Working from Home

If any of you are like me, then this economy has probably put a big dent in your cash flow. We're lucky in that my husband still has a job though his hours, and therefore his paycheck have definitely been cut. I count ourselves lucky though--there are plenty of other people who weren't so lucky and lost their jobs.

I've been looking for more Work at Home opportunities, and it seems they're being advertised everywhere. Before I feel comfortable listing them though, I try to research them, because the last thing I want is to be responsible for referring someone to a scam, but I still caution you to do some homework of your own before signing up for anything.

I found a couple of sites that I'm willing to share here. One of them is OGC Work at Home Directory. The other site is called My-Data-Team (Not to be confused with My Data Team with no hyphens). I found a thorough, and more importantly, independent review on My-Data-Team on a site called Data Entry at Home, where you can also find other work from home jobs listed.

You can view the other job opportunities I've found so far by looking in my labels here, or scrolling down to my Make Money links on this site. I wish you all luck in your pursuits and welcome any input or knowledge you may have on this subject. In the meantime, I'll continue my research in this area:)

*After further investigation, while I won't say it's a scam, I wouldn't recommend My-Data-Team to my readers. While it may not be a scam, it may not be all it claims to be. If you have experience with this company, please feel free to share it here with us.


  1. Thanks for sharing, I'm also looking for ways to an extra :D But I need to ask, is My-Data-Team the same with all those data entry companies asking for a membership fee first before yuou can start receiving jobs?

  2. Great site. Very informative and useful, particularly during tough times.

    I just put up my own blog, Financial Conservation, to address the current situation from a little different angle.

    Thanks for all your time and effort - quite a bit of work here.

  3. Hi, Modern Mom, thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment. From what I've read on that company, there is a fee (under $50) for the tutorial, which according to the very detailed review on it (link is also included above), is made worth it with all that it includes. Once you've done that, everything else is free. No, you don't have to pay to see jobs, ever. They say that if a company is asking you to do that, then they're not a reputable company.

    Now, I haven't pursued this yet myself, so I can only go off of what my research has told me, but I think based on what I've found so far, that it sounds legitimate.

  4. Hi..
    I really enjoyed reading your blog and will come back and read more. Thanks for the review on linkreferral too!

    I also have blog, and will be writing more details about preventing scams and what to watch out for on my "The Netted Web" site.

    Good luck with your endeavours!
