Work from home. Is there such a thing? REVIEWED AND REVEALED

Are there real work at home jobs? Yes there are SOME, but, they are also difficult to find. Who doesn’t want to work from home?

Finding work at home employment isn’t easy. I have paid for many “work at home” jobs only to be scammed in the end. I even had one want to do a credit check on me and charge me $500 for training. REALLY? “I don’t think so Tim”

Yes, for the most part there are sign up cost for work at home jobs; Mary Kay, Passion Parties, Avon, just to name a few. All great companies but there is still a slight fee to get started.

Despite all the online advertising you see, there aren’t that many legimate work at home jobs. In fact, there are more scams than real work from home opportunities.

Job seekers who are really motivated and interested in home employment need to spend a good deal of time searching for legitimate opportunities, as well as a significant amount of time weeding through scams.

Many people who work from home started out working in an office, but, were able to arrange with their employer to work some or all of time at home. Some stay at home jobs include the dreadful cold calls, door to door sales, or hosting parties on weekends you would rather spend with your family.

Listing all the illegitimate, B.S. work from home scams would mean a HUGE list and lots of time! PLUS they are constantly changing their names, and websites. Lucky for you I’m a sucker and have tried many. I’m always looking to do something new.

Below are THREE of the BEST and EASIEST source of online AT HOME income I have found.

First we have MCA

This is actually my favorite

What is Motor Club of America? MCA is a REAL BBB accredited business. Go ahead, look it up. 😉 MCA has been around  since 1926 years and has built itself for a highly regarded, and trusted company within that time period with individuals throughout Canada and the U . S .

They  provide a wide range of services and products to drivers, and non drivers through the entire U . S . and Canada which range from roadside assistance, hospital emergency benefits, travel assistance, hotel discounts, plus much more. The rate and coverage are incredible. Definitely something I would feel good about selling to my grandparents.

MCA business associate provides earning possibility for anyone, from work from home mom and dads, students,retirees, p/t and f/t working adults, and professional internet marketers alike.

COST? It only cost $40 (first Two months prepaid membership) becoming a “Total Security Member” and $19.95 each month thereafter. The compensation plan proposed by Motor Club of America is definitely one of the most lucrative above any throughout the industry.

For each memberships sold for just $40 an MCA associate will get an $80 compensation check each week via UPS or direct deposit, meaning that even with 1 $40 “Total Security Membership Package” sale each week you can now easily earn an additional $80 each week or $4,160 annually  by sharing Motor Club of America’s trusted products, and services. 

You will also receive a FREE WEBSITE when you become a TOTAL SECURITY PLAN member that you can market anywhere online…

MCA also has an array of MARKETING TRAINING MATERIAL in each associate members back office which is very powerful, and contains informative marketing strategies you can implement from day one to get your MCA business off of the ground into PROFIT mode ASAP!

Another great thing is that you can ALSO share this great business opportunity offline as well…


To the right is a picture I took with my phone to show the payout system (you will also have to fill out a W9). As you can see I just started and honestly have done nothing but post a few ads on Craigslist and added some links on my blogs. SURPRISINGLY,  now that I know it’s legit and works I want to share with the WORLD! and I WILL be promoting this more!

To Learn More about MCA click the image Below. In my opinion, the capture page could use some work, but the company and product itself has been AMAZING! I can’t complain about the payout either.



So for a while I was hearing all this hype about Empower Network. Two guys one idea story. Both David Wood and David Sharp were at the bottom and had to make it to the top, and they did!!! THOUGHTS? SCAM, RIGHT?! Well I brushed it off until I was hearing about Empower Network conventions and a friend had actually gone. So now I’m really curious. Signed up ($25) and WHOA, this company is truly committed to getting you results. There have great resources, provide you with your own blogging systems AND ads!

The commissions paid to affiliates is at a rate of 100%  That’s right people, you earn 100% commissions on every product.

The basic product is a viral blogging platform completely set up for immediate use upon purchasing  it. There is nothing for the user to do… except blog. There is nothing to set up, it is completely optimized and ready to use.

You receive your own blog on their domain and their domain is already an accepted authority site in the search engine’s eyes.

The other products are trainings to help you build a serious business and income. The Inner Circle product is a series of audio trainings from a variety of internet marketing industry leaders and is updated regularly.


Empower Network Review- Is it Worth It?

For a $25 investment, basically the cost of a website hosting company,  you have the ability to leverage a top domain that has an Alexa ranking of roughly 600 and the fact that it also pays 100% affiliate commissions only makes it a more attractive program. So does this Empower Network Review recommend this program…Yes without hesitation.

Let me share…I just started over the weekend so I have yet to get paid but I have already  3 members and 4 leads. Not bad for 3 days.  Remember the friend I mentioned earlier? Because I haven’t been paid she was kind enough to send me some info on the payout when she first started. She sent it for inspiration so sorry about the personal note lol

I like this company because it’s pretty cut and dry and there are no out of pocket costs. So if you  don’t want to pay anything this is for you.

The whole idea behind this program is to join trial periods for certain items for free or a small cost of only a few dollars. You can keep the product or cancel before the trial ends so you will not be charged anything. Is there any catch? A credit card is required for most programs. Also, you must remain in the trial period for at least 80% of the time. For example, if the trial period runs for 10 days, you must remain in the program for at least 8 days before cancelling if you decide the product isn’t for you.

However, remember when I said you won’t have out of pocket costs to start? That is because, although you may pay a small cost of $2 or $4 for the trial period item, your sponsor will reimburse you, or give you a bonus of, $15 within 24 hours after you become eligible and earn your 1.0 credit at Zip Nada Zilch, thus bringing your start up costs to $0 and no out of pocket costs to you.

With this you actually have to do advertising to refer others. Each time you refer someone and they successfully complete their 1.0 credit, you will receive your $60 payment from Zip Nada Zilch. Then, you pay your referral $5-15 to cover any expenses they may have incurred. You will make $45 per referral. This is unlimited. If you refer one person each week, you will earn $45 a week from this program. If you’re able to refer 10 people a week, you will earn $450 each week. Refer more to earn more.


Great for the Skeptical yet Frugal person

I think this is a GREAT and super easy online source of income if you are not looking to pay out of pocket for resources. My first week I made $135. I can live with that. Since then I have been neglecting to work for ZNZ only because I have been researching and attempting to make a training/tips/tricks site for my team at MCA and EMPOWER NETWORK. I am totally committed to seeing my team succeed and and reach their financial goals. Once my sites are done I will be able to refocus. It’s kinda overwhelming for someone who doesn’t know much about computers lol

Canadian Police Officers being charged for smuggling contraband by the CASELOADS. What contraband? This may surprise you


Niagara Regional Police Service officers have been visiting pizzerias recently asking the same question: where did you get your cheese? Is this Code for something else?

Apparently this is part of a larger internal investigation allegedly by some members of their own force.

CBC News has learned from numerous police sources that charges are expected soon against a few officers who are alleged to have been involved in the movement of caseloads of CHEESE from the U.S. to sell to Canadian pizzerias and restaurants.

The alleged scam involves jamming cases of “brick” cheese — used as a common pizza topping — into their vehicles to smuggle across the border. With U.S. cheese being as little as a third the price it is in Canada, drivers are making $1,000 to $2,000 a trip, according to numerous sources.

Canada Border Services Agency officials say anyone — officer or civilian — caught smuggling large shipments of cheese into Canada would be in violation of the Customs Act for failing to declare, and pay duties on, the controlled goods.

As well, CBSA says it would be a violation for failing to have proper permits and licences from both the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade.

The accused officers either face police act charges (internal discipline) for either discreditable conduct or neglect of duty or Criminal Code charges of breach of trust if any were found to have intentionally plotted to avoid customs and duties.

Offered contraband cheese

Mario Sebastiano, owner of Super Mario’s pizza in Port Colborne, told CBC News he was approached two years ago by a Fort Erie man offering to supply numerous cases of contraband U.S. cheese. The Fort Erie man, along with some police officers, are now at the centre of the cheese smuggling probe.

“He was gonna sell me a case for 150 bucks — normally it’s $240,” Sebastiano said. “He can supply whatever I want. If I want five to six cases a week, he’d give me five to six cases because he can bring it to this side here, no problem.”

Sebastiano said he tried a sample, admitting it was an attractive offer, since his business buys more than $100,000 a year worth of cheese. But he said he turned it down, because it was illegal — and the contraband cheese was inferior.

Among the numerous pizza shop owners questioned by Niagara Regional Police Service officers in recent weeks were the staff at Volcano Pizzeria in Fonthill, west of Niagara Falls.

“Cops came in here a couple of times asking questions about it,” Brandon Elms told CBC News. “We get all our stuff legit. We thought it was a joke at first. Who is going to go around trying to sell smuggled cheese?

“The cheese bandits, the mozzarella mafia!”

But Albert Zappitelli who runs Zappis, a popular Niagara Falls pizzeria, says higher Canadian cheese prices, due to restrictions by the Canadian Dairy Board, and strict controls on cheaper U.S. imports, are driving an underground economy.

“On a monthly basis we are approached by someone who wants to bring American cheese over the border and sell it to us,” said Zappitelli. “What would their penalty be being caught at the bridge with six cases of cheese?

“It’s not like they’re going to put you in handcuffs and take you away.”

The cheese-smuggling investigation stems from information gathered from a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) arrest in April of Niagara Regional Police Service Const. Geoffrey Purdie in Buffalo on charges of conspiracy to smuggle more than half a million dollars in anabolic steroids and other drugs into Canada.

According to U.S. court documents, a joint Border Enforcement Task Force has been using surveillance and at least one confidential informant in an ongoing probe into the steroid allegations of Purdie and others, including civilians.

CBC News has been unable to confirm which specific officers will face charges, let alone whether Const. Purdie himself is directly linked to the cheese allegations. He has refused repeated requests for an interview.

Officers under investigation

The Niagara Regional Police Association won’t discuss the allegations against the officers, but confirms a number of its members have been formally notified they are under internal investigation.

Jeff McGuire, Niagara’s new police chief, has refused to discuss recent shake-ups at the Fort Erie detachment or what further charges or discipline actions may be forthcoming. He has only confirmed the suspension of Const. Purdie due to allegations of drug smuggling.

“He’s been suspended with pay, and our professional standards [group] … are conducting an investigation … but we first have to allow the American investigation to continue and be completed,” McGuire said last month.

McGuire also confirmed the suspension of an officer from Purdie’s Fort Erie detachment following Purdie’s arrest, but he would not discuss why.
