I need help working from home!!!!

Does anyone work from home in any home-based business where they are actually earning a sizable income that's able to support a family? I really want to help relieve the financial burden from my husband's shoulders, but don't know what to do. I have come across so many scam opportunities, or those that require large monthly autoships, etc. Can anyone honestly recommend a legitimate, maybe even fun, home business? I'm not into candle-making, jewelry parties, Herbalife, or Melaleuca. Have tried all of those! Thanks to all who respond! :-)

  • I used to work from home as an account executive for a medical appliance company but I also had to travel about 40% of the time. I made a base of $70K plus commission and car the end of the year I was usually at about $130K (some years better and some worse). Have you looked in the pharmaceutical sales?

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? 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 around the Midwest. 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 & job search coaching

  • I just started using this website called I watch tv commercials on the site. It is totally free and it just launched. I watched 15 commercials from 15 sec to 1 min long. I have not gotten any cash from it yet but I figured what the heck I sitting in front of the computer all day anyway why not try this and see if it works. It really costs nothing to join and watch. I have never put my credit card info or any bank info on the site. They pay you through paypal. Just thought you might want to try it. Here is my link. If you join my village I get money when you watch commercials too, and when you sponser people you make money when they watch. It is a really cool idea... wish I had thought of it. Just try it! I had nothing to lose, any little bit helps when you are out of work like I am
