A Legitimate Work At Home Business Opportunity

Are you frustrated and tired of being scammed, trying to find a legitimate work at home business opportunity? Whether you’re a mom, a retiree or  you are simply looking for an easy start up business, a free work from home job, or a legitimate work at home business opportunity, then this post is for you.

I’ll share my experience with you, and five (5) great tips to help you avoid the scams and safeguard yourself from that frustration. I’ll also share with you a fantastic work at home business opportunity with which you can get started with right away, absolutely for free! There’s no catch here and I myself was absolutely surprised when I found this opportunity.

You can access this opportunity by clicking on anyone of the links within this post. Or right here if you want to check things out for yourself. I guarantee you you’ll love it! It’s absolutely Free to get started, no you don’t need to worry.

As promised, I want to make sure you have enough information to be able to distinguish the scams from the legitimate opportunities. By the end of this post you should be able to do exactly that. That being said, let’s dive in, shall we?

My search for that legitimate work at home opportunity

When I started looking for an online opportunity, I was looking for a legitimate work at home opportunity. You know, just something I could do online to make some extra money. But my search was not as easy and straightforward as I thought it would have been.  Even so, I did not rush to get into anything. While there are plenty of online opportunities out there, it was important to me to find the right one; one that would be a good fit for me in every way possible.


You’re probably thinking that no such opportunity exists. But then I’d have to disagree with you. While searching I accidentally struck gold! I ended up with a legitimate work at home business opportunity. What’s the difference?

Well two simple reasons really:

  1. I work for myself so I get to determine my level of income.  As opposed to working for someone else earning a limited income.
  2.  Having an online business means that the “Sorry We’re Closed” sign, never goes up. That means I have an opportunity to make money online even while I’m asleep, since my business is operating 24/7, 365.

Okay so how did I go from work at home opportunity to work at home business opportunity?

The funny thing about this is that I literally stumbled onto this opportunity and I have to say thank God for it. I’ve always wanted to have my own business. However an online business was the furthest thing from my mind. Admittedly, I was thinking about a career change. But I was thinking small; extra change.

This opportunity blew my mind!

Like I said, at the time of starting my search, I was not looking for an actual business opportunity. But just a legitimate online opportunity to make extra money. Something that offered flexibility I could fit into my current schedule. I did not have the same hours available every day, so flexibility was one key aspect in my search.

My search included looking at online part-time job opportunities. But I soon realized that was not the kind of opportunity that I wanted. Since I already had a job, the idea of working another “job” for someone else was not something that appealed to me. Now that may be a great option for other individuals, but it just wasn’t something that tickled my fancy so to speak. I did not want to have to deal with more deadlines.


My thought was, having to keep more deadlines, might turn out to be more stress than it’s worth. I don’t know about you, but I am certainly not looking to add any extra stress to my life. 🙂

Some of the opportunities I encountered required a payment up front. What?

Again, this might be a great option for others but I certainly was not about to do that. What am I paying for, exactly? Hosting for my resume in the hopes that someone would see it and hire me? Uh, no, that’s not for me either, I can’t justify that one.

My Modus Operandi?

Once I didn’t like the opportunities I came across I simply left them alone. It makes absolutely no sense being a part of something that you’re not particularly interested in, to try and make something out of it. Doing something like that can be demotivating, to say the least. However, when you choose something that you have an interest in, you’re motivated to make it work. Simply because you’re interested and you look forward to it. Isn’t that right?

Searching for a legitimate work at home business opportunity

So there I was, on vacation continuing my search and I came across this article written by a particular individual who started her online business and made a substantial amount of money and still continues to do so to this day. In the article she was describing her experience of how she started online and how she got to where she was now. She was and still is a very successful online entrepreneur.

Wanting to know more, I clicked on one of her links to get more information and what do you know, I was reading this free lesson about “How to Make Money Online.” Go figure!

Understand how to make money online

Long story short, I was hooked, literally.

Listen, the lesson was so simple and straightforward, I immediately saw the potential. So what did I do?

I read more of the free lessons. The more I read, the more sense it made. I got comfortable with the idea because I could envision the possibilities.

Listen, I made sure I read everything I had access too, even the members’ comments (lol) about the opportunity I was looking at. The comments, I have to say, were also an educational experience as well. There is always something new to learn within this online community. I was not about to pass up this opportunity!

Creating My Free Membership Account

After reading as much as I could, I eventually created my free membership account and joined one of the best online business training communities. And the rest, as they say, is history. I’ve never looked back. Here was an opportunity that allowed me to turn my passion into profit.

My online business revolves around something that I like doing; writing. As such, I don’t have to force myself to do something I don’t like or peddle some product I’m not interested in. I am focusing on something that I like, that in itself is a motivating factor.

The free membership I accessed, provided a great learning opportunity. While I could have kept my membership free for as long as I wanted to, I claimed my bonus and accessed the premium membership option. Which by the way is very affordable. You don’t have to do that, but I’ll share with you two reasons why I converted my free membership:

  1. I wanted to learn all that I possibly could, to make my online business a success and the the premium membership offered much more.
  2. It saved me the time and effort of having to search online for free resources to make my opportunity a success.

I sincerely hope that what I’ve shared with you so far has been insightful. As promised, check out the five (5) tips below to to avoid the scams, the frustration.

Five (5) Great Tips For You

Five great tips to Finding a Legitimate Work At Home Business Opportunity:

 1. Take your time

When you are trying to find a legitimate online opportunity, take your time, don’t rush into anything. Don’t fall for the hype or the get rich quick schemes. There is no such thing as “get rich quick online,” so don’t let anyone fool you into thinking that you can. Like everything else, whatever you choose to do, you’ll have to work at it and it will take some time for you to get “rich.”

Added that, the internet isn’t going anywhere.

Taking your time is really important because if you don’t do that, somewhere along the line, you may find that your selected opportunity may not be all that it was cracked up to be; it glittered but it wasn’t really gold. But you’ve already made your investment; you’re up the creek without a paddle. You’ve been scammed. What do you do then? Try to make something out of nothing or stick with something you’re not interested in?

2. Find a good fit

The same way a prospective employer looks for a good fit between a new employee and the organization, it’s the same way you want to make sure there’s a good fit between you and the opportunity you are looking at. For example, you don’t want an opportunity that involves cold calling, if  you are not into that sort of thing.

For me, having to do something like that, is a migraine waiting to happen and I can certainly do without that. Finding a good fit requires knowledge of the opportunity, which leads me to my third point.

Knowledge is key

3. Knowledge is key

Find out as much as you possibly can about the opportunity before parting with your hard earned cash. For example, the opportunity I accessed, as fantastic as I know it is, it might not be the right one for you, it might be something else, but you won’t know that until you check it out and you can do that absolutely free.

4. Make sure it’s affordable

Some online opportunities charge $1.00 for a 7-day trial and after that you pay a monthly fee if you want to continue. In some cases, that monthly fee could be as much as $67.00 or even more, depending on the opportunity you access.

In some cases you can pay hundreds and thousands to start. If you don’t have that kind of money to spend while trying to figure out this whole online thing, then I would suggest you stay away from those kinds of opportunities, as legitimate as some of them might be. Remember I paid absolutely nothing ($0.00) to access my opportunity.

5. Make sure it’s something that you would like/love doing

There is nothing more demotivating than doing something you don’t like. It’s a dread and you don’t look forward to it as opposed to doing something that you like.

For example, a hobby, an interest, or a special cause that you’re passionate about, would be much more motivating than something you absolutely dread doing.

Keeping these five factors in mind helped me to find the opportunity that was absolutely right for me and it can help you find the opportunity that’s right for you as well.

So What’s Your Passion?

Is it, fishing, music, clothes, gardening, the law of attraction, motivation, inspiration or a cause of some kind? You too can learn how to turn your passion into profit by accessing the same opportunity I did, by creating your free membership account and becoming a member of one of the best online business training communities out there.

If you’re a mom or you’ve been thinking about a career change or you’ve been looking for a legitimate work at home business opportunity, I would like to extend an invitation to you to check out my recommendation and see for yourself if it’s something that could work for you.

Create your free account or better yet, approach it the same way I did, start by accessing the free lessons. Remember, there is absolutely no cost and no risk to you to learn about this opportunity.

try it for free

Actually, I am quite confident that you would like this opportunity, but remember now the rule of thumb is to check the opportunities thoroughly, before making any commitment.

So check it out and I would love to hear from you after you have done exactly that so you can let me know what you think about it. I am excited to hear from you so I am encouraging you to drop me a line in the comment section of my site.

Looking forward to working with you within this online community and I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

      With some of the scams out there, you really have to be a skeptic when searching for a legitimate online opportunity, since all that glitters is not gold and that’s why I wanted to share my experience. If my experience can help others avoid the scams online, then I would have accomplished my objective and that in itself is reward enough. Thanks for the visit and the best wishes and all the best to you as well.

  10. Hey, Vanessa. I have certainly been in many peoples shoes where scams are concerned and it’s not a pleasant experience, I tell ya! You have a great story to tell and thanks very much for the tips too.

    Wealthy Affiliate seems awesome 🙂


  11. Vanessa,

    Congratulations on nailing this post. I love your story of how you Fell Into WA.
    I really appreciate your advice on taking your time.
    So many folks think because you can find stuff online quickly, that you can just as easily setup your own online business, that just is not so.

    It takes time, effort, learning, applying and at times even some heartache crafting an enjoyable informative space like yours here. A place where you offer folks help with whatever they may need that is within your niche.

    If you find anything online that guarantees you any sum of money earned etc. you are on the wrong path, if you wish to truly understand how to Safely Earn Online.

    Keep up the great job Vanessa, thanks again for the great read, all my best,


    • Hi Gary
      I think some people get carried away with the idea of having an online business thinking that because it’s online and has a huge market, it would be easier. I think they miss the point that it takes work to build a successful online business the same way you would a brick and mortar one, and as such they get carried away with these get rich quick schemes an din the end, they end up losing their investment. If they’re not anxious to make a quick dollar but take the time to build a proper foundation, they’ll see long-term benefits.
