    Hi there!
    I'm so glad i found this forum! Well I'm a mother of 3 and trying to WAH. My problem is that my english is not perfect and I'm not comfortable talking on the phone. My writing skill is not the best either. Any suggestions what I could do?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Hello Kindacute81

    Welcome! If you definitely don't want to use the phone, you can still work from home online. Even though you feel your writing skills aren't up to scratch, they may not be as bad as you think.

    Use a spell checker and that will help tremendously. If you download Firefox as your browser you can automatically have the spell checker and grammar checker activated so that you are constantly being shown if you've made a mistake.

    My English isn't perfect either, particularly when I get to typing rapidly. [​IMG] Spellchecker has saved me embarrassment on many occasions. Regardless, people don't always expect you to be absolutely perfect, just pretty good. [​IMG]

    Working at home online takes a bit of time and effort upfront to get the ball rolling, but it's worth it in the long run if you can stick it out and stay focused.

    Wishing you all the best as you decide what might be right for you.

    Welcome. I don't think I have seen a sales page yet that did not have typos. Makes me feel not so bad, especially when they are supposed to be the proffesionals. I find that if I let someone else proof my stuff it helps, they catch things I miss.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome!!! [​IMG]

    When i said my english isn't perfect, i didn't mean my spelling. I meant like grammar and my vocabulary.

    Thanks anyway [​IMG]

    Don't be too critical of yourself - your grammar sounds fine to me so far...[​IMG]

    Your grammar does not have to be perfect to WAH. I don't know how many times I've seen errors (grammar and spelling) on sales pages and in articles. You could always try your hand at freelance writing. You won't get paid much, but something's always better than nothing right? There are other ways to make money online, but if you're looking for a work-at-home job with a stable income, most of them do require you to work on the phone.

    Just from reading your posts on this thread, it seems to me that your English is fine--in all ways. I've found that a lot of people whose native tongue isn't English tend to underestimate their skill; you may be one of them. At any rate, I admire the courage you must have summoned to post here. That speaks well for you, and really emphasizes that you will probably be successful in your quest.

    I wish you much success!
