  • If there were legitmate work from home jobs many more of us would be doing that. They are all scams and none of them make you any money.

  • Yeah everyday at least 5 ladies post to this particular board saying they need a work at home JOB. They are so few and far between that well.....the short answer is: you aren't going to find one. If you do, you're one of the rare lucky ones.

    Most of those that work from home don't earn a "paycheck" but they either started their own business, whether it's babysitting, running errands, writing articles, photography, DH and I own a Carpet Cleaning business and run it from home.....or they went with a direct selling company. These of course cost money to start up as any business will.

  • I want one too, there are some, like selling Avon? I've started to do surveys online, I don't exactly make a living from it! It's like £1 per survey, but I do know there MUST be jobs from home, start up your own business, set up a dating website maybe?

  • If you want a JOB you need the right skills. There are companies who employ appointment setters and data entry positions, medical coding, medical/legal transcription...
    You need skills, the proper equipment, and solid blocks of time where you can work uninterrupted in a quiet environment.

  • Dont you love getting told off for asking a question? I think that Mom2Jack04 is right 100%. I am a photographer. Maybe try to find soemthing you enjoy doing and sell it on Etsy. Or something along those lines. We took our tax return and bought what i needed for my was a good bit of money but I have made it all back already.

  • if you want a work from home job you have to work for it. ONE: either find a corporation that will allow you to do secretarial work from home (you typically need a home office, and experience at least, plus a lot of companies want you in the office at least one day a week, and will typically start you off in the office to work before allowing you to work from home until they are comfortable with you in their company).

    Two: apply for a day care license. You'll need to check out your state for mandatory needs to start this.

    Three: start your own business. This requires money upfront and the proper licenses too.

    Four: babysit (check with local state laws to see their laws for babysitting vs day care so you don't over step the legal limits and boundaries).

    Try a cosmetology school: They offer a lot of options for setting up business at home. From waxing, or hairstylist, to pedicurists, to facial specialst.

  • six: go back to school for something you love and apply it to a business you can run from your home.. although I suggest a business management minor minimum as well.

    Those realy are your only options besides ebay auctions, and dealing with scammers online, or businesses like mary kay etc.
