Millions of people in the US are now making their living working from home. Some do it as a full-time job, whereas others do it just to make a little extra income on the side. With so many scams out there it can be hard to find the best work at home for you. The best place to start is by doing research, which is probably how you ended up here.
There are many people who get constant praise from family and friends on things they made with their own two hands. The problem is not knowing how valuable those little crafts can be. If you know how to make jewelry, clothing, pottery, bath products, illustrations, woodwork, or many other handmade items, then you can turn that gift into cash. Etsy is a site where people go to buy and sell handmade items. The company sells thousands of items every month, so why not make money on something you probably already have lying around the house? Etsy also has a section where people request custom made items that you can place a bid to make the requested item. For the crafty individual, Etsy is a perfect choice for working from home.
Virtual customer service is a growing field. Many big companies are finding it easier to pay people to answer their in-bound calls from the comfort of their own home. Customer service agents make around $8 to $15 an hour. There are also incentives and commission as well. Virtual customer service is a growing field that is very competitive. So when doing a virtual interview treat it like you are on an in-person interview. Be professional and give yourself about one hour of uninterrupted time. That means no crying baby, barking dog, or arguing children. Practice script reading prior to the interview. You will be required to read the script you are given with enthusiasm. They can and will use your voice test as a reason to hire or reject you, so practice it until you have it right.
Freelance work is another way to make money from home. There are many jobs in the freelance industry ranging from software development to data entry positions to writing press releases. There are a few sites that handle everything from hiring to payment. Elance and oDesk are two of the top companies for freelancers to find work.

After posting your profile you can begin searching through the job postings and place a bid on the jobs that interest you. Many of the providers on these sites start with their rates very low to allow them to get the jobs and prove their capabilities. Once establishing good work through these sites, you can increase your rates. You are the only one who can determine what your rates will be.
