  • Hi. My name is Jill and I have 2 children, 12 and 2. They lead very separate and busy lives and I decided to quit my job and stay at home with them. I found this great work at home opportunity and I just wanted to share it with all of you. The company is called the Mom Team and it had been around since 1999. We are backed by the BBB. It has been a great, steady income and been very flexible so I can schedule to work around my kid's schedules. If anyone is interested you can go to www.ExecutiveMomsOnline.com for more information or if you want to give me a call you can. My number is 678-417-7694. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

  • Here are my suggestions on finding a legitimate opportunity that's right for YOU:

    - Set your financial goals -- Are you just looking for extra income or a potential full-time income? How long (and hard) are you willing to work to meet your goal?

    - Determine if you are looking for a JOB or a BUSINESS -- there is a distinct difference between the two and you want to focus your energies appropriately for the best results.

    - If looking for a JOB, what are your marketable skills and previous experiences? If you are looking for a BUSINESS, go with your passions, things that interest and motivate you the most. Build a list and use that to begin your search. General rule of thumb: Never pay for a job (businesses, on the other hand, usually involve some expenses).

    - Review your budget -- know ahead of time what you are willing and able to invest into your business, including start-up costs and ongoing maintenance and promotion.

    - Find a rep to contact, check out their websites, ask questions, do your own independent research. Check resources such as www.bbb.org, www.scam.com, and www.ripoffreport.com for potential scams.

  • I am involved in a business where the products are ECO-Safe for your household. They are Great. I have allergies and grandchildren and it was the best thing I did for my house. It knda works like buying a membershio to Sam's club and then yu can shop. But with this business you purchase the producst you need for your home that you would buy anyway in the grocery store and then spread the word. Not Hard the products speak for themselves. They do not have all the corrosives in them that harm our clothing, children, homes, ourselves, etc. You can check out my site http://www.themomteam.com/dmhinsch
    They have training that involves conference calls from all over the country, so you pick up on new ideas fort he products.

  • Most of them are scams. I've discovered this from PLENTY of trial and error. There are a few legitimate ones though. This is the one that's working for me: www.mystressfreeincome.com It does have quite a startup cost but it's well worth it. I've been doing it for exactly one week and have already made 1/3rd of my husband's monthly salary. If you go and enter your name and email, it will give you the info you need. Check it out.

  • These types of questions hurt my heart. They always lead to these scammers and other types to prey on people asking the question.

    I'm going to be real here. The only legitimate work at home opportunities out there that I'VE seen are a) your current employer allowing you to telecommute/work from home or b) starting your own business. Now, I'm not downing all the MLMs, but to me they are merely opportunities to work for someone else meeting quotas or recruiting others. This gets lost on a lot of people. If that's what makes you happy, go for it. But do your research first.

    When looking to work from home, you need to take a survey of what skills you have. Next determine if it's something transferable that allows you to freelance or start your own business. If you have to PAY MONEY or subscribe to something, it probably isn't very lucrative. If you get paid by recruiting folks more than selling the actual product, or if you can't get someone to describe the product (or service) because they are trying to recruit you, then it probably isn't right for you.

    If you are currently employed, speak with your manager and see what the policies are and what could be worked out. You have to do your part by drawing up a proposal and you better be prepared to show how this will be cost effective and add to your productivity. Have all your facts before even entertaining the conversation. The less money an employer has to spend the more open they MAY be to the idea. And of course, make sure it is a position where you can work from home and don't necessarily have to be in the office.

    I chose to tap into my skills as a Recruiter and Career Consultant and started my own firm. The internet levels the playing field for so many people. It's a very powerful tool if you know how to tap into it properly.

    Hope this helps.

  • Defiinitely. I posted something about it in the recent discussions.

    I think it also depends upon what kind of work your interested in. For example, I have a neighbor who does medical transcription. She does OK. Another left her job at Boise Cascade and she makes over $70K per year with the green business I mentioned int he post!
