Legitimate Work from Home Opportunities?

I've heard a lot about working online from home, and I would love to add those opportunities to my job search. Of course, I've encountered a lot of opportunities that were either ridiculous scams, or required a lot of money to be invested. I know there are free sites you can join where you get paid to take surveys, but they only pay about 10 cents for every survey you take, and that's only if you qualify.


Naturally, I've applied for quite a few conventional jobs. You know the ones where you show your resume, tell them your skills, give them your information, and if you're lucky, get called back for an interview. They've all fallen through for one reason or another, though. I never got called back.

I'm certainly not looking to become a millionaire. I've seen sites that claim you can make $2000 a month or more. I'm not saying that's impossible, but there always seems to be a catch. Either you have to invest a thousand to hopefully get two thousand back, or the offer requires you to do something very risky. Either way, I'm looking to work; not to gamble. I just want something that will allow me to contribute to this family without investing my entire bank account in the hope I'll get it all back with even more. I don't care if I only make, well, even 300 a month for starters.


I'm still try looking to go to a potential career developing school in the near future, or get a conventional job, but in the meantime, I really want to be putting some of my own earnings into our savings.

Does anyone know of something that isn't a scam, doesn't have a serious catch in the fine print, doesn't come with any huge fees, but can potentially earn someone at least a little money?

I don't want to buy someone's products and sell them to people for a small profit. I don't want to start an internet marketing business.

I just want to do something where I'm told the work I need to get done, and get paid accordingly. Is there something like this in existence, or am I just dreaming? I'm not opposed to the idea that I might not be thinking realistically here.


I'm just tired of hearing "It's so easy, anyone can do it", or, "no experience required", only to have my hopes shed when I read the fine print. Unluckily I have fallen for scams, but I want to know whether I'm going in the right direction so I can at least start on the right path towards success. Don't worry. I'm perfectly aware that I need to work for my earnings, but I'm willing to do that. I just need the opportunity.

Your humble support on my behalf is appreciated.

With my best regards to everyone at Thriftyfun.

Check with McDonald's. They in my area hire to have a rep take orders from home. Also check with call centers in your area.


They may have you work from home. I know several people who are working for Mcdonald's this way and they love it.
