Has Anyone Found a Legitimate Work from Home Site That's Real?

My husband works 12 hr. shifts 6 days a week and has a really lousy work schedule. We are playing catch up with all of our bills plus trying to pay mortgage at the same time. He was laid off during the summer as a carpenter and finally landed a job that is permanent and all year round. My kids are in school and with my hubby's crazy schedule I can't really get a job outside. I want to contribute but have been wasting my time with all these work at home sites which have proven to be no good. Please help.

What can I do next?

Well, I found myself in your situation myself, looking for a REAL home based business. Well, there are many out there and they all claim to make you lots of money for a small investment, but which business is not going to be a hastle to do to make some real money. Well, about a month ago a friend of mine whom is a morgage broker business owner and has been for many years called me. She asked me if I would be interested in investing about $250 if I know that I can turn it in to 10k. Well, my reaction was to hang up if she was not my friend, because I figured it was a sales pitch that had a catch attached, but it turns out that it was real. Oh and it has travel perks too. Check out this 13min presentation:

and you can decide if you would like to find out more information. I don't have time or $$$ to waste with anything that is not going to benefit, but this was one opportunity that was worth it!!! If you have further questions after reviewing the presentation email me [email protected]____.com and we can talk further.

M.-

I was going through some of the old request' from mama source and I found yours. I don't know if you are looking for a type of job that allows you to stay home or a job where you control your schedule. I started in July selling for a jewelry company called lia sophia (www.liasophia.com/jackiehugelier.) and I love it! I was looking for something that would enable me- someday- to be able to stay home with my son. Right now I work a full time job and I do this on the side to make extra money. It has-so far- proven to be very profitable for me and with the holidays just around the corner I hope to do really well! If you want more information I would be happy to share. If this is not up your ally I apoligize for disturbing you.

Have a great weekend!
J.

M...I have spent a fortune trying to find such an opportunity and it always seems I come back to home party business. There are tons of them out there, to fit just about every person. I do Noahs Ark, the traveling make your own stuffed animal workshop, along with Bella Bee, the traveling glam makeup workshop with a character lesson and greeting cakes. I have found these 3 are the best for me, no inventory, I receive my commission the day of the party, most of the time at least $65 for an hours worth of work and lots more. My 7yr old daughter is also my helper and loves it. There are a lot of scams, and I have really spent fortunes on them. If you would like to talk more, feel free to email me...K.

I am a SAHM/WAHM! I too wanted to stay with my 3 kids and have found this business opportunity works for me and several other moms on my team. Check out my website www.thebodyshopathome.com/web/faithjones
If the opportunity interests you we can talk further. This really is a lucrative business to work from home. My kids even help me with the business which is AWESOME!! I will also be holding a business opportunity meeting on Oct. 11th if you want to attend.

I also recently started with another direct selling called Xango. THis is a mangosteen juice that is great for helping with the energy level. I really only take it myself but have noticed a huge difference in how I feel. It is set up to be a WAH business. I can set you up to talk with someone if that is something you may find interesting! I wish you luck with your search!!! :)

Hi M. and YES to your question! In Feb 2004 I was fired from my job. This happened after my husband had found employment in Oct 2003 after being layed off for 15 months. To make a long story short, we have found the most ethical home based business out there. There's no selling, inventory, delivering products, no party planning, and most of all, no financial risk. This may or may not be something that you would be interested in or even fit into but I'd love to at least get your appraisal on it. Are you and your husband available Wednesday at either 9pm or 10pm for a 30 minute overview? Of course, you won't have to leave your home...this is done over the telephone.

Thanks!
M.

Hi M.,
Are you looking to sell? Parents magazine suggested checking out dsa.org -Direct Selling Association. You can research what companies are out there and are legit. Good Luck, Kathy
