Real Work-At-Home Job Posting


Real Work-At-Home Job Posting

Working_MomOkay, so for most of my career, I have managed to work at home– including now, where I have an above average salary, complete with full benefits. So, I always get asked how do I find these jobs?  The answer is quite simple, when you think about it.

I’m a firm believer that, most of the time, you really only find what you’re looking for. Therefore, I only look for opportunities that fit my single-mother lifestyle.  And I make sure that I choose skill sets that support working from home.  After all, there are certain skills that lend themselves to work-from-home opportunities and some that don’t.  A public relations writer, for instance, can work from home, whereas a nurse usually can’t.

Therefore, I only look for opportunities that fit my single-mother lifestyle

Recently, I have been offered some really great positions, both in responsibilities and pay, but I have had to turn them down because the hours weren’t conducive to me being a hands-on mother.  Even now, when my 16-year-old son is a senior in high school and as I’m quickly approaching the empty nester lifestyle, I still choose to work from home.  I love the flexibility of working from home. It allows me to hold down my household responsibilities and provide for my son at the same time. Plus, whenever there’s a school function, I have the flexibility of attending without too much conflict or hassle. Same thing for doctor’s appointments and what nots. For me, working at home is the best option for single mothers.

And, I want you to enjoy the experience of providing for you and your children from the comfort of home, too.

So, periodically, I will be posting real work-from-home opportunities. Here are the first ones:

Update 10/19/09: The Roxanne Shante Lied About Ph.D.>>Read Full Story Here>>

This has got to be one of the best single mom revenge stories that I have heard in a long time.

Remember the 14-year-old rapper, “Roxanne Shante,” famous for her battle rap, “Roxanne’s Revenge” answering to UTFO’s “Roxanne, Roxanne.”

Watch the video below to jog your memory:

The Real Roxanne’s answer rap:

Here’s “Roxanne Shante’s” answer:

“This is a story that needs to be told,” Shante said. “I’m an example that you can be a teenage mom, come from the projects, and be raised by a single parent, and you can still come out of it a doctor.” Roxanne Shante

Well, not only did she get her revenge on UTFO, the former rapper, who was also a young single mother, got revenge on her label, Warner Brother’s Records for not honoring their committment to pay for her education in full.   In the end, Warner Brother’s paid for her education (she earned a Ph.D) at a total cost of $217,o0o!  Now, that’s single mama revenge at its finest.
