How can I make money at home w/o being scammed???

I'm almost six months pregnant and have not been able to find work. It's gonna be even harder to find as I get bigger and even when the baby is born. DH works but we need more income!!!
I am willing to work from home but everthing seems like a scam!

  • Honestly, I've done Tupperware (wasn't a fan, it was to expensive), Home and Garden (it's Celebrating Homes now, they bought out Home Interior), Avon, and Pampered favorite out of all of them was Home and Garden, yes they want a start up price, yes they tell you that you can't do certain things certain ways....but it was good money. I now run my own home based bakery. Find something that you are good at and you like doing, and turn it into cash...feel free to email me if you want to talk.

  • You can sell on eBay.  That's an excellent and easy way to make money from home.  You can also babysit, elder care sit, pet sit, do an errand service, etc.  I blog about opportunities and ideas such as the afore-mentioned.  You are more than welcome to read through my blog at Mavi's Home Work.

  • Make sure that they are fully backed. I work with a company that has been in business for almost 40 years now. They are A+ rated with the BBB and are one of the top 100 small businesses in America in the FORBES magazine. Also, the chamber of commerce has personally recognized this business. They are also exchanged in the New York Stock Exchange. And the best part, you don't have to stock or do direct sales. I would not have joined otherwise!

  • 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 and small business marketing), I also do career and job search coaching.
