I am new to this so I will tell you about myself. My name is Amie. I am a mother of 2 wonderful kids. Raylee is my 2year old daughter and Chayse is my 1year old son.

I wanted to ask if any of you work from home? I have been trying to find a way to make any kind of extra income but everything I have found seems like  scam so I dont try them.Any help would be greatly apprecitated! Thank you inadvance!

I would check the local businesses, especially the ones that you patronize, to see if they have anything you could do at home.  That way you could be sure it was a legitimate job.


Hi Amie,

I work from home as a jewelry designer. What started out as a hobby several years ago turned into a business with an income. I needed very little starting capital (no overhead, just a small selection of beads, etc.) and began making just a few things that I could sell to friends. With time it grew. I eventually photographed my pieces and would have them on the internet to share with friends. Once again, it expanded and more people were asking to see my work. I also do events and shows to promote my pieces. I'm in my 7th year and love the freedom and flexibility working from home offers. I home school my daughter and find that I have more family time with my schedule. If you have any love or interest for anything particular, I believe you can make a business of it. Many offers you see advertised as a work from home business are often scams. I've looked into that myself. I have other ideas if you are interested in hearing them.  Best of luck to you!
