Alright so working at home is obviously the latest craze, you'd have to be a lump in the woods in the rainforest not to at least know one person who makes their living online. The truth of the matter is, lots of internet marketers now enjoy a full time income sitting from the comfort of their own homes - many whom never believed it could happen again. Programs like CJ and Amazon and Google Money Master are all legitimate different routes people take to make money online. Don't forget about ebay.
The truth about working at home is that you only get out of it, what you put into it. That may sound like a cliche but the truth is they are cliches in the marketing world for a reason, they repeat themselves over and over and you can really follow that bit of advice. Sure some people might get fat cheques from Google every month, you could too, right? Or you could sell software, an ebook, whatever - the possibilities are endless.
