If you could be good at customer service, you can find work-at-home customer service jobs. If you go to the women for hire website, you'll find virtual customer service descriptions. I can't put in the link or they'll strip it out. It doesn't pay that well, but I know when I was involved in a women's entrepreneur group, some of the women did those kinds of jobs on the side for more income. The website says: "In addition to having a pleasant voice and strong customer-service skills, you must have high-speed Internet access, a computer, a landline, and a quiet place to work—all of which you pay for on your own.

Expect to make an average of $8 and $15 an hour depending on your experience, call volume and accounts. Be prepared to work a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per week, although some agents work 40 hours to 60 hours when their schedule permits."

So you would have to be able to find time where you could work without being interrupted by your caregiving duties.

There is no qualification to take the course, and I do believe it comes with tips for getting started and finding clients. There are groups on Facebook that bring court reporters and scopists together. I do know the school is highly regarded, but it is up to you to find your clientele. I would suggest reading up on the school and finding reviews of past students (I have heard nothing but good about the school). But keep in mind it is definitely not immediate substantial income. It can take years to develop a clientele and many don't have the time or patience to make such a commitment. Definitely not a get-rich-quick scheme, lots of hard work and diligence to make it a viable business. I love this work I do as I've worked all weekend long here at it, but I do know that the school and the business is a legitimate way to work from home as I've done it for 22 years now, but no quick or easy way to success.

SoCalGal....Legitimate seems to be my hang up right now. Any info on how to qualify one of these schools/courses? then do they give you the info on how to find clientel?
Yes I realize there is going to be a challenge in it, time wise but it is my only option at this point!

Your plate is full and extra work will only push you over the edge. The frustration is being in the middle of "work" when the patient demands your attention. Even home work demands 4-8 hours a day. Fine if the kids are gone to school for the day, but extremely difficult with 24/7 care.

I have worked out of my home for over 20 years as a scopist. I took a home correspondence course to learn it. I edit and proofread court reporter transcripts. It is definitely a legitimate business but takes time to grow a clientele. Best Scoping Techniques is a good and legitimate correspondence school. It is not quick money but pays well when established and allowed me to stay at home with my two sons who are now young adults. Love my job and so grateful to have found it.
