    Completely free, it's a real job. You get online and answer questions that people text to chacha (242242) when they don't have access to a computer to find the answers themselves. Normally it's addresses or phone numbers, sometimes its jokes or trivia or sports scores. Always something different. They provide you with training, and you make 10-20 cents per question you answer.

  • Everybody seems to be looking to work from home. It's a very competitive marketplace. I have been searching diligently for nearly 9 months. I just got hired to work from home and have to pass a background check before I start orientation next week. If you want info and are serious about working from home, PM me.

  • I work from home. I am hard pressed to find a work at home job that is free. Though there are businesses that offer monthly promotions to sign up.
    I'm with Gold Canyon. Have you heard about them? This month, sign up is Free with sales of $350 (for the sampler kit) or $700 (for the Full kit) within the first 30 days. This product really does sell itself. My first party was over $750 and since I hosted it, I also got the rewards for that.
    Here is a brief overview.
    Gold Canyon offers a complete line of candles, body and home products including home fragrance in the form of scented candles, Room Sprays and Sachets, eco-friendly, natural, green cleaning products, home décor with various candle holders; personal care with hand scrub, hand silk, body lather, body lotion, body polish, body crème, bath soak, body mist and candle care products such as wick dippers and trimmers.

    Hope this helps 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.

  • You shouldn't have to pay for a JOB. I am a WAHM and I invested into having my own business, which makes a lot of your expenses tax deductible. You can take a look at my website and take a look for yourself. It might or might not be something for you, but it is 100% legit. Feel free to call me if you have questions. Good Luck.

    Answer by SonjaSC at 1:26 PM on Apr. 3, 2009

  • 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.
