With today’s cutting edge technology the dream of being able to work from home has become a reality for 1 in 5 Americans, and that number continues to rise.  There has been a 105% increase in telecommuters since 2005.

I must warn readers to beware of scams, there are a plethora of them out there. If it seems too good to be true…it is! Do not fall prey to the get rich quick schemes. A legitimate job offer will not require paying any money upfront.
