  • I've been wondering the same thing. My Hubby says to just forget those things, if I want to work then go fill out an application and get a job. But if not then I continue to help him from home.

  • I have never found a legit one. My friend used to answer phone calls from her home. She worked for Pizza Hut and some other places. She had some crazy ass hours though.

  • Dave Ramsay says that the only legitimate work at home jobs he's heard of are the transcription ones (medical/legal). I personally have never found anything.

  • Hello, I work with a few sites online to make some extra cash. When I first got started I thought that they were all scams as well. I even paid for a few programs that didn't deliver as promised. Hard earned money down the drain. Until I started trying survey sites I was skeptical at first until I got my first pay from the three sites I use. Its been nice earning some extra cash at home. A lot of member with these sites use the money they earn free to fund startup costs with other more lucrative work at home opportunities. You can check out the sites I use here.  My favorite is Fusion Cash  They have an A+ rating with the BBB and have been around several years

  • yes there are work from home "jobs" but they are far and few between. If you have what it takes to work from home as a "JOB" then you have what it takes to start your own business as a sub-contractor. Its much easier and less riskier. Im in Marketing and I get ask that question alot. I also have a blog (lacyjonescasual) which I just started so I could answer such questions. There are alot of pros & cons with both jobs & businesses that work from home. They are out there. They are real.

  • There are jobs, but in order to make a full time income you have to be willing to do more than just one. e.g.; Article Writing, CSR etc. There are companies that hire At- Home- Workers, I've listed a few on my blog.
