  • I really work from home as a medical transcriptionist. You can take courses online or through your local community college. It usually takes between 6 months to 2 years, depending on the course and your speed. I make twice minimum wage for my area and I work from home full time. I can PM you more details if you are interested.

  • I work from home as a Juice Plus distributor. My website is if you would like to see more about Juice Plus.
    One of the things I like about this company is when you reach the top position they have a benefits package that includes health insurance. Eileen

  • I work from home for a nationwide health benefits company. Due to the lack of affordable quality healthcare these days, this business is pretty profitable. Info is on my profile and at my website

  • I work from home as a Scentsy consultant. My advice is to determine what you are interested in and get started. Most of the opportunities out there involve sales (even the ones that claim there is no selling involved) so you have to choose something you really enjoy and believe in. Look beyond the money you will make because if you don't believe what you have to offer offers value to others it will not work.

    I've always enjoyed scented candles but stopped burning candles after my daughter was born. I didn't think it was safe. When I found Scentsy I could stand behind the fact that they have flameless candles. Beyond that they have superior products that are actually affordable. People love the option of having no flame candles in their homes and offices. It's easy for me to share it with others because I believe in the system and I believe the prices are right.

    So, find something you can believe it and it will be easy to share. Get started now so you can build a customer base.

    You will need to ask how much it costs to get started and what you get for your investment. Ask what other expenses you may encounter. You want to MAKE money not constantly SPEND money. Expect to reinvest a little but not a lot.

    Find out the various outlets for selling. With Scentsy I can sell online, person-to-person, basket parties, home parties, fairs, expos, etc.

    Good luck!

We have something for everyone and professional training from nutrition to green products. I specialize in custom blend cosmetics which are allowed to be sold and displayed in spas and salons unlike any other at home products.

We partnered with Google which was a first, and we are coming out with the largest online shopping destination.
