Most of you know we have a huge Facebook following on our page and a very active and vibrant closed community as well. Because of these relationships, we get the luxury of really getting to know what is a common theme among homeschoolers. One topic that surprised me is how often work-from-home opportunities are asked about. Before homeschooling, I owned an information technology recruiting agency for years, so I immediately wanted to help homeschooling moms be able to supplement their families’ incomes by finding great opportunities that were actual legitimate opportunities.
Where they actually earn an income.
Yes, there are a thousand different MLM’s you can buy into… but from what we have seen, most of our moms are not looking for those opportunities. We now hunt down and post on our website all work-from-home jobs we can find for you! And we find them regularly!!
