In Response To: Any real jobs from home? (Meri)
Have you held any job position in the past that you know you could do from home if you worked for that company or another company just so long as they let you?
If your answer is yes, then I suggest that you contact all companies for which you could provide the same work you used to do, but only as a telecommuter. This would require that you be an entrepreneur, maybe, because the idea is not just to send a cover letter and resume, but to convince them what benefit it would be to them over hiring you as another body in the office, like are they currently doing. Sure, you should look for these positions advertised all over the country but if you really want the job I'd contact companies that are not advertising for employment for the area in which you will provide work but you know or can guess that they have positions like your former position. Contacting everybody would increase your chances greatly.
Sure, it's work, there's no denying it, but if you really want to work at home for another company/telecommute, then you'll have to be very proactive in finding that position with a real, reputable, paying company because there are few, if any, resources out there that you can trust for leads on real WAH jobs. It's a high scam industry because, no offense to you, but the market is largely made up of people who are desperate, lazy, and/or gullible. You can see the same exact thing going on in the Biz Opp industry as well, especially online. But I think that the WAH market is worse because there are MUCH fewer legit WAH opportunities advertised online and in classifieds than there are legit biz opps.
Once you do find a position then you must convince them that you are the one for the job, just like in any job. However this is harder because they have to trust you to be a self-starter and full of integrity and honesty because they won't be able to watch over you like the bodies in the office. They don't need some lazy person that just wants a WAH position because he thinks he can get off easy and do less work than he would at an office job.
Working at home, just like running your own home business, requires good concentration, dedication, discipline, and time mgmt/organizational skills. You have to be focused because you think "hey, I'm at home, I can do whatever I want now". It's easy to get distracted and stop working thinking you can just go back another time.
Be careful and don't get your hopes up on finding a WAH position fast or at all because I have to say, that the odds are definitely against you, against anyone.
PS. I used to have a link bookmarked for a site that seemed very legit once that listed legit WAH positions from the US and Canada, I believe. About 2 years ago or so. Not sure if it was something you had to pay for the info or if it was free. I don't remember what exactly made me think it was pretty legit, but if I ever find it I'll post it here on FIB for some scrutiny by the clan, here.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
