  • Because they are all scams....

  • Because it takes investing in equipment, drug screens, background checks etc for a legit employer to hire you, and if you want the convenience of working at home, you must put that money out up front.

    Or, if you are trying to start a work at home business in which you sell another company's product, they have to send you a kit, product, set up a website, send business materials, train you have to pay for the materials.

  • I have lots of ideas and opportunities in my Blog:  Mavi's Home Work.  Maybe you can find something there.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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.. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization, I also do career and job search coaching; additionally, I handle the business end of my spouse's business, and do medical billing and coding one day a week for one of my bookkeeping clients.

  • Start up fees usually cover the supplies you need to get started. Do your research to be sure the company is legit, not all of them are scams. Talk to the company, other individuals doing the business and research the products. I am a Rep with Juice Plus. I tried other companies and they were a pain in the butt to work with. I needed somethingto do from home and Juice Plus sort of found me. I love the products, the people, the company and the income.
    Let me know if you would like more about Juice Plus and the company behind the product.

  • Most are at home businesses. Like Scentsy is $99 to start but they give you a lot in their kit. You can't expect to open a McDonalds without paying money.
