humm Work at Home jobs

I have been researching on the web for quite a while now for international work-at-home jobs. Its a pity that most of the sites I come across do not look genuine but more like scams. I am in serious need of an extra income to suppliment my employment to be able to provide for my 3 kids. Anyone that can guide/refer/advice....please help.

I always suggest to create your own business.
My daughter has recently started selling her various crafts online and brings in a few hundred dollars a week.

The site came to my attention years back due to many members using it, I even signed up it was $7 and what one got was a database of legit companies, support resources and tools from the site. Like a repository of all one needed. The site would only list a company if the company, in there search, it was good. Really you could gather all the stuff for free, but that would take your time and research.

Since it worked out for me then, I searched through the affiliate company Single Parents Network belongs to and they were there, and I applied, and they accepted us. I just checked and the affiliate company still has good marks on that company all these years later.

The other one, I also do and was at the affiliate company was the ones that I have placed in the space just below the first post in each thread.

I had even been a Nelson house for a year, it was only a couple of dollars a month, but all I had to do is fill out a survey from them once a month that had like 10 questions and send it back in a self address envelope they provided.

In the shop area at
http://singleparentsnetwork.com/Shop and the income area http://singleparentsnetwork.com/Shop...ome/index.html
there are also some other sites that list job requests, like modeling, voice, or singing and then there the regular jobs sites. additionally if anyone uses the links on Single Parents Network sites, we get a few cents here and there, but at the end of the year it helps some. Better then nothing.

I have used these, and I always ask if there are any site you use regularly and trust [only from member I have grown to trust], let me know and Ill see if they are apart of the affiliate network Single Parents Network belongs to and Ill add it to the shop area, so to help the network.

hope that helps better understand why i pick the adverts that I do.

The site is a a gathering of other site looking for positions to fill - They look out for legit offers, and help with writting, type of software, really just a hub but legit

Did you try medical transcription or medical coding billing? There are many legit companies that offer work from home opportunities. You can also try freelance write and register as an author with websites like Textbroker. For writing you may not need any training but for work from home careers in healthcare, you may need short training, but certifications may not be required.

JustAnswer.com. If there is something you specialize in, you take a test-become certified- and choose which questions to answer, and get paid. I have not done it yet, but one of my professors swears by it.

Mother, are these really legit? Im so skeptical on things like this, and would love to find something I could do at home.

What have you tried on this site? And can you make a decent income doing it?

The ones that I have posted, yes, they are legit.

I've worked for them also, I cant say that one can make a Descent living, but I have made extra in my time that Im parenting and when my children don't need me.

I have a milk crate with folders in them and at the moment there are 300 company i have worked for over the years, never had a bad one yet, and after all this time, there are some companies that will call me first and offer extra money so that they can get the job done fast and they know what they are getting from me, so at present there are about 10 companies that keep me busy with the time that i can give.

I would think that a descent living would be subjective, and depend that work , works fro you. As I stated, these are repository places, they list companies, and resources to help you do these freelance type jobs. Additionally, they do there absolute best to make sure they are all legit, The Freelance website has it spattered everywhere that if one of there listed companies ask for money up front, to NOT do it, and one can notify them and give them a heads up.

hope that helps.

I am an Independent Scentsy Consultant. Many consultants have their own goals and there are a lot of them who truly make a living off of it. It's definitely NOT a scam nor a scheme

Scentsy is a wickless candle heated by a low wattage light bulb. COMPLETELY SAFE around children as the wax only melts to body temperature (my daughter has stuck her finger in the wax and has never been burned). the scents last for a LONG time too! There are 80+ scents with tons of different warmers to suit various decors and change with holidays = ) Currently, I have clove and cinnamon warming in my warmer and it has been going strong for 4 days using 2 cubes of wax.

Also, unlike traditional candles there is no soot or harmful toxins released into the air and it doesn't burn therefore no fire!

My team is AMAZING! Please feel free to check out my website http://aprilnosescents.scentsy.us and if you would like to check it out (try before you "buy" so to speak) I can pm you the number to listen to our team call! We have new consultant calls every Thursday and team calls every Saturday. After you listen to the call, tell me 3 things that caught your "eye" and I will mail you a special gift = )

Please let me know if you have any other questions via pm. I would be glad to help anyone out.

Are you willing to go back to school to get trained for these jobs? I am asking this because any genuine work-at-home job will require you to have certain skills and if you don’t have these skills, you may not qualify for these jobs.

And when I say go back to school, I don’t mean a four-year university of even junior college but it can be vocational. State Colleges have many to choices from.

www.fiverr.com is a great site for extra income. It's not a lot, but you can create your own "gigs" and create custom offers. Take a look and see if there is something you can do (editing, cooking, web design, etc).
