Any good Work From Home Jobs?

I just lost my job that i've been working for over 5 yrs. Ive been home for the past 2 weeks and realizing how nice it is being with my family. Now I need to make up my income and needed some help. Everything I look for requires me to pay to join or I need to sell or refer people to make money. Im looking for something that I can do from home and still be able to enjoy my family.

    There are no start up fees or anything. It is bidding on freelance jobs that can be done from your computer.

  • Here is a list of legit companies that hire home based workers. These are NOT businesses. Unless they are telemarketing they will not be any selling, and even if there is it's not paid on commission. They will not charge you any fees to get started although they could require you to cover the cost of a background or drug test... Just ask.

    Good Luck!

  • 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 am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview prep. Feel free to contact me directly.

  • Hi, I know how great it feels to be with family especially when you have been out working all these years :)

    But .. ofcourse, the financial demands and needs of our lives never allows this 'be at home with family' pleasure to go on ...

    however, there are a lot of 'work at home with family' oppurtunities these days.

    I personally found to be my kind ... it is basically your business. You have excellent people in there working towards a very nice mission ... it is not just about earning more money!
