Does anyone know of any legitimate "Work from Home" jobs?

My broken ankle hasn't completely healed yet and I'm trying to get some extra money up to get my first book of poetry copywritten. I'll then have to get that copywrite registered with the Library of Congress. That won't be free either. But I know it takes money to make money. So, tell me something good ladies...

  • If you are looking for a job, there are some places that I found on the internet that you can go. One place is That is where I found my job. You can put your resume on their and bid on jobs that are open. It can be hard because you are bidding against people from India that offer $2.00/hr for administrative services. We all know that you can not afford to live on that in the US! Also you can check out the following sites. I know they are legit...but I don't know if they are hiring.

    If you are looking for your own home based business, that is when there is a start up cost. It all depends if you want a job or a business.

    Good luck!

  • Every single one i have encountered, you pay money up front, and then you are on your own. None of them are any good. I wouldn't trust them.

  • I have tried every thing to make money from home. I have found many scams and many other things that take too much time and I made pennies. I was totally against Direct Sales until I found the right leader and product. I did 2 direct sales companies before I found my passion and the right people to lead me to the top. Now, I have a home business that I just LOVE. Organic Chocolate and Weight loss...I've lost 10lbs in 14 days by eating chocolate before my meals. If you want to know more, PM me.

    I fill out surveys and make easy money it is no scam! Its great! The more ppl you refer the better the money is. I fill out a survey here and there but I make the most money off my referals. Everytime a referal gets to $10 you get a bonus on top of that you get a 20 percent of everything they make! You recieve a dollar for just doing your information! Good luck

  • I have two direct sales companies I work for but you have to sell to make money. Nothing is free you have to work to get paid.

  • Check out As a writer/poet, you would be able to sell your poetry and any other artwork or handmade item that you make. Opening your own store is free and it is $.20 per every listing you make. There are Cafemom Etsy groups as well as groups on Flickr, facebook etc that you can join to network and advertise your work.
