      Mrs. Shilpa,
      For on line jobs, I would suggest you to search job from the sources near by you. Because we give only information and guidance and rightnow, we don’t have any vacancy. If I have some work which suits you, I will definitely let you know. If you want online data entry and forms job, you should visit the article in this website only named “online data job”. So read it and also read the comments and posts so you will get better idea about that. If you have any further query you can definately ask questions.
      Thank you.

      Mrs. Shilpa,
      This is the most asked question by housewives. I would suggest you to find such jobs from the known sources. You can find such jobs from news paper classifieds as well. There are many websites providing such jobs. But at that point of time trustworthiness of that website matters a lot. You should select such website where office no. is given. And you should call and verify that is it proper or not.
      Thank you.

      Mrs. Sam,
      The idea is very good. The information you need are available from some special sources only. For the room, you have to go to a estate agent and they can help you to strike a good deal.
      As far as the customers are concerned, you need to go to these people or to their offices with a proposal describing your offer and specialty.
      And as far as cooks and employees are concerned, it is dam easy to get once you spread the word.
      So all the best. If you need any more guidance, please ask questions. We would love to guide you.
      Thank you.
