Hi Everyone,

My name is Bobbie and I am a sahm of 2. I have been looking for a legit job working from home. I have tried a couple of the csr/telemarketing ones and I am not to enthused with those. I am really interested in doing some time of clerical work or something of sorts that require typing and using internet. I don't mind taking an online course, but I don't have the funds right now to do that. I am hoping that someone out there can help lead me in the right direction. I am really confused and need some advice. Thanks for your time and look forward to any help I can get.

Hey Bobbie, your best bet is probably to look in the telecommuting folder if you are looking for J-O-B from home. If you want to start a business from home, then check out ALLLLL the MANY folders here and see if anything gets your interest.

If you are interested in travel you may want to take a look at my siggy. It's alot of training, but at least you get a LEGIT certification, and you can do most if all of it online. I LOVE travel, so this training is SO interesting and fun to me. And it almost feels like a real job! lol!

Good luck on your search, I know how hard it can be!

Thanks Stacey,

I appreciate the advice and I will definitely check it out. It is really hard but once I get there, I know it will be worth it. I will check out your career as well, not sure about travel but will keep it in mind. Thanks again

There are TONS of job opportunities listed here Bobbie. I am a WAHD now and my wife worked was a SAHM and did a biz from there as well. Take a look around the forums here for job opportunities or home businesses. My wife found hers very portable when I was hauling her around the world :) Best of luck..I know how it feels...and least how my wife felt having to leave her job.

My question is do you have to invest money into these busniesses

If you start your own business or join a direct sales / business opportunity, then yes. Any business costs money to start.

If you are looking for something like a telecommuting job, then you are an employee or contract worker so no, you should be paying moneyfor a job.

What I have been doing for the last year has been working wonderfully! I was a dental assistant making really good money, but I wanted to be home. I tried this programand it's done so well for me thatI was able to quit my JOB!!!! I believe that I have the best system ever! I made $5000 on my first sale the first week I joined!It can make you potentially $250K a year!
