Five Best Work-From-Home Jobs

Guides are paid monthly and are compensated based on page views and section growth. The average rate is $1,500 a month for about 15 hours a week, which means the average annual compensation for a guide is $18,000. (The company says some guides rake in more than $100,000.) Great money for sharing information on something you love.

Beyond these resources, I have many others, along with some of the challenges and triumphs, on a specially created section of my Web site on working from home.

There are hundreds of legitimate companies that use home-based workers -- some as employees, others as independent contractors -- so explore what's available before settling on something specific. You must be able to articulate what specific skills you offer and how you want to put them to work. Just saying "I want to work from home" won't land you the opportunities you likely seek.
