  • Hey Girl I know the feeling, it's everywhere LOL.
    I have a home business with Ameriplan. Something that stuck out to me when I saw the advertisement before I joined was that their benefit plans are accepted at Target, WalMart, Walgreens, Disney and so many more Large Companies. Now you know that Target is not going to risk their rep by accepting a company that wasn't legit. So that is what got me interested :-)

    I would be more than happy to talk with you and get you some info to see if this would work for you. Just let me know :-)

    God Bless!!

  • A lot of companies ask you to pay $$$ to receive information about getting a job. Those are SCAMS!!!!! If you are looking to start up a business they will usually require you to purchase a kit but at least you are getting products in return for your money. I work at home with Tupperware. Good luck on your search.

  • It depends what you're looking for. There are many jobs out there, unfortunately I never found one that worked for me. I also tried a couple of other things like selling Avon and personalized CDs. Neither of which worked for me. I work from home, however it's not a job it's a business. I am a stay at home Mom to a 2 ½ year old and 1 year old. I work with a great team of Moms; we help each other create income from home. No parties, No inventory! Weekly pay! FREE website, training, and unlimited support!!
    I would love to give you more information and help you reach your financial goals!

    This is what I do from home. It has made me money. It's fun, easy, and I haven't met anyone yet who didn't love it. Scentsy is a great company!!! The only startup cost is for the kit that gives you everything you need for your business. If you'd like to check it out, and if you have any questions, or just want more details...just let me know.

  • I know that you nees to do your resurch and find a company that pays you for selling a service or product. But most of all to be sucessfull you need to do something that you are proud to represent. That may be jewelry, educational toys, candles, cleaning products...whatever, you have to be convinced that you are providing something that will improve their lives.
