  • Yes, there are legit companies. Try looking at the jobs available on

    I work from home as a business owner - I'm a home party rep, and it's extremely profitable for me. Check out that site, the job listings, the business opportunities, and see what tickles your fancy. There are some companies that hire telephone reps and data entry reps who work from home.

    You might also try I think the site is. There are people everywhere looking for independent contractors to do a variety of jobs - from proofreading to editing to data entry to online advertising. You might be able to contract yourself out as a freelancer, which gives more freedom to work your own hours.

  • There are a huge number of companies that will let you work from home! Depending on what you want to do you can find a great number of places that would allow you to do it at home. Now the question is how hard are you willing to work and how much do you want to make? If you are looking for an income of 50K don't exspect to find an at home job where you are going to make it. But an At Home Business would allow you too... Although you will have to work a few years to reach that level. I am with an at home business. I will hopefully have the income this summer that will allow my husband to retire... He'll be 30. No job would ever let us do that.

  • Open a daycare in your home, get educated in a service you can do out of your home: cosmetology, massage, growing and selling garden and landscape plants. Create and make your own lotions, creams, soaps, etc. Take a cake decorating class and build your own home business...there are lots of things you can do if you find selling other peoples products frustrating!

  • If looking for a JOB, what are your marketable skills and previous experiences? If you are looking for a BUSINESS, go with your passions, things that interest and motivate you the most. Build a list and use that to begin your search. General rule of thumb: Never pay for a job (businesses, on the other hand, usually involve some expenses). I recommend checking out the Telecommuting Moms folder at for leads on home JOBS. I also have some resources for freelance work and telecommuting jobs on my Work From Home site.
