Work at Home opportunities that require money
March 8, 2008 11:18pm CST
I know a lot of people who want to work from home sometimes shy away from companies requiring money. 8 times out of ten. It is a scam. HOWEVER there are some legit companies that do require you to invest money before you start. I for instance work from home as an independent business owner. When I signed up with the 2 companies I was required to invest $25.00 for startup. At first I was leery but after much research I found it to be a reputable company. Sometimes you have to look at it as you are starting your own business. If I was to open a new mcdonalds I would have to invest money in getting it built before I could make money. In this case it was the best investment ever! The only thing I can suggest is researching about the company first before you invest in anything requiring any investment, but do not shy away from ALL work at home jobs requiring you to fork over cash. There are some that ARE legit! Just remember RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH!

I agree with you. There are so many scams out there it is really difficult to tell if the company is legit or not. I am not sure where you put your $25, but I put mine towards a membership at sohojobs.org. They post work from home jobs, not business opportunities. I personally cannot see owning my own business as my marketing skills leave a lot the be desired, but I do work from home (as a customer service agent). For those who are not sure they want to be in business for themselves, I would suggest sohojobs.org.
