I did some thesis typing for college level several years ago. Not sure, with the advent of computers, if this is a viable possibility. Check with your local college, and/or put up a note on their bulletin board offering your services to the students. You'd be surprised how many things you probably can do for them.

Proofreading is a great idea! Tutoring may also be an option, check to see what your city/county requires to be a professional tutor. If you're physically able, you'd be surprised what people will pay to have their clothes washed and folded. If you have a local college or university, check around campus and see what there is a need for.

If you like to write, maybe you could do some proofreading for students--my son does this occasionally and gets paid for it.
But then again, he probably would write the papers too!!

Blessed be.

I don' t know about working from home..but I did tax work part-time and it worked out for me. I did 4 hours 3x a week. Others that I worked with eventually got their own list of clients and worked from home during the tax season. I was always a bit uncomfortable with that...but that is another eventual possibility. None of them have had any problems, and they have been doing this for several years..

I hope to do some medical billing or coding once I retire. I have one class under my belt, and hope to be qualified or nearly qualified by the time retirement really rolls around. Don't know what Obama-Care will do to this potential career choice, though.

Excellent question. I find mornings to be my roughest time. Yet, I have no choice but to work full time. Not old enough to retire and I am my only income source. I would think if you could get a job answering phones later in the day, or something along those lines.

........I'm fairly unreliable to keep commitments.

Hi all.
Some of us with advanced pain due to arthritis and other painful ailments, know that we don't know how our day is going to be, until we wake up and start to move around. There are mornings when I know the day will be torture.....and the best thing I can do is to rest.

And then there are mornings when I feel pretty good and am ready to tackle the day with some gusto. But this uncertainty has bad consequences.

For instance, I'd love to get a part time job to bring in a little supplemental income - badly needed! My medicine costs have gone through the roof now that I've reached the Medicare 'donut hole.'.......and I could surely use some extra cash. But - being so unreliable - how can I look for a job where I HAVE to be there no matter what??

I guess what I"m asking is.......does anyone know a LEGIT way of making some money working from home?? Whatever I've looked into has been a scam, or a fraud, or both.

Anyone have any ideas?? (I had planned to make and sell my jewelry - I had before and made some nice cash - but, as my hands are getting more and more arthritic and painful.....I'm doubtful that I'll be able to continue with that.......) emoticon So, I'm looking for something else.

I'd sure welcome any feasible ideas.....

Thanks so much - team mates!!
