  • This question gets asked several times a day. Reality is at home "jobs" are not easily found....most that have a job they work from home worked in the office for years and proved themselves to be reliable and able to work from home. The majority of us here, that work from home do so by having our own business.....whether you babysit, run errands, sell on ebay or are an independent rep for a direct selling company.

    Jobs are scare in the workplace and at home. The best bet is to start some sort of business....what you choose to do or sell should reflect your own hobbies and interests. I'm personally a beachbody coach selling workout systems such as P90X, Insanity, TurboFire and supplements, and motivating and coaching people on their journey to get fit. It's what I enjoy, it's what I love, so for me it's a good match.

    Research ones you might like. If interested there are videos on my site:

  • The ones I have seen and tried I barely made anything at all and half the time I got a bunch of spam or you would have to pay $200 just to get started which to me seemed stupid. If i am going to pay that much I would rather buy a starter kit from a home business company. I decided after trying different direct sales to go with Dove Chocolate Discoveries and I feel it was my best decision yet. Hope you can find something that will help. If not I am here for any questions.

  • I am an independent rep. it cost $200 hundred to start, $99 goes to owning the business for 1 year, $99 to website and training. I had a cafe and my overhead far exceeded this business expense. I like what I do because I help other people, I also don't handle shipping or products/services, or payment for either. My business is to make connections with people and help them. I too didn't like the idea of forking over money to start making money, I researched this Rep. business & the monthly web fee is so small & training is continuously available. I am not a sales person so not carrying inventory and not going to friends and family for customers is important to me. All I need is my website!!

  • I blog about work at home ideas and opportunities.  You are more than welcome to read through my blog when you have time at Mavi's Home Work.

  • I so agree with the first post. The are rare and most do not pay enough for you to stay home. After a year of searching, I put my time and effort into a business. At least you know you will get money from it. Otherwise, you need to do something like a home daycare or something like that.

    I do highly suggest Scentsy though. Me and my entire team have been doing great with it.
