I am a photographer. It took years to build my skill set up and then more years to build the business up. Making decent money also takes a long time.

I do work really long hours but I feel blessed that I can call the shots in terms of being there for the children. My eldest is getting his leadership badge on Friday morning, and I will be there. That would have been difficult in my old career. The negative is that I am often awake in the early hours of the morning answering emails and retouching photos.

I sell plus size clothing on Ebay and also sell cosmetics via my website and facebook.  Not quite enough yet to stay home fulltime but it will be :smile:

I'm looking at starting to do some admin / data entry work from home.

Can anyone recommend any reliable websites to go and register?

I googled "work from home data entry australia" but I really don't know if the sites that come up are legitimate.

has anyone done this in the past?

I work for an IT consulting company.  At the moment I'm working on a project with a client that I  can do from home. The other team members are interstate so we spend the days on con calls and Webex. I go into the office 1-2 days per week.

Unfortunately not all my projects are like this and most often I have to travel to the clients offices but I'm keen to do it more often as my husband travels 50% of the time and commuting to the office becomes very tricky with cc drop offs and pick ups.

I ran my own Family Day Care business from home for 9 years and really loved it. Great way to be paid while taking your own children out to the park or library and ensures you provide your own children with a lot of fun and educational experiences that you need to provide the paying clients as part of the service.

Did you find a company to go through? I'd be interested in this type of work too.

Hi Guys, I do network marketing from home.
I love it, it works around my little girl and since I've been able to leave my full time job it's proved worth it massively X

I do a barrister's word processing from home.

I am very tired this morning and read that as barister's word processing at first.

I do one day a week from home. I work on the document production side of things in a law firm so its pretty easy for me to work remotely.

There are a few specifications around it though, obviously, due to there being a lot of sensitive information involved. I also can't have my kids at home for obvious reasons given I am not able to work and be a carer at the same time.
