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.

What does your husband do? Maybe you could be a wingspouse and partner with your husband to focus on one career. It works for me! Maybe it can work for you, too.

Check out my website and blog for info on my very non-traditional role.

Hi! I'm a new blogger, I have a new blog you can find at this URL http://onlinestayathomejobs.com. Your site is very related to mine, I thought it would be beneficial for both of us to do a blogroll link exchange, please let me know if you're interested. E-mail admin@onlinestayathomejobs.com.

I was looking for a way to work from home too, FOREVER! 5 years later I found Wealthy Affiliate that is teaching me how to be an internet marketer. It is a lot of fun and over time can create a passive income. If you're interested go to http://www.we-pay-it-forward.com to see how I got started. Let me know about the link exchange of my blog when you can :)

I love my daughters' preschool! I wanted to let all the Mom's out there whom are stressed out about child care and preschool know that The Goddard School in West Chester is amazing! The teachers who care for the children are educated professionals who love their jobs!
