Greetings Kimberlyl! I just wanted to stop by and share some information or advice for you.  Working from home is an absolute blessing.  You just have to decided whether or not you want a work at home job or a work at home career (home-business). I have been in the work from home field since 2003 and love it. I've worked for many companies from home (as an employee) and did enjoy doing it at the time.   However, I prefer owning my own business over a work at home job cause you still have to have some schedule and report to someone in a home-based job.  With my own business I have more FREEDOM and write my OWN schedule and if I need to leave really quick to go pick my daughter up from school, I just do it. I don't have to worry about my shift not being covered. In addition, I OWN it and I don't have to worry about being laid off or "fired."   What I like even more is that I control how little and how much I make!  As of September 2008, my home business has allowed me to work full-time/part-time from home based on my family's schedule!

You must also note the important differences between a home based job versus a work at home based career/ business.  A home based job is a bit more difficult to find.  Most of the ones that are commonly available are centered around telemarketing, appointment setting or customer service/ order taking.  The ones that are legit have hundreds to thousands of people on their waiting lists and/or have tedious hiring procedures.  You should NEVER PAY for a home based job.  They will pay you either hourly or a base salary.  Some pay by minute of talk-time and/or commissions.  So be very careful when applying for work at home jobs where they are hiring you as an EMPLOYEE versus an INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR.  A home based business is much different from a work at home job.  Some form of an investment whether minimal or large is normally required.  However, unlike the work at home job, the investment and expenses are fully tax deductible.  You will not be an EMPLOYEE (W-2) but classified as an IINDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR (1099) which identifies you as a SMALL BUSINESS OWNER with the IRS.  Owning your own business is VERY REWARDING.  You have FLEXIBILITY, FREEDOM, and the opportunity to EARN a SIGNIFICANT INCOME (because you are in control of what you make or don't make!).  The key things you should look for when searching for a home business is a legitimate, reputable company, minimal investment, residual income (being paid monthly on one each "sale" you bring- similar to royalties that singers get when producing CDs), benefits, opportunity for advancement, valued product or services, unlimited support and training.

While you are conducting your search, you have to be careful about scams.  In 2003, when I began my search for work from home I got scammed out of over $500. You name it, I've probably done it.  That experience is what prompted me to pursue the degrees that I have which is in Paralegal Studies and Criminal Justice-(CSI and Cybercrime emphasis).  I have done volunteer work for 4 or more years as an Internal Investigations Manager for a work at home forum that has now transformed into a telecommute agency.  I eventually plan to work for the government in their Cybercrime Units.  Pretty much I can spot a scam not even a mile a way!

Feel free to contact me for more information or for advice on things you may come across.  You name it, I've probably done it!  I've done over 30+ things from home so far.  But I do recommend that you do your research on all businesses/ companies that you come in contact with.  Don't always rely on consumer reports as your sole decision maker.  Use that information to ask that company questions about the reports you may have found if if they answer your question entirely to your satisfaction, you make the decision to proceed with them or not.  There are ALOT of disgruntled people out there calling companies scams when they are not.  I have been dealing with a lot of cases where companies are cracking down on these people and suing them.  So becareful who you are quick to call a scam and especially if you are posting it in a public domain.

If home-based jobs is what you're def looking for--- I have information available on LEGIT hiring companies that I've researched (ran background checks on) in my private group since I'm unable to post that information in a public domain.

Many Blessings to You & Much Success With Your Journey,

Hi Kimberly,



I am a mother of two, my daughter is 10 and son is 8 months. I started searching for an online job to stay home with my son. I started looking in the beginning of my pregnancy, so I have been searching for over a year for a legitimate company that I would be able to work from home. I have been scammed more than once and luckily was able to get my money back, from most of the companies. After joining circle of moms I finally came across a couple of legitimate offers. One of the offers was more up my alley and gives me the opportunity to take care of my family and help other families at the same time. Ever heard of Melaleuca? It is a great company with an excellent business plan. Let me know through circle of moms if your interested, you won't be disappointed. I passed up this opportunity a few times before trying it and boy do I wish I didn't. I could have been well on my way so long ago, but trial and error. . .I hope to hear from you soon, thanks for your time.



Happy Hunting,

Pililani Kaai

hello, i work from home right now and have 2 children. i have a business oppurtunity that has been helping me out! you should e mail me and we could exchange numbers cause id rather be personable and talk to u about what it is i am doing and see if ur intersted. but a glimpse is i buy products from my own online store and get paid for doing that by the company, they've been around for 50 years. instead of buying my diapers at walmart, clothes, vitamins, drinks, jewlry , skincare, (millions of items) i get paid for shopping through my own business and have my stuff delivered to my house even! i would love to have u check out a web site or have u attend an hour info session in ur area! 2,000 new people sign up in this business evryday! thats huge. hear from u soon!

Have you ever heard of Premier Designs Jewelry? You would sell high-fashion jewelry, but you would have to work away from home some to do the homeshows. You get to set your own schedule though...just an idea. I live in Arkansas and am doing pretty good at this so far.
