Finding Real, Legitimate Online Jobs
Moms all over the country are finding ways to work at home…
Like I said before…. I know when I first started looking for work-at-home back in 2002, I was scared. I thought – is this even possible? And when I do find something that I can do from home, will it be a legitimate work at home opportunity, or will it be some kind of get-rich-quick scheme that leaves me with an empty wallet and dashed dreams!
I admit, I did get scammed a few times. Was it some kind of initiation into the world of work-at-home? After being taken a few times by these get-rich-quick scheme type offers, I decided to start telling others about what kind of real work at home I was finding and what didn’t pan out for me. That way, maybe my experience in the whole online job and work-at-home area could help someone else that was looking for legitimate companies and real jobs.
So what is the truth? Is there a work-at-home-job-resource that exists that can actually hire workers and allow them to work out of their homes? Because we’ve all seen the crazy data-entry job websites, haven’t we? They get you all hyped up thinking, “I have finally found a home based career!” And then what comes next after you read all about this data-entry company’s “legitimate” training and help? You guessed it – they charge a fee. Sorry….we moms are looking for no fee work at home.
I’ve seen so many claims from supposed work-at-home websites that it makes my head spin. Jobs for moms shouldn’t be that hard to find! After all, we moms are able to multi-task and perform under pressure, right ladies? Many of us have had corporate careers. Anymore I get really annoyed seeing the sneaky way a lot of “work-at-home-companies” lure people in, get their hopes up, and then at the end of reading all their info it says: Membership FEE is ONLY…
So what makes MoneyMakingMommy.com different? For one, I’m a mom. We have that in common. I have researched work at home since 1999. Actually earlier than that because I have always been interested in direct sales and having my own home based business. I started selling Avon at 25. So even 20 years ago, I was technically researching work at home!
I am trying to make money from home. Just like you. My original goal in 2002 was to make $400 a month from home. Trust me – $400 a month was HUGE in my world back in 2002. Actually, it still is. You see, after I got my paycheck each week, and paid for all the gas it took to get to work and the $100 a week for daycare – I had exactly $125 left over. If you took out my lunches at work – we’re down to about $100 a week. So if I could just make $400 a month, I would be making the same amount of money I made each week at the radio station.
So I began my search for work-from-home-opportunities. These needed to be FREE work at home opportunities. I was now without a job, had two kids and we were behind on our mortgage. Not the most financially secure spot to be in for me and my family. So how to work at home? How does this mom figure out how to do this? I researched night and day. Any lead I found, I submitted my telecommuting resume. I approached every company hiring professionally. Even if it was an independent contractor position, I was writing that cover letter, resume and following up.
Lo and behold – I got responses back. They liked my persistence. They liked that I was professional. I was willing to go through training.
Whatever it took to land the job. I wanted a work at home career and I was gonna get it! I ended up working as a chat moderator, a writer and photographer. All great jobs for my situation and my skills. You need to keep this all in mind when you’re researching companies that work from home.
Quick Telecommuting Job Hiring Tips
1. Search for jobs every day!
2. Submit a professional resume.
3. Write a genuine cover letter and why you feel you’re right for the job.
4. Be persistent! Follow up! Pick up the phone and CALL!!!
5. Be realistic. If they need someone that can type 65 wpm without mistake and you can’t do that – don’t apply.
Best Work at Home Ideas
OK – so….now, more on why MoneyMakingMommy.com is different.
MoneyMakingMommy.com offers tons of ideas and money making programs. Some money making ideas I’ve tried, I actually blog my experience and have written reviews. Was it a legitimate money making opportunity? Or was it an epic fail? If it sucks, I’m not gonna keep on doing the program, and I’m going to let you know what I think. If it does work and I do make money, I share that as well.
What I can tell you is that you can search for a lot of cool work at home companies and home based careers here at MoneyMakingMommy absolutely free. I am always posting jobs that can be done online or at home.
I am seeing a lot of online jobs right now for the following types of positions:
1. Virtual Assistant
3. Customer Service Rep
4. Article Writer
6. Online Tutor
8. Focus Groups
..and yes, even data entry jobs!
The only thing I will say up front, is that these online jobs are not individually verified by me. If only. I simply can’t do that. It would take the work of MANY people to pull that off. Just one mom working here! But, it is an easy way to see what is out there as far as telecommuting jobs, freelance work and more. And again….it’s free.
So lastly, why come here and research work at home? Why seek online jobs here? Why bother? Why stay on this website? Why sign up for my free newsletter? Because I post work at home jobs! When I find something that looks legit and helpful – I post it! I also share a little bit about my life, my family….I want you to know I am a real person. I am JUST like you. I am trying to figure out this world of work at home opportunities and work at home scams. I want answers too. I open up my website to you and my life to you like it’s my front porch. I’m just a normal mom at home with her kids and husband trying to survive the economy, survive our credit card debt, our mortgage payment, put groceries on the table.
So – this is my help. This is what I have to offer. A site that’s getting close to 400 pages of work at home advice and articles. I also share freebies when I find them. I offer money making opportunities that I’ve tried and that I’ve found. Online jobs are posted almost every day.
It’s not perfect, and I’m not perfect – but at least I’m in the ring swinging and fighting. I’ve made a lot friends over the last 10+ years with MoneyMakingMommy.com visitors and subscribers. And now with blogging and Facebook and Twitter — well, it almost seems like I’m back in radio again.
A final thought as you look around MoneyMakingMommy and all the online jobs and work at home resources. I am always looking for new, non-scam ways to earn money from home. Whether it’s a freelance job, or a surf and earn program or a genuine work at home employment position. What I research and the online jobs I find, I will post here. NO question about it. Work at home comes in all shapes and sizes. Online jobs don’t necessarily have to be “having a boss”. YOU can be the boss!
As a mom, I’m trying to make ends meet and be able to be home with my kids. I cut coupons and look for bargains – stretching a dollar isn’t a foreign concept to me. I know how you feel right now. You really want to find a genuine work at home job that is satisfying and that helps bring money in the door – and I know those online jobs can seem elusive.
People that are researching working at home and online jobs do it for many reasons – a sick child that needs constant care, maybe they have an anxiety disorder that doesn’t allow them to function well outside the home, maybe you’ve just lost your job and trying to find anything to bridge the gap with freelance or part work until you do find something. It doesn’t matter the reason. What you need are real work at home resources. No scams.
There is one person behind the scenes here – and I am doing my best. Take comfort in the fact that I know what it’s like to be scammed, and it sucks. I know what it’s like to have bill collectors call the house and I know what it’s like worry about money. Online jobs are out there – I am living proof of that. And maybe the online jobs I’ve done aren’t glamorous or high paying – but they allowed me to pay my bills and sleep at night.
Each day I post new online jobs – at least a dozen. And I send out a work at home newsletter each week with a dozen (or more) online jobs in it. All free.
May all your work at home dreams come true! – whether it’s your own home business, freelance work or online jobs that fit around your schedule. – Kelly
