  • Gosh I remember being where you are - I finally ended up with a company I heard about when I was pregnant with my first but thought it was "too good to be true"...a few years a a number of time-wasters and scams later, I finally enrolled and LOVE IT!

    Stop by my page and say hi if you want, but don't try to do any assembly jobs or envelope stuffing - they are all scams!

  • I seriously do not think those jobs are real, in fact I think I saw something about this on the news and they make money from the people that put them together/somehow.

    Let me ask you something: What are you GOOD at? Think that through. Then think, how can I use this in making money! We all tend to put those things to the side and just do something for the dollar. Think about what you are good at? Then look to integrate your TALENT. Such as: sewing, crafts, etc. Take a purse and redesign it - sell it on ebay.
    With the internet, you can do anything! Tons of free blogs that you can upload pics. Go to weekend markets to make some money.
    Don't rely on the " quick cash" promised here - too time consuming for what U get out of it. The internet is worldwide & So can you be. More people make it with their own stuff.
    Go for a dream, don't just be the average!
    GOOD LUCK!

  • I work at home with my 5 and 2 year old at home with me and absolutely love it! The comp I work with just recently won an award with the BBB so it is no scam! There are no parties, no stocking of inventory, no MLM! Feel free to visit my website at www.beingunited.com or email me at rebeccabowen@live.com. I would love to answer your questions! Thanks

  • I make extra money working online. 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 http://www.freewebs.com/free2workathome/ if you're interested. (Everything posted is free)

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote 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 www.ivaa.org.
    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 three lines of business; I am doing lead generation for a sales and service organization; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview prep.
