How to work from home?

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew how I could get into working from home? I'm currently 23 weeks pregnant with my first, and whilst I'd be happy to work, I don't think that anyone will employ me because I'm pregnant ( I know that's discrimination but I'm sure they'd use another reason). I'm currently doing a Level 3 NVQ from home to fill up my time, but I'm still bored a lot and would love to earn some money before DD arrives. I have retail experience, as we'll as being a supervisor for six weeks in a shop, if that's of any relevance.

If anyone knows of any good websites or companies that I could look at, then please let me know your recommendations smile

Many thanks smile

It might be worth posting on the Chat thread as it gets much more traffic...

Or see this thread for some ideas...

Are there ANY legitimate 'work from home' opportunities?

Well I'd ignore that^ hmmsmile

I think the best, most sustainable WFHing is taking your existing skills and translating them into a freelance or remote working pattern.

How about customer service call handling? If you were determined you might be in with a chance of tracking down an opportunity. It depends if you actually intend to actively care for the baby while you work I suppose.

What's your NVQ in?

I started a home salon, i do nails and threading/waxing. You have an initial outlay for courses and stock, however once up and running you choose the hours. There is a book called "How to Create a Home Beauty Salon". It guided me through the whole setup.
Good luck in whatever you find.
