Chat Operators Wanted *Urgently*

Courtesy of

Most of the work at home forums I visit have a message on them today from Chat Connect.  Chat Connect is a chat service for adults to make friends.  They say there is no "adult" talk, just chatting. They are looking for people from the US, Canada, and Australia to text chat.

From what I understand, in order to get paid you have to do 250 texts in a week and that you get paid at a rate of .08 per text (USD).  So this will give you $20 a week and winds up working out to $4 or $5 per hour according to those I know who have started working for them.

As far as hours, I believe they have set shifts and that you can choose which shifts you want to cover.

If you are interested in this email Mike at  He will give you more information, ask you questions, and get you set up with training.

This is a verified legit job (believe it or not)!

Is There Really Such a Thing As Passive Income?

"Passive Income" by bplane

If you’ve done research on work at home for any length of time, you’ve probably run into articles and web pages promising you smart passive income opportunities.   What passive income implies is that you can sit back idly and collect a paycheck for doing very little or nothing at all.  Do opportunities like this really exist?

One way people claim to earn passive income is through blogging.  As a blogger, I can tell you that any income I have ever earned through any of my blogs has been far from passive.  If you’re a blogger, you know as well as I do that you work for every penny that you accrue.  Not only do you do your writing but you are also endlessly driving traffic to your site.  Posting up an article or blurb with some ads around it will do nothing for you.  You also need to develop SEO and work practically around the clock to draw an audience.  In order to get paid for sponsored posts or product reviews you require a certain number of monthly visitors and a good page ranking.  All of that takes a lot of effort to achieve and to maintain.  There is nothing passive about it!

There are also systems that promise that you will be able to sit back and collect residual passive income from multiple streams.  To me, it is very obvious that this income is not passive.  All you have to do is look at the other people who are involved in the system and who are trying to recruit others.  They are online constantly posting on forums and social media, building lists, and posting blogs in an attempt to earn “passive” income.  They are not sitting on a beach while their bank accounts magically increase.

MLM home businesses work the same way.   You do not earn a passive income from them.  The work you put into the businesses determines how much you will get out of them, if anything at all. Even once you build a downline, you can not sit back and just collect.  Your downline needs to perform and so do you in order to get paid.  You need to maintain your own business and motivate and help others to build theirs.  Then, because people often drop out or stop working, you have to consistently replenish your downline by recruiting new people.

I have said it before many times that there are no get rich quick schemes that live up to their promises and if you want to make money from home, you will have to work for it.  Certainly, the work may get easier but there will always be work to do. That’s why I named this blog Work at Home Wisdom and not Earn Money From Home for Doing Nothing Wisdom.   

As nice as it would be to get a paycheck for nothing, I have to say that I enjoy all of the work I do from home.  If I do something that I don’t enjoy, I drop it and replace it with something else.  That is the beauty, in my opinion, of working from home.  There are so many options and there is so much freedom in it.  When you are choosing for yourself what you are going to do, what hours you will work, and where you are going to work from, the grind itself isn’t bad at all and can even be a great source of pride.  

So while you may not ever find the elusive passive income from home, you can and will find plenty of active income opportunities you can do as a telecommuter.  And really, work isn't so bad when it's on our own terms, don't you agree?

Direct Interactions Hiring Again!

I posted some jobs from Direct Interactions last year and I decided to follow up with them today and see if they were still looking for agents.

Like last year, they are still hiring call center agents to handle calls from people asking questions about a parking meter system.  Some callers will have had their vehicle immobilized due to unpaid parking and will need your help in fixing this.  You need to remain calm and helpful throughout the calls.  Must be available to work a minimum of 30 hours per week M-F between the hours of 2pm and 6pm.  However, this is a 24/7 operation so you may have other hours as well. $9.35/hour for training, $10/hour once work starts.



The other position they are hiring for is support for fitness/wellness software.  You will not only be taking calls but also responding to emails.  Hours will be between 4pm and 2am.  $9.50 for first 90 days. $10/hour after 90 days.
