Great Jobs in Which to Work at Home!  Compliments for Clark Howard!

With the dramatic changes in the employment landscape in recent years, more people are looking to work from home and find freelance work. The problem is that there are  many ripoff work-from-home outfits that claim to find you jobs  for an upfront fee. They’re just trying to make a quick buck off you.  Below are some sites and companies Clark has determined to be  legitimate. Of course, you should check them out thoroughly yourself  before getting involved. Good luck!
AlpineAccess.com – Virtual call center provider using home-based customer service agents. They charge $45 for a required background check.
Arise.com – Answer calls, e-mail and chat requests for global companies at home. (Some users have reported a $13 background check fee, a $99 assessment test fee and other charges.)
ConvergysWorkatHome.com – Be a home agent providing customer care, human resources and billing services
eJury.com – Online mock juries and focus groups allow large groups of people to help attorneys determine case value, develop case themes, find the facts to emphasize, and learn “public” attitudes.
Elance.com – Find clients and freelance jobs offered by  small businesses to do freelance web design, programming, SEO,  graphic design and more.
Fiverr.com – People share   things they’re willing to do for $5. The low price is  often a loss leader allowing a contractor to develop a client base for  their particular area of expertise. • IntelliCare.com – Call center company that provides clinical and non-clinical telephone  services to health plans, healthcare providers, and care managers  nationwide. Anyone who is not a qualified nurse needs to work at one of  their their bricks-and-mortar call centers, not from home.
LiveOps.com – Virtual call center using remote and home-based agents. All  applicants are required to undergo a mandatory background check that  costs $50. For an optional fee of $175, a more extensive background  check allows you to work with specific Fortune 200 companies that have  partnered with LiveOps.com. You also have to install a second,  dedicated, telephone landline for this work — only to be used for  LiveOps work. • oDesk.com – Find work as freelancer doing coding and web work, business consulting, writing, planning, newsletters and more.
OnlineVerdict.com – Provides online case review and juror feedback services to attorneys.
RedBeacon.com – Market your services in your local   area to provide services for others. This website only serves select metro areas.
TaskRabbit.com – Market your services in your local   area to run errands for others. For example, if you’re good at building Ikea furniture, you   might position yourself as a “rabbit” who gets the furniture at the store and then assembles it for others. This website only serves select metro areas. • TeamDoubleClick.com – Be a virtual assistant
WAHM.com – An online magazine for work-at-home moms
WAHVE.com – Offers remote contract opportunites for retired insurance industry workers
West.com – Be an “at-home-agent,” with duties including obtaining, entering and  verifying customer information, answering questions, resolving issues,  explaining sales features or offering additional products or services. (Some  users have reported being asked for their Social Security number when  filling out the Work Opportunity Tax Credit [WOTC] info. However,  filling out the WOTC is strictly voluntary — not required.)
WorkingSolutions.com – Be a home-based customer service agent
WorkplaceLikeHome.com – An active discussion forum where you’ll discover lots of job leads
Zintro.com – Market yourself as a consultant based on your area of expertise. (Unlike other sites, Zintro requires the hiring business to put the money it intends to pay a freelancer into escrow. Once the work is completed, Zintro releases the money into the freelancer’s account, generally through PayPal. )
2020Research.com – Market research services for professional marketing researchers, including online focus groups, hosted focus groups and online surveys.

One bit of advice before you take the leap into a work-at-home  opportunity: Take an inventory of your talent, add a dash of creativity  to your thinking and come up with a plan that suits you.
• Can you sew? Do alterations. Handy with crafts? How about making costume jewelry and gifts? • If you have a good grasp of a particular subject, tutors are always needed. • Good with a computer? Consider teaching others how to use one. You  might also want to do computer work for college and graduate students.  Try putting up flyers around your area as well as the local colleges and  universities. • Everyone’s busy these days. Consider the needs of your friends and neighbors and provide a service that can save them time. Could they use help with errands or odd jobs? Do they need pet or child care?
The list can go on as long as you  align your talents with services or products others need. Be imaginative  and create a job! If you choose to go the standard work-at-home route,  heed these warnings from the Federal Trade Commission and the Better Business Bureau.

Greetings Beautiful Family and Friends!


   How are you?  I trust that each of you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  It is my prayer that you have an equally wonderful Christmas and New Year!  I want to thank each of you for helping to make Tony's 50th Birthday and the 10th Anniversary of Chick-fil-A at Turner Hill Road quite special!  Below (at the end of this email) are photos from the whole month of November.  They are from Tony's "5 Birthday Galas Honoring 5 Decades of Service to Others" and 10 Events commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the 1,000th Chick-fil-A.  How can I put this.... Er... Umm... the photo album below is not short!

Winking smile

  I condensed it to 200 photos though.  Actually, we've got well over 1,000 photos from the different events!   Also, below (and attached) is a Special Thank You letter from me to each of you!  I just want to say that I thank God for each of you!  It was because of you that Tony's Birthday and the 1,000th Chick-fil-A's Anniversary was so very special!  You made it quite memorable for him!  I have attached a Thank You Photo Card from Tony.  Within the next few weeks, he will be mailing out cards as well!   Thank you so very much and have a wonderful week!   Leslie

Happy Holidays Beautiful Family and Friends!

Each year, I like to send out an Open Letter of Thanksgiving. If you would indulge me momentarily, I would like to extend my gratitude to each of you as it relates to Tony’s 50th Birthday Celebration and the 10thAnniversary of the 1,000th Chick-fil-A. I want to begin by saying that I thank God for each and every one of YOU! I am blessed to have you in my life! From the moment that I shared my vision for Tony’s 50th and the 1,000th Chick-fil-A’s 10th, you have encouraged me every step of the way! We at Chick-fil-A like to call such a BOLD vision a “BHAG” or “Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal”!!! After all, who plans and implements 10 Days of Celebration for a restaurant while simultaneously having “5 Galas for 5 Decades of Service” for her husband? I mean…….. who does that?!!!!

But you believed in and supported this special vision! You were so kind to help pay tribute to Tony and the 1,000th Chick-fil-A in such a meaningful way! Thanks so much to the 250 individuals that wrote letters representing their families and organizations. Thanks so much for coming out to the “10 Days of Celebration” to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the 1,000thChick-fil-A! I really appreciate the Sassy Seniors of Chick-fil-A at Turner Hill Road for hosting the kickoff party which was also a surprise Birthday Bash for Tony! Several of the seniors made speeches alongside dignitaries in the community. Thanks to Dr. James Flanagan, president of Luther Rice Seminary for the prayer of dedication. Thanks to Lithonia Mayor Tonya Peterson Anderson, DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis and Congressman Hank Johnson for issuing proclamations designating November 1 as Chick-fil-A at Turner Hill Road Day! Thanks Mrs. Mereda Johnson, J. T. Robinson, Mr. Muhammad of Rock Chapel Elementary, family and friends for coming out!

We had such fun during the 10 Days showing appreciation to YOU –our wonderful customers! Thank you for 10 years of support! Special thanks to the Stonecrest Businesses that helped us honor Our 10 Beautiful Roses in a thoughtful, tangible way. We saved the BEST for last with Truett Trivia Thursday! It was an opportunity to pay homage to our wonderful founder, S. Truett Cathy! We thank God for Truett and his beautiful family! On Thursday, our guests played Truett Trivia and won FREE prizes and food coupons!

If I lived to be 103, I could not thank the All Star Team at Chick-fil-A at Turner Hill Road enough for your help! You helped with the 10 Days of Celebration. You helped with 5 Galas Celebrating Tony’s 5 Decades of Service. On top of that, you hosted your own Birthday Bash for Tony and the November Team Members! And although I encouraged you not to buy such an extravagant gift, the 10 managers gave Tony and Ipad 2 for his Birthday! How cool is that! Thanks for your heartfelt presentations throughout the month.

You can imagine that something like this takes much planning and even more praying! I want to thank the prayer warriors that I call the Talented Ten! I appreciate their intercessory prayer, advice, encouragement, being a shoulder to cry on when it got a little rough and for forming an impenetrable circle around me against negativity. They are my mother Lizzie, my sisters Sissie and Natalie, my daughter Antasha, my aunt Helen, my cousin Sybil, my best friend Lisa, my Soror Neva, my aunt Alzena and my friend Kimberly Wigley. Ladies and Gents, I have learned the importance of surrounding oneself with positive people and focusing on positive things!

Thank you to all that helped with the Lou Walker Center Bash! Everyone has been telling me how beautifully decorated the party was! That’s thanks to my Soror, Shelia O’Rear of CSO Enterprise and her friend, designer Martha Parker. The delicious meal was prepared by my sister Natalie Reese! On that night, Tony received proclamations for Tony Royal Day in (1) Lithonia, Georgia, (2) DeKalb County and (3) the ENTIRE 4th District of Georgia! The Honorable Hank Johnson came out to make this presentation and gave Tony a Congressional pen! Mayor Tonya Peterson Anderson did so and gave Tony the Key to the City of Lithonia! Commissioner Larry Johnson did so and a representative on behalf of CEO Burrell Ellis gave Greetings from the County. We were certainly honored to have the President of Chick-fil-A, Inc. come out to bring Greetings! Dan and Rhonda Cathy are a blessing! Oh! And“how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel!” Thanks to our dear Pastor and First Lady, Dr. Kerwin B. Lee and Mrs. Yolanda T. Lee for joining us! Special thanks to Dr. Collette L. Gunby, Pastor and Mrs. Leaphart, Pastor and Mrs. Rollins, Pastor and Mrs. Mosley, Pastor and Mrs. Roberts, Pastor and Mrs. Winfrey and all of the ministers of the Gospel! Thanks to Bill and Sandra Leavell for such exquisite presentations! Thanks to Dr. Gunby and Tony’s best friend Danny for helping me present the Birthday Trip to Las Vegas! Thanks to my mom and siblings for hosting a phenomenal, combined 50th Bash for Tony and my brother Billy with Pastor Allan Oneal as the speaker!


Again, I thank God for each of you being a blessing in our lives!


With much Sincerity!
