I''m interested in finding a work at home job.

I know there are a lot of scams out there and I'm not tyring to pay hundreds of dollars just to sign up. In my opinion you should not have to pay a dime to work, they pay you. So if there is any money coming out of my pocket, please don't post it.

  • Well, you're right. You should never have to pay to work for someone else. What most of us do is OWN home businesses. So, we are working for us. You wouldn't expect to open a McDonalds for free, would you? So why is it that a home business would be different? That's why most of us have fees involved, because we are opening a business from home.

    I do have a list of JOBS on my website as well as quite a few businesses. Feel free to look in to all or any that spark your interest.

    Good Luck on your search!

  • I do agree with the post already sent to you. I too am in Virginia, Loudoun County.
    I am a Independant Demonstrator for Gold Canyon. I am hosting a Opportunity and Area meeting at my home next Wednesday, April 1 at 6:30pm. I'd love to have you come. There are a few gals who cannot get coverage for their kids so they are bringing them. I have a huge finished basement with a media room so I was going to have a kids movie playing for them. Take a look at my web site and view Gold Canyon products. I started in January and really love it. I have a four year old daughter and wanted to find a business that I could do from home. This really fits the bill.
    You can call me if you want and I can discuss the opportunities with you. I am heading to help out at the school for Movie Night (PTA) so I'll be gone from 6pm - 10pm.
    My web site is
    My home number is 540-338-3991
    Hope to hear from you.

    I am a work from home mom and I am partnered with a Wellness company that distributes eco-friendly products. My daughter has never gone to daycare because I found a real work from home job. I do not sell. I do receive a check once a month. I do have a website that you could go to if interested......

    This company is a member of the Better Business Bureau.

  • If looking for a JOB, what are your marketable skills and previous experiences? If you are looking for a BUSINESS, go with your passions, things that interest and motivate you the most. Build a list and use that to begin your search. General rule of thumb: Never pay for a job (businesses, on the other hand, usually involve some expenses).

    The most common work at home JOBS pertain to customer service, administration, sales, tutoring, writing, consulting, healthcare, marketing, and technical support. There are also many legitimate home BUSINESS opportunities in direct sales, affiliate programs, and network/referral marketing.

    Find a rep to contact, check out their websites, ask questions, do your own independent research. Check resources such as for potential scams. I also have several resources for finding legitimate work from home opportunities in my "Working Mom Entrepreneurs" group here on Cafemom.
