  • If you are looking for the security of a weekly paycheck at home the answer is YES. Unlike multi level marketing where you have to pay to work there, work at home jobs are like any other job - but with better benefits. You get to make your own hours, you don't have to sell, you don't have to push products on your friends and family, you don't have to build a team and best of all you receive pay for the first hour you work and every hour there after. There are many out there too. West at Home, Staff at Home, Overflow. CM doesn't allow enough room to post them all. Go to Works4Mom.com and click REAL Work @ Home Jobs for a complete list. NO Scams, NO MLM, NO Fees, NO Affiliates - just REAL JOBS.

  • You might be able to find something that doesn't require a start-up but it will not pay very much. I chose the home business route because I wanted to be my own boss and have unlimited earning potential.I would love to help you. Visit my profile page and pm me with questions.

  • I have to say that from my experience the answer is a big NO. Its that old rule of thimb about getting something for nothing. I have tried many things so that I could stay out of thw workplace and be home with my kids. What I have found is that, for FREE you can stuff enelopes for little pay (ten-cents-per envelope) or set appointments and get paid only of the appointment holds. I left corporate America recently and started a home-based business for very little money and its going great. This is my second time around but I have learned that nothing worth doing and having is for free.

  • I agree with the other posters. We have got to realize you can't get something for nothing. I was where you were and wanting to not have to pay for anything because I didn't have anything. But like the other ladies I too realized if I wanted to stop depending on a "job" and chasing the dollar that I needed to become my own boss. There are many serious businesses you can do from home that can pay you more than you ever made in your life. You must educate yourself so you will know what fits you! My husband put together a website where it doesn't talk about our Business but show videos to help you educate yourself to see why you need to be in business for yourself. It's free and you just put you email and watch the videos from your computer. It's www.hilliardgroup.net We wish you well. If you need more info or help finding what will work just let me know.

  • Companies that want to take money from you, will have you do this. Its a risk and if you don't have money to start up and there is no guarantee that you will make that money back, then who really wins in this game? I personally have fallen into the many traps out there until I found an awesome company with no start up fee AND they truly care about their employees every step of the way.
    As a Woobie Wear Sales Representative, you would be responsible for contacting local children's boutiques, gift shops or baby stores in your area, presenting the Woobie Wear line to them and processing orders via e mail to us. We handle the rest from there.
    You can visit stores in person and/OR market via the internet *RIGHT FROM HOME*! This is a perfect opportunity for any mom to work from home at your own pace. You get paid when a client places an order without any pressure or sales quotas to meet.

  • If you have to pay for a job, don't do it! If it's a Home Business, where you are the Boss, then yes! Be careful. Check out my profile if you would like to see if you might like what I do:)
