  • I used to work for West at Home. It only pays I think, $7.50/hour, at least it did when I worked for them. You pick your own hours so it is pretty convienitent. You would be taking orders from infomercials. So basically someone would call (for whatever product because there were several) and your computer screen would populae with the words to say so you only had to follow prompts. It was easy. There is another position called PALS (If I remember right) that pays a little more and they manage the call reps. Good luck!

  • Thanks for replying I will have to try West at home again and PALS I have not heard of them before. It just seems like I am applying and applying but no call backs. Its so frustrating!!

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with small business marketing and medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.

  • Ive had my home based Biz for nearly 2 yrs now and I was able to replace my FT income in 6 mos. I have been making a FT income with about 20 hours a week since!
    I am a SAHM of 3 and I do absolutely do all the mom things, school, activities, playdates etc.
    We receive Daily Direct Deposits.....we have ZERO products at all and we have no parties or anything either to worry about.

    I work 99% of my Biz right online, so I can literally take it anywhere with me anytime.

    Im lookig for 2 more candidates to receive the Biz From me TODAY for FREE, which makes getting one started NEARLY FREE!!

  • It doesn't get anymore risk free than in home daycare. You set the price, hours, number of kids, etc.
