Are there any actual legitimate work from home jobs??

I am a young stay at home mom and I am unable to find a job anywhere where I live. I would love to work to just provide some extra income for our home. I see al these work from home jobs and I know that they are scams. Does anyone know of real work from home jobs out there???

  • 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.

  • There are tons that aren't scams.
    hen looking for a "job" you never want tp pay to work. If you are looking for a business you'll have more flaxibility and better income but you will have some sort of cost to run it.
    When I was looking I wanted something that was very crediable. Ameriplan has a great rating with the BBB, Consumer Health Alliance, US Chamber of Commerce plus TONS of Fortune 500 companies like; Walmrt, Target, Disney, Office Depot, Lens Crafters, Walgreens and so many more.

    No cold calling or selling!!
