  • I wish I knew! I know alot of businesses offer money-making at home but I haven't heard much about the ones that "really work" or aren't a rip-off of some kind or other.
    I also would like to do something from home. My kids are nearly grown and I have more time now.
    I'm thinking seriously about taking a course on Medical Transcription.
    Would that be something you might be interested in? You could actually work full-time from home. Many do!
    Just a thought to pass along.
    I went to and just requested by mail-info. They will call almost immediately but I just told them to let me look at the info first and then I would be willing to talk to someone further. Good Luck to You!

  • Be Careful with Transcription, A LOT of them are becoming obsolete, as they are digitally outsourcing andthe courses are not cheap.
    As well I hear that Many offices want you to work in-house before moving out, those are the ones that pay well too.

    I have the most legitimate home based business with no products or parties, i only work 20 hours a week..I make a generous FT income between 1500-5 K a month ...GREAT now that school is out!
    Prepaid Legal Services is something that EVERYONE needs and is seriously looing for!

  • I am involved with Vault Denim as a fashion consultant. There is no inventory to buy, and the company provides training. You can look at my website


    Interested in becoming a Vault Denim Fashion Consultant?

    No inventory to purchase. No Overhead! How Great is that??

    Here is how it works!

    Regional Directors or coordinators will have all the inventory jeans ON HAND for you to check out, like a library system, to take to your parties! If you sell them, you’ll receive your commission on the 15th or 30th of the month; If you don’t sell them, you return the jeans to her until your next party! It’s that simple!

    If you are interested, or have questions, email me at

    Good luck with your job hunt!

  • I'm sorry for your loss. What kind of things are you looking to do online? I just got started with Skinny Body Care and it's going great! My upline(and good friend of mine) is making about $800 a month...doesn't sound like much, but she got started VERY part time and not too long ago she was able to quit her parttime job. Check out my 5 min video...
