  • In all seriousness if you REALLY want to make money commensurate with the amount of time and effort you put in to a job, you need to be creative and think of something YOU can make/design that people want, and start your OWN at home business!

    Many people start by making things they enjoy and sell them using a popular online vendor such as Ebay or similar online auction site. And then if things go well, may make the leap to renting display space in an established store/boutique, and then maybe opening their own shop in time!

    I've been selling actively on Ebay for the past 9 years, I attend/sell/market my items at Wedding expos, and I rent a display case and window space at a high end hair salon and spa. All from the comforts of my own home! And I work as much or as little as I want/need.

    It takes time to brand yourself, and start making a profit, but the rewards are great when you're own boss! :o)

  • I just started an at home biz a few months back, not making anything, not selling anything, not doing parties. I have 2 little ones at home and don't have time for that extra stuff. The comp I work with just recently won an award from the BBB so its ethics and integrity so it is no scam! If interested in getting more info, you can visit my website at or email me at I would love to talk to you and get you more info! Thanks

  • A home Business with Ameriplan is what I do. Just the fact that you DON"T want a get rich is great!! So many people are looking for that and get disapointed. We can get you to a 6 figure income but in 2-4 years NOT overnight LOL. We have been around for 17yrs and we are associated with big names like Target,Walmart,CVS,walgreens,Lens Crafters, Pearl Vision. The company really is amazing and I love working my own business knowing I'm building it for me and my family. Let me know if you;d like some information. They offer Daily Pay~benefits~401K~5 websites~Training and ongoing support.

  • You can search the job boards for positions that match your skillset and have a telecommute option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization, in addition to coaching.
    Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation.

  • I'm a work at home mom and I wanted to tell you about the easy job I have. It's free, I'm trying to get you to buy anything, or sell anything either. It's not going to make you a millionare, or buy a summer home in Paris. However, I do make enough to cover about half of my household bills and I don't have to work a 9 to 5 anymore or send my daughters to a daycare. You can read more at Earn Money Online
