Re: needing another income/job.. help please!

Just make sure you do research on the field. SIL was a medical transcriptionist for 20 years, but many places are going to computer dictation, and almost everyone in her company either lost their jobs or hours were cut way back. Also, at least at her company, you had to work 8 hours a day, and could only take 1 break at meals halfway through. The program keeps track of words per minute, so they know you are not wasting time. It wasn't like you could do a little work, then stop and deal with kids, then do more work, etc. She found that she had to have a babysitter to make it work for her, which made her not make enough money to make it worth it.
