My Search for a Work from Home Opportunity

I will start with a little background on myself. I spent several years working in an office atmosphere at an executive level. When I started my family, my husband and I decided that I should become a stay at home mom. Now don't get me wrong, I feel that raising a family is an amazing opportunity and incredibly important; but I can't help but wonder where I would be financially had I stayed on that path of corporate success.

Now that my girls are both in school during the day, I have found that I would really love to find a career that fits my needs as both a mom but also as a successful career woman.

To best meet this goal, I decided to make a list of the things that are most important to me.
  • flexible schedule (have to be able to pick the kids up from school and take them to activities)
  • real opportunity for growth and high income
  • ability to work from home office
  • interaction with co-workers; team atmosphere
  • established company / industry
Over the past 10 years I have worked independently as a web designer and online marketer for friends and family (mainly as a hobby). I spend hours online for fun and would love to find a way to combine my love for the internet with my knack for marketing.

My purpose of this blog is to provide insight into my research of the opportunities that are available. Since I have been a stay at home mom for the past 10 years I have heard of so many work at home jobs and I am fully aware of the scams that are out there. I will be looking at jobs that are specific for marketing "something" online. I will be starting my search with www.wahm.com as it seems to be a very diverse resource.
