I need to find work and or I'm going to go nuts but I also need flexibility because I'm taking evening classes my husband travels for work. My husband travels every other month or so and he's gone for a week or so at a time.

Hello. I also worked for West (West Teleservices). I worked for them on-site in Tulsa for nearly five years as an agent, quality assurance advisor, and eventually supervisor. My mother fell ill and I was in the midst of a complicated pregnancy and decided to leave the company. After my son was born I returned to the company as an "at-home-agent". It's just like Tonya the other mom said. Absolutely no out of pocket expenses from you are required, unless you count the cost of postage of course. It's a great company, a legitimate one, and one that's been around for many, many years. While at home I worked for Babies R Us and Toys R Us doing baby registry customer service, I worked for the San Francisco Bee newspaper, I helped for a short time answering calls related to the switch to digital TV, and also assisted with Red Cross hotlines during hurrican season. Check into it for sure. Hope this helps.

I worked for a long time for a company called WEST..it is a customer service line. You sign up with them (they ask for NO money), you go get a document they send you notarized showing that you are who you say you are, then you train, on your computer for whatever line you will be working on..PAID TRAINING..then you go to the employee site and pick up hours..as many or as few as you like! You do have to have high speed internet and a home phone..whenever you sign in to work, the calls that are coming in for your line are routed to your number, you answer it, everything you need is in front of you on the website to assist the customer. The customer will dial whatever 800 number or whatever and never know that the calls are being routed to at home agents! You also have to agree to a background check, which THEY pay for to make sure you are not a crook, as some programs you may have to accept credit cards and such...took just a little while to get set up..you have to apply and then do a telephone interview, you have to download their software so you can use their programs, again it is FREE, have your background check and paperwork done, but then..you have control! You wont get rich, I did it for over 2 years, worked for Home Shopping Network, CitiBank, ect... average pay is around 9 bucks an hour, depending on the line...but you can earn extra income for your family without ever getting out of your pjs!

erin, i was interested in doing this and looked into training. however, i just didn't trust the many "schools" that are out there. can you give me information on where you trained and did they help you find a job? my concern is putting money into this and not being able to find a doctor to work for. i would appreciate any information you can give me. thanks.

If you don't mind children you can always find babysitting jobs. You can post yourself online. I think it is childcare.com and you can put down your living area and people actually search for you to watch their children.

i know that you have received many things to look in but here is one more. I am a Herbalife Distributer and i get to work from home. Yes there is a $65 charge to get your distributer packet but it comes with the herbalife marketing plan so it tells you how to do the work step by step. I have been on the products for 1 month and have lost 6.6 pounds and 20 3/4 inches. I started at a 25 % discount on products i sell and i only order the products when customers order them from me so i don't have to keep anything i don't usually have on hand and it takes only 3 days to get my shipments in. I just qualified by selling $500 worth in 1 month and now get $35 discount. My sister just signed up under me and now i make the difference of our % discounts we make from the company. Please let me know if you want to hear more about the business or products. Hope one of these tips you have received help you find work from home that you will like.

Hi Isenia, I just joined a new social network for Free, where you can make money just by inviting others to join. Actually, Pizza Hut has joined this network and started promoting it today. It's called Blastoff and when you join you get a Free Webpage so that you can ask others to join for Free. Go to my Webpage and check out the videos. http://my.blastoffnetwork.com/cheryldyou...



I'm also a wholesale distributor for Ardyss International. The slogan for their flagship garment is "Drop 3 Sizes in Minutes", which catches everyones attention. They sell body reshaping garments, health and wellness products, cosmetics and personal care products. You can become a wholesale distributor for $29.00. No inventory involved and the products sell themselves. Since I work full time, I do this part-time, have been involved for only 2 months and have made $200 & $300 per month part-time. I know people who do it full-time and make more per month. For more information go to my website www.ardysslife.com/reshapeyourselftoday.



I hope that this is helpful and good luck with your search.

Hello, I am an Independent Mary Kay consultant. I love what I do and I have fun doing it. Our current promotion will allow you to become a consultant for just $50 the promotion does end October 31, 2009. For the $50, you will get a starter kit, 6 months for FREE website, and 50 FREE business cards. Now there aren't too many companies that offer 50% commission of your sales.

You don't have any monthly quotas, and most importantly you will have assistants from the beginning til the end. You decided how many hours you want to work and how much you want to earn. Now what company awards you with a car for running your business the right way? Mary Kay believes in recognition and prizes so that is even a greater reason to join us.



What I love most is that Mary Kay makes donations to charitable foundations such as Breast Cancer research and domestic violence. I don't know about you, but I lost my mom to breast cancer in 2008 and I support a company that will make a difference to someones life affect by cancer. Mary Kay also knows that our families are important and so does our religious faith, so we put our philosphy is to faith, family, and career, and we base our business in that order.

I am a stay at home mom to my now 2 year old son. I joined Internet CEO Moms a while ago and I have to say it's the most positive experience! I work with an amazing group of moms who are very dedicated in helping other moms work from home and becoming financially independent. The training is free and the support is unlimited!! No selling, parties, or inventory. It is a very fun and flexible business and I love the fact that I can work when I want and most importantly, be there with my son through all his milestones.

Check out my website http://www.4theLoveofMyFamily.com/.

I would be happy to give you more information and introduce you to the business!

Melissa,
The company I am with requires $29 to get started. That is fully refundable within 120 days if you decide it isn't for you. I'm not sure if you were asking if it costs money to get the information or just to get started. If a company asks for money before you get info it is most likely a scam.

Hi Mellisa!
The company that I am a distributor for does require an up front cost. I have found it to be a small yet well worth investment in my business and the future of it! It gives me access to their complete website, packers, pickers, and shippers also supplies resourses and a voice on the other end when I need help! They are my complete business on call!! Where else could I get all this overhead, employees and management with a small fee to minimize my time!
I would be very leery of a company that has a small or no upfront cost or a get rich quick scheme. You need to research and find out what exactly you will be paying for and the best that they will benefit you! Nothing worth while comes without a cost or effort on your part!!! I would love to have the opportunity to tell you more about this company and all the ways they can be of benefit to you and yours! email me and I would be happy to give more info! ruagemcmaney@yahoo.com
Good luck and Go for It!
Carol

Check out www.odesk.com. It's free to join and there are numerous jobs available in nearly every line of work. It takes a little time to get your profile/resume set up, but it's worth it once you've got it. Just search what type of work you're looking for and bid on jobs available - bidding meaning you tell them what you want paid.

Good Morning Isenia!
I am new here and just read your need! I am in the business of helping ladies just like you! In todays economy we all need to find more ingenious ways to build an income while desiring, if not needing, flexibility to better manage our families and schedules!
I am married with 3 children (boys), a 16yr. old and 10yr.old twins I also work outside the home though with a manufacturing company that I do not find personally gratifying. I started this business approx. 2 yrs. ago and have thoroughly enjoyed helping ladies such as yourself. I show woman how to go for ordinary to extrordinary by taking their wardrobe and giving them a complete new look just by accessorizing! It saves them money, they receive products for free, and I can show them how to earn money simply by doing the same! I earn on an average $250.00 for about 3 hrs. of my time.(give or take). This is low compared to some of the others due to the limitation of my time. You could earn more or less it depends on you and your situation. I would love to tell you more about this company and what they offer! It has without a doubt been an incredible business and opportunity for me and my family! Call me. I'd love to share it with you 330-324-6970 or email me carolmaney@yahoo.com I am also on FB!
Talk Soon!!
Prayers and Blessings on your search :>)

Hi Isenia,



I have been working with a health and wellness company now for over 5 years and I love what I do. We don't have to sell, stock or deliver products or do any cold calling and we get to save money of things we need to buy anyway. Plus, their products are so much safer than what is in the stores and great for anyone who suffers from allergies or skin conditions. All we do is set up customer accounts and answer questions. If we have people who would also like to make money, we teach them how to do what we are doing.



The money you will make is directly dependant on how much time you put in but you have the chance to make as little or as much as you want.



If this sounds like something you are interested in knowing more about, feel free to give me a call at: 608-524-3441 or request information from one of my websites: www.workathomeunited.com/mybiz or www.livetotalwellness.com/mybiz and I will be happy to give you a call at one of your most convenient times to share the full details so you can see if this would be a right fit for you.



Good luck in your search and I hope to be talking with you soon!!
