If you have been trying to find a job working from home, you may already know of the fool’s gold and thousands of scams out there. Work from home jobs are prevalent on the internet; but many of them are not genuine and full of hot air (e.g. “make $10,000 per month with just 15 hours per week!”). Yeah right, as if….pull the other one.

That is why you have to be really careful about where you look for a work from home job and what type of job you are looking for. Remember that if they do not say what you will be doing, then it is more than likely a MLM (multi-level marketing) or pyramid scheme.

Don’t part with your money if buying into a home based business opportunity.  Ensure that you have done your due diligence and sought at least one unbiased review from a friend, family member or an Accountant. Make an informed choice and make sure you do your research first. Don’t be swept away in the belief that you can earn thousands for minimal hours. Keep up to date with the latest scams; visit Scamwatch, the ACCC and Fido.

Remember there are no get-rich-quick schemes and beware of job offers that require you to pay an upfront fee. Beware of products or schemes that claim to guarantee income or winnings.
Lifestyle Careers and Work At Home Mums is the first place to start looking for a work from home job because there is a real person checking the listings and ensuring they are genuine. All jobs are carefully screened to ensure that we are providing our Job Seekers with elements of flexibility and professionalism.

The type of jobs you might seek and find depend on your skill-base and they could include;

  • Contract for a small business (in admin/marketing/telesales) that allows work from home
  • A freelancer (designer/PR professional/writer/developer) or consultant to businesses, and seek your own client projects
  • A virtual personal assistant, who does all their work remotely
  • A home-based mini-business, like party plan/scrapbooking consultant
  • Or turn a passion into a business… like wedding photography, teaching kids dancing or music, or perhaps de-cluttering/organising homes.

Of the “work from home” positions recently advertised for employees, some were for recruitment consultants (commission based), many firms want home workers to make sales calls (if they have fast internet with VOIP), and others offer big rewards for a sales agent with a territory.

Just type “work from home” in the job search box on the major job search sites and you will find there are training and systems for all types of businesses including:  assisting people to lose weight, life coaching, personal development products, etc.

As a number of us who start up home-based businesses find, the more motivated you are to working from home, the more likely you will be to make a go of it and really get stuck into your new mission. Just ‘dipping your toe in the water’ doesn’t work, as any work-from-home business requires a lot of motivation and perseverance.
