If you're looking for actual, factual income that is reported LEGALLY, there are quite a few work-from-home companies out there. I'm going to leave a list of links in this post, for all the ones I remember, anything else I find or remember later, I'll leave in a subsequent post. I have actually worked for a few, and let me just say, the freedom to come to work in my PJ's and eat or drink whatever I have without the long commute of working outside the house is just an amazing thing. Alpine Access is an excellent company to work for. Teletech At Home is another good one. American Express and Apple also have at home agents, and New Corp, West At Home, Vertex, and a few others are also good places to work, from what I understand. The links are listed below, take a moment to fill out an application or candidate profile for as many as you like, they are constantly and forever hiring. Let me know if any of these help, and glad I could help, even if only a little. Have a wonderful day!!

Teletech At Home - http://www.teletech.com
Alpine Access - http://www.alpineaccess.com (click "Careers" in top right corner of home page)
American Express - http://careers.americanexpress.com
West At Home - http://http://www.westathome.com/
Convergys - http://www.convergys.com
New - https://www.newcorp.com/index.php/careers/home_based_ccr/
Apple - http://jobs.apple.com/index.ajs?BID=1&me...
Vertex - http://www.vertexviahome.com/

Those are all the ones that I can think of, at the moment. Anything else that I find, I'll post later. Let me know if this helps any of you! Have a good day, and good luck!

There are several things I have done in my life and depending on your strengths and likes some will work for you and some won't. Here is my list:
1. Home Childcare (your state may require you to follow some rules before starting) This worked as long as you don't let the parents walk over you. What I mean is some may say they can't pay or had to stay later than expected. You have to make an agreement and follow it. If you don't, you'll be broke with extra kids in your home!
2. Cleaning Houses. I was so afraid and clueless on how to clean homes as a business. I used to charge minimum wage and did it off and on. About 3 years ago I got serious about it and was blessed to have my customers train me. I'm now a fast and confident cleaner who makes my customers really happy. I charge between $20-35 per hour, depending on the job. (Depending in the area you live you may be able to charge more). This is a job away from home but I work my own hours usually 4 to 5 hours at most. By doing this, you can meet lots of new people and then maybe sell to them some Avon, Home Decor, or whatever you think they'll like. (Double income).
3. Medical Transcriptionist. I went through and completed the training but because of my baby I wasn't able to do the job. (Most are online now). I wouldn't be able to keep him quiet for more than an hour and time is unpredictable with babies. So, this wasn't profitable to me.
4. Scentsy. I made some money with it but only stuck with it for a year. Plus, I didn't put more than 2 hours a week into it. I feel if I had followed through with the training and was careful not to spend too much money but used it wisely for marketing I probably would be making decent money by now. I got out of it because I lived out in the country and delivering orders was draining my profits. Instead I just recently joined Celebrating Home.
5. Blogging: I just started this at www.awomanlikeruth.com and am slowly building it up since I homeschool, have a baby, and clean houses part-time (I'm killing myself! j/k). The kind lady who I paid to train me has given me valuable information that takes time to put together. She is making quite a bit on her blog and offers training. You can visit her website at http://proverbs14verse1.blogspot.com/. On her blog she shares about how much she makes...it's impressive. As for myself, I haven't made money yet only because I haven't put into practice what she's given me. I'm trying! :)
6. Face Painting: If you're artisitic then you can do this as well! I have no professional training. I was encouraged by my wonderful mama to try this. So I went on YouTube, typed in face painting, and from there got so many helpful tips on how to paint certain designs, what products are great to paint with (thank you lisajoyyoung), and how to set up a booth. From there I ordered my paints, looked up my community events (chamber of commerce) and paid a booth rental fee, painted faces without letting people know I was scared to death, and made over $200 in less than 10 hours total. All of this in less than a month. (God gives me help and my daddy gave me a push every time I wanted to hide in my "fear shell".)
Please be bold. I'm always trying new ways to make money that works around my family's schedule. I've lost money and gained money. That's what life's about and don't think you're dumb if you end up losing money. (Get good counsel before putting a lot of money into something especially if it jeopardizes your family's income, peace, etc.) There will always be the people who think you might be crazy, or will talk negative, but smile, remember not to share your ideas with them again, still love them, and go on.
I hope this helps and if you want to be encouraged about loving God, your family, your home, and have fun, come by my website! I would love to share many more things to help
you. www.awomanlikeruth.com (Sorry if there are any misspellings. I usually look up any words I'm not sure about but with my baby sleeping right next to me I have to hurry and type my ideas. When he wakes up I have to get off the computer and put him right back to sleep. It's night time at the moment) ----Naomi Martin

I'm having so much fun with Pampered Chef and was skeptical about a direct sales company, but the team I'm on is fantastic and encouraging, and people love the products, so it's easy in that regard. I'm looking for new team members all the time, whether for casual work or even to replace another income.

All April there is a 50% rebate on both sizes of starter kits, so it's a really great month to start your business.
You can see all the info and contact me at the Pampered Chef site, search Shannon Wheeler in Maine.

Hi ladies! This post is such a common question. I've probably looked at 100 difference blog post about making money from home. I signed up with 5 different mlm companies over the past 10 years (quickstar, melaleuca, Primerica, tastefully simple, and cutco) I never made any money. So I figured they were all just scams. Then I went to Mary Kay party and I LOVED IT. It was fun and easy. I had never used Skincare products or makeup before and now I was being taught all about it. So I joined that night. I figured well at least this will be fun! Playing makeup and maybe making some money sounded good to me. I have been doing this for 4 months now. I'm so glad I finally found something I love! I have a team of 7 ladies. I have made a little over $2000 in sales profit ( we make 50% profit) and my monthly team building checks are growing. Last month I made $150 from that. What I've learned is that it is all about who you sign up with. These are the people you will be talking with regularly. I like to keep it light. No high pressure. I joined for fun and I want to keep it fun. The money is nice but there is no better reward than making a woman feel beautiful. It's about being others focused.
I know there is plenty of negative stuff out there about Mary Kay and every other company for that matter. But I don't focus on that. My husband provided for our family by working at McDonalds for ten years. There's lots of negative stuff about them too, but people still eat there every day of the year.
That's just my thoughts. If you have any questions feel free to email me.

I don't know yet if it is legit, so far I've made 35$ in five minutes but it won't let you take the money until you make 300$ then they send you a check. You get ten bucks everytime someone clicks on the link you post. Check it out and I will repost when I hit 300, if they send the money I will let you guys know, couldn't hurt there is no start up fee.

I have been a stay at home mom for 14 years now and money gets really tight. Especially when you are trying to feed boys. They eat like dinosaurs. I have found an online program that lets me get paid daily and it is legit. It saved me and so I want to spread the love. The best part is that it’s all free. Even the training is free. You only make money, not spend it. That’s what got me hooked. All these other online deals want you to spend money to make money. That doesn’t make sense to me. But anyway click the link below and watch the video. It explains everything.

Ladies, I started my own business with Arbonne, a Swiss-formulated health and wellness company. I am an Independent Consultant and District Manager. We have products of such a huge spectrum: beauty/cosmetics, nutrition, skin and body care, and hair care. We have something for everyone, including babies and men. Arbonne is a network marketing company with the best products in the world and has a great compensation plan. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever want to be a salesperson, but Arbonne is changing my family's life. I am making people aware of the "pure, safe, and beneficial" products Arbonne offers; and by doing so I get paid. I can create my own schedule and work on my own time. I love Arbonne's products and get paid to use them. I'd love to share this with everyone. You can email me at jcsantiago3@yahoo.com for more information. Oh, I forgot to mention Arbonne gives trips, gifts, and a white Mercedes Benz as an incentive. Www.arbonne.com

I’m a home associate for this company called MCA (MOTOR CLUB OF AMERICA). They are similar to triple A but a hundred times better. As a member/associate you get your normal roadside assistance and many more benefits including dental, vision and prescription discounts. What my job is to basically get the word out about MCA kind of like promoting it, in which there are many ways of doing that. For as little as $40 ($19.95 for your first & last month) to join MCA and for every person you get to join under you MCA pays you $80+ per person!! We as associates are paid every Friday via direct deposit. It’s a great way to make extra money that adds up fast. You could actually do it part or full time too and replace the job you already have. MCA would basically be paying you for bringing them more members.

To know that something could change your life, in and out and have the financial stability to make a payment on a car and a house without getting out of bed and setting your alarm clock in the morning. Being home with my kids is number one for me. Believe me it is not always fun, but I would rather be reading a book with my children then to be living someonelse's dream.
Or teaching my children things that the babysitter has taught them.
I was invited to a 90 day challenge party and tried some differnt shakes. I was sold on it right away and signed up as a promoter.
This is Body by vi.
A nutritional shake that tastes like cake mix and helps you lose weight!!! Believe me 40 pounds later , a very happy mama.

working from home still requires work...you still are running a home based business. If you think money is going to fall in your lap for being at home with your child, good luck. Anyone that has success with a home based business still requires organization and and WORK, unfortunately there is no money tree for stay at home moms...it still requires work. Sorry just a little frustrated with Lois' post below.

like other responses, the best way I know of to make money from home is to "own" your own business or get involved with an MLM. But to make it work you have to work it. It can be done from home but you have to be an active participant. If you would like more information you can contact me at my email address, jensen_deann@yahoo.com

I am a consultant for www.Itsjustjewelry.com and I love it. I make 50% of everything I sell. All you need to do is wear the Jewelry and it will sell. E-mail me for for information... gwilsey1@gmail.com or call me 828-294-1088

I would like to share my at home business with all of you. I am an independant consultant for Pampered Chef. I chose this company because I had concerns about the inital investment (which is about $100 bucks) and my sales abilities. That was 4 months ago- and I made all my investment back the first month and then some. It is great and the added benefit- I've got amazing dishes to cook with.

I've always had the cheap dishes to cook with- somehow there was never enough money left over for me to splurge on a nice skillet, or a new spatula that doesn't melt on the side of my skillet.

So, now I have nice dishes, and a great reason to keep in better contact with my friends. My group with Pampered Chef has also given me some really great new friends.

I hope you find an at home job that is satisfying to you, and if you're interested in joining Pampered Chef, just let me know and I'd be more than glad to give you more information.

I have a website that will allow you to check out our amazing promotions right now for new consultants. Check it out at www.pamperedchef.biz/mara.heckman

Good Luck,
Mara Heckman

I work with a clothing company, Etcetera, and most of us are stay at home moms. I would love to have you learn more about the company and I promise that I will be completely upfront about the position! When I was looking it was so obnoxious to get the mystery "you can make thousands from home" offers with no info.

BTW It is not Multi Level Marketing--our process is an interview process and our consultants do not recruit other people.

I have put together a website to answer questions and if it seems interesting you can contact me! :)

Best of luck to you!

I had a home medical transcription business for over ten years, and yes, depending on how many doctors I transcribed for, I was able to make money. It worked for my family in that I was able to be a stay-at-home mom and work around my family's schedules while supplementing our income. Hope this helped. Good luck!

Like most of the comments I have read, most at home jobs are a Multi-Level Marketing company. Such as Mary Kay and Tupperware. I also, am involved with a company called Mona Vie, it is a health food drink, and people are raving about the effects. I have many friends and nieghbours who are making from a modest to great income with this product.

Though I have to be honest, I have done very little with the business since I was registered, as my 17 year old son was killed around the time of my registration. I did alot of business out of town before his death, and I have not yet felt the urge to add a new thing to my plate. Though as I have said I have seen others success.

MLM is normally mostly more successful when you build a business with a team approach. It is encouraging, motivating and can be alot of fun.

If this is the route you want, I agree that find a product that you can love. Mona -vie, tupperware, stampin up, anything. Then good luck.
