I left my job recently and moved back home. I like being home, and my parents like having me here. It takes some of the pressure off of my mother because she’s not the only one here to keep checking in on my father (who’s not in great health). But there’s no way that I can continue living here without income.

I’ve tried just about every angle as far as the Internet goes. I’ve tried blogging (made a buck 25) I’ve tried some other types of sites as well and did a little better. And just recently I starting looking at the whole product idea submissions. But as of yet, nothing has came along that I’ve actually gotten a check for doing (you have to reach a certain amount for each program before they’ll do a payout).

With the affiliate programs, you really can make money, but it takes time, years even, but I need something now, or I’m probably going to have no choice but to leave and go back to work. I guess it is a lot to ask for. Money for doing pretty much nothing. I guess everyone would do it if it really worked. But I just thought I’d ask and see if anyone had any real leads or suggestions.

I’m not trying to get rich, I just need something that would equal, or come close to equaling a normal sized paycheck. Less than 1000 a month is all I need to keep myself going and contribute a little to household. So what do you think? Is I really doable?

  1. Please don’t listen to these people saying they are ALL SCAMS. They are not ALL scams, just MOST of them are, LOL. I am a single mom of 2 girls who has tried over 15 opportunities in the course of 2 years so I have some great information for you on how to find a LEGIT way to work from home plus a list of top 10 work at home scams!

    People are looking for work from home and the biggest problem is they don’t understand that there really are NO WORK AT HOME JOBS. You will not find hourly pay from home. You can look forever, you’ll never find it. The only way to earn an income from home is to find a legit home business.

    Small home businesses have increased in the last 5 years by about 200%? People are really starting to realize that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. The best home businesses to start are those with a proven plan in place like Avon or Mary Kay however if you are like me, you are not interested in pushing products.

    Legitimate small home businesses should have a small costs involved but be careful, all the scams will be charging too so know the business. Talk to a REAL person and ask questions. Less than $500 to start is reasonable and I would stay away from those wanting $1000-$5000. If you are coming across places that say free then I would RUN don’t walk the other way! They never are in the end.

    After trying 15 things I now work about 20-25 hours per week for a well known and respected company with amazing credentials. This company actually helps keep Americans Safe and Secure by offering Medical and Dental plans at affordable rates that anyone can afford. We also have SecureNet which helps Americans Protect their children in a program called National Child ID in partnership with the FBI. We also help Americans get back on top of their finances with Foreclosure Avoidance, Debt Relief, Credit Repair and more. We have over 10 programs ranging from $15 to only $40 a month per household which help Americans save many and stay safe. Americans have saved over 1 BILLION dollars with these plans.

    I started with this company 2.5 years ago and started making $500 a month within only a few months. That income has increased now to over $3000 a month which has been a blessing for my family. The best part is they have 401(k), direct deposit, life insurance and a benefits package from day one.

    There are NO products, NO hard selling or pushing, NO cold calling, NO home parties and no telemarketing! That was VERY important to me. I absolutely love working with them and I can’t believe I am making what I am making and in so few hours per week. The neat thing is there are other people on your team that you work with so you are never alone even though you’re at home.

    I was a bit apprehensive at first because I know a lot of companies are not legit but this company’s credentials FAR SURPASSED any other home business I had ever seen. SOME of our NATIONAL partners and credentials are National Association of Dental Plans, Dunn and Bradstreet, Consumer Health Alliance, US Chamber of Commerce, Parent Magazine, US News and World Report, Dozens of Fortune 500 companies like Sears, Target, Walmart and Lenscrafters and Time Magazine. We are even currently being featured on WeTV, Lifetime and Oxygen. Most important, to solidify our legitimacy you’ll feel the utmost comfort in knowing that we are partnered with the FBI.

    No matter what you decide at least check it out, request a interview to get more information and at a MINIMUM read this list of top 10 work at home scams so you can protect yourself!

    10. Craft Assembly
    9. Medical Billing
    8. Email/Rebate Processing
    7. “A List of Companies Looking for Home workers!”
    6. “Just pay for and take this class first” Then we’ll give or find you a job!
    5. Envelope Stuffing
    4. “Turn Your Computer Into a Money-Making Machine!”
    3. Pyramid Schemes (this is NOT the same as Multi-Level Marketing MLM)
    2. Chain Letters/Emails (“Make Money Fast”)
    1. Typing At Home / Data Entry (HUGE SCAM)

    As for those of you who say…..”I want to work from home but I don’t want to have to pay for anything”. Well, that’s great! But it will never happen. Let’s be honest, there is no such thing as a free lunch. If it is a true honest home business you need to expect to pay. Mr. Walt Disney didn’t start the Disney empire “without paying for anything”. Neither did Mr. Sam Walton, owner of Wal-Mart.
