  • I own my own website, Sabrina's Closet I created this site because I had been scammed or had simply failed while looking for work from home. I wanted a place where women could find real legit options and not have to feel like they were being pressured in to trying one or another. You can even explore the different pros and cons about home businesses vs. home Jobs. The site has grown in to a great site for earning opportunities but also for saving, shopping and even charities. I have tried to build it up around the idea that moms don't have time to go spend the day at the mall but they want the best deals. So, while I'm still working out the bugs, it's kinda taken on a life of it's own.

  • 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,, . 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; I also do career & job search coaching.

  • You can sell on craigslist and eBay for no upfront costs, just sell clothes, toys, accessories, collectibles and books you and your family no longer use. Then use the money earned and go to clearance sales, thrift stores, yard sales, consignment shops an sales and buy more you keep stocking your inventory you'll be able to keep profit for yourself as well. I make about $200-$300 in a profit a week selling part-time on eBay

  • I've worked from home for 8 yrs and I've had a lot of interactions with people in other at home businesses. You're going to have a hard time finding a legitimate business without any sort of start up fee. In the industry it's quite normal to invest in your business.

    I've personally averaged $60,000 per yr working part time for the last 8 yrs. I know the steps and activities it takes to work sucessfully with our company and I act as a mentor to guide others through the process of meeting their goals.

    It actually only cost $1 to start your business before Nov. 23rd. If you'd like to get more information, please call me at 949-487-1445 or log onto our website and request more information
