I am a single mom and for a living I work from home.
I am a single mom to two kiddos, and both are special needs. I need a flexible schedule because they have appointments and sometimes need me to pick them up during the day. So I work two at home jobs, one here as a hostess and another as a customer service phone rep for a large theme park. I also sell things on Ebay and do taxes as side work. I used to be a content writer but I haven't been able to do that as much lately.
There really are TONS of things you can do at home, you just have to use your talents and remain flexible and professional.
