Work from home?

I am looking to work from home due to the new baby and our other daughter needing help with schoolwork, etc. I see all these ads for work from home. Do you guys know of any that are legit. Ones where I don't have to send in $350 and wait for them to send me paperwork or software.
I'm experienced mainly in A/P but can do just about all office work. Thanks in advance.

Laura

Thanks for the well wishes. My current employer is going to let me work from home for a little bit after having the baby, but I'd like to do it permanently.

go above and beyond and really do an awesome job while you're at home, and then write up a little proposal on why you think it would be best if you can continue to work from home. if they still don't bite, offer to take a pay cut that would put you at the same take-home after paying for fuel and parking

If you've got a teaching degree of some sort you can go to www.tutor.com and tutor kids from home over the internet.

That's a good thought. They told me that I can take 1-2 months off and work from home. My boss said to just call and let her know when I'm ready to come back. I guess I can just stretch it out as long as possible. I'll probably be aching to go back after spending that long with the kids.

Check out Live Ops. It's an at-home call center job where you answer the phone and take orders for everything from knife sets and exercise crap to Sears warranty repair and Shop NBC - you name it. You need a land line phone number and a decent Internet connection and computer. Set your own hours and schedule. It's all scripted and automated so it's pretty straight-forward/easy.

If you Google Live Ops you'll find them. Good luck.

Thanks. I'm not really a big call center fan, but I've gotta do some kind of work. I'll look into it. Thanks!

Medical paperwork processing, transcriing charts etc. pays well. My aunt has been doing this from home for ages. Now that my uncle has retired from the school system, he helps out and htey are doing even better than before. Not sure how to get in on it, but you might want to do some investigation.

PM "Skidmark" on here. He works from home, but I'm not exactly sure what he does, or if there's a way to get in on it.

Yep - a good point in working from home is that they don't have to pay for your space that you occupy at the office.

Having a dedicated internet line to your cube is $$$ monthly
