    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know of any legit work from home jobs. My mom just got a laptop and has been unemployed for sometime, now she wants to get back working and I commend her. I'm not looking for her to get into IM because it'll be extremely difficult for her and I'm not there to teach her either, plus she prob. won't like it anyway. So does anyone know of any like company based work from home jobs or non-scammy jobs?

    Thanks!

    She could try fiverr, there are lots of gigs that don't require IM knowledge.

    She can actually try many things. It all realy depends on what skills she has. Try odesk, freelancer and such sites if you think she can help others with those type of jobs. If she is more into creating things, then i would suggest Etsy.

    Since i am not from US i cant help you with legit work from home companies since i dont know any. Good luck!

    Work from home call center? I think you have to go through a bunch of bogus training though.

    If she is up for the task, its nto even so bad idea. She can call companies for services and he on the other side can get the job done, so they would be working together.

    Look on Craiglist, there are some interesting positions. Since you're on BHW you'll quickly know which ones are real.

    Content writing if she is good with words. She can also try voice overs or niche specific video testimonials (there are several products or services aimed to middle aged moms that would benefit more from a testimonial by someone that looks like a legit user of that product of service, than by some 20 year old punk, which is your typical video testimonial fiverr actor/actress).

    But her best bet is to invest 3 months to learn a new skill that's not so tough to master in a short period of time like learning to use GIMP to make some nice quality logos, banners, ebook covers, etc, or even Wordpress to start selling basic sites to locals.

    If she can write there are always opportunities for doing content development for websites, blog writing, press releases etc.
