Today I was trying to decide what to write about so I did a search on "work at home" since that is how I got started it made sense and I was sure I would find some of those websites that drove me crazy in the beginning. Instead I found something more interesting.
One of the articles I ran across talked about all the signs you see when you are driving around town. It probably doesn't matter where you live. Take a drive and on most street corner you will see signs touting "work at home!" "Make $1000 a day working at home" "have a computer? Make money!", etc etc. You've seen them!
I remember a few years ago my father in law asking me if it was really possible to make money from home, he had seen the signs. He didn't want my mother in law to be out working but they needed her income. At the time I really didn't know if it was possible but I suspected that if it were possible to make as much as these signs were claiming everyone would be doing it.
Even though I now work at home I still don't believe it is possible to make thousands of dollars a day just by calling the number on these signs and I don't suggest you try it or not. Whenever you sign up for any work at home opportunity you really should keep your common sense handy. Do your research and ask lots of questions. Take the time to find out how you are expected to make this kind of money and before you spend your hard earned money find and talk to someone who is really making money and will be honest with you within the company. If it sounds fishy then just walk away.
