Will you sell your soul to make a buck?

So it's finally official.. We are in a recession and have been for over a year.   What does this mean when it comes to working at home?  It means more people are looking for ways to make extra money at home.  It also means if you are already working from home you are probably looking for more ways to supplement your income from home.

Which brings us to the point of this article.  There are many make money from home ventures floating around.  Every work at home forum you visit has the spammers.. you've seen them.   A common ploy is the "As seen on Oprah" work at home scam.  It's a cash gifting scam similar to the old fashioned chain letters, "send one dollar to this person, then they send one to you and the next three people". 

That one is a pretty obvious work at home scam but there are others that aren't so obvious.   There are all the "Buy my ebook and resell it" schemes.  Not really scams but they don't really help the person buying the book either. 

Then we have another classic, "Data Entry at Home".  Send in $35 and they tell you how to post the same ad and get money when people request the training materials from you.  The training materials, of course tell your customer to place the ad and do the same thing all over again.   This is also ran as a work from home job under "Processing Orders" or "Order Processor". 

My point is, there are lots of legitimate ways to make money from home for free but none of us are getting rich.   It can be tempting to try one of these work at home schemes or scams just to make a little extra money.   You may have already even thought about trying one of them out. 

What's stopping you?  Your sense of honesty?  Your integrity and morals?  You just KNOW it isn't the "right thing" to do?  

Good for you.  Give yourself a pat on the back and KNOW that there is something out that WILL help you boost your business or help you find that perfect work from home job.  The good people DO come out on top.
