Hi
Recently been made redundant
Have 4 children husband works away..
Was wondering as I have a window of opportunity to explore work from home jobs right now , what are other work from home mums doing ??
So far I've looked at franchises and travel agency
I get there is a lot of scams out there An won't be signing up to anything I have not researched the shit out of 1st!
But any pointers on what other mums are doing to create a weekly wage for themselves ? Any advice welcome thankyou

Are there any opportunities for you to do something related to your old job on a self employed or consultancy basis?

If you have admin experience you can become a virtual assistant smile

Hi guys
Thanks for reply
I'm a qualified finance assistant and I hated it lol spent to many years in a bank just wasn't a happy place for me personally. To uptight. But admin or there abouts looks good must look into virtual assistant, I see another company called arise solutions doing admin / call centre work from home to if it's any help to any one. Will keep searching , and going to try arise see what there about
Thanks

Arise is a franchise that will cost you a lot to buy into so just beware. I set up as a virtual assistant six months ago and love it!

Hi Claire
Well done glad your enjoying it.
Is it hard to set up ?
What's the pros and cons if you don't mind me asking ?
Your right about arise, I looked further into it and saw the catch and decided against it at the last min, once I had read the small print and read the reviews. Lol ...
A few people have said virtual
Assistant, but I was unsure it would be steady , or what the pros and cons was, any advice welcome ,thanks ever so much

There are costs involved to start up and it's not easy but you can be successful. I make £1500 a month working part time. I created a guide for new VAs but last time I put a link on this site my account got blocked so look for me on Facebook and you'll see my business page, lol!

Hi Claire
Will do thankyou,
I don't mind investing, if it pays an helps me stay at home, as I have an office pc ect already in the house. As my husband used to work from home. Now he's on the road again and loves it.
Thanks

@ClaireVAWakefield have looked into becoming a VA myself previously but was so difficult to find info, it's a shame your account was blocked when you put a link up your guide!

Do not send money to anyone, Bubblegum. Especially not someone touting for business who has put together some "guide" online. All that information is out there, free of charge.

And to be very blunt - are you sure virtual assistant jobs would be right for you? Spelling and grammar is critically important for this type of role. Try sites like People Per Hour, Upwork, Fiver.
