  • "Jobs" are nearly impossible to find. Those that have an employer and earn a paycheck from home worked in the office and proved themselves for years before given the opportunity. Most people who work from home do so by either going with a direct selling company or starting their own business, even if just something as simple as selling on ebay!

    I, personally, manage our Carpet Cleaning business from home. I'm also a beachbody coach...selling workout systems such as P90X, Insanity, TurboFire and more and just motivating, inspiring and helping others get fit and lose weight. I Love it. You can find more info about it at:

  • I disagree...a lot of jobs are moving to remote locations. I work as an independent contractor for several of them. You can try the normal job boards and type in "remote" or "telecommute" when doing the search. You will have to dig through tons of scams, trust me...but jobs are available. If you are an outgoing type, tons of companies hire sales reps who work from home. Insurance, phone service, appointment setters, etc...

    You can also take whatever it is you're good at or like doing, and find a way to sell it or provide it to others. I'm a writer and work for businesses doing that. My friend had been working in fashion and has now replaced her former income just selling her dresses on etsy. If you want to chat more, PM me...I have to finish working now! It can be done though! Good luck! And no, if you PM me, I am not recruiting and will not try and sell you on my business.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization (along with small business marketing and medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
