I started working at home for myself 5 years ago. As the economy changed for the worse, so did my sales. I worked with municipalities, and they weren't allowed to buy outside the state or pay freight charges other than local.
As I used the computer anyway, I started surfing to find a job I could do at home.
You see, I take care of my 85 year old mom who has many health issues. There's no way I can work outside of home.
