Finding legit ways to make money

United States

I wish that I could find a legit way to make some extra money. I am a mom of two wonderful children that I love to stay home with, but the money situation is stressful. I am sick of trying to find ways to make some money and running into scams! Any ideas?

With the rising costs of daycare and the worry about who is watching your children, you are in the same boat as many others out there. You need to make sure you are doing your homework when looking for work from home opportunities. And remember one thing - just because something works for me doesn't mean it will work for you. And if it doesn't work for you, that doesn't mean it's a scam. I have tried a few legit things, that just weren't my cup of tea. For the right person, they would do well, I just wasn't that person. I have found something that works great for me and I'd love to tell you more about it. You can check it out from the links in my profile. Depending on where you live - we are in many countries but not all of them - I can probably help you. Let me know if you'd like more information (information should always be free) and we'll chat.

I don't see it as a scam...i'm a geek, i always read the terms on these things before i sign up and research the site a little. I enjoy this site, but it doesn't pay you that much. The I look at it though is if i am doing the same thing somewhere else and get nothing in return, why not make pennies a day on here? They add up! If i keep going at this rate, I will get a pay out in 30 days lol :-) That should get me, um, a 1/4 tank of gas in my car! :-)

I can surely tell you that joining mylot is not a mistake, I had doubts before but when I received the payment and deposited directly to my bank account I never had any doubts. Its has jelped me a little with my expenses. Now I am trying to make it good here to be able to reap good earnings just before the year ends for I know theres no mistaking in joining mylot. You just have to maintain at least 50 posts per day and you cna increase from there and you can check it out and tell the difference. You can tell once you get it. Just dont doubt coz I did the first time and I just lagged behind here. Have a nice day and happy mylotting!

Yeah, I definitely enjoy this sort of thing. I also belong to MySpace and I did the same thing there....joined a lot of groups and participated in discussion...why not get paid for it? I love it and I think it is fun :-)

The primary key is networking or shall I say leveraging your most valuable time by building a network of friends and later on benefit from the activities of of the team you have work on. Only then you will start to see some changes in your online quest for financial stability. Of course building your network will require your own time and effort that needs more and more of your patience and hardships. Good luck to your endeavor.

I do agree that networking is the key. That is why for some people pyramid schemes make them a lot of money...as long as you are diligent about getting people underneath you and they work as hard as you do if not harder, b/c you get part of their money. Thank you for the "good luck". Same to you.

Don' stress, causes wrinkles! About three years ago I started selling Avon. Not to individual people, but held school fundraisers. You know how schools sell candy and junk to raise money, well Avon has fundraising too. It only cost $10.00 to join Avon. I held many fundraisers for schools and at one school I made $2500 in 2 weeks. You get your profit right off the top. I will tell you more about it if you want. Let me know.

Believe me, City girl, I try not to stress....I know it makes you older, lose hair and all that, the only thing it is good for is losing weight ;-) thank you for the suggestion, however, oooh, I don't think that is the thing for me.....it is great for the right person, glad it has worked so well for you. Even though I love makeup and skin care products....addicted actually!
