  • Is it a Home Business your are searching for or a Home Job? If it's a business, then I'd like to share with you about Gold Canyon.
    PM me if you would like more information.

  • Typically, those programs (cashcrate, surveys, chacha, etc.) WILL make you money, but IMO it's not worth it. The time you spend is far wasted with the little amount you will make off your endeavors.

    I have a home photo studio where I conduct my business, but I'm pretty sure that's not what you meant by "work at home" jobs.

  • I have a business that I run out of my home. I do freelance bookkeeping and business administration, and I do career and job search coaching. I am always happy to help Cafemoms with resumes, coverletters and job search strategy.

  • Fludd, have you *tried* ChaCha? IMO it's WAY better than those survey sites. I've been a member of one survey site for over 4 months, and I try out every survey they send me and I've made $15 dollars total. I've been with ChaCha 6 weeks and I've made $175. So I guess it depends on the person.

    Also, I have a home business that is free to try if you're interested! DiamondCreek Candles is a GREAT company to work with; there's always someone around to help you out. Our products really set us apart from all of the other candle biz's out there, take a look and see for yourself!

  • Can you work from home and make money? YES! Are you going to do it with GPT and survey sites? NO. You can make a few bucks that way but nothing really worth talking about... I have a home business and I pay the bills with my income, so it's more than possible!

    I'm with Ameriplan. Ameriplan is Low Cost. Offers Lots of Benefits! No Selling, No Parties, Deliveries or Products to stock! No Cold Calls! And you will only have to talk to those that come to you. Work part time or full time with a full nation wide team for training and support when ever you need it!
    I work about 2-4 hours a day from my computer, an hour a day from the phone, and then do my training while I'm cleaning or playing with the kids. Most of our team is made up of moms just like you and me, and we hold an average of just 2-4 years for a 6 figure income for those that are willing to work the business. What could you do with an extra full time income?

  • Yes. Most definitely. The most profitable WAHM job is child-care, especially if you are accredited.

  • MOTHEROFANARIES: Yes, I've tried ChaCha. For the amount of time it took, it was like making $4-$5 per hour. Not worth it to me, but I agree that it's better than the other companies.
