I really need a Stay at home job and no scams

Please ladies....any ideas? I am 28 weeks pregnant going to school online for time and very capable of working from home. I ran a Human Resource Dept for over 300 employees but the commute really wore me out. Do you have any ideas? Anyone that really does work from home? I would appreciate any feedback...thanks a bunch!

  • Unless you are an already proven excellent salesperson, don't do home sales. People aren't funneling their money into buying over priced products from home parties or catalogs. It sounds like the route you are going will work for you.

    I have a friend who is setting up to be a "virtual assistant." She has two degrees, but prefers to be home with 2 kids in high school. I know she has just completed one job planning a large event for one small corp.

  • There are lots of ways to make money online. Some require investment, but I stay away from those. It's too hard to tell which ones are scams. I stick with the free ones and I've been able to average about $1500/month or more for the last 6 months. I listed and ranked the sites I use at

  • I work at home with Tupperware and my business is growing. We are the ONLY plastics CO that has a LIFETIME warranty so people are spending the money because they will save it in the long run.

  • There are TONS of ways to stay home and not all require sales. I have a growing website for women just like you... It's got information about what I do, Ameriplan, as well as a list of legit home jobs and even some great ways to SAVE money. I will be adding more and more home opportunities as I build.

    I personally work from home with Ameriplan and I LOVE it. I make better money in my PJs than I ever made in my uniform for my job. And I'm here w/my kids. Listen to a FREE info overview presentation at and visit my site above or my business site at for all the details.

    I'm here for ANY questions!

    Good luck!

  • I am a sahm/wahm. I used to sell Tupperware and Avon but found that people just don't want to spend money on those things right now. In looking for a discount dental plan for my family I found AmeriPlan. Not only do I have my dental program for my family but I also signed on as an Independent Broker. There is a small fee (under $100) because this is your own business, not a job, but is well worth it. Commissions every month actually cover the monthly fee. You can read more about it on my site if you'd like.
