  • There are professions that allow you to work from home but it requires schooling and training.

  • I haven't found any legitimate work at home jobs, but I have found legitimate home business opportunities. They all require some start up costs which range from $10 - $500. I do PrePaid Legal which has been very good for me.

    There are several out there, just be careful because there are A LOT of scams out there as well. If you would like info on what I do please message me. Good luck!

  • yes there is but it takes dedication to make your buisness grow if you expect to make money right off the bat without putting time and energy you will not make it. I know because I sell Avon and have seen both sides....I make money when I dedicate myhself to it and when I don't nothing happends so its all up to you.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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 and job search coaching

  • Good Morning girl :-)
    There ARE options out there. Don't listen to all those who tell you otherwise. It's usually because they tried something and it didn't personally work for them. You can go to and there is a telecommuting folder that always has great leads on it. You can also post questions on there about ones you find to see what others exp has been with a particuar company. I have a home business but I do know that there are jobs out there as well. They are harder to find and you have to go through the interview/application process but they are out there!!

  • Yes, there are some real ones out there. Never pay for a "job", and never give out your credit card information to anyone unless you are 100% possitive it's a legit company (Avon, etc). I have some free jobs listed at Earn Money Online
