Question work at home?

Hey whats goin on everyone, just wondering if anyone has ever had any actual success with any internet work at home program,I'm to skepticle to jump in to one of these so called trustworthy programs and just throw my money away. Because after all wouldent it be nice to sit at home,play guitar,and look at your computer screen only a couple hours a day.If it could only be true!!

Re: work at home?

I never tried any internet work at home programs, but when I was younger I tried probably no less than 25 of these work at home programs and they were all scams(at least I wasn't able to make any work).
I would just say be cautious.

Re: work at home?

From everything I have heard it is all a scam. They "require" you to purchase something from them in order for you to start working, a training course, whatever, and then of course you don't make anything with their crap product. There may be some out there that are good, but I would tend to think if there was a lot of money to be made sitting home on the computer a lot of people would be doing it and it would be fairly well known.

Yeah, in reality, they are actually just selling you something that's worthless.

Re: work at home?

I think the work at home programs are pyramid scams. You buy the info from a guy who has sold it to ten other people like you. Now you have to sell it to 20 people. I know there's more to it, but you get the idea. I think pyramid scams are illegal.

Find a unique product and market it on the evilbay. Some people earn a living that way, and a few of them rather successfully.

Nothing wrong with mowing lawns! Say you run your own landscaping business and the chicks may even think you have some fiber
