I have recently become unemployed and am considering offering my services as a 'nanny / house manager / personal assistance' to a professional family in need of a live-in provider. Wondering how to get started. I've always been professionally employed, and as a single parent to 2 grown daughters I possess a lifetime of experience - no actual experience in the field - so agencies are less than enthusiastic when approached. I've tried Craig's List but responses so far range from weirdo to desperate uneducated single women unable to afford the kind of service I am proposing to offer. I am single and unencumbered so location is not really a concern, however, I am now living in the greater Boston area. Of course I can provide excellent personal references and pass a background check..... Any ideas and suggestions are appreciated.
