  • Where did you start looking and how could you tell the difference between scams?

  • With a job you get paid a paycheck and you are an employee... there should be no start up costs and no ordering of anything. An at home business is something that you have to give money for something, supplies etc.

    A friend of mine is a medical transcriptionist from home, she worked in an office before she got pregnant and it now at home with her kiddos working 15-20 hours per week.

  • wow crazy how she asked about jobs not home businesses and not direct sales.. there are actual jobs out there. my company has verified many of them and posted them to one site trying to help moms work from home. We have staff on call 12 hours a day if you have any questions about the info provided on the site or questions you may have about the business or job. feel free to look and see if we have anything that may interest you

  • If you find anything, let me know ;)

  • Any direct selling business isn't a scam, but just because you pay to join and hear lots of women doing wonderful with it doesn't guarantee you'll earn anything, neither does the hours you put in.

    Unless you are hired by a real Brick and Mortar company that allows you to work from home and they send you a paycheck for your work there is NO such things as guarantees.

    I sell on ebay, and have done so for 10 years, but even if list 100 things a week that does't mean i'll sell 100 things a week, or that they will get multiple bids. Some weeks I don't post as much, if anything, other weeksI post a lot. Just like some weeks i'll make $50 on profit, other weeks $300, some weeks zero.

  • I work for an actual company, but I worked in the office for 11 years before they sent me home to work 1 year ago. It is great, but I still cannot keep my kids at home because I have production to meet. I have a flexible schedule (with in reason). and there are lots of perks, but I still have to pay for daycare, I just get to work in my Pjs all day.
