  • 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 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 (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.

  • I work from home with Internet CEO Moms. I'm not sure if you are open to the idea of a home based business, but it has worked out really great for me. We don't have to have parties, keep inventory or deliver any products. If you would like free info just go to my website:

    Good Luck!

  • I work from home as a Juice Plus Rep. I do occationally schedule Wellness Presentations, but most of my work is word of mouth and social networking. I make decent money and I love the product and the business. I do it in my spare time and it fits into my schedule so I have all the time I want with my family.

  • You're right, those are scams. No legit job will make you pay for work. I would suggest you check out your local job boards for telecommuting jobs or freelance jobs. Remember, real at home jobs are rare and competition is fierce.
