Are you looking to start a work at home business because perhaps you've lost your job or need to increase your income, but not sure where or how to look? Below you're going to find information to help you in your quest for the perfect work at home business.
As you know, the Internet is the information Super Highway and an awesome tool to find just about anything you need to know, including work at home businesses you can start. Of course, not all the information on the Internet is reliable or accurate and there are lots of scams out there, especially when it comes to starting a work at home business.
Where and how to look
The first thing you need know is where to look for reliable work at home businesses. If you plug in the term "work at home business" into Google you will get 486 million results. So obviously that's not a very resourceful method.
Even if you narrow the search down a bit by using the term "reliable work at home business", you still get over 24 million results. If you look at the first few results, you'll see a schlew of different websites all offering "reliable work at home business".
Therefore, to find truly reliable home businesses, the best way is to ask someone you trust who is working from home successfully. Ask them how they got started, what resources they used and if they can refer you to a website or forum to help you get started.
But what if you don't know anyone? Perhaps you don't know anyone personally, but I'd venture to guess there is probably someone you know in your community who works from home successfully. Odds are they have a website or their phone number is in the phone book. Give them a call to see if you can have a few minutes of their time to talk about how they discovered their work at home business and how they got started.

1. How did you find a reliable work at home business?

3. Would you recommend any specific forums or membership sites to join?
