  • 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.

  • I would love to share with you my journey with a home based business that has truly changed my family life!!! It brought me home from my corporate job!! It is legit! I was very skeptical at first, but saw how successful others were at the business! We have a single mother of 4 children doing this business and she is an Area Manager and also have a single mother of one who is a vet who works at her clinic 60-70 hours a week and is a regional vice president with this company!! Let me know if you would like to hear more about it honey! hope this helps!

  • Melaleuca has been excellent. It's simply run on referrals. Excellent healthy natural products. if you enjoy them, tell your friends like you would any other product you enjoy. You don't have to deal with any products. Their orders are shipped straight to them. You are simply paid a percentage of their orders. The business has received multiple awards, and is quite valid. Lots of bonuses, etc.

    Good luck. I'm honestly not trying to sell it to you. You can contact me if you'd like. Otherwise, contact the company and they'll plug you in;)

  • No at home work is get rich quick. Most take months before you make any money and require an initial investment. This is because most people who work at home run businesses or do direct sales. Some are writers or freelance designers.

    You're better off looking for telecommuting jobs on the job boards or finding work outside the home unless you have the time and money to devote to going into business.
