so far ive checked a few things out but im still not satisfied. im very nervous about some of these "jobs" online I don't want to get scammed or even be taken advantage of. I don't like pyramid things either A. its really hard for me to reach out to people considering I don't know many people B. im use to earning money doing really hard work I think I mentally feel like I am a failure if I try to do for example "mary kay" and end up not selling anything just really depresses me because I know other people do really great at it.

I work from home and to be honest I was scared too! What makes it easier for me is that I have a really good team and great support from my husband. Not all of the so called "pyramid things" are scams. You have to find the right one and be passionate about it. It's also my business. Too many people get scared away by thinking of these opportunities as a hobby or a pyramid scam. You also have to have golas. If you love the products, other people will too. I personally know women who make very good money being a part of this company and that's what gives me my drive and I WILL reach my goals. My best advice is find a company that you like their products like I did :)

No problem Michelle. It honestly was an oversight on my part. I am sorry for any stress I may have caused you. Roe

my friend you can do great with your husbands money, be satisfied and content with what you have. Its not money only that brings happiness you're not a failure, don't stress yourself you will end up doing bad things.

A lot of the people I know who work from home sort of invented their own job. They run a small business walking dogs, making custom wedding invitations, baking desserts for cafes, teaching art or music lessons, providing childcare, etc. Or they saw a need and found a way to fill it. I have a friend who used to do freelance editing from home, and I have another friend taking courses to be a tech writer (she plans to do contract work from home with it eventually). I know someone who does medical transcription from home. She's been doing it for nearly ten years. I know somebody else who took orders for a large pizza delivery chain from home for awhile. Basically, when the call centre got too busy they had people at their houses using headsets and home computers to handle the overrun. I also have a relative who does booking and scheduling of free samples for grocery stores from home and another relative who does decorating and other prep for weddings.
