Legit Work at Home jobs for real people like us

Everyone has been asking me how I make money working from home outside of my job. This will probably turn into a series of posts but for starters, there are REAL work at home jobs out there if you know where to look. A LEGIT work at home job will never ask for money up front or have you pay to pass a test or anything like that. In my experience, MLM (multi-level marketing jobs such as Avon, sex toys, etc)will not make you tons of money. I am not saying it doesn't happen but it's rare. It's not something to bank all of your income on. Speaking of which, my # 1 rule is NEVER PUT ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET! Sure, you could limit yourself and say well I make extra money on Ebay or I work at factory making doughnuts (yummy!)...but any of these things might not pan out or last forever. Hell, look at Ebay. I was selling like crazy on Ebay in it's heyday in the late 90's and early 2000-2003. Now Ebay has become a BUY IT NOW land of flea market new crap and the rules have changed. They have made it harder for sellers and the sales are down. If you put all your eggs in that basket, you'd be screwed. You always have to look for ways to make extra money and use the skills you have. Even if you don't make careers out of work from home jobs...even if you decide to do a texting job for 4 months and make $1000 on the side from it..that's $1000 you didn't have before.

Here are some known places that hire for work-at-home jobs. Some of these places may have gone out of business or might not be hiring right now. This is not a complete list..just a snippet of the places out there. You can look at www.wahm.com and www.workplacelikehome.com for more info on working from home.

Data Entry: I need to add that there doesnt seem to be many companies that hire for this kind of work. The ones that do are sometimes very difficult to get because it is a very competive field that A LOT of people are applying for. Dont let that discourage you from submitting your application or resume though.

What a great post. I have been looking for ways to sell structured settlement payments and start work from home. I have a house on the beach and would love to just never leave. Thanks so much for all of these great ideas. I think it might actually work for me, they were great tips!
