Hello, I am new here and wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself, I am a mother with a large family that has been subjected to downsizing and business closures in my recent employments . I am seeking legitimate honest employment or opportunity that I can be proud of and provide for my children with, I have researched many opportunities and have found most of them require considerable upfront, which being unemployed with family don't have , or they are so complex that I am unclear as to what the actual product or service is that they are offering or it is almost impossible to ever reach a paycheck. I am seeking information on legitmate ways to make money that do not involve reading emails - tried that and all I got was alot of junk mail and had to change my email account. Also I have not had any such luck with surveys either . Other than this what careers have you pursued or know of out there that is minimal to no start up and actually work to provide an income. My hobbies include taking pictures , writing poetry, spending time with my kids , geneolgy and enjoying nature. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I continue on my research to be able to feel confident enough in an business or work at home job that I can do it with kids in tow. I have never really worked from home before except the occasional childcare in between jobs in the past, but life is changing the kids are growing and way too many businesses in my area has closed or downsized. Suggestions Please. Thank-you Sincerely for any help that is actually meant to help me.
