Salaams Nanima. It seems there are many intelligent, smart, well educated “Career at home mums” who are seeking to do admin work and the likes from home. Why not create a forum for us and we can perhaps get companies who would support that too. Unity is strength

    Shaheeda Fakir first u hve to negotiate with companies an then see how much work an how many people needed. There is so much that can be done filing, salaries etc.Also with today people going on strike i think this will be a relief to most companies as their work will get done. Its an excellent idea.

    Asief Omar I’m thinking of a concept, I have something in mind for a forum and the go abouts where clients request a service online and it gets sent through a designated email box managed by 1 person, that person then delegates the work to a staff member ( 1 of the mums @ home ) , equily too. Give me 3 days to work out something and get some sponsorships to create the site/forum and processes. Inbox me email addresses of all interested

    Park Primarys also need to set up a data base of who is available, what skills and experience they have, what resources they have /need (internet, print, fax, software,etc.). once this is set up, and you have a professional look and feel, you can start advertising. I would start as widely as the skills set can possible address, universities, companies, private, buys moms and dads. Also maybe you can include baby sitting and basic tailoring, cooking services too if there is a supply of thsi service. I think there is always a need for it:)

    Fatima Kola My brother is excellent at setting up websites. But why re-invent the wheel when we have our Nanima? Failing that, we would register a domain then start advertising. We have nanima and she’s just been sooo successful. How about at the next expo we set up “careers at home mums” and invite companies to provide work. Admin, salaries, even supplying to their tuck shops. The idea is there. Pls don’t let it fall by the way side.

    Ask Nanima? ‎Fatima Kola and everyone interested, this platform is perfect for this idea as well as it does fall under home industry some how.. just need to think about it more on how we can utilise this platform to make this work.. a database of cvs may be the first thing we need to do.. everyone put’s their skillsets etc.. but let us brainstorm.. looks like lots of people love this idea.. might need some volunteers to help

    Fatima Kola Ok ladies and gents, in unity there is strength. All of us are here, in a short space of time I have 73 likes and counting. Now the idea is to get as many companies as possible to share our vision and supply the work. We can go into the database and list all our beautiful skill sets but its of no use if we don’t get corporate “buy ins” any ideas on how to do that? Where would we advertise?

    Hasina Cassim excellent idea is to do bookkeeping from home I am doing it and I average about R20000 per month. All you need is a computer and accounting software and ofcourse you need an accounting background. You just have to pick up the clients work do it at home and deliver it. Sometimes they will e-mail you the bank statements. I just picked up a job for R14000 and would probably take me maximum about 3 days to do. Just an idea if anyone is interested

    Park Primarys Fatima Kola, to answer your question, how get corporate buy in. The first thing you need to do is build a brand and image, so lets come up with a name for this company- and it needs to be a company, not just a group of people working informaly together, if you want to be taken seriously and get people to pay you to do their work, you need to be serious and project a professional, reliable image. step 2: once you have a name and some info on what you do , you need to market it.get a website, soem flyers etc. I suggest that people identify contacts and companies that they already know, or have worked with in THEIR FIELD/SECTOR. So lets have x number of industries that match theskills set eg, admin, book keeping, telesales, legal advice etc. and then appoint a task team of 2 -3 individuals to each sector who will be responsible for :a) setting up and completing the data base of people whoa re looking for work in taht sector (with their cv’s) and b) who will make a list of potential work suppliers and establish contact with them through email, phone and face to face meetinsg to introduce the concept .

    Fatima Kola ‎@Haseena Cassim, I think many of us have computers. Would u be willing to teach us accounting then share some clients as you seem to be very successful already. As I’ve offered before, I’m willing to do a “visioning” session free of charge with whoever is willing to come forward. The idea also is to “create work” for ourselves and not wait on corporate to provide it for us. What do u think?
