As followers of my blog, you probably know that I am a stay-at-home mom. Al hamdulilah (Praise be to God) my husband has a job where he is able to provide for our family comfortably. We are not well off by any means but we do get by even in this terrible economy. (Can you believe both milk and gas at 4.00 a gallon!) I’ve been home for two years now and have never been able to find an internet job that I can work with toddlers running around in the background. If you have visited my website, http://www.mymuslimmom.com then you have seen the list of legitimate work at home jobs that I have found. My problem is that most of the jobs are either phone telemarketing or customer service work. It requires a few hours of quiet work in a noise free environment. I have not had quiet hours for four years! (My oldest is four.) And I refuse to commit to sacrificing what little sleep I get!
That’s why I am so glad I was accepted as a Cha Cha guide. It is a completely internet, text only job. Cha Cha works by random individuals texting their questions from their mobile phone and I look up the answer and text them back. You can jump online at anytime and from anywhere and text. You can also just work 15 mins here or 5 hours there. There are no minimums or maximums. The pay could be better, but hey I like it because it is so completely flexible.
If you are looking for a way to put a little extra change in your pocket I would check them out. The only caution I would advise is that they are very selective. They test your general knowledge, typing skills and common sense before approving you and then after approval you still must undergo training. I am bound by confidentiality clauses so I can’t go into details but I can tell you that not everyone who applies or initially is approved makes it to the “guide” stage. However with the company growing rapidly I am hopeful that more opportunities for others will arise. If you are a guide, let me know how you are doing. If you are not but are going to check it out then, I wish you good luck. InshaAllah (God Willing) you will be cha cha-ing soon!
