I have been looking for a home job forever, but every thing I have found online has been a scheme to or for a way for me to get into something I have to pay instead of something for me to do to get paid. Do or shall I say does working from home exist today or is everything just a con to get the little money I have left? HELP a real home work employer!

Hungry mom...

  • Not everything is a scheme. The thing is some people don't understand is the difference between a job and a home business. Most of the time when you start a home business...there is always a cost to get started. There are real jobs out there like chacha and 1800flowers those are jobs and you don't have to pay anything to get started... I am Independent Business Owner with Ameriplan USA. They are a real company...they have been on parents magazine, new york times, american medical and business review with morely safer. It just depends if it is a right fit for you...and what you are looking for! If you are interested check out this webinar at: and if you want to seriously get started request a interview here: I wish you good luck with what you are looking for and have an great night!

  • Stay away from GBG...You have to get several people under you before you make anything. You have to bug your friends and family to buy vitamins. They cost $30 a month...JMO A friedn of mine did it, and was about $8 a month after being involved with it for several months....

  • Try looking at They have all kinds of work at home postings both jobs and opportunities. They also give advice on what to look for and what to avoid. If you click on the telecommuting/Work-at-Home Job Listings link it will take you to the actual job listings. Good luck finding the right fit for you.

  • I have to agree with Businesswife - there is a big difference between a job and a home-based business. If there really were any good "Jobs" online - wouldn't everyone be working from home? In my opinion, you want your own business - make yourself rich instead of someone else!

  • I have two Businesses that I work from home, and yes there is a start up fee. If you look into the tax benefits of having your OWN business it is well worth it! Look at my websites they are both reputable companies.

  • I started doing Avon to supplement my income from home, it has almost doubled my pay in the last 4 months. I do it online, which is a great help since I have a 9 month old baby. If you'd like, look at my website, and see how it works. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me. :) Good luck!

  • I know a little about what you mean. I felt that way for awhile too. I can say that I did find a legitimate buisness that I can run from the comfort of my home, no selling, no inventory! I just want to add now though that it takes a bit of work and motivation! This is NOT a get rich quick opportunity, but a build a lifetime of income idea. If your interested in more details and a chance to see if this might be what you are looking for. check out my website.

The products are awesome and save me a lot of money each month, not to mention the pay plan is great also. The products are environmentally friendly and free of harsh chemicals. (I did not know the most popular baby shampoos and products had formalehyde in it). For more info go to
