There were times in the past when work-from-home freelancers and business owners had to go through moments of uncertainty when asked what they did for a living.  After all, working from home was not exactly the kind of job that most people viewed as an acceptable career.  It seemed too temporary and unstable, the kind of choice for people who didn’t have any career prospects or were just too lazy to get hired.

These days, however, working from home is no longer an unconventional career choice.  It has also become a practice among many corporations who allow some of their employees to telecommute.  Work from home opportunities are also an excellent means to earn an income for many individuals, including housewives, part-timers, freelancers, students and those who are in-between jobs.
