Stay At Home Moms

There are indeed many stay at home jobs not just for moms, but Dads as well. Legal services and Virtual assistant jobs are a good choice, and less scammy when trying to find one as opposed to a biz op! (link removed by moderator)

Virtual Assistant a Good Choice

I think a business as a virtual assistant, or virtual professional is a good choice because it assures that stay at home moms can indeed stay home. Virtual assistants and professionals are not limited to secretarial or admin tasks - there are virtual assistants in a wide variety of specialties.
