit card and I promise that you will pay it back with your first show and have it paid before you even get the bill in your hand- The average show is $705.00. So if you meet the avg. your first check would be $211.00- I hope this information helps you and I wish you the very best of luck!
