The Motherload Of Work-From-Home Jobs

From time to time, I get emails or Facebook messages from someone sharing their struggles looking for a legit work-from-home job. And after reading their story – one I can so relate to, it fuels me to want to be on my A-game. Because their story reminds me of my struggles when I started working from home.

And let me tell yah, that is what drives me to always be willing to help.

My Back Story

I’ve always talked about how my blogging journey got started. But I have never talked about what happened after I quit my corporate America job.

You see, before I started blogging, we were a two-income family and things were great. I was living in my dream house, driving my dream car, and taking my kids shopping every weekend. The hubs had his toys and the kids got what they wanted – as long as they did well in school and stayed out of trouble.

And I easily dropped about $200 a week in groceries and cleaning products. Yes ma’am, money was no object.

Anyway, I tried to hang on to that life for as long as I could but we couldn’t afford those luxuries on one income. Then six months later, the hubs gets hurt at work and he’s out on workman’s comp – which would cover our expenses for about 6 months.

So, we dipped into our emergency stash and when that was gone, next came the savings. I realized then if we didn’t make any changes soon, we were going to go broke quick style.

First, we had no choice but to move back to our old house that we had been renting out. Then we traded in the BMW for a Nissan. And instead of shopping at the mall I was shopping at Target or Walmart with coupons in tow. The kids no longer got what they wanted – they were now getting what they needed.

Yes, the struggle was real!

At one point, I got so desperate for a work-from-home job that I took the first one that was offered to me. And guess what….it was a scam. I felt like a dumb a** for falling for it and even worse because I felt I had let my family down.

When I found my second at-home job, it was also a bust. You guessed it, another scam. You would think I would be able to spot a scam after my first experience, but I did.

I didn’t let it stop me though. I kept on searching until I landed a job as a customer service rep for Cloud 10 now known as Transcom.  In between my job and mom shift, I was still searching for work-from-home jobs and sharing them with friends and family.

That’s when I realized what a rush I got when I was able to help people find remote work. So in 2011, I launched my first blog Work-from-Home Concepts.

Seven Years And Many Changes Later

Since then I’ve gone through all sorts of growth. I started sharing blogging tips and resources with new bloggers. I even started my own business helping bloggers and solopreneurs with web design and social media management. And last year, I launched a styled stock image website.

But even with all the changes I’ve gone through, I still had that passion to help other moms find their own work-from-home job in hopes they’ll have a happy ending to their journey.

Job Search Resources

I used to check job listings from several different sites but that slowly turned into a time consuming task. So now when I  search work-from-home jobs my go-to job search site is Jobs2Careers. They pull job listings from popular job search sites like Career Builder, Monster and ZipRecruiter.

I stay away from jobs posted on Craigslist for a couple of reasons – one, because it could be a scam and two, it’s kind of risky. You never know what could happen if you’re called for a face to face interview and I urge the folks to really do their homework before answering an ad on Craigslist.

This one is important – do not pay for job leads. Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure the jobs on those sites that charge are legitimate and I get that they have to make money so they charge for doing the research.

But if you can’t afford it and you can find them for free, why not do it yourself. All it takes is dedicated time to do the homework and using the right keywords like: work-from-home, work-at-home, remote jobs, telecommute, online jobs, make money from home.
