Duringrepparttar high craziness ofrepparttar 117759 dot com boom, I had some fun imagining a changed world in which people worked from home inrepparttar 117760 midst of their families. I observed that this was a very natural way for human being to live, that for thousands of years people worked at home with their families, and that perhaps technology would finally allow us to return to a more familiar lifestyle. The act of going away to work each day, after all, was a mere 100-year interruption from our natural state. Now it was time to get back torepparttar 117761 farm.

Forrepparttar 117762 part five years, I have made my living from home while raising young children. Most ofrepparttar 117763 women I know, and at least half ofrepparttar 117764 men, view my situation as enviable. For me it was partly choice, partly opportunity. For writers, working at home is not that unusual. I didn't have to give up a bustling career to work at home. The Internet further allowed me to participate in business journalism internationally. I remember getting out of repparttar 117765 shower one morning and having my five-year-old daughter tell me that Erika called. "Erika who?" I asked.

"Erika from Sweden," she beamed. Sure enough, a source had returned my call and had a charming conversation about Daddy inrepparttar 117766 shower.

Overrepparttar 117767 years, my picture of people returning home to work is slowly coming true. And from my personal poll of friends, family and acquaintances, it's not happening nearly fast enough. There are now forces of technology, opportunity and personal interest pushingrepparttar 117768 trend. Don't be surprised if a good portion ofrepparttar 117769 laid-off workforce decides to stay at home and work once repparttar 117770 economy gets back into growth mode.

Dream The Impossible Dream - Turn Your Ideas Into Reality.

Written by Noel Peebles

Continued from page 1

So how do you gain profitable ideas?

1. Find something (or a system) that already exists - one that is proven to work.

2. Invent or create something. Most inventions or creations are simply a variation on something that has already been invented or created.

3. Improve on something that already exists. We are all looking for things that are faster, smarter, smaller - we are all looking for innovation and solutions to problems.

When you dare to dream, it is amazing what miracles can be achieved. The trouble is, most people never start dreaming their impossible dream.
