I need to make some money. I am broke.

Not selling things but maybe with surveys or looking at other sites or creating powerpoint documents, word documents . It must be legitimate and it has to be something I can do part time from home whenever I want to work. I am a mom of three and will be attending school. HELP! Need extra cash for the summer and I have to start saving up for it now.

  • I was in a situation where I had to make some extra income for a few months to pay off a debt. I couldn’t invest any money to start any of the work at home sites. So I had to search out the free ones. I found some really good ones, and some really bad ones. Now I paid off (almost) the debt but I’m going to keep going with it because I think it can be a really good way to start saving some money. Last month alone, I made over $1600. So, if you’re looking, it’s free, you have nothing to lose, you should go to

  • Reality is!!! Don't want to sound mean or negative, however, in this economy and the limitations that you are setting on what you are willing to do, you will find it very difficult to find something.

  • - Determine if you are looking for a JOB or a BUSINESS -- there is a distinct difference between the two and you want to focus your energies appropriately for the best results.

    - If looking for a JOB, what are your marketable skills and previous experiences? If you are looking for a BUSINESS, go with your passions, things that interest and motivate you the most. Build a list and use that to begin your search. General rule of thumb: Never pay for a job (businesses, on the other hand, usually involve some expenses).

    - Review your budget -- know ahead of time what you are willing and able to invest into your business, including start-up costs and ongoing maintenance and promotion.

    - Find a rep to contact, check out their websites, ask questions, do your own independent research.
