Any ideas or suggestions for Working from Home.

I heard its possible to work from home but I've been warned countless times to be careful it could be a scam. Not sure where to look or where to go. I'd like to find something that is "for real" and requires little to No money to start. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated!

  • I have two businesses that can be started from home and they are approved on the Direct Selling Womens Alliance so you know they are legit! The first one is AVON - The Company For Women. That is only $10.00 to start and I have been doing it for a year and I LOVE IT!!!
    The other is Initials, Inc. an Embroidery business and it is a little more expensive to start but the products are AWESOME and SO CUTE!!! You can visit both of my businesses websites: and and feel free to contact me if you would like more information!

  • Ameriplan is looking for new Independent Business Owners. They are running a low sign up special of $25.00 until the end of the month. I just signed up in September and really like it. They offer great benefits and in this time of layoffs and economic instability, I just can't see selling anything. Who wants to buy make-up and vitamins when they don't even have medical coverage? Please PM me if you are interested. You can also check out my website:

  • Hey there I can offer you some advice:) There is a difference between a work from home JOB and a work from home BUSINESS. There are very few legit wah jobs that will pay you anything decent. NEVER pay anything for a wah job!! If they ask..RUN it is a scam! However, there are many wah businesses that are legit and real where your income potential is unlimited! With any business there will be an investment to be made...that is normal:)) I chose a home business with Ameriplan and I really LOVE what I do! I help people SAVE money and help people make money! I invite you to come check out my profile, read my journal entries and please ask me any questions that you have as I have lots of answers:)

  • I have done a lot of research in the work from home area. Most of what I found were places that you had to pay for information or pay to get a start up kit but then was left with no help to get the business started. Look at my Ehow article for all the companies I found that did not require a start up fee or require you to purchase a book. Hope it helps!!!!!
