  • I know you said you don't want to sell anything, but have you heard of Meleleuca? They are absolutely amazing! To be honest, I was very skeptical in the beginning, but now that I am using the products I think they sell themselves. It's 29 for a membership, it's safe for kids and great on the environment (most things are biodegradable). Here's the website if you want to check them out I hope this helps!

  • A "job" shouldn't cost you anything to start up. Usually start up fees are with different business opportunities which you don't want. You could try freelance writing, customer service (there are companies that will let you do it at home), medical transcription, babysitting.

    Meleleuca is not that great and you end up with a lot of stuff you could make or buy cheaper elswhere....

  • I would like to add that in my experience home jobs are few and far between. In addition, you will still be an employee, meaning that you will probably have to be on the phone (for example, as customer service rep) a certain number of hours in certain time slots each day, etc. For me, that wouldn't work since I have three kids and they would have to go to after school care so I could have a quite house for my job. I might as well be working out of the house. When you have your own business you have a lot more freedom. You get to work when you want and in most cases the sky is the limit regarding your income. YES, there will be a start up cost, but every business costs money to run whether it's a brick and mortar business or an online business. Home businesses aren't for everyone, but if it's freedom you're looking for, then it may be a better fit for you.

  • In general Anon, that's JOB.. not an at home business. If you were starting up your business from home, could you do it for free? Cost of a building, supplies, how about the schooling/training so you can do what you want. If it's a job she wants there are very few free ones. But, if you are looking for a be your own boss business and earn the big bucks, you should make sure it's something you will LOVE. If you are looking to warn a 6 figure income yearly send me a message!

  • Im not trying to be a smart azz here but PSO's make good money (if your with the right company & you are open minded. Its very controversial and NOT a brag about job for church... :-/ ) but it sounds like the hours and the intent that this type of job offers meets your critieria. Im not trying to make you or any one else mad...just saying and throwing out the idea, thats all.

  • I know an at home business will have start up costs...that's what I said. A legit at home job shouldn't cost anything but a business opportunity (which the OP doesn't seem interested in) would have start up fees. Re-read what I wrote :)

  • If you are looking for a job at home, there should never be a start up cost. A home business, yes, but NEVER a job. If you are interested in a home based business, you could start for just $49.95 a month and that is for your website, online office and all the training, including one on one training daily, and also includes all of the services that you would offer to your customers. A pretty amazing company with all the extras included. Take a look for yourself...
