Does anyone actually have an actual at home job?

One that you actually make money doing? Doesnt cost a rediculous amount of money to start? And gives you a real chance of a decent income? Im not looking to get rich, just looking to bring in a second income and still be able to be a sahm and homeschool my kids... Anything helps. K thanks. :)

  • I do a few things, but PrePaid Legal is my main income source ... I tripled my investment within my first two weeks and quit my part time job within a month. This is a 38 yr old company with a AAA+ rating with the better business bureau and trades on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) .. recently named one of the best home business opportunties. Also, they offer DAILY direct deposit, so you dont have to wait for your money!

    Also do Beachbody - It's a 10 yr old company that sells workout videos and supplements. if you are into healthy living, then this is a great business. P90X, Hip Hop Abs, and Turbo Jam are just a few of our most popular workouts.

    If you want more info about either business just message me.
    Good luck with whatever you choose, just be careful because there are a LOT of scams out there. I know this from personal experience.

  • Yep. But it's not something that just anyone can get involved in. Cost $0 to start up. It's tied in to our business, which is in the ag industry.

  • 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

  • I do not but I have. Personally I hated every moment of it. I was forced to hire a sitter and had to work long hours... There wasn't really any difference from working outside the home. But any JOB will be free, it's businesses that cost money. In most cases you will earn around minimum wage. Which is why I now have a business... But, I have also put together a list of companies that hire home based workers for those of you who would prefer a JOB...
