If you're looking for a work from home job, you probably do not want to spend a ton of money to get started. In fact, you do not have to spend a cent to get started. One of the best free work at home assembly jobs I've come across is jewelry making.
The job is so easy, anyone can do it. You do not have to be artistically inclined to do well, though if you are you'll probably have a better time. The company you work for will supply you with all the materials you need to make your jewelry. They will also provide detailed instructions on how to create them. They might even include an example of a completed product so that you'll know exactly how it should turn out.
The key to succeeding at these types of jobs is to not procrastinate. The number one reason that people fail at work from home jobs is that they do not take the job seriously enough. They know they have produce a certain number of necklaces per week, but each day they put the work off. By the time the end of the week rolls around, they have much more work than they can do and become overwhelmed.
To avoid this fate, you'll want to set your own deadlines. If you have one week to complete a project, break it down into manageable tasks. For example, if you need to do 100 necklaces a week, set your goal at 20 per day for 5 days. You need to trick yourself into thinking that these need to be sent in every day. This will prevent you from putting off until tomorrow what you should be doing today.
