.... without being exploited

Do you or someone you known work from home? What do you/they do?

I've sent off my cv to an online bingo gaming company and applied as forum moderator (not heard anything back yet).

I've looked at online surveys - impossible to earn more than pennies for hours & hours work.

Any suggestions?

Everyone I know who works from home and makes good money does a self-employed professional job.

Or they work for Task Rabbit in London or have a call centre job based from home.

I work from home as does dh. We run our own business.

I don't know anyone who works permanently from home who isn't running their own business.

The only people I know who work from home are self employed in a semi professional or professional capacity. Most have been previously employed and realised they were being ripped off and working too hard for a wanky boss so set up doing exactly the same thing for themselves :-)

I work for a typical MLM company, where there's a (small) fee to join and you recruit a team - which is very frowned upon on MN as a pyramid scam/won't earn you any money etc.

I know different and that it does earn you decent money (and is not a scam). So I can suggest something op, if this ^ sort of thing appeals to you. But i'm not coming out and posting it because i'll only get jumped on grin But happy to share if you want to pm me.
