I have a friend who responded to an ad in the sac bee and is now working from home as an Admin, for a realy company.. taxes are taken out and everything like a real job only now she can do them in her jammies... I would love to do something like that I have customer service skills that are excellent data entry and so on.. Is there any way that I could do that from home that any of you know of.. everything that I run into there is some sort of start up fee and that is to become your own business owner and that is not what I am looking for.. how can I pay the start up cost when I myself am living payday to payday as it is..

have you considered childcare? I don't know the rules for where you are but It is farely easy to start up here. You could also look into medical transcription. My sister found a company that paid to train here over 2 weeks but she had to go out of state. they sent her to a training and then gave her a computer and paid her internet bill and sent her the work online. If you can type fast you can make really good money doing this.

WOW, I have had a lot of people respond to me too about at home businesses, I actually do have the option to have my own business with the company that i purchase organic products with but I do not have the money to really get into the whole advertising thing right now and I too want to be able to just work data entry or something like that.

Here are some great companies to apply with www.cloud10.com is a good one, and there is another one called www.vot.com I think is what it is, if not contact me at ____@____.com and I can get you the correct link to that...THere are NO FEES to apply at these companies, you do the work in your HOME you must have a PC though, I am limited in working with these because I do not own a PC, but VOT is no big deal, but with Cloud10 they do not have a Mac platform, but they did contact me becuase they wanted to hire me.....but when I said I had mac platform they said they do not have software for that just yet and to reapply later on when they may or if I get a pc to contact them....

They are EMPLOYERS not home based business.

Hope this helps a bit!

I have discovered the GREATEST business opportunity and it is happening right now in America. It's called YTB. You owe it to yourself to check it out. Just imagine, when you travel, YOU get paid the commission. You also make money when other people travel - and - you can make travel a tax deduction. Wouldn't it be nice to make some extra income? Or maybe a lot? Just imagine you making more money than your husband? LOL. Well, after he gets over himself he WILL thank you! (I hope!) ;-) You can call me for more information on my cell at ###-###-####.

Hi A.!

I was looking at your request and wanted to tell you about a great business called spagirl parties. Its a new company kind of like pampered chef, only with bath and spa stuff! You make 25% of all the retail sales and you work as much or as little as you want to. Because its fairly new company and there are only 4 consultants in WA there is ample opportunity to make money (and you get 5% commission on all retail sales for any one you sign and and then any one that they sign up! Without taking away anything from those consultants!) Just wanted to let you know! Hope all is well!

I know you don't want a "Home Buisness" - but I do reccomend checking out what my husband and I do - I have done several home based business - including Mary Kay and I was very successful - but this is the best opportunity I have seen ever - have you heard of Identity theft? Did you know it is the fastest growing crime? Well, we have the BEST solution with protection before - during - and after an identity theft crisis!
This is not sold at parties - but to people who really need it. There is also a part where you can have compaines add it on to their employee benifits - and if you are good at customer service then this would be an excellent job for you!
Here is a 1-800 number that explains in about 15 min what we do and why we do it. 1-800-394-6919.
After you listen to it - call me ###-###-#### and I would love to just get your opinion.

It's too bad you don't want your own business, I love mine. But I totally understand it's just not for some people. Another thing I used to do online that works out great for stay home mommies is Online Tutoring. Check into Brainfuse.com and Tutor.com. They are really great - you can set your own hours, choose the subjects you want to teach, and so on. Look into it. Good luck.

Oh, and I almost forgot - I used to do online publishing too. Go to www.outskirtspress.com and see if they are hiring "Book Designers." They send you a book someone just wrote and you clean it, make it look nice before it goes to editing.

Hi A.,

I would love to find the answer to WORK at home also. It seems everywhere the question is asked the answers are home BUSINESSES. I see a lot of candles, Arbonne, Mary Kay, the many different Melaleuca teams; all of which are "home businesses."

I am a member of Melaleuca and worked hard for 3 years and went $15,000 in debt from buying leads etc. I love the products but the effort and money is not worth it unless you have a knack for selling. Even if you have a biz where you aren't directly selling the 'products' to the end consumer you are still selling the biz. It is hard work and people drop faster than you can replace them unless you work at it 50+ hours a week. I am sure that is not what you are looking for.

I too have heard of those lucky few that get actual real "jobs" from home. I would love to find one. Let me know if you find a legit listing of them.

Hi A.,
My name is J.. I know you said you were looking for something without a start up cost, but I thought I would respond anyway, because the start up cost for the company I work for is so minimal, I thought you might be interested... There is a special going on for May and June to help new consultants get started... Plus, It is just a GREAT company! I LOVE IT!
I am an independent consultant for Usborne Books At Home. They are a wonderful children's book company. What I LOVE about it is that you can do the usual home parties and such, but if that's not your thing (or if you just want other sales opportunities) you have a website set up and also can do book fairs at schools, fundraisers, library sales, reading incentive/literacy programs, etc... It is great! You make a generous commission and also have the opportunity to earn free books for your kids...
It really is a great company! I LOVE IT! My daughter and stepson love it too!

Hi A.,

I know you said you weren't interested in owning your own business but I love mine and would love to tell you about it. The start up fee is very low and it's an amazing company that's very supportive of mothers. I myself am a single- stay at home mom so I can relate to your issue. I tried several home employment opportunities and every one of them was a scam. My experience is that if they tell you it won't cost anything to start it could be a scam. I make my own hours and when I need to pick up more inventory they provide free daycare on site. Send me an email if you're interested :)

Hi A.... It sounds like your friend got pretty lucky! I actually do one of the home businesses, but I would also like to hear about any work you find out about from home! I've thought about medical billing, but it seems there are 1000 scams for each real opportunity so I'm scared. Good Luck finding work, I know how ya feel!...N.

Hello A.,

I understand you not wanting to put any money into anything but it is a sad truth that nothing is free. You can choose those that cost huge amounts or those that have a small start up but nothing out there cost nothing to start. Think about even haveing a baby cost thousands in hospital bills. Below is a posting I put out there on what it is I am involved in. It will cost you $29 to get an ID# to get a discount. After that it is up to you. Trust me if there was something out there that was FREE to get started and did not take hard work everyone would be finically free...wouldn't that be nice. Enjoy your week and be blessed. Below is my posting....

I just moved California from TEXAS where a company by the name of ARBONNE has just exploded over the last 18 months. I have now moved to California because I know for a fact it is going to be just as big if not bigger here. It is going to be a house hold name, just like AVON and Mary Kay, with our without my efforts. I relies that in the next 1-3 years everyone you know will know of, be using the product or working this business. Would you like to be the person who starts the explosion in your neighborhood and with your friends and family?
My question to you is this….How would an additional $300-$800 a month sound or even $6,000 - $10,000 a month? I am a very well paid Vice President of this record breaking company who would love to give you the tools and support to get to the top of this business where you can see finical success plus take back control of the time in your. The products are one of a kind and a bonus, but the real gift is the opportunity. There is only a short amount of time for me to give you the tools to get there before we are no longer ground floor anymore. If it interests you to quit your job, be finically in control of your future, leave a legacy for your children and or you enjoy helping others, please call me. I want you to have what I have.

Check out this web link to a new broadcast about my business http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=special_coverage...
as well as a Magazine in Borders and Barns and Knoble called “Success From Home” that is out on the shelves right now. You will see I am truly trying to give you a gift.

Be blessed and I look forward to meeting those that feel this is a GOD-send, T. Fruth

There is not a lot out there that you can do from home that is not a home business set up. There is a lot of garbage that will tell you they will and then they just don't work. I think I when though just about everything out there before I found something that fit me but it was a business set up.

You can go back to school and learn billing and do that from home but you will have to get your own accounts.

Without going back to school or working in the "home business" arena there is not a lot of legitimate business out there. You have to ask yourself what is more important staying home and looking into something different or going back to work.

I teach people to be wellness coaches. If you think you might like this then give me a call and I will tell you the details. Whatever you choose make sure that the company is stable, has a long creditable history and is something that you would have fun doing.

Good luck in your search.
