 I am just curious if anyone works at home as their career or maybe just for some extra money? I am really looking for something...

 

Thanks!:)

 If you don't mind me asking, how did you get involved with that and what do you do?

In general, I don't work from home, but if the kids are sick or the weather is bad (ice or snow), I work from home on those days. I'm a programmer/analyst.

It's kind of a lengthy answer, but I'll try to shorten it up. :)

I was a teacher for many years, but was missing being with my family...I spent more time with other people's kids than with my own. So, I started looking at WAH options. I held several part-time WAH jobs for about 2 years (while still teaching full time). One of those was being a virtual teacher for online schools - but it was still only PT & I needed FT + benefits in order to stay home for good.

So, then my DH suggested I look at the company whose software I used everyday in my virtual teaching. Sure enough they had a job for a "product specialist"...someone who knew their product well AND had teaching experience. Perfect!

I interviewed & was hired. Because it was a corporate job, the starting salary was higher than my teaching salary was after all those years teaching. AND they provide all standard benefits + provide all equipments (laptops, monitors, etc.) + pay my internet & cell bills since I work at home.

I've been there 4 1/2 years now & 2 1/2 years ago I was promoted to a Product Manager. I now work with development to produce new releases of our educational software.

 Wow, that's awesome! Congrats to you:). I am going to keep searching...I just can never tell what's legit, what isn't. But seriously that's great you found something even better than what you had:).

I have the ability to work from home. I am actually working from home today. Most of the time, I work out of the office, though.
