No, but I know of a few work from home things in our area. Paypal is hiring Work at Home customer service through the call center I used to work at, and all you have to do is attend their 6 week training course. To do medical billing from home, which is what I want to do but haven't yet, you have to be professionally certified, (Costing about $700), and have in-office/hospital experience. I know some who just open their own coding business, and work from home that way, but you take on all the expenses of licensure, bonding, insurance, training, etc etc. Some moms blog from home for sites like Hubpages.com, but I've read that that doesn't start paying until you've written over 100 800+ word hubs for people to read.

Yeah I heard you can do really well if you open your coding business. Do you have any information on that?

I work from home when I can't make it into work itself, but that's wholly because 98% of my job involves emails, calling clients, etc. I have a very understanding boss.

I work from home as network engineer. Only when I'm sick or like this week when the company I work for is doing a company shut down. (:
We are only doing half days and I'm just filling in or helping out my minion.

It's been nice but my paycheck won't agree, lol.

I don't make NEAR enough as I did working in the field but I work from home as a therapist, author and voice actress (hence the three part time jobs to make up for a half of my full time pay).  Voice acting is like 30 bucks a week, my books are 6 month stipends and clients come on referral basis and I make around 100 a month with those sessions.

I got a certificate in claims and billing from US Career Institute a few years ago, they have a lot of resources and information about opening a business in addition to learning how to do the coding. As far as opening a business goes, it depends on what state you live in as to what laws are in place for opening a new business. You'd need to know the laws for opening a business, naming it, I know you have to notarize documents for the courts to become a real business. You could also check with professional organizations for resources, coding books, guides, and help. AAPC has an open thread about it. http://www.aapc.com/memberarea/forums/showthread.php?t=51619 I know you'd have toi be prepared financially, be ready to jump into the marketing, etc.

I wish I work from home. I'm a mental health worker (paraprofessional). Juggling three kids, a high deman mental job, a husband and school is killing me. I was recently diagnosed with depression due to this
