Something that's not a scam

I need to find some kind of work that is legit and that doesn't require me to pay to start working. It would be great if someone would tell me about something that you have experienced firsthand.

Hi Amanda,

I am a very new Independent Designer! I had been searching for work at home jobs on and off again for years!!! The only ones I have known to be legitimate are Avon/Mary Kay.....Selling make up is not for me though! Anyways, I finally came across As you can see, the product is sooooo cute and sells itself......:) I love the product!!! If you decided to JOIN, there is a waiting list......(but it won't cost you anything to be put on the waiting list).......I had to wait about 2 - 3 weeks is all.....during your waiting can get prepared, gather more inforamation, etc...etc....once you are "invited" from the list, is then when you do have to pay $150 for your kit......I didn't like the idea of paying $ either..but with this company I didn't mind.....LOL Anyways, just click here and if you want to be put on the list....use my designer ID # of 14023 I hope this helps you!!!! Linda

Also, click on the very bottom link to print your card out for YOUR PERSONAL SAVINGS on your Prescriptions! Click the link at the bottom...print out the Rx Discount card to save anywhere between 10-75% on your Rx's. It works for BOTH the people that have insurance and for those who don't. It helps just about everybody out there with their prescriptions! Once your information is on file at a pharmacy, the card info is automatically kept on file and re-submitted with any refills that you do. (So you don't have to keep showing them the card...just submit it one time.). The only time to submit the card again would be if you switch pharmacies or have more than one pharmacy. Share with family/friends so they can save as well. If you give me your address ... I would be glad to mail up a laminated card to keep in your wallet. Here is the link to print out the card .... :)

If you would like to earn some cash by signing up (free) and giving out Rx Discout cards as well (just print them out on cardstock)... view the video at this link to learn how: VIEW VIDEO:

It Works! Skinny wraps are a huge hit! Everyone is loving them and they are producing some amazing results! They help to tone, tighten, and firm the skin, and a fun side effect is inch loss.Results are seen in as little as 45 minutes, with maximum results seen after 3days. It is not water weight that you lose, so the results are long lasting,usually about 2-6 months. The wraps work each time they are used, and the moreyou wrap, the more results you will see. Wraps can be applied to any area of the body you want to see results on- tummy,back, arms, legs, neck, chin, breasts, or butt. We even have a specific facialwrap designed to soften fine lines and wrinkles, and give you a mini facelift for a more youthful appearance! You can get a box of 4 for $99 as a retail customer. You can also get a box of 4 wraps for $59 as a loyal customer and receive distributor pricing on every product we have. Let me know if you want more info on this.Let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything I can help you with!! ~ Ashley (919) 637-5028

PS. If you are looking for extra income, it's only $99 to become a distributorright now. That comes with 4 wraps to get you started. We also have a RubyGuarantee going on right now where you can earn a guaranteed $599 in your first month. Let me know if you want more details on this. :)

Hi Adrianna,

Thanks, but I do NOT agree with you, First of all, I do NOT hunt people down, people love the products, and as far as the pay you get $32.00 per customer order, and you can get paid weekly, as well as on the 15th of every month, let's be very CLEAR, when we report or state certain information, making sure it's correct and accurate. :-) :-)

I do not do ANY SELLING, and I enjoy helping people create a 2nd income without leaving their homes.

I started with this company on June 16, 2011 for $1.00, (Part Time)

Since then all nine of my checks keep growing:

1st check = $504.11 (July Check)

2nd check = $917.23 (August Check)

3rd check = $1,701.47 (September Check)

4th check = $2,456.78 (October Check)

5th check = $2,812.44 (November Check)

6th check = $3,247.12 (December Check)

7th check = $3,474.24 (January) Check)

8th check = $3, 581.48 (February Check)

9th check = $3, 7.93.40 (March Check)

I will be getting a $400 car allowance in November 2012!

Questions or concerns, please call me @ my office 708.343.8799 or via my cell 708.299.9199

Have a delightful day!

I did Avon, Melaueca, Ameriplan, Cruise Experts, too much work and too much money. This is a wonderful opportunity for persistent sales pros looking for a career change or a second job. There are NO start up costs or MONTHLY fees, EVER!!!!!!! We have an ongoing stream of requests to keep you happy with great daily paychecks into your paypal account or bank account. Everything you need to make $1k /week will be provided to you during training.

Adriana - posted on 04/02/2012




OMG!!!!!!!I did Melaleuca for a year made it to Director 4, but people do not have the same work ethic as I or you do, they give up, they dont put their orders in. I had to police people to order by the 15th of each month so they can get their rewards and then toward the end of the month I was bting my nails because the back up orders were going to generate. You do not get $25 per person you get about $7 plush the product introduction if they order the same day. AN average 35 point order came out to almost $100 with shipping and handling and tax. You wait a month to get paid and then they charge you for the MORE report, countless hours of webcasts and calls, too much work for so little return. Do the same thing, and have no monthly orders. The only way Mela makes money is to FORCE people to order so they "can work and make money". Frank is like a guru, he has everyone in a trance. Yes the products are good but they have to MAKE you order each month so you can get paid REALLY????????????

I sign up a lot of Mela people and they are amazed at how much they worked for so little:

This is a wonderful opportunity for persistent sales pros looking for a career change or a second job. We have an ongoing stream of incoming calls to keep you happy with great daily paychecks. Everything you need to make $1k /week will be provided to you during training.

Hello fellow mommy's out there.. My name is Ashley and I am a stay at home mom of a 7month old son named Jake. Last month I started a home based business because I was realizing that we needed more money, we just didn't have enough. So I was approached by this amazing couple asking me if I have ever thought of a home business. I had said no, but I went to a meeting about the company and learned more information about it and realized that this is what I should do. I have only been working for this company for a month, and I have already made $200. This is a true no scam business.. and I recommended if anyone wants to try it please don't hesitate to contact me.

Please visit my website, there you would be able to see what the company entails and may answer some of your questions.

Thank you for your time,

I love what I do from home!!

I decided it was important for me to stay at home and work so I can always be there for my daughter during the most important years of her childhood. I also needed to make a supportive income while ideally not having to sell, stock, take orders, do deliveries, or deal with payments. has given me everything I had hoped for, plus free training and the essential tools to a successful business. I feel so privileged to be a part of it! We are always looking for people to join our team, so if your interested in working from home for a simple yet reliable company, I would love to get you all the details about our team and business.

Feel free to contact me anytime,

Thanks, Yanika 604-791-8010

I just started working from home a week ago. It's for a great company that is an online wholesale distributor of "green" products. There is a small cost to start b/c they want you to buy some of their products so you know what you're talking about when you work for them. But really it just replaces what you would normally buy at Walmart or Target or wherevery. If you're interested shoot me an email, or check out the site

Hello Amanda,   I have tried Pampered Chef. This didn't work for me, I am a shy person and didn't find it easy to cook in front of a group of people. Also, w/ the economy the way it is I don't know if alot of people would be buying things like that. I also tried Melaleuca, I didn't stick w/ this one because I am very conscious about what I use on my family. After looking into alot of the ingredients they used in their products, I was just not satisfied. That is one big reason why I chose Watkins. Also because of the low start up costs. I have looked into many companies and they mostly start  anywhere $99-$500. I just didn't have that kind-of money to put into something that I didn't know if it would work. Anyway, so I will tell you a little about what I chose.

I am an independent associate for Watkins. Watkins was established in 1868. For 140 years they have been committed to using the finest natural ingredients in their products. Their products are free of phthalates, sulfates and parabens and other chemicals that cause asthma, cancer and other adverse effects on your health. The have natural gourmet (spices, extracts, bread and dip mixes), personal care (deo, lotion, hand soap), home remedies, supplements,  home care (cleaners, laundry detergent, dish detergent) and much more. They recently launched a line of plant based home cleaners that everyone is going crazy about. 
You can build your business 3 different ways, you can sale products (have parties or just word of mouth) or you can use the products yourself and get other people to join under you and simply do the same (use the products and sign people up) , or you can do both.
It costs $39.95 to join. You can read more about it on my website,, and I will be happy to help in any way that I can. All of the products are backed by their 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.  This is a great company!

Amanda, I would love to tell you about something I've experienced firsthand. It's very legit, a solid based company without any debt or lawsuits. They help the average person get ahead and could make a huge difference in your life. It would only take about 45 min and you would know whether it's for you or not. I want you to hear the possibilities available and judge for yourself whether it could make a difference in your life. E-mail me so we can get together:
