Hi Erica!

Yes I understand with everything else how hard it is looking for legit work at home. I have been a stay at home mom for about 7 yrs and I too started out looking for a work at home job. I found several differnt site some that wanted you to pay for their job boards, And some I did just that. Only to find out I would be making 7 to 8 dollars an hour (on top of trying to keep a 3 yr old and 4yr old quite for 3 to 4 hours) Of course these companies don't want the people calling to know that you are infact at home.

So I then started to take a different approach, I started looking into work at home business. I too not a sell person at all. Found tons of information and business out there. What I did in decideing was to make a list of thing I would do and a list of things that I would never do. That's when I found this great company. It has truly been a God sent. Now if you are serious about working from home I would get my list statred. And go for it Also listen to this call this business has truly changed or family( and still changing) I would like you to give me a honest opion of what you think even if you think this is not for you. 1-800-514-1258

Thanks in advance,
Patrice

P.S hope you find what you are looking for

Hi Erica, I have been working from home for 10yrs now and love it; no bosses, no traffic .....just alot of fun. I'm in a business that promotes products that follow the trends and people will always need. You dont keep an inventory because products are shipped directly to the customer. All you do is purchase your product to start; these are products you yourself will take plus a very inexpensive starting kit. My website is www.2anewu.usana.com and my ID#2930078 All you do is click on Online Presentation on my website and contact with any questions. Thanks my email is talonzo2@satx.rr.com

Hey Girl! Here is some help on your search... I have included the difference between a business and a job, a list of LEGIT at home Jobs and SCAMS to look out for!



Looking for a Home Business:



This is a very REWARDING opportunity no matter if you decide to do Ameriplan (I am a Proud Business Owner with Ameriplan, it brought me home full time to my girls, let me know if you want info), At Home America, Make-up, Jewelery, etc. A Home Business usually always has a start up and a monthly overhead or requirement. It is your OWN and you never have to answer to anyone but yourself! If you find exactly what your PASSION is and what you will put your HEART and DEDICATION into, it will pay you for a LIFETIME, the Success you can have is ENDLESS! You make your own hours, work around your family and create financial freedom... which is soooo AMAZING! Just think in 2 to 4 years being able to go on vacations, and affording all those things in life you never thought you could have! A Home Business WILL do this for you, if you WORK it and you are determined to be SUCCESSFUL!





Looking for a Home JOB:





A Home JOB is a lot more difficult to find compared to a Home Business Opportunity. They are very few and far between, the ones that are out there that are LEGIT, have a waiting list and thousands or more applicants a day. It is very hard to get an At Home JOB. Now with that said, you should NEVER have to pay for an at Home JOB. They will pay you an hourly rate or base pay while working from home. Be very careful searching for an At Home JOB, and NEVER pay to work as an Employee from home. (F.Y.I. as a Home Business Owner there is an Investment, a JOB is not a Business)





Go to http://www.cafemom.com/group/37262/forum... for a List of LEGITIMATE Companies that hire employees from home as a JOB. (F.Y.I. ~ a Home Business is NOT a Job... A Home Business has a startup cost and a Home JOB should never have you pay)





SCAMS To Look Out For:



Go to http://www.cafemom.com/group/37262/forum... to review a very helpful post that lists the most Typical SCAMS, what to watch out for on your search!!!





You can also go to www.momportunity.com or www.wahm.com for advice, work at home jobs and tips. Many in there will be able to help you also!





GOOD LUCK!!! I am here if you ever need anything... You will find what you are looking for!!!!

Erica, I may have the perfect opportunity for you. TRUST me, this is not a gimmick and the concept makes sense. You can come in with little or no investment. Take a look at www.mylocaladlink.com/video and look at all 3 presentations. When you're done, give me a call 914.761.5416 so we can get you started. This is an incredible opportunity to get on the ground floor of a company created by Robert McNulty, who wrote the original business plan for Home Depot and started Shopping.com.

Hi, I joined Gold Candle Canyons and made over $600 in the month of Feb. I was shocked!! Everyone loves the candles and can't get enough. This month you can sign up for $24.99, that includes everything you need. Never pay a monthly fee!! My team is always giving out awards for just selling candles I got 3 awards this month!! Plus GC has a quick start program so you can earn $425 in free products in your 1st 90 days. You can also earn "gold dollars" pick any product you want for free. you can sell the item and get 100% profit or display them at a party. One huge selling point for was I get my money at time of sale!! I dont have to wait on them to mail me a check or anything. I get it right when I sell the products!! If you have anymore questions please contact me!! you can also check out my website www.mygc.com/ksroyal Look forward to hearing from you Katie

I believe that you will know what's best for you the minute you find it!! I've sold lingerie, jewelry, perfume, you name it and it was all a bust until I found my passion and my why!!  Since joining for free in September of 2007 I've recently left my full-time paralegal position to work from home, been on several all inclusive vacations, took my family of 4 to Disney on the companies dime, earned more jewelry than I know what to do with along with bags, purses, luggage, have replaced my yearly salary as a paralegal and earned a 2009 beautiful candy apple red Mustang last month that was built from the ground up just for me at Sam Pack Ford in Texas.  I have the clear title because my team and I actually earned this car and I do not owe one penny on it and I can sell it tomorrow if I choose (no other company out there has this amazing mustang program)......wow!!!, it still blows my mind to think of all of the amazing things that have happened along the way in my 2 short years with my company.  Above and beyond all of the bling bling and prizes, I've gained so many beautiful friendships, along with self confidence, motivation, and the ability to dream and believe in myself.  All of our products are amazing and 100% satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.  Please check me out at beautipage.com/kimfrysinger or feel free to ask me any questions and send to my personal e-mail of jaxsav21@fuse.net.  I'd love to send you more information and samples to try.  God bless and good luck on your search.

Think about what skills you have and things you enjoy doing that other people might pay money for. Work for yourself, be your own boss then you are in control. See this website www.webmums.ning.com.  It is not just for opening online stores despite what the home page says -  I have still found it useful and learnt a lot about SEO and promoting my own business which I run from home.

What exactly is it that you want to do? I sell Tupperware, and make more money than I thought I would when I first started out. It's easy work, seeing as how it pretty much sells itself. It's a good product with a lifetime warranty, so people are eager to purchase. You can do home parties, cash and carry parties, have people host parties online on your website, and sell directly online. There are so many options. You can visit me at www.my.tupperware.com/tamaraglenn and check it out. Leave me your contact info, and I'll send you a recruiting flyer. Hope everything works out for you!
