LEGITIMATE work-from-home help. A post to help get you started in the right direction

Humble beginnings

I’m writing this exactly 1 hour before starting my work shift. I’m sipping on some half-caf coffee, trying to avoid the caffeine headaches that will come in Ramadan. (The Muslim’s Fasting month in which we fast from ingesting anything during sun up to sun down hours) I’m not rushing to find work clothing, stressing about having to stop for gas or worry about the rain on my commute. I want others to experience this for themselves. I want people to find their niche or place on their terms. The peace that comes from finding a job that you love, don’t have to commute to and actually offers a paycheck isn’t measurable alHamdulilah.

A no scams, nor making people buy or pay for things; REAL work from home DOES Exist. I see so many people in a bind, needing a way out and falling for scams.
Yes, it takes work to find a real work-from-home job. Yes, it’s hard to find something you can do, takes long hours of searches, resumes and answering the same questions on applications. But it’s worth it.
I’ll share a few sites with you so you can start your long search and repetitive application filling (hey, it DOES take work)

A note for the wise: Working from home/Searching for work from home is just as time-consuming and Needing Professionalism, time and effort as outside jobs! This is for all of you willing to put in that work to find something. You have to do your research, you’ll be doing a lot of reading, applying, researching companies and trying to find out if it’s a fit for you. These websites not only shares LEGITIMATE work-from-home ads but also tips to avoid falling for scams. Enjoy! Now remember it’s just a site with listings, they CAN’T answer job-related questions. You have to go on the site and read or call/message the actual company that’s hiring with your questions.

Now remember this blog post and many of the links to jobs are simply sites with listings. I nor they answer job-related questions. You have to go on the site and read or call/message the actual company that’s hiring with your questions.
Happy Searching and I wish you the best inshaAllah

change-a-millionSome of these are from my own searches, places that were promising or where I found work. A few of the other amazing suggestions come from my friend Kareema Falih over at The Go Mamas, who has been a great inspiration to me in so many ways over the last few years.

My go-to stop. This is always the 1st place I check. Even now, gainfully and happily employed alHamdulilah; I still check their postings out for friends and to share with others. There are literally HUNDREDS of postings on their site: Rat Race Rebellion

The next site is a forum. Here is where you’ll go for advice, tips, and how-tos in this exciting new world. Click HERE to sign-up.

The following site is also promising. It took really long to find how to market myself on there, learn the ropes and search. My page was mediocre at best. I had to edit, add all my experience and really focus on the wording. When I did, I actually had employers seeking me! It still shocks me. Their website was formerly known as ODesk. Now their name is UpWork.

what if…..just a few moments sooner

subhanaAllah! we never know when could be our last day or moment!!!

Yesterday I think it was just the “excitement/shock” of it, but it didn’t really hit home.

As most of you know my husband installs phone, cable and internet service he was outside in Chicago yesterday and some young men were dropped off and were hanging out directly in front of where he was gathering the equipment. They moved around the corner and a car came through and started shooting at them in broad daylight with children, babies and families outside and everything!

There was some ppl with strollers hiding behind my husband’s work van. My husband, those babies and kids could have all been shot if it had not been that those young men had started crossing the street around the corner. I say this not for pity, or as something to talk about on fb for likes but as a very real eye-opening plea. This happens everyday in Chicago, thousands of families loose loved ones and not just “bad people”. It happens to the innocent 8 times out of ten. The siblings, the neighbors, the kids, the lady walking to the store….. PLEASE KEEP ALL THOSE PEOPLE IN YOUR DUAS (PRAYERS) It’s a very real daily occurrence. Please make dua for those in Chicago. The Politicians don’t care too much because it’s not happening at their homes, ranches, yachts, and mansions.

Please make dua(prayer) Allah (God) guides them and guides and keeps us on the straight path, forgives us and makes us do better

 

I wanted this post as more of an eye-opening plea to notice what is going on in Chicago and ourselves on a different level…..

Everyday we eat to survive, wear our seatbelts try to “be safe” but the reality is death can come at anytime. What will we leave behind? Will facebook help us? Our barely there prayers? Do we do the bare minimum? 

I’m TRULY honestly speaking of myself and in genuine fear and hope for all of you. How much Quraan do we try to learn/memorize/recite or understand? seriously forget even day to day can we just answer for ourselves (not to me on here) what do we try to fix, change, improve, memorize or do for kindness to others?

How much Manners do we display, teach, try to learn? How much REAL Islam do we teach our kids and families with lovely dispositions, explanations and live examples?

If I died on this day besides having to rely on Allah’s mercy- what goodness would I have, what legacy would I leave behind, what Islam, goodness, memories, or practices and good deeds would even aid me on that VERY REAL Judgement day?
