Where can I work from home without any start up fees or scams or any money at all....?

You saw my question, and here is the situation... this is urgent because I just lost my job and I'm expecting a baby here in September. I did not qualify for unemployment and I don't even have a high school diploma! I happened upon my last job purely by luck, but I need money. I was just wondering if any of you ladies knew any sites that are not scams and that require no fee to start up, no experience necessary, and is free for me. I desperately need help!

  • I use I don't know if there is anything that you could do on there. It is all places that are outsourcing their work. There are a lot of options. If you don't think you have a talent for anything, then stick to the article writing. Some of those assignments are so easy you can practically do them in your sleep. If you have any questions let me know. You can PM me if you need to.

  • 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 start selling Tupperware for free. Simply host a book party (I can send you everything you need). Collect at least $400 worth of sales and you have earned enough commission from those sales to cover the cost of the Business Kit plus your state taxes to start your business for free. Plus you are a host so you can add to your kit with your host credits also if you sell over $400 you could already start making money right away! I sole $600+ at my first Tupperware party so I made $150+ which was MORE than enough to cover my kit which is 79.99 plus your states tax. LOVE IT!! 508-612-5692 is my cell number call me if you have ANY questions about Tupperware My name is Amy!! GOOD LUCK!!

  • I have my own home based business which being a business I do have a monthly overhead to run it. You can go to and check out their Forum, there is a section for job leads. When looking for a work from home "job" you shouldn't have to pay anything as you are workinf for someone. When you start looking at work from home "Businesses" you are almost always going to have some sort of cost to run it. But they are out there so don't let people tell you that tey are ALL scams, a lot are but not ALL.

    Good Luck hun and God Bless!!
