Need Some Ideas

My daughter was born prematurly so I stayed home with her until she was 3 months old. I went back to my teaching job a month ago and I have not worked a full week yet because she first got an upper respiratory infection and then a GI bug. I feel extremely guilty leaving her day, although she could not have a better sitter. I would like to work from home but I absolutely will not call people up and try to sell them things and I have done the whole multi-level marketing schemes where I make more money if I get people "under" me. I do not want to do that. Are there reputable companies out there that need workers from home? If so who are they?


What can I do next?

I was reading on MSNBC the other day and there is a company called Arise ( is the link. It was one of the very few that they recommended as legitimate work at home companies. I have actually read quite a bit on their website and they do seem very legit. I hope this helps!

I had also thought about working from home but it just seems like your making more money for someone else or having to "throw parties" to try and force people to buy products.And I have to tell you, the most annoying sellers are the one's who stop you while shopping or motion you over to try a sample and then try to script talk you into buying themost pricy product they have.And while I believe in doing what you need to do to support yourself,but geez that is i decided instead of doing that im going back to school.

Here are some links you can try also. I don't know about any of them but I got them from a Yahoo group for Marine wives I'm part of. And we as wives ar always looking for jobs to work at home or part time so we don't have to worry about the kids when the hubby's are away.

If you would like some more let me know and I can give you about 4 or 5 more to check into.

I am in the SAME boat and did a little research and found this
The company has been featured on several TV shows such as MSNBC, TODAY Show, etc and in many magazines. I have not tried it myself but they are listed with the BBB and seem to be reputable. It sorta like contracting yourself out to other businesses. Let me know what you find/think. I too have done the MLM and do not want to sell anything at all!
