Where do I find a job to work from home that isn't a scam?

Searching for a job from home has turned out to be a million times harder than I thought. There are ton of scams out there and it seems harder than ever to find a job that allows me to be home with my daughter without forking out a ton of money to do it. The bbb hasn't been much help. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

  • You can visit my website: I have had great success with this company. Otherwise, check out the companies. You can visit for legit at home businesses and/or jobs and they also list the ones that are scams.

  • Most are scams unfortunately. Maybe work a part time job at night. I know many sahm's who do this. They get to be with their kids and still make money without paying for daycare. I have worked opposite shift of my husband. It is not easy but better than him working two jobs and not seeing our son. Thankfully, those days are behind us but we did what we had to.

  • There are several companies out there that are not scams, you just have to know where to look. Are you looking for a job or a business? There are pros and cons to both. What do you like to do? How many hours do you want to work? Are you planning on keeping your LO home with you? If so, a business may be the better way for you to go. Many companies that allow you to work from home only offer telephone jobs and have a zero tolerance policy for background noise. There are many moms on here that can offer you advice on jobs. You just need to make sure you research the company well and get several objective opinions on all of them before committing to anything. Let me know more about what you are looking for and I can point you in the right direction.

  • I sell Diamond Creek Candles and it's free to sign up! I have been making extra money since the day I started. The candles are beautiful and smell divine. Just about everyone loves candles so these candles sell themselves. There are no quotas to meet either. I love selling candles and know you will to if you like candles. I can have you up and running by tonight if you are interested. Let me know your thoughts.

  • I feel for ya I know what you are going through but before you join anything I would recommend doing research before you start anything I'm sure your finding out that this isn't always the easiest thing to do either.

    Try finding something you have a passion about as well and if you do find something that peaks your interest ask plenty of questions. Some people say things are scams b/c it didn't work out for them but that might not be the case for other people. Wishing you luck!

  • When I lost my job, my husband and I started our own company working with a technology company. We have products that people want and need. We are always looking for people who have integrity, leadership skills and enjoy helping people. If that is you, send me a private message and I will get you more info. We set our own hours, have fun working together and are truly blessed to have found this Christian based company. All of the training is done online, in your own time and it's free. Awesome Opportunity!
