  • Those data entry and assembly jobs are scams. The best way to get a data enty job is to talk to an office and see if they need that service provided. As for assembly, if it is not perfect, which it never be, you will not get paid. So, you need to do more searching. Maybe u should try to get a telecommuting customer service job. These are hard to get, but you can try. Please don't allow yourself to get scammed by data entry or assembly.

  • call or go to a few banks and ask if they have anything available to where you can stuff or label envelopes. if you do it fast enough, you could make descent money. but it was several years ago that i did it, so check into it if it sounds appealing

  • Hello,

    I am a work at home wife and mother.  My husband and I are home based travel agents if you are interested in that.  Message me if you are.

  • Medical transcription! I do it full time, I am an employee of a hospital with full benifits and all the bells and whistles. It does take some school, but you can do that online too. I can PM you details if you want.

  • I agree that the data entry jobs and stuffing envelope jobs are scams. They will likely ask you to purchase a list. You should never pay anything when trying to get a job. Check out the telecommuting message board over at

  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!
    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.
    I had searched for a work at home job for two years. This had proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I'd come across were scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.
    I am so lucky to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!

  • Really research before you start anything. I have two home based businesses. If you have some administrative skills you might be interested in becoming a virtual assistant ( I also sell candles with Gold Canyon and that is fun and you don’t have to only do home parties to make money. You can do craft shows, catalog parties and web sales ( Good luck finding something that is a good fit for you.
