Could you share which virtual assistant website she works through - or one you would recommend.  I am very cautious as there are just too many scams out there.  Thanks in advance!

Yes, I'm also curious on this one.  Our financial situation is almost identical to theirs and I'm desperately in search of a legitimate work at home option.

Please come to Northwest Ohio and try to get in any company here. Every major company has either closed or downsized.  Layoffs are  unbelievable.  There are so many unemployed and when one job is offered, hundreds show up. Now all companies work through temp agencies.   That is the REALITY.   If there is an ad in the newspaper or on line, you go there prepared.  If anyone talks with you, they say they will accept your resume but they usually hire from within.  They inform you to please don't call or stop back to check on your  resume.  Most places once you enter, no one talks to you but there is a box with a huge sign and arrow staing to place your resume in the box....how rude and inconsiderate companies have become.

Every business that feeds off the major industries are downsizing or closing.  It does not matter how qualified or experienced you are.......there just aren't any jobs.

I sure hope those pot & pans that cost $3200.00 were worth it.  I hope they were not Saladmaster.  If they were they are clad with titanium for fast and better cooking for your health.  Our bodies are full of metal and aluminum along with coated pan which leeches into our food while being cooked.
I have never paid more than $60 for a set of pots and pans or $30 for a skillet. And, would never pay more than $300 for a set. $3200? Forget it! Even a titanium-clad set isn't worth it. And, non-stick coating is less likely to leach into food if you don't cook it at too high a temperature. I prefer cooking my food slowly. And, thoroughly. I just don't "get" searing tuna on the outside and leaving it raw on the inside. I'll fill a dry non-stick skillet with chicken breasts, cover it, and "steam" them on low for 20 to 30 minutes until they are fully cooked.

Here's the link to tech support for anyone who wants to voice their frustrations with the pop-up ads and anything else you have issues with.  I don't particularly like the way the navigation bar is, either. It keeps disappearing if I don't keep my cursor inline.  As we all know, the only way for them to fix the problem, is if we make them aware.

Thank you! I just used the link to complain about these damn ads.

Yep! Those are the ones.  I wish the web"MASTER" would get rid of those. Or atleast relocate them to the bottom of the page.
Today, it's Macy's and Neiman Marcus. Does anyone else's website have these damn things? Or, is it just Dr Phil's? His is the only talk show website I visit on a regular basis. Other than that, I'm shopping on-line or looking for information such as recipes.

I went on Salad Master's website. But, they didn't provide any prices for their products. Which are sold at "parties" like Tupperware. I suppose it's easy to be taken in by the slick marketing gimmicks. And, i suspect if a set of their pots and pans does cost $3200, most customers would have to finance them. I agree with Dr Phil's financial consultant that this couple got rooked. But, most products sold at these "parties" are a rip-off. Other companies sell similar items at stores for much less.

Good deal!  Hopefully they'll re-arrannge or change some things.  I complained about the ads and the menu options at the top of the page.  I'm sick of it disappearing if I don't keep my cursor directly on it.

I was quite desperate in find a job last October, so I searched for work-from-home positions.  I found what I thought was a typist position.  I thought "AWESOME," so I sent in my resume.  I got a reply from a lady at Ameriplan (NOT the place I thought I sent my resume).  I asked her if the position was for a home typist position and she said, "no" and described something totally opposite.  At the time I was selling Ignite Energy and Ameriplan is alot the same as far as what you have to do and how you get paid.  BE CAUTIOUS, BE VERY CAUTIOUS, when considering anything over the Internet and especially work-from home jobs.  It has "GIMMICK" written all over it!  Like the old saying goes, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is!"

I went to Opra's website and The View and neither of them have the ads like Dr. Phil.  Hmmmm, i never noticed Neiman Marcus, it's always Macy's on mine.  I did, however, notice when you preview your comments the side ad avertises Robyns latest book, "What's Age Got To Do With It" and surprisingly enough, it isn't a pop-up.  I don't understand why they can't simply give us the option to click the ad if we want to see it.  Why we have to be forced, I'll never know.  I'm gonna keep writing to tech support until they do something.

Not all Job hunters are created equal

The show points about going to anyone within shouting distance and ask about a job.  The disabled with conditions not readily apparent can have a harder time selling them selves.  The reality is the globalization helped every nation but the United States.  It is our standard of living was so high compared to the rest of the world.  It is no wonder we are in the deepest recession since the great depression.  The main cause of the great depression was the capital cost for humans cost were the highest in the world.

The economy may rebound by the end of the year but human capital costs will not be advantageous until 20 years from now.  small companies need to prepare for long-term existence instead just the short term.
(lay off personnel)

Thank you for your time.
