my mom taught piano students at our house when I was growing up. Someday I hope to do the same, since that is pretty easy money without leaving your house!

I work 2 days a week from home, but I’ll probably be working from home full time in just a few weeks here once they approve that….we did a 12 week pilot where I worked from home full time and they are just reviewing the data to make sure it works. I work as an Academic Advisor at a major online University (not U of Phoenix or Strayer)

I teach online/remotely for a university. However, there are several places that will let you teach online for test prep –  SAT, ACT, GMAT, etc.

You can get certified to be a medical transcripter, and do data entry from home 🙂

Look at freelance job websites. I use odesk.com and I know of elance.com. I do administrative support but there are graphic designers, writers, webpage designers, customer service people. But do some research and look around because it is its own economy and norms and it is dominated by people who will work for 50 cent an hour, but don’t be scared off by that. There are quality jobs that can pay well.

But now I am totally going to look into medical transcripter. 🙂

I am an environmental engineer and I currently work from my home. I recently moved across the country and was able to convince my employer that I could continue working for them as a remote employee, and it worked! I honestly don’t think its much different than working in the office, except that I spent alot of time on the phone.

Do you have a current career? Could you find a job with teh flexible to work from home?

Though, to be honest, once my baby comes this summer I will be taking 3 months of maternity, then I am looking into getting a new job out of the house.

I’m a writer/editor. It’s one of the most flexible careers I know of, not only because you can work anywhere. Writing skills can be applied to ANY field.

You could try taking some editing/writing classes, and use that knowledge to work as a copyeditor or technical writer in a field close to what you’re working in now.
