I work from home and it took me 2yrs to finally find something that is legitimate so I understand your frustration. Like everything else I recommend tons of research and always find a company with an A rating through the BBB or higher. If its not accredited then its not worth your time. You are always welcome to message me to see if what I do is a good fit for you. Normally the company with the flashiest ads has the lowest success rate. They need flashy ads to get people to sign up and pay thousands of dollars to succeed. I don't like things like that at all

You should check out the one I chose. I can usually find a reason to not do these business plans, but with this one, I couldn’t say no. It is 100% free to try, with no purchasing required, so people have nothing to lose to try it. You only need one customer, then refer other affiliates to do the same. A simple plan, that builds you residual income from your organization. My group is building this quickly. Hopefully this will be something you would like to try. Thanks in advance for taking a look at my website for more information.

how much do you normally spend on cleaning supplies, pharmacy, bath and body, or even vitamins? you can spend it with the wellness company instead and get your products chemical free and safe for your newborn. They even have bath and body stuff for babies and they work so much better on my daughter when aveeno and johnsons are crap! The products can be free when you refer people to this company too. And then with even more referrals you can earn a income too. I am a stay home mom and this works for me too. My products are free I no longer shop out there and deal with carrying or screaming kids. I get them online and comes to my door within a week. Now I earn enough to save on a down payment for a house.
Contact christinjune.2013@gmail.com if you would allow me to help you.

Hi Keisha. My name is Dawn. Me and my husband started our own business two months ago and we are earning a residual income off customers we acquire through direct sales. The best part of the business is that we offer services people use every single day. I prefer to offer services that people need versus products people don't need. The business has been around for more than 20 years and is personally endorsed by billionaire Donald Trump. If you would like to know, more please email me at dawnriley169@yahoo.com and I will send you the link to our website so you can watch the business opportunity presentation video.

Hi,
I'm a mother of 5 and I have a 8 month old. I am also a nurse, but not feeling the desire to go back to work and be so far away from my kids as well as the long shifts any more. I am looking for something that will allow me to earn an income, but the flexability to spend more time with my children. I would love to hear more about what you are doing... if it is working well for you.

Dhrupesh,



I am sorry you had bad experiences, but I think you need to re-read the question. She needs to work at home, not find a ´job´.



Agreed, there are a lot of scams out there, and you get nothing without working for it, but there are many more opportunities than there used to be.



The problem is you have to WORK at it. Going to work in a job is easy, working for yourself or working from home is much harder because you have to manage yourself and discipline yourself, and there is no-one constantly holding your hand every second of the day. That is why so many people fail, not because these opportunities don´t work.



However, the ultimate reward is more freedom and the chance to spend much more time with your children, so it is worth it. You just have to keep looking until you find the right one, and there are plenty that require NO investment at all.

Hi Samantha,



Not every one is... but unfortunately there are a lot. And also, the majority of work at home jobs are based in the US, however, Europe is slowly catching up thank goodness.



did you ever find a work-at-home job? If you like talking to people I am setting up a telemarketing network in the UK offering discount Spain hotel offers. If you are still looking for something you can apply here: http://www.indeed.co.uk/job/travel-teles...



Hopefully you won´t need it though and by now you have already found something!

Hi Samantha,

Alot of them are, you just need to have a criteria on what you want. I did not want pay a whole lot when I started, I could not do home parties, go to meetings or 3-way callings and I wanted 100 % commissions. Came across this FREE VIDEO http://www.cashquickmoms.com



I too am a stay at home mom of 7, totally overwhelmed and wanted to find something just for me.This might be something for you. FREE VIDEO http://www.cashquickmoms.com



All the best,

Hey Samantha,



A scam would actually be a situation where you give someone your money for a product or service and you receive neither.......let along your money back. Home based businesses allow you to have a franchise like business without the franchise like headaches or upfront investments costs.



I have been in the home based business arena for years and you just have to find something that you are passionate about.



Remember, just because something doesn't work for some people, doesn't mean the opportunity isn't right.... it just means that it was not right for that person!! Also, ask yourself this: Many people go to college but not everyone graduates (does that mean college doesn't work?)



Wishing you much success in your search!



Regards,



Shanese

No Samantha, not everything is a scam but not everyone understands the differences or what to look for.



Most of what you will find will be work from home BUSINESSES. They will require an investment just like any traditional business would. Home based work from home JOBS are very difficult to find. The only legit thing that I know of is www.liveops.com which hires customer service reps from home. I have had a successful home based business from home since March of 2011 and have created a six figure income but I have worked VERY VERY hard to get where I am. Success is something that is earned not given so be careful of anyone that tries to make their business sound easy "no selling" "earn money from your couch" "earn money in your sleep". There is no such thing. If you choose to start a business you will need to be committed and work hard to be successful ;)

I’m not going to try and sell you, nor am I going to show you how much I have made. Laterally the choice is yours. When you find that business you will know it, it will feel right, and there will not be any question about it. Personally when friends and family came to me with that next big thing, I never believed them because they we sold and they tried to sell to me. The funniest thing, this business was present to me three times a week, and I ran fast, but it was the fourth time that a mentor of mine joined for another friend to help them out. Now that made me take a good look at it, because the person that joined to help out, it’s not Like he needed the money; they are well of but they don't do anything unless they see the gold at the end of the rain bow so I joined. All that I ask is that you have an open mind and make decision that will not place you in any type of strain in whatever you do. Because make the choice is the easy part, Follow your gut, have fun and don’t let any thing stop you from reaching your goal... So here is the link just watch the two video, and I'll see you on the other side.

Hi Samantha!



I have found a wonderful home-based business opportunity that doesn't require you to host parties, keep any inventory, or bug friends or family. Training is provided and anyone can do it. It's called La Bella Baskets and it is a truly wonderful company to be apart of and absolutely perfect for stay at home parents. Check it out for more information, right now they offer a 7 day trial for only $1.97! After the trial you only pay $19.95 a month, which covers the cost of two websites. Ongoing training and support is amazing!

Samantha,

Congratulations! First off, I have been there too! I have invested in so called "home based businesses" just to be left with nothing. I have 3 children two girls ages 8 and7 and a little boy that is 3, I recently quit my job teaching to go back to school, I am finishing my degree to be a Speech Language Pathologist, it is something I am very passionate about. I still needed some kind of income, but do not have the time to spend doing a lot of "work" A friend of mine introduced me to this opportunity and I could not say no. The company is founded by women who are mothers and wives themselves. I would love to share my story with you, and let you decide for yourself! Please feel free to contact me

donjacampbell@hotmail.com



Hope to hear from you soon!

I did some work for creative transcripts a few weeks back. Although I thought she was a reputable business, work from home. I did work for her, then ended up getting a new job and could no longer do it. She has decided I don't deserve to get paid for that! DON'T do any work for creative transcripts, they don't pay thier workers!

There are alot out there and one word of advice is if it costs you money upfront then it's usually a scam! Now that does not include online businesses because you generally can't start one of those for free, however, in the internet day and age it is a good idea to research the company and check with the BBB for information before you go into one.

Hi Samantha,

I read through a few of the suggestions people have made to you. I'm familiar with some, but not others. The wellness company people are talking about I know is not a scam. I am a very happy customer and have done a few referrals myself. I haven't built a full-time income yet, but I do get all my household cleaning and personal care items for free, which definitely helps! :) I also recently started selling an all-natural weight loss/energy supplement. Unfortunately, you would not be able to take it, being pregnant (congrats, BTW!), but you could still sell it. If you're interested in learning more about either of these opportunities, feel free to email me at GetNaturalWellness@gmail.com. I'm not going to pressure you - just give you the facts about both opportunities and let you decide if either one sounds right for you! :)

I hope to hear from you soon!

Most work at home opportunities are not scams. It's important that you understand what networking or direct sales are. I know there are some things out there, but they are pretty obvious. I have been in this industry for over 18 years. Message me if you would like to learn more about working from home. Part of my job is coaching and education and that is free!

Hi, Smantha.
I feel that if you are working at home, you have to treat it like it is your own business instead of working for someone, even though you are part of a network marketing company. You have to work really hard at it to build it to make good income. At the beginning, it might be very hard, but if you are eager and motivated, you could be very successful. If you are someone very serious about becoming successful, please email at norisigismond@gmail.com
Thank you.
