  • Do not get into anything unless they tell you exactly what you would be doing, how you will make money, and how much it will cost you. Do not pay for any lists, books, information, etc. Work at home jobs are very rare and you usually have to have an established skill set and experience (fast and accurate typing, proofreading, transcription, etc.). If you don't have experience and/or skill set, the best thing to do is look into a legitimate business opportunity. I'm with a direct sales company and I do make money. Good luck.

  • Be careful with the ads...when checking out a company do your research to make sure this is a real company that way you won't get scammed!

  • I agee... You need to know what you are getting in to. NEVER pay for information but if it's free check it out! Most companies have to do what is called "Blind Advertising" which means they are not alowed to put the company name in the ad. That's the way we are... I have a home business and make great money but I lost tons looking for this opportunity!!!

    I have a journal post about WAH Jobs you may want to check out! As well as checking out and see what you may qualify for. If you are interested in a home business I have a great one and love it! I'm with Ameriplan. Just PM me and I'll send you some info, or you could check out my journals about that too...

  • Work at home jobs are not hard to find, I have a list of them that I will share for free. These are jobs that come with weekly pay checks, training, and actual employment. There is also an interview HR contacts you to fill out paperwork, it's a real job, working at home for places like Disney and LL Bean. Some require a background check and or drug testing. There is no such thing as easy money, you work for your pay, pick your own hours around your kids and you will never get rich quick! lol. Go to or for more information.

  • Try this website: . It has all sorts of ebooks that you can download and look at for way less than you would pay on Amazon and other sites. There are books that show you the secrets to starting and maintaining the most successful home based businesses including auctions like ebay. It's definitely worth it to look.

  • I peronally work for The $60 per hour Profit System, which is a legitimate home-based job. You can make upwards of $500 per day just placing ads on sites like Craigslist and Backpage. There are no costs to get started; in fact, it is completely 100% FREE! All you have to do to get started is go to: Once you are there, you must watch the entire video as it is important to understanding the job requirements. Then, you must scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and fill out your contact info where it says "SIGN UP BELOW!" That is it! You are on your way to making big bucks immediately!
