I really want to work from home but I am not sure what is all a hoax and what is actaully legit. Please help me figure this all out and let me know which ones truly are real.

First off...I know someone will say that no real work from home job will have a start up fee. Whereas that is "true" to a degree, you do have a start up fee. Most places need you to have a high speed internet, with a dedicated land line, a head set that you can mute and a quiet work space.

You will be expected to purchase those items and have them set up at your cost. So in essence you do have a "start up fee" technically.

I know of a few places, there is a site called Momcorps that I've read a lot about.

Aside from that I honestly don't know where to tell you to look at. I tried that route and found it hard to find a job that way even...mostly due to the qualifications you have to meet for the job alone, let alone the expense you have to go to. Most places will not allow you to use a laptop, you have to use a desk top computer that basically runs well. So I gave up on that route a long time ago. I did find something and I love it, but it's not for everyone!

I say if you really want to try that route...try that site first and good luck!

Alot depends on if you are looking for a job or if you want to have a business that you work from home.  There are alot of business opportunities out there as well.

I am not even sure where to start. I would love to have my own business from home. Even just a job from home that is legit.

I am a work at home mom. While I was searching I started doing something called ZNZ (online marketing), You have people try trials of stuff like Netflix, credit score checks, credit cards ect and you make money off of each person who does a trial offer. It's really hard to convince people that it's legit though. I decided to look somewhere else and chose direct sales. I am now a distributor for ItWorks and I love it. I am able to be a stay at home mom because of it, even after my husband got 2 pay cuts last year. My biggest suggestion to you is find something you will become passionate about, research the heck out of whatever catches your attention and check out the compensation plan. Some Work At home jobs are way to much work for very little pay like the Online Marketing ZNZ thing I was doing.
