  • Hi. My name is Lisa and I'm a stay at home mom to two wonderful children, ages 2 and 6. They keep me busy, but I love every minute of it!

    I wasn't always a stay at home mom, however. Before having my second child, I had a great job that paid me well enough that I could afford childcare. But after having my second child, my income couldn't justify the cost of childcare any longer.

    I have been searching for a work at home job for the past two years. This has proven very difficult to find, as most advertisements I've come across have been scams! That was until I saw an ad on a car that was parked at the zoo. I visited the website and requested more information.

    I am so lucky to have found this wonderful opportunity to work from home with my kids by my side. Not only have I found a legitimate work at home job, but it has also helped me go GREEN and earn GREEN while doing it. Let me help you do the same!

  • Kat, I just started in this business and am so excited about the unique, awarded company that has allowed many like us to achieve just what you are looking for! My husband is a business owner and I know that has taken more that full time to run and then everything goes back into the business. I've been in pharmaceutical sales working 6 days a week and whew! Just can't do it anymore!

    So, after loosing over 4K in MLM and trying several, I have finally found this company that is based upon safer, less expensive products everyone uses, has a 94% reorder rate, and you don't have to inventory, do home parties, put up a bunch of cash to begin. All you have to do is change where you shop...and tell other people to do the same!

    Come check out my website and join a winning team of professional, at home people who are making their dreams come true without the scam! www.greenathome.info

  • There is a difference between a work at home"job" and a business. If you are looking for a legit business, there are several. If you are interested, I can tell you about mine. I have been working from home for 15 years now (since I was 18 years old).
    Feel free to contact me.

  • First figure out if you want a WAH job or a WAH business. WAH Jobs do not require up front fees, you have an employer and do the work at home. Check out Monster.com and CareerBuilders.com for WAH Jobs. WAH business however DO require startup costs. Its perfectly legit...you cant open a Dunkin Donuts without buying the donuts, same with your WAH business. The only time it is a scam is if someone places an ad for a WAH Job and requires money up front.

  • I have found a legitimate company that I have fell in love with. I market a product that is 19 fruits in a bottle and changes people's lives! I make money every week and have only worked on a very part time basis. Several of my friends have became totally financially free doing this in less than 2 years, they are teaching me exactly what they have done. You can contact me at cashflowmom@yahoo.com if you have any interest.
