Is anyone having any success with their at home job?

I have failed at many different businesses and they have failed me. Am I alone? And, after being burned are you still looking?

  • Yes! But it's one I created. I worked for at-home companies before and didn't do well with them.

  • I have a home based business and it's going great. I don't know what you tried but I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. Finding the right company and support goes a long way to being successful. Good luck!

  • I was doing call center work at home. I also did medical transcription. My problem was, I hated being cooped in my house all day. It's very lonely and very isolating.....

  • I work from home and I love it! It's not a job, it's a business. My income is continuing to grow month after month. I tried a few things in the past, like Avon, selling personalized CDs for Children, surveys, and even Mystery Shopping. Nothing worked for our Family's needs. 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! We have free training, and unlimited support!!
    I would love to give you more information and help you reach your financial goals!

  • I work from home and I love my business. I have had my up's and down's. I have always heard when you work for yourself, the high's are higher and the low's are lower.... Not sure what you have been in before but it really helps if you love the product already and it is consumable. I have been using my product since I was 13 years old and have been a consultant since I was 18 years old. I love the product and helping other women.
    Would love to answer any questions you may have about my business. Feel free to PM me :) Don't give up! There is something out there for you.

  • No, you are definitely not alone! I have tried many and been burned by many .. FINALLY found THE ONE last year and it's worked out great for me! Legitimate company, very solid and has been around a long time, trades on NYSE and has an A+ rating with the BBB.

    Instead of giving up, I did my research and took a chance ... so glad I did because this is it for me!

    I have some great support and mentors which is important. Lots of folks get you started, then leave you hanging, but that isn't the case with my business .. and that has made a world of difference !
