One of the most common questions I see on Facebook group pages from SAHM’s is “Are there any legitimate work from home jobs?”
And the most common answer they receive come from direct sales agents who are looking to grow their team.
While I have several friends who are in direct sales and are very successful with it, it’s not for everyone. Typically, when this question is asked, it’s because people are wanting a job that consists of a constant paycheck, not having to rely on parties or sales to generate income.
After doing some research to see what is out there and what is legitimate I have found these sites to have the best reviews and outcomes.
