Looking for something you can do in your spare time from home to make some extra income, this may be what you are looking for. You can do this where ever you have an internet connection. With a little effort and determination you could help make ends meet. Go to and look around, it has helped me and it could do the same for you. Please do not send any resumes.

After I did little research on this company, EPS Prosperity Hotline, I found out that they are a scam – you send them 25 dollars, and they send you written advertisements which you can post on sites like Craigslist to direct people to a sales funnel (your website) which will also lead them to create a website and post EPS’s pre-written advertisements on sites like Criaglist…I think you get the picture. There’s no tangible product or service offered here. If you want to read about one person’s experience with this  company you can do so here.

If you want to sell a product or service, and you’re into health and fitness, I would suggest a company like Beachbody, or many of the other companies that offer those types of products. You can find out more about different multi-level marketing companies on message boards like – you can find listings in “Health and Wellness” under “Sales Companies,” or you may be able to find information in the “Biz Ops” Section of Workplacelikehome.  If you’re not into health and wellness, there are many other companies that have legitimate products and services you can promote – you can find out about some of them on and Workplacelikehome, and also on my two favorite work from home blogs, Work at Home Adventures and Real Ways to Earn Money Online.
