What are some real work at home jobs?

Im working from home now as a part time nanny, but I need some extra income. What are some other real work from home jobs?

By googling I found a ton of scams. I need something that is real, makes some decent money, and has NO start up cost. Thanks. If you suggest a company or idea could you please tell me your experience with it?

  • 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

  • You can find lots of good ideas and information for work at home and home-based potentials in my Blog:  Home Work.

    If you are looking to supplement your current nanny position, you could also try selling on eBay.  I have actually made the most money of any of my work at home jobs from eBay.  You can start selling what you have around your home and then see how that goes.
