Here is another site that promotes women in their business ventures.
Count Me In champions the cause for women's economic independence by providing access to business loans, consultation and education.
The first online microlender, Count Me In uses a unique women-friendly credit scoring system to make loans of $500 to $10,000 available to women across the United States who have nowhere to turn for that all-important first business loan. The organization provides access to networks that expand contacts, markets, skills and confidence.
Why Count Me In?
- Count Me In is impartial, independent and understands the challenges facing women today.
- We want to strengthen women's position in the economy
- Count Me In will make women visible, valued and more powerful in the economy.
- Count Me In will address the systemic challenges that women face in traditional lending institutions that do not account for the realities of women's lives today.
- Count Me In will develop a more "woman appropriate" credit scoring technique that will measure a woman's economic life and business development potential.
Let's Create our own opportunity!
- The need for increased economic opportunity for women cuts across racial, ethnic and language lines.
- Women need financial services including small loans and funds for training and technical assistance -- in addition toinspiration and practical information.
- Current criteria for gaining access to credit and capital does not fit the lives many women lead or the kinds of businesses millions of women start and own.
- Women tend to start smaller, service related businesses, do not have traditional forms of collateral, have no credit or messy credit histories due to divorce or other life circumstances, and want smaller amounts of money to start a business.
- (And count me in understands this and works with you to navigate around these things.) -sl

HERE ARE SOME MONEYMAKING IDEAS FOR
THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Bake Yourself Some Dough this Christmas (And Other Ideas for Making Money during the Holidays!)
Here are some money-making ventures that you can embark on to make your holidays brighter and merrier.
by Liz Folgers
So far in my search , I have found , as most people probably already know
there are no jobs that make you rich overnight.
Just like away from home jobs , work at home jobs are just that-work .Some take training , and all take hard work and time.
I guess when a person needs money fast , they are not going to get it from a legitimate job opportunity. There are many
scams out there that are run by people who just want YOUR money.
They make it seem like they want to help , but they want to profit for themselves , not others.
The way I see it , if we need money right now, for an emergency, we need to keep searching for aid. Then when we are on our feet again, the ideas for working at home,or at a second job, will be more feasable.
~MORE JOBS CONTINUED AS I FIND THEM~
Here is a site that I just found that may not directly help you find a job , but they are working for you just the same
