I’ll come back later tonight and give a good link from good morning America or ( one of those morning shows) that has some good companies. Also West telemarketing does at home agents, they’re local to me so I know a few that work for them and it’s easy. I’ll also come back with my link for freelance work that I’ve used in the past. It has a little bit for every kind of work. (my husband is in surgery but I’ll find all the links know he’s asleep at home) 

Right now I write for a few online news agencies, the pay isn’t great but it’s not horrible either. It’s more of a foot in the door type of thing. I’ve been getting more and more work as my clicks go up. I also make a little from few liberal radio shows I pundit for, it’s really only token pay but I just call in from my cell and it doesn’t require too much prep. It’s also just a stepping stone of training and it’s fun.

I work at home as an an account manager for a medical transcription company.  Well, I do trascription as well.  It used to be a very lucrative career, but voice recognition has made it very difficult to get a job in, or at least make good pay.  The pay is also based on how much work you do, so if you don’t type fast, or there is no work to be done, you aren’t going to make a great living doint it.  

I have a friend who works for amazon from home.  I believe he does some form of customer service.  I know some health insurance companies also hire people to do claims over the phone from home.  Flower companies definitely hire around big holidays as well.

I’m a medical writer and work from home. I am actually transitioning into full-time job with a company, so I will be working from home about 60% of the time. In medical writing, usually working from home = freelance, which = no benefits or job security. You can get paid a ton (like >$100/hour), but you have to have a PhD or MD and it’s all freelance. I am keeping that option open for after I have children and want to be at home more and have an entirely flexible schedule. Obamacare has made it better, since my $500/month insurance plan on my husband’s insurance would only be about $250 from the health care exchange. 

What is your degree/experience/field of expertise? I don’t think you should just say “I want to work at home, what can I do?” Why do you want to work at home?
