There are a few ways that you can legitimately make money from home. Becoming an online tutor, selling your gold (either used or old), running customer service from your home, or selling your crafts or old stuff.
HOWEVER, if you want to work from home, you should ALWAYS do your own research. It's a MUST. You do NOT want to get stuck or trapped. Go to the Better Business Bureau website, and read reviews on the web. You could learn a lot.
