by Liz Fretz
I have been scouring the Internet and other sources, looking for information and ideas about working at home. The following list of jobs contains things that people are currently doing from home in one form or another. Read through this list with an open mind. Let the ideas wash over you. Some of the items on this list are very creative . . . maybe as you read through these things, something will click for you. Maybe you'll see something you could do or maybe something on the list will trigger your imagination and you'll come up with something unique that only you can do at home. Now take a deep breath, clear your mind, and see what happens . . .
