Working from home?

Does anyone have any information on earning money from home? I am not looking for a get rich quick thing, just something to bring in a little extra. If anyone has any legitimate ideas or information I would appreciate it.

  • Sure, my name is Kim and I'm with Gold Canyon.  Have you heard of them?  I've been with them just about two years and love this company!  This is a home-based business with a reputable 12 year old company, definitely not a get rich quick thing.  It's a great way to make some extra money and it could be a good fit for you, as it was for me.  This month you can enroll and get your kit for FREE.  I would love to show you how that works and get you some more information so you can make an informed decision.  Please PM me and we can chat/message some more!  There just isn't a lot of room in this space to tell you everything!  Have a great day!

  • I've cleared over 14k in the last year, it's not a way to get rich, but you can avoid retail/fast food jobs by doing it. You can see what I'm doing at  if you're interested.

  • Hi there,

    I am a stay at home mom and also a tastefully simple consultant. I love what I do, the product is great, I have a wide variety of clients since it is food, and the money is pretty good as well. If you would like more info or have any questions let me know!

  • There are work at home jobs and work from home businesses. With work at home jobs you usually need to have the proper equipment (or be willing to purchase it) a quite environment and experience. Your chances of finding a job are greater if you are a writer, educator, or have some other technical background. You should never pay anyone to start working a "job" from home.

    The other option is a home-based business. There are many options for starting a business. You can start one on your own such as daycare, bookeeper, etc. or you can look into a direct sales business such as Scentsy, Avon, Tupperware, etc. Many home-based business can be operated without have to do home parties and many offer the option to conduct business online. With a business you will need to make an investment. Here is a cafe mom group

  • I am now up tp 3 businesses... I work one full time and don't really earn from the others but that's because I don't really work them but an hour or so a week... I'm with them more for the free stuff and discounts than I am the business end... But here they are...

    I have a business with Ameriplan. I work it 99% from my computer and love what I do. It was really super easy to get started and only took me about an hour to get the websites and basic training done.
    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. Every trip to the store or walk with the kids is a chance to grow my business... But when you love what you do it's not really work is it?

We've even been featured in Parents Magazine. IF you would like to see the shows or read any of the articles please feel free to ask.
