If you’re interested in working from home, so you can spend more time with your kids and save on daycare fees and commuting expenses, like gas, etc., you need to be persistent.

As a single mom, who has worked almost completely from home, for the past 10 years, I can tell you it is possible–and it’s possible to get a really good job, too.

Looking for a work-at-home job can be tough, espeically if you’re new to it. Like with any industry, there are always scammers looking to get over on unsuspecting people.

If it sounds too good to be true–for instance, a lot of money for a little bit of work–it probably is, and you should avoid it like the plague.

Like with anything that you really want, you need to develop a plan and be determined to get a work-from home job.

Single Mothers: Need Money for College?

I was going through some paperwork the other day, when I got a revelation: In the last five years and, especially, the last three years, I have come a long, long way financially.

As a single mother, I have had more than my fair share of financial struggles–can I get an Amen?

As I was sorting this paperwork, I found my earnings statement from the social security administration, dating back to my first job in 1986.  Basically, it’s a report of your financial earnings and what you should receive from the SSA at retirement age (don’t even get me started…LOL).

Anyhow, I noticed that after getting some certifications and B.A. degree, my income increased more than 3 x from what it was for most of my career.  My last increase was over $21K.  Yes, for me, that piece of paper is worth its weight in gold.  And, sometimes, I don’t think it matters what your degree is in, just that you have one.  For instance, I have an English degree, but I work in a technical field, but without that degree and certifications, I don’t think that I would have qualified for my current position.

Want to significantly improve the quality of life for you and your child(ren)? The single best way to change your quality of life is to increase your earning power—and that means getting new skills.

As a single mother, college is not always an option. Before I was pregnant with my son, I received an A.A. degree in Criminal Justice; however, after my son was born, I decided that the criminal justice field was not for me. But because I was a single mother of a new baby with medical problems, I didn’t have the time, money or support system to attend a traditional college.

What was I to do?

First, I did some research to find a single-mother friendly career and training program that I would enjoy and, more importantly, one that fit my tight financial situation.  Because I had worked in a doctor’s office, I decided on medical transcription. I then enrolled in medical transcription training through a distance learning program, which, at the time, turned out to be the best educational decision I could have made.
