Is there a work from home job that actually works?

No scams, That doesnt require a high school deploma, or any upfront money? I really need to find a way to get some income. :(

  • you could babysit like kids that need somewhere to go after school for a little while... or maybe start making things and try selling them to local small shops...

    There is a cost for your start up kit. But it's well worth it!! I've made some really good money with Scentsy.

    You could also check out you basically answer calls from home for different companies. They pay for training time as well.

  • Honestly I've tried just about everything and the only ones you don't lose money at or that aren't a complete hassle are the ones where you work for yourself.
    Ideas like babysitting, nannying, cleaning houses or offices, arts and crafts fairs etc are where you'll make money without losing any in the process.

  • Just cause anonymous was not successful it doesnt mean you cant, if you are not successful its because you really didnt want it.

    Something that makes very good money is Gold Parties. Host a party and get paid for the total revenue of cash brought to your party on the spot that same day!

    This is free to do, most parties bring about $5000 average that means you would get $500 for an hour of two of just hosting.

  • I have made over $26,000 but it is up to the individual person if they are determined to make their home business work. It takes a lot of time to build a successful business. You have to be consistent too! And you do have to work. Some people don't seem to understand that part!

  • Passion Parties offers a unique and exciting opportunity to be your own boss as "women helping women"!!! I am ALWAYS looking for more consultants to add to our team and bring Passion back into relationships. The people I'm looking for have 3 main qualities: they are team players, self-motivated, and dependable. Most importantly, they are SERIOUS about building a business and making money. Luckily, they will also have more fun and get more satsifaction from this business than they ever imagined.
