my search is over

  • When I started my search for a way to make an income from home I was so discouraged. I think I found every scam out there! Not only that, but the ones I thought might not be scams required me to invest several hundreds

  • Hey there. Tell me more about what you want to do before you write the idea of a way to make income for yourself. I am not part of any companies, or networks, or pyramids or sales for something I don't make myself.

    I bet you have a hobby or something that you enjoy doing. Start there. That's what I am doing and it makes me really happy. I have my iron in several fires, I am not rich, but I am happy and enjoy all of the different things I have made "up" and generated into money makers.

  • I think you have to search within yourself for ideas and inspiration rather than finding ready-made opportunities. I don't think there is anything wrong with some ready made opportunities, as long as you are passionate about them and can add a LOT of your own ideas and creativity.

  • When I was ready to change careers, it took a lot of soul searching to find what was right for me. I spent a great deal of time looking at my goals, values, and priorites and comparing that list with my skills and gifts. There probably are some ready-made opportunities that work out fine but there are a lot of scams out there. It just has to be a good fit for what you are looking for (looking to get-rich-quick doesn't usually lead to a good fit). Christine was need to be passionate about it and able to add your own unique gifts.

  • Once you are very clear on why you want to work from home and make a certain level of income, then it is only a matter of finding a fit. I am so blessed to have found the answer, to work from home, and no phone calling or selling. Anytime, anywhere business helping people. And I am very passionate about helping people find a better way.

  • I was so sick of online scammers trying to contact me that I write an article titled "Mom Scams" and posted it on my blog. Here is the link to the article.

    Here is a good tip that I use from time to time. If an online scammer happens to get you on the phone, try this. Say, "Hold on just a minute while I turn on my recorder for my protection."

    An online scammer will hang up on you immediately and a nonscammer will not.
