  • The majority of what you will find are going to be home business opportunities, many of which are very legit. However, there are many companies out there that do hire home based workers. You just have to know where to look. I have some great information for you on working from home posted on my blog and a list of companies that hire home based workers on my website.

    Good Luck in your search!

  • I am looking for something like that too. But I always find one where you have to pay a certain amount to start and I really don't want to have to do that. Are they all like that?

  • 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.

  • It is possible to stay home and make money. To be able to start your very own home business for less than $30 is worth taking a look. I stay home with my 4 kids ages 6 and under. I've teamed up with a wellness company. They've been in business for over 25 years and they've been helping families escape the financial rat race. If you feel you have between 5 and 15 hours a week to work a business, then you can make money. It's tough raising a family in this day and age. I was tired of scraping by; I was tired of saying "no" to everything. Now I don't have to. I'm not saying I make millions but I do earn a decent amount. If you are serious then please check out my website I'll call you and we can set up an appointment.

  • All I wanted was to Stay at home and raise my Own Children...I was
    totally shocked at all the scams on the Internet that were targeting
    people like me.

    I spent months looking, and did pay some "fees" to find out

    about legitimate work from home. None of them were able to offer
    anything more than a few surveys for pay, crafts to assemble, or
    mystery shopping (all of which were nothing more than some spare
    change...not an income).

    I am very excited to now Own my own Home Business.

    I am working at my own pace and I have met and Teamed up with some
    Awesome Mothers and others...that have the same Goals as I DO!

    I would love to share this opportunity with you. Just visit my
    website, and I will contact you with the details.

  • I have an at home business where I'm partnered with a wellness company. At heart, we’re a group of conscientious shoppers (now over 500,000 strong) who believe that the products we use everyday should help make our homes, our family, and our world healthier and happier.

    It requires no large investment, selling, parties, or overhead costs. You can work as much or as little as you want. You will get great member benefits such as 40% off all your household products, $100 in free shopping dollars, and you get paid just for referring your friends to the products!!

    My daughter just turned one and because of this company I have been able to be a stay at home mom and enjoy every minute of my daughter! It truly is the best work experience I've ever had and I'm sure you'll feel the same way.

    Check out my website or message me for more details!
