Introduction: I have been working from home for over 4 years and could not imagine it any other way. I have done the corporate deal and though there are some great benefits nothing beats the freedom gained from working at home. It wasn't always this way, I started off making pennies but once I received my first dollar I knew that working from home was real and if others could do it so could I. This blog is to share with you my experience, job leads, tips and advice. Stay Tuned!
