  • Well first thing you need to know about working from home is that it costs money to start. No matter what it is you try to do, but there are plenty of jobs you can do from home.

    -Legal transcriptioning
    -Medical Transcriptioning
    -Home Business
    *You can start sellilng baby items on eBay
    -Massage Therapy
    -Administrative Work Online

    Just remember alot of these require training and or money. Just as they take taxes out of your paycheck if it were an outside job.

  • Unfortunately, most "jobs" like what you're looking for are scams. I looked for a long time, only to find out that it was a waste of my time. I work from home and I love it! It's not a job, it's a business. We have a very low start up cost. The great thing about owning your own business is that you have a lot of tax write offs!! I am a stay at home Mommy to my 3½ year old son, and 2 year old daughter. I work with a great team of Moms; we help each other create income from home. No parties, No inventory! Weekly pay! Free website, training, and unlimited support!!
    I would love to give you more information and help you reach your financial goals!

  • 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 blog about work at home ideas and opportunties.  There are a lot of things available out there, but for every one job advertised, there are literally thousands of applicants.  Be creative and think outside the box, that is the key.  You need to find something to do that no one else in your area is doing.  You are more than welcome to read my blog if you'd like at Mavi's Home Work.
