Legitimate work at home jobs can be hard to find, but somewhere among all the clutter of scams and schemes there are genuine legitimate work at home opportunities to be found. The simplest tip is to be very wary of any over-hyped claims. Earning $10,000 in your first week, while not impossible, is highly unlikely.
Human nature is always attracted to the glitzy, the glittering and the gaudy. It's pretty much how we are. Offers that say, “You can make a steady $400 a week, perhaps even more with some extra effort, " are plain boring. While a claim that says, “Grab your chance to pour $1,000 into your bank account today and every day!" is much more exciting.
It's the boring claims that are actually more believable though. Plenty of people are earning around $400 a week. It's not an exciting amount, and plenty of people earn much more, but it's believable. Most people can see themselves earning that figure, and while they would prefer $1,000 a day, they can't really see that happening very easily.
Being able to hold down legitimate work at home has many benefits. You are your own boss, so there's no one to answer to. That has its downside too, of course. You can't just laze around all day; you do have to work, and work quite hard too most of the time. But most people who have tried it don't ever want to go back to the 9 to 5 grind.
Most people who seek legitimate work at home are desperate. They may have been laid off work and need something to replace it fast. Or perhaps the bills are piling higher and higher and something has to be done NOW! This is not the best situation to be in, and not the best way to start a legitimate work at home business.
However, with the right approach you can find good legitimate work at home. At ProConsumerGuides.org they tested 37 legitimate work at home programs. Only two met with their approval. In other words, some 95% failed to produce income and were considered “next to useless" in their own words.
While ProConsumerGuides.org does not list the 35 programs that failed in their tests, they do list the ones that passed. One of those is LegitOnlineJobs.com (this site actually claims that 99% of income opportunities are scams). In the tests conducted the team made good profits using LegitOnlineJobs.com.
Of course, just because one organization failed to make 35 programs work doesn't necessarily mean that no one could. That's the problem with tests; they fail for one person, but might well work for another. For this reason you should only use website reviews as a guide and do your own tests to make sure.
There are many good legitimate work at home programs available for use. They perhaps won't all work for everyone, and some won't work for anyone, but there are plenty that will work for just about anyone. You will have to work at it and give it a chance, but that's life!
