Most people jump into working at home without understanding what its all about. Or they look for the wrong types of work in the wrong places. As a result they run the risk of getting scammed.

Nearly everyone who successfully works at home taps into something they already know, do, or love. Searching “work at home” at Google is just as likely to get you involved in a scam or a work-at-home op that you don’t like. Just like you’d start with your skills and experience in a traditional job search, you want to do the same when working at home, whether in a job or home business. However, you can also include your passions, hobbies and interests, as many have turned those into home-based income as well.

3) Match your talents and interest to money making ideas.

Is there a job related to your skills? Is there a need for your talents on a freelance basis? Can you turn that hobby into a home business? Work-At-Home Success has a free work-at-home job board, or check out the many articles on home business and success stories of people who made working at home a reality.

Still Stuck? Tips to Using WAHS…

Finding Information

There is a ton of information here and it can be hard to find it no matter how hard I try to organize it. Here are some tips to finding what you need and keeping up-to-date on working at home:

  1. Choose your general topic area from the menu bar. At the top of the page you’ll find a menu with “Start Here” (this page) and other general topic areas. These pages and resources can help you get started.
  2. Select a topic form the category list. In the sidebar you’ll find “Categories” with a drop down menu where you can select a topic covered at WAHS such as “telecommuting” or “blogging.”
  3. Use the search box. Are you looking for a specific topic not found on the menu or categories. Use the search box underneath the categories box in the sidebar to find what you’re looking for.

Staying Informed

New jobs, information, resources and success stories go up every week. To make sure you don’t miss out:

  • Follow WAHS on social media, in particular Facebook or Twitter. While WAHS is active on most networks, these two resources receive the most updates. Social media link options are to the right in the sidebar.
  • Subscribe to the WAHS News. Not only are you kept up to date on new stuff, but subscribers get exclusive jobs and content delivered directly to your email. Sign up in the sidebar or subscription box above.

    I’m realy interested in work at home doing something I love
    Technology, gadgets any kind of its,
    I can help people with thier gadget issue or I may be trainned for you for any projecpt.

  2. LTruex says:

    Hi Angel, Helping people set up and use their gadgets sounds like a great home business, especially if you’re helping businesses with things like computer and network set up. Another option is to get a job doing technical support. Many places are hiring this type of work including Apple and Kelly Services. Good luck with this idea!

    Lesile…..I have a full time job….get off at 2:30 summer, 3:00 winter,online from about 4 till 11 pm…..would something to do online…..a H.B.B. Can you help me…..?

    Billy

  4. LTruex says:

    Hi Billy, I’m not able to simply say “go do this”. What to do from is something you need to find out for yourself. It’s based on your skills, interests, passions and experiences. The website has lots of great information and resources to help you. Working online can include so much…blogging, affiliate marketing, freelancing, eBay, etc. So start with you and what you’d like to be doing. Then from there, research how to get it done. Good luck.

    Hi Leslie:
    I have been purchasing Melaleuca products for over two years now, and I absolutely stand by their products.

    I joined a “team” and have not had any success with this team. As of right now, I am interested in going further with Melaleuca, however, I am not getting the help to get started from the team I joined over two years ago.

    Can I branch out on my own? If I can branch out on my own, where in the world do I start? Melaleuca does have a training program, and it worked for people twenty years ago, but cold calling really doesn’t work any more these days. Many are on a no call list. and talking to people I know, well, they are not thrilled in the monthly point system that needs to be maintained in order to buy their products at a discounted price.

    I am confused, and I just do not know where to start. Do you have any suggestions that may help or know of a good mentor that can help me get started? I absolutely love this company and their products.

    Thank you:)

    -Anne.

    Hi Anne, A team that offers training and support is valuable, but not necessary if you have the desire to succeed. My suggestion is to check your report for your upline information and work your way up the line. Focus on the 7 steps Melaleuca suggests which include building your list and introducing the company to people. While Melaleuca may still suggest traditional ways to build your list, you can use other methods such as online marketing, as long as you abide by the company’s rules. You can get an approved website (check with Melaleuca for details) and promote it through a variety of methods. There are many good online marketing books you can read or articles online that can help you. I also offer a 4-week course on building a direct sales business through Work-At-Home Success University. While the initial lessons are about choosing a company, there is a good deal of information on marketing and introducing your product/business plan. Good luck!

    i hv followed ur newsletter for abt 3yrs and am interested in taking part in this work at home business but first can African(Ghana) take part. and so what are the procedures . can i get work at home business for free.thanks

  8. LTruex says:

    Hi Francis, Thank you for being a long-time subscriber! Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with the home business laws in all countries, including Ghana. I’d suggest you check with your local area business government office for information. The usual basics are that you need to find a great idea that you love and that there is a market who’ll buy, create a business plan, set up your business (licenses and permits in accordance to where you live), set up a marketing plan and launch your business. Good luck.

    Hi, Leslie
    I have been looking for a work at home job for about 6mos-1yr I have also been offered serveral opportunities but they want you to pay for background check and other things so i am very skeptical about these kind of jobs.. I need help, tips or something into landing a job offer. I am hooked up with several other at home sites like this one but , i still get nothing. Christmas is coming up and i have a family i need to take care of. PLEASE HELP!!!!

  10. LTruex says:

    Hi Bianca, You’re right to be skeptical when asked for money, although many employers are now passing on the cost of a background check to applicants, so that is one thing you can pay for. However, you don’t want to pay for other things such as getting set up on payroll or prove you’re “serious”. The fact that you’ve received offers is a good sign and shows you’re doing something right. Unfortunately, getting a job can take time, so keep doing what you’re doing. Good luck. – Leslie

  11. Yes, I need help getting started. I’m somewhat of a newbie at this.

  12. LTruex says:

    There’s a ton of information at WAHS, but working at home starts with you. Learn what’s involved and then figure out the skills and interests you have, and match it to a viable work-at-home option. Good luck.

  13. Judeson says:

    Hi Leslie,
    am really interested in this WAHS, am a man that have passion for achievements, please ma i have two girls who depend on me for education and welfare, i lost my job due to retrenchment which took place earlier this year, its been very difficult for me. I really need your help. How do i start, where do i start from? am not really conversant with the whole thing, rather am willing to give it time, am also willing to learn from you. I will be overjoyed if you can be my mentor.

    Thanks in anticipation
    Judeson.

  14. LTruex says:

    Hello Judeson, Working from home isn’t that different from working outside the home. It still involves finding a skill or experience you have and someone to hire you either in a job or freelance. So the first step is to determine what skills you have to offer. Then you need to create a resume and find employers who need the skills you offer. Another option is to start your own business. There is a great deal of information on Work-At-Home Success and I’d encourage you to read it. The information is there, you just need to read it, make a plan, and then follow through. Good luck.

  15. emily sol says:

    Hello my name is Emily, I am really interested into working from home. I do not know where to start. I love to be on the computer, love doing hair and creating things any help?

  16. LTruex says:

    Hi Emily, You’ve come to the right place. Work-At-Home Success has a ton of information to help you find the right option for you. I recommend starting on the WAHS Start Here page as it will walk you through an overview of the work-at-home info you should know before you start. From there, it’s a matter of matching the skills and experience you have to a job or work-at-home idea. There are many computer jobs depending on the skills you have (transcritpion, captioning, writing, coding etc). If you enjoy doing hair, you could make YouTube videos and/or a blog using ad networks to earn income. If you like making things, you can sell them on Etsy. The options are endless. The key is to not look for fast, easy, rich, and instead look for legitimate opportunities. Good luck.
