You cant get a green card just by anyone sponsoring you, it has to be an immediate relative.
The only chance you have of a green card right off the bat is the green card lottery, if you are eligible.

There are basically SEVEN ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US:

(1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen.

(2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience.

(3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.

(4)You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland are not eligible)

(5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)
The business must have a minimum value of around $100k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $250k would be a nearer minimum

(6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. And your background will be investigatedto the hilt.

(7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years…

Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this ..
But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $3k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent

An employer cant sponsor a whole family for green cards! They can sponsor somebody for a visa, but the chances of that are slim to none.
If you really are self sufficient then the best way would be to invest a few hunderd thousand in a business, even then the visas your family get are pretty restrictive.
Look at www.uscis.gov, but I wouldn't hold out much hope!
By the way, you never mentioned you were English.

It's a sponsored wannabe-athon to pay for a one-way ticket to the US. The young gentleman here is being sponsored per post in the thread before someone lists the 7 ways to get to the US. Sadly, it was not a successful fundraising endeavor, so it looks like we won't be seeing him for a while!
