home business

Darla S asked:

I want a business that I can do from my home and I can choose my own hours. An online thing would be fine but I am unsure what is legitimate and profitable for me. Any suggestions?

  1. Dear Darla,

    “The more I study the wealthy.. in an effort to learn how to help more people around the world become one of them.. I’m stunned by how many people are actually not rich”.

  2. Hi Darla: Check this awesome opportunity out…http://gatewaytofreedom.ws

    Best Wishes,

  3. There is a Website that you can use for ideas.
    Please click on my screen name (Linda) then click on my 360 profile page and look near the top of the page. Make sure you go to the “Additional Income” page of that Website. (I can’t post a direct link because posting a link in an answer is against the rules).

  4. Yes, Ameriplan is a legitimate, real business. Check it out.

  5. If you are interested in hear about the Mary Kay opportunity email me. I worked full time for a large financial institution and wanted to be home with my children. Mary Kay gives me flexibility I need and the income I want.

  6. I just started my own business. If interested email me at I can tell you more then.

  7. You will know if something is legit if they are registered with the BBB and the money you put in is guaranteed. I do have suggestion and this is coming from someone that has tried for years to be successful at home and lost a lot of time and money before I found something I will be with for the rest of my life. Yahoo doesn’t allow us to relay links here on answers so they have our profile available to you. Good luck and be careful in your search! Jennifer

  8. Hello, I dont know if you have found anything yet, but here is a link to some information about a company I have been working with from home now for over 3 years.

    I am a single father with 5 children and if I can do this, anyone can do this!

    Have a good one!

  9. Darla,

    I have a great opportunity for you, that is legitimate: suzanne(tm).

    This is the home based business created by Suzanne Somers. You would have the opportunity to sell her amazing jewelry, food, and beauty products from your home. The company will do most of the marketing for you and you are already backed by a huge name…Suzanne Somers.

    I have been with the company since it began in October 2006, and I have loved every minute of it. The support staff is great and the commissions are better than any I have ever seen.

    Check out my website at: for more information. You can also contact me directly, all my information is on my website. I hope that I can “Share the Joy” with you.

  10. Yes. I might have just the answer for your. I have three direct sales companies I work for and 2 are based online. They are Home and garden party and cello in a box. Please email if you are interested in learning more at

  11. When looking for a company it’s important that you investigate these 4 criteria:
    1) The company should offer unique and consumable products (that people use on a regular basis vs. a one-time purchase)
    2) It should offer the ability to leverage your time – so you can eventually get paid for more hours than you could work on your own.
    3) It should be in line with todays market trends – think health and wellness
    4) Large expanding target market – think babyboomers.

    Hope that helps!

    I left my “regular” job in December to build my own business and have unlimited flexibility. Along the way I am learning to be more self-motivated, conscientious, and driven. I’ll never look back!

    If you would like to receive information about Arbonne International – a company that grew 164% in 2005 – I will be glad to send you a packet. In the meantime, you can go to my personal website at and click through to the company website.

    Best of luck!

  12. check out the direct selling association website at dsa.org and it gives you a list of work at home companies and you can check each one out but also read the companies code of ethics and check the ones where they charge an enormous fee to to start you want to make money not spend it

  13. Check out MonaVie, its a great product with a great compensation plan, and the timing couldn’t be any better.

    Go to my website, to research about the company and the product. If you have any questions you can reach me through the website or at

  14. Since you are not thinking of getting work-at-home job but home business I think you better think about doing foreclosure agent, consumer direct marketing business or recipe business. If you have some money think about ebay too.

  15. Hi,
    I have been working with Fauxture Couture which is a designer inspired jewelry company since last September. I love them because my customers do not have to order anything. They buy the jewelry right from you, you have your own showcase of jewelry. It’s cash and carry so to speak. You get 100% return on your money. You buy the jewerly from Fauxture at wholesale cost and sell it at retail cost. For example, you would by a necklace from them for 17.50 and sell it for 35.00….you get your investment back plus make 17.50….another example would be a neck set for 22.00 and you sell it for 44.00….so it is a 22.00 profit for you etc. I have so many parties and regular clients at this point that I can quit my day job!!

  16. How about Purse Party? You do half the work from home and then go to other people’s houses and do parties!

  17. My home business is backed the the better business bureau, state senators, congressmen, state treasurers, former attorney generals, etc. That is pretty legit? We have a great compensation plan that once you start, you get paid.

  18. Wow! Lots of suggestions so far! I am in health and wellness with a company that is inexpensive to start up, but if treated like a million dollar business, can grow into one in time.
    I train and mentor everyone who is new at marketing and help them every step of the way so you are in business for yourself but never by yourself.
    I have found this to be an excellent company that has all the marketing tools in place for you to start earning an income right away.

  19. How about an online TRAVEL business? Check out WorldVentures. It’s only about 15 months old and gaining a lot of respect in the industry. My husband and I are making money, saving money and traveling – which we love :) Besides, it’s not “lotions, potions or juices” – it’s Travel. The guidelines don’t allow me to give you details here, but feel free to contact me.

  20. Hi Darla, First of all, I want to say kudos on looking for a business to work from home! It is my personal opinion that if you find a LEGITIMATE business that is a fit with your lifestyle and personality, you have taken the first step in enhancing your life!
    I am partnered with an absolutely AMAZING company and I am able to choose my own hours so I can work around my family’s schedule!
    In your search, just make sure you check the company’s credentials. If the company is difficult to research, I would look in another direction! The BBB is another great organization I believe companies should be a part of.
    I hope this helps you out! If you need additional information, please feel free to contact me anytime.
