  • I haven't found anything. I can email you a couple of things that I do if you are interested to earn a few extra bucks a month.

  • I agree with Peggs11! That site usually has tons. Just be sure to do your research though because there are so many scams out there! :o)

    Good Luck in your search :o)

  • Start up fees are for starting your own business, not a job. If it's labeled as a "job" then it's a scam. "Jobs" with a paycheck are hard to come by when you want to work at home....most that do that are well established with their company and given the opportunity after proving their work ethic and capabilities to their boss for several years.

  • 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

  • Not that I am aware of. Any business opportunity is going to have some start up fee. I am a Rep with Juice Plus, I pay $50 a year to maintain my business. Pretty resonable.

  • It's very hard to find a legit job these days online. You have to be careful of scams.
    I'm a git baskets consultant for La Bella Baskets and it's very affordable. :-)
    I do get paid every 2 weeks and it's a business which is a start up, but it's nice because you get to jump start your own business for $1.97 for 7 days and after try it for $19.95 a month. I love it!:-)
