Staying home and making money isrepparttar fondest dream of millions of people.

And why not? Most people are unhappy with their day jobs,

slaving away for a boss and not getting much in return, not

even their freedom. Many people live forrepparttar 142883 weekends and

drag themselves throughrepparttar 142884 weekly 9-5 grind.

Did you know thatrepparttar 142885 majority of fatal attacks happen at

9 a.m. Monday morning? Donít believe me? Well itís true.

It seems a lot of people would rather die than get back to

the old grind after a weekend of freedom.

take your job and shove it, yet still make enough money to

live and pay all your bills, it sounds blissfully


Is it really possible to land a real work-at-home job or

run a business from your own home that is more than a hobby

or source of part-time income? Can you get rich working

out of your own home? Can you really trade your cubicle

and necktie for pajamas andrepparttar 142886 comfort of your own den?

In reality, most people are not willing to do what it takes

to make this happen. There are many people who are just

satisfied with making enough money to pay their bills and

work around their family's schedule.
