I really need to work at home right now to be available for my at risk teen. Are there any legitimate at home jobs out there that don't require a scandalous fee?? I am very efficient at anything I do and just need to know which direction to turn. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have internet access, a strong work ethic, and for years have dabbled in a small cleaning business. I just can't afford to have the " go when the job calls attitude" right now. My son requires 24 hour supervision at this time and I need to be there for him. I love working on the computer and know in my heart of hearts that there has to be some legitimate opportunities out there. I just don't know where to look.

  • I started looking online for stuff I could do from home and found some great places. I have made a list of places that I have used (only free ones), I know they're all legit because I don’t list them until I've been paid by them. I do have survey sites listed; only the ones that I know for sure work. I also have 2 drop shippers listed, one is Ebay Certified and it works flawlessly. I’ve had great success with it. Nothing to lose by looking, it’s free to get started. You can see my list and details on these places at

  • I am working with Ameriplan, and I love it. It is flexible and they have a great training program. The fee to start is $25.00 until the end of the month. It is absolutely worth it. If you are looking for a JOB instead of a business/ career, then try Lots of people are looking for at home jobs though and they are getting harder to land. With Ameriplan, you have more flexibility and more chance for growth and success. PM me if you have any questions. Good Luck.

  • Consider a home based business, and if you want to make money right away, you need to be in one that is in the 2 largest emerging industries...wellness and network marketing. With this economy, no one is spending their money on makeup, tupperware or candles...people these days are into their health and want to earn extra income and fast. The business I am in has been in biz for 3.5 years and has been featured in SUCCESS FROM HOME magazine 3 times in the ENTIRE issues...this is the first co. to reach its first billion dollars in just 3 years...first in the history of the US. it took microsoft 7 years. This is still a ground floor opportunity as less than 1% of the US has heard of it.. a great opportunity is one when not too many people know about it. I would love to share what i do from home around my kids schedules and make really GREAT money. I hope to hear from you soon.
