I do not make 20k per month.

It's not the most thrilling of subjects, but I thought I'd mention that I have a job now. A legitimate work-from-home job. I do not make 20k per month. Nor are we retiring to an exotic island.

But I did make $18 in about 45 minutes yesterday. That's usually the exception to the rule -- I average about $12/hour. Still, that's not too shabby.

I call existing clients of a specific dentist's office and set up their six month exams and cleanings. I am paid on straight commission, which initially almost broke me. But the premise was so simple that I gave it an honest try. And what do you know? Most people with insurance are perfectly willing to set up an appointment! The hardest part is actually getting people to answer their phones.

Anyway, yeah. A good job. I only work evenings, once the dentists' offices are closed, and since I work commission, I pretty much only have to work until I've met quota, or am on track to meet it at the end of the month.

It's a good gig. They're occasionally looking for people. You need to go to quarterly meetings in Salt Lake, as well as for their interview and trainings. If anybody's interested, let me know!

That is so awesome!! Don't you just love working from home? Shane's sister was over last night and she was watching Shane get logged in to work and she was like, "I want to work from home!" I'm really glad you found this job! What a blessing! Oh, and I've been thinking about you a lot since Sunday, I'm just so happy!

That is so nice. It's nice to feel like you can do the most important thing (mommying) and still are able to make a little extra . . . congrats!

That's so good to hear. Isn't working from home just a great option? I love that I'm able to do transcription work after Joshua's in bed, and then when I'm no longer working full-time, I can keep contributing to the family income. It's great! Keep it up!
