So I've decided to go back to working from home, but that's been easier said than done. After almost a year of looking a finally found something that is allowing me to supplement my income but nothing that has allowed me to quit my day job. At least I'm currently making half my income at my latest endeavor but it would be nice to actually replace my current income. I've done customer service, marketing, data entry, ic for other companies yet have nothing that has stayed consistent. Some I make great money at for a few months but then they either run out of work, the market gets saturated or I'm doing something wrong. I'm interested to know if I am alone in this or if this is a common problem. Has anyone else gone through this and if so what is your solution? I'm so tired of getting paid peanuts to work outside the home. I'm tired of never being able to get ahead.

I have been out of work for almost a year and been doing several online jobs sure the pay is not that great and some pay on certain days and others it takes long to get started but once you do the $ adds up, I Thank God I can make what I can from home it is difficult for me to do all the sites I am on in a day but I have done it once or twice and it took all day and half the night but they have all paid me so I was happy. There are several sites that will pay you through pay pal and some that send you checks but you have to have the time to do it and mostly patience. Good Luck out there I do have a few banners on my profile if you would like to check them out but mostly I have some more but I could not figure out how to add more I tried and tried and the banners wouldn't go up?

I really want to work full time at home also but online income is not as big if you have offline work.Right now, online job is my part time job to earn extra income and at the same time i have offline job. If I have enough savings maybe that's the time that I will put up business of my own.

I want to work full time from home too. It really is a shame what the pay is. I just do not being around many people in a work environment. I wish there was a website or something we could find out. There are ways, but we are not getting the answer though.

Working at home is awesome a horrible. It is awesome because we don’t need to wake up early. Have a flexible schedule. You can save any for transportation and eating outside. The horrible is degradation of social skills. You are not alone of that, it’s really happen. The best thing to do is apply another job.

I'm also working from home, although you can say I have had an easier time as far as getting work is concerned. I'm a freelance writer and copyeditor, with most of my work coming from my former employers. I used to be an in-house editor for a marketing research firm. When I left the company after a couple of years with them, my former boss decided to retain my services as a freelance editor. I also used to be an in-house writer for a newspaper. Again, when I left the company, my editor continued assigning me stories to cover and even gave me a column to write on a regular basis. My third regular writing job, I found by browsing online job sites. This one pays the least money, but is one of my favorite jobs. I had to fall prey to a couple of scammers before I found it. Anyway, I have learned a couple of lessons related to working from home and finding work-at-home jobs: establishing good relations with current employers can bring some great things later in one's career and taking extra caution when looking for jobs online can help you avoid wasting your time and getting duped. Have a good day!
