  • 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

  • I have tried everything listed above all were scams or impossible to make money at. Don't waste your time. As for making real money (and very little) you can do a few of the survey sites, a work at home business (ie tupperware, avon, mary kay) or you can take care of kids. Thats about all that works. None are going to bring in a full time income.

  • Passion Parties is awesome. <3 They don't have a 'party minimum' and you gets TONS of training - online, through your uplines, training calls, conventions, ect. Everyone is very supportive of each other. Plus the parties are just fun. If you'd like more info, you can contact me through my profile - OR email me ''. :-D

  • First of all, please don't listen to others who say they tried something and it didn't work. Many times it was them not the business. Home Businesses do work. You just have to know what to look for, find something you are passionate about and work it.

    Even though many will tell you the Opportunity is the "best" or "has the highest payout scale". If you are new to looking that means nothing to you. I have a successful Home Business and unlike one of the ladies comments, do bring in a full-time income. What I do is educate first. Please visit this website and learn all you can so you will not what to look for and how all this Home Business stuff works. I am living proof it works. But it's the person's responsibility to work it. Go to Good luck!
