I know I'm not alone in my dream to be self-employed. Actually, I've realized that a lot of my other dreams hinge on that one factor. Thankfully I was very very fortunate to meet a great group of people several years ago who have spent their lives working from home and making it easier for ordinary (aka, broke) people like me to do it too.
As a business, it's not easy but then running a business never is. What makes it work is that the tools are there, and it's aligned with a company that cares. I've found that makes all the difference.
Some great perks:
-Awesome training and website
-A ton of online tools
-Lots of helpful people
