Working from home?

Are any of you currently making money from home without having to put any money down, throw parties or waste alot of your time trying for something someone else has sugar coated for you? I need some ideas.

    Good luck and let me know if you have any questions

  • I also work from home and it's a home business with Ameriplan. There is a cost to run my business however it is very low as Ameriplan covers most of our monthly overhead for us. Having your own business gives you flexible hours and the pay is really amazing. It isn't something that you are going to get rich overnight with, you do actually have to work to build it. The pay is Residual which means you will building something that will last for you and your family :)

  • 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

  • With any business it all comes down to how much consistent effort you put towards the business.

    The company I work for has many independent reps (NO INVESTMENT ) who sell our books by simply sending people to a special web page (created for free ) to buy the books and all the credit card processing, and shipment of the book is taken care of on the website. REPS ARE NEVER REQUIRED TO BUY ANYTHING. Commissions range from 8-40% depending on the book, and as your volume of sales increase, your commission percentage does also. The more people you tell, the more chances for sales and the more money you can make.

    and if it looks interesting, click the contact button to send an email that you want to earn commissions, and someone will get back to you right away.
    Wishing you awesome success in whatever business venture you choose.
