I have always worked a regular job outside the home since my kids were babies. I have slowly moved up in pay over the years, but felt that I was never appreciated for the time I contributed to each job, and for the skills that I have. I have always wanted to work from home, so when I got laid off in April, I started my search for a work at home job. I searched for several months, not finding anything. I actually got scammed a couple times with jobs that promised pay similar to what I was making before the lay off. Here is a list of work at home jobs to avoid when doing your research.
Assembly Jobs – No, you can’t make lots of money assembling craft kits or any other type of kits. You can waste money on a package to get you started though.
Data Entry Jobs – You’ll see lots of listings for data entry jobs. They are usually either positions posting ads or a sales pitch for a kit that will get you started.
Online Businesses – Do you want to start your own online business and get rich? Be very wary of these types of ads too. What you will do is end up paying for a guide to working at home which duplicates information you can find free.
Posting Ads – There are lots of ads saying workers are needed to post ads on online bulletin boards and forums. You don’t get paid to post, rather you may get paid if other people sign-up.
Processing Claims – In order to get “hired” you’ll need to buy equipment, software and pay for training.
Stuffing Envelopes – Believe it, or not, there are still people saying that you can earn $3 or $4 per envelope to stuff them. You can’t. All major companies have postage machines which stuff, sort and meter mail.
The winner in the scam contest are the sites that offer to sell provide you with information on only legitimate work at home jobs – for a nominal fee, of course. Don’t do it!
I came across Ameriplan®, when I started looking for a real job again. I really took a long time and did my research. I also looked into similar companies, but none compared to AmeriPlan®. AmeriPlan® gave me a business opportunity, but also gave me free benefits for my family. What I really loved about the company is that they really care about the healthcare crisis in America, and they are doing something about it. This company is compassionate about what they offer, and their reputation proves it. What is really awesome about this company is the team support. With every business you put on your own books, they give you recognition! I have never felt more appreciated in my lifetime, and they recognize every single business owner in the company. That is over 70,000 homeworkers! I really started this business to get financial freedom, but also for my kids. I hated working a full time job and coming home tired, and not being able to spend time with my kids. My family means everything to me, and AmeriPlan® gives me the freedom to spend more time with them, but also make a decent living at the same time. I am truly blessed by AmeriPlan®!
