  • That depends on what company you are talking about. Many are legit, but even more are scams. You have to be careful and know waht to look out for. Bottom line - don't ever pay money to get a job!

  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!

    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.

    I have been searching for a work at home job for the past two years. This has proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I've come across have been scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.

    I am so lucky to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!

  • I have tried and tried to find a decent work at home job and I haven't found one yet. The ones that I did find claimed that they were free but when you read through all of the mumbo jumbo it turns out that there is a cost. I could never understand why they advertise about needing people for jobs but you have to pay for them. The survey crap is just as bad. They claim they want you to answer questions which I don't mind at all, but when you go to these sites they only have offers and you pretty much have to buy something in order to receive points or cash. To me its all just a crock and I wouldn't even waste my time with it.

  • Yes, there are a lot of wonderful companies that are legitimate.  I work at home online, on phone and by mail.  I have been working from home now for 16 years and love it.  I made $960 my first month part time.

  • There are lots of legit home businesses. And a home business is different from a job at home. I love my home business and love to share my experience with others. If you would like to talk more about it, just contact me. We can find out if this is a good home business for you, your family, and your lifestyle. It may or may not be for you. I would be happy to speak with you about it. Take Care, LaurieCutch

  • I have my own Mary Kay business and it's definitely legit. It's still an at-home job, it's just that I'm in charge, so I answer to myself and write myself my own paychecks :) I'm happy to share more information and answer any questions that you might have.
