  • There are some jobs where you can make telemarketing calls or accept inbound calls from customers.. I am not sure of the companies names off the top of my head, but you can google it maybe. The only problem is you must have 100 percent complete silence when working.. So no kiddos in the background crying and such..

  • I work two at home business and yes they both work I have received checks from both places its just a matter of how much you want to do as to how much you will get paid. I work as a gift/flower basket consultant for LaBella Baskets. I get paid every two weeks without fail. It is $19.95 a month with that you get your own website actually two a referall site and a marketing site, 200 free leads, a training website and your own mentor. EVERYTHING you do is from your computer so It's really easy to work. my website is please check it out and let me know if you have any questions. The second one is I am an Independent Distributor for The Gourmet Cupboard. There are no up front costs to get started. The products are very low cost and easy to sell since they are food and people will justify spending money on that cause everyone needs to eat right?? website is pm me

  • Do a search on the job boards for telecommuting jobs. There aren't many work-at-home jobs out there. What you'll find primarily is business opportunities and scams.

  • 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 three lines of business; I am doing lead generation for a sales and service organization; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching

  • As stated you have WAH jobs and then WAH business. So it really depends on what your needs are and what you are looking for. I have a home business because I needed the flexibility and I wanted the freedom to have control over what I did and made. Just ask lots of questions and be careful. Never pay for a job(business will have costs), make sure there is a product or service being offered, check the companies credentials, etc...
