Let’s talk work-from-home jobs.

You want one, your mom wants one, your cousin’s best friend’s neighbor’s dog wants one — everybody seems to want to work from home these days.

And why shouldn’t they? Working from home is what dreams are made of.

(I say this with some authority as I work from the comfort of my home office/blanket-tent in my PJs while my cat sleeps belly-up across my workspace, snoring a little while the smell of my hot, non-take out lunch roasting in the oven makes his nose twitch in a way that forces me to Snapchat everyone on my contacts list — something I definitely couldn’t be doing from an office right now.)

Jealous of my current situation? Wishing you could snag an awesome work-from-home job that would allow you the freedom and flexibility to annoy your friends with cat pics all day long?

Then you’re going to want to read on — and you’ll probably also want to like our Jobs page on Facebook — we share awesome work-from-home job opportunities there all the time!
