    Why do you want to work from home? Because I know I can earn the income I have always dreamed of working for myself, I can't do that working for someone else!
    Have you ever worked from home before? I have been working from home for about 18 months

  • Were you/Are you successful? If not, why don't you think you found success with that company? My first dozen or so attempts were not successful. The companies, products or training were not what I needed or weren't right for me. Today I earn enough to support me and my family, yes, that's success in my mind!
    What things have you seen that you like/dislike? I don't like the stigma that follows WAH companies. Or the idea that they aren't real JOBS...

    I've been a SAHM for 5yrs. I love working from home. My hubby even gets involved with my home business. I wanted to stay home to raise my kids rather than put them in daycare. It would break my heart to have someone else raise them for me. I used to work outside the home before I had my kids, and I prefer to stay home with them until they are in school. However, right now, I do homeschool my eldest, so I suppose I'll be home til they ask to be put in public school. My home business helps my hubby support our family.
