Does a legit work from home job exist???

I'm looking for a legit work from home job. One with NO start-up fees, no monthly memberships or anything. You shouldn't have to pay to have a job. Does it exist? I have 3 children under 4, and need to find an employer that can understand that. Doctor's appointments, OB visits, and I don't have a car nor can I afford daycare.

I need to make a minimum of 400/week. And it has to be pretty much guaranteed as long as I do the work. I will NOT do appointment setting. I've been scammed by those before.

I'm looking for something I can do, or my boyfriend can do or maybe both. I've drained all resources I've been able to find. Does anyone out there work for a legit company that allows you to work from home without cost, with kids, and pays well and ON TIME?

Please help. We're in a serious bind.

  • I won't promise you a certain level of income, but I will show you the companies I work for. EARN AT HOME

  • Please, no survey sites. I don't have the kind of time to sit there all day and do surveys for an income.

    400 a month is not enough... it needs to be 400 weekly...

  • Well, Mama what you are looking for does not exist. If it did, then everyone would be doing this! The truth is that a legit home job is very hard to find. This is why most people that work from home have a home business, which will always require an investment. You are correct, you should NEVER pay anything for a job! But you will ALWAYS have to invest in a business. If you do happen to find a legit home job, it will most likely be a customer service position which will require a quiet working environment and with kids, that is virtually impossible. Also, a home job will NOT pay anything close to $400/week. You CAN make that much money from home but it will have to be with a business. And it won't happen overnight, a business takes time to build. But after 2-4 years of consistent work in your business, you will be making much MORE then a full-time income from home! I do know that ChaCha is hiring now but......

  • ChaCha is awesome! I make about $200 a week, but I only do it part time. Only during DDs naps. If you do it full time, you can make more. They are hiring now, but only temporarly, so you have to act fast! If you join, please put as your referal! Thank you!

  • I wish you the best of luck in your job search. I was in the same boat at the end of 2008. I realized I wanted a certain level of income and stability in my home. Through multiple searches and scams I finally realized it is next to impossible to achieve. Many work at home jobs are from companies with existing workers. A lot of companies do not hire someone "off the street" to work from home. They mostly want someone who they know can do it alone and be trusted.
    I decided at the end of the year that I needed to invest in something with little start up cost and do what I need to do to make my business work. I become a Pure Romance consultant selling tasteful and sophisticated adult items. There is nothing gross or extra sexual about Pure Romance and the money is what you make it. You can earn as little as $100 and as much as $500+ in one party. If you do one to two parties a week you will be earning more than the $400/week.

  • Continued.....Pure Romance is having wonderful kit sales this month and the lowest is $99. It comes with the basics to get your business off the ground. You can work with a sponsor to help you in making your business grow. If you put the work and effort into getting your name out there then the rest will fall into place. You should visit my website Check out the information and see if it is right for you. Contact me if you would like and I can be of more help through email with no writing limitations.

    Good luck and Hope to hear from you soon!
