    Is working from home and actually making an income while doing it possible, if so how do you do it?

    For the people actually able to say that they are working from home for real, how did you finally accomplish this transition from an outside job to being able to work from home on a regular basis and ditch the commute?

    Can't add much to this, but I would like to know this too, beyond all the hype.

    There are two ways that I know how. Both have to do with the medical world. Let me explain the medical process. When someone visits the doctor, he/she takes notes. Those notes are sent to a medical transcriptionist who listens or reads the notes and writes paragraphs that the average person can understand. Those paragraphs are then sent to coders. They read the paragraphs and transfer them into numbers. These numbers are then sent to insurance companies.

    Both medical transcriptionists and coders work from home, normally. My mother is a coder and I am a medical transcriptionist. We both work from home and create a good income. There are many job openings in these areas. The medical area is always growing and these positions are as well. Once my mother received her certification, four different companies came to her asking if she could work for them.

    Lol yes, it is very possible -- I'm supporting a family of four with my writing, mostly a mixture of freelance jobs, a couple of my own sites, and open-submission sites right now, but working on moving into knowledge products. The key here is that you have to be willing to write what other people are demanding, and be willing to constantly learn and adapt to your changing business environment. I did a three-part hub series describing the basics of three different ways to do this, I'm linking the first here:

    That said, most sites promising to teach you how to work from home, or offering lucrative work from home opportunities, are scams. You have to be willing to critically assess your skills and your market, and build your own job or business around what jibes with both.
