Do you think that the only way you will ever be able to stay home and still earn an income is by starting your own business? While that may be a great way to go about it, but it is not your only option. Now more than ever it is very possible for you to stay home everyday and work from your home office while earning a very similar income to those that are driving miles and miles every morning to get to their job.
And no, I am not talking about simply asking your current office manager if you can work from home, although that does work well for some people (unless you work for Yahoo).
What I am talking about are great office jobs with well known reputable companies that do understand the benefits of having their staff work from home. They know that it benefits both them and their staff for a huge variety of reasons, and they are happy to operate that way.
So whether you want to be a work from home dad, or a work from home mom like Becky, or you just enjoy the work from home life style no matter what your situation is, here are some great ideas for you.
