How Much Money Do You Need To Make?

Kathleen Lewis

After many years of working for someone else, I was faced with the opportunity of doing my own thing. I grabbed the chance to develop my skills and share my knowledge in the areas of working at home and finding online work.

    I am the primary care giver for my dad and am unable to work outside the home. He has been paying me, just enough to pay the bills I have of my own, but on his SSI, it is getting harder and harder to make ends meet for both of us. I am going to try and get him on Medicaid, in the hopes they will pay me for living here and caring for him, at least something to help take some of the burden off of him. I know that if we had to pay some one else to come in and do the same things, they would be getting weekly what I get a month. I don’t know that I have any skills that could be used in an at home job, but am really looking at all possibilities. I love doing searches, but have not seen anything that would pay for such work. Do you have any suggestions?

      Hi Marla,

      To a certain degree I understand how you feel. It’s tough going through all you are. I’m not sure where you live, but here in Michigan if a family member is on Medicaid you, as the caretaker, can be paid the same amount as if you were hired from an outside company. You will ahve to go through some specific courses, but it is worth it.

      As far as a home-based job, there are sever from which to choose. And the nice thing is they don’t require experience – just an interest in the ‘job’ and the time to do it. It’s important to realize that the pay isn’t the best, so the more ‘jobs’ you do, the more you can earn. Here are some suggestions I have, and feel free to look through this blog for more ideas:

      http://www.ewomanweb.com/postloop/ (do online forum moderation, reply and moderate comments on forums, blogs, etc.)
      Lion Bridge or Leapforce as Search Engine Evaluators (evaluate search results to determine if they match the words typed in.)
      Micro Jobs (where you do quick little tasks for a little bit of money)
      Creative Freelancing (use your imagination to come up with ideas for services people will pay for)
      Website Testing
