I need honest answers please! Looking for wah opportunites - zero investment!

Are there any work at home opportunities that DO NOT cost anything to get started? I'm looking for jobs or businesses. I also do not want anything that involves selling.

I would like to hear from those of you that are ACTUALLY making money!

  • Any Business, even one that says "without investment" is going to cost something. That's how businesses work. But a job should never cost you a dime. I make a great income, but I put a good bit in to my business too... I would be happy to provide that info, but seeing as how you want a No-investment opp., I'll leave it up to you. If you would like to know what I do, you can listen to the audio at

    Otherwise, I have put together a list of companies that hire home based employees. These are ALL JOBS, and none of them will cost you to get involved, although a few require that you cover the cost of your background check...

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? 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 & job search coaching.
