Hello you couldn't let me know if you find out, I would love to work but have 3 kids, 2 under 5 so I'm a SAHM right now.
But I would sure like to be WAHM (work at home mum) if their is such a thing.
Good luck

There was a thread earlier this week asking the same question - think the title is What could I do? in the Going back to work section - have a look. Sorry too thick to do links

Hi Mum!

When I was a SAHM I did Usborne Books, Phoenix Cards, set up a freelance website design company and sold lots of stuff on Ebay.

Phoenix (cards) was the best, better than Usborne (childrens books). Ebay is a great way of making money too, especially if you're trying to de-clutter.

Good luck with whatever you find!

Wait come back, Where did you get the info on those things. Please let us know.

I do lots AQA (any questions answered) Phoenix cards, mini IQ, and Usana (with ghosty- are you talking to her at the moment?) and am triaing to be a homeopath. Long term plan is to combine the homeopathy usana and mini IQ together to give a very decent salary. This years plan is to earn a proper income from mini-IQ. I have ads in the relevant sectiions but CAT me if you want more details.

Was that for me? If so, with Usborne and Phoenix it's best to get involved locally (for support etc), but here are some websites where you can send off for the info, & they'll hook you into your local team if you're interested. I hope this helps! Jimjams stuff sounded interesting too. I'm about to return to being a SAHM, so I'll check those out myself.

Usborne Books
Phoenix Cards

PS. First time I've done links, so apologies if they don't work.

Do you have secretarial skills? You could do typing work from home/transcription - there are agencies I think.

I work from home but for my old employer and it's very specific so can't really help you on what I do.

Good luck - some good ideas here!
