  • I am looking for work at home opportunities with no investment/start-up costs up front. I am a full-time online college student on Disability. While I am truly grateful for the help, Disability doesn’t cover ALL the bills/expenses! Therefore, I am actively looking for something to do. . .I need some type of work that doesn’t involve having to spend a fortune to get started. After all, the key is to MAKE money, not spend it, right? I would even be willing to pay start-up costs/fees AFTER getting started if someone would just give me a chance. I am 51 yrs. old & a 1st-time college student. I need some type of work I can do at home to fill in the gaps, so to speak, and cover expenses that I can’t on what I have coming in every month. Can you help/make any suggestions? I have run across SO MANY “opportunities” that say I can start working RIGHT AWAY, until I get to the part where it says, “Send money now!” Then when I try to log out of these sites, I get the window asking me to wait. . .companies are then offering to LOWER their start-up fees, etc. if I continue! Again, my point is, I am trying to make money, not spend it! I am only trying to make ends meet, like every other American. And who knows when our Economy will REALLY go down the tubes, right? If you have anything that may help me, please let me know! Have brand new computer, etc. & am ready to go NOW! Thanks & look forward to hearing from anyone that may have some VALID ideas! 😉
