Escape the cube. Ditch the commute. It?s not just a dream anymore.

Many people already spend 12 hours a day getting to work, working, getting home from work. Here?s some good news: thanks to advances in technology, acceptance of outsourcing, the trend towards corporate flextime, and other factors, working from home is easier than ever.

Good Morning America?s Workplace Contributor Tory Johnson and consumer advocate Robyn Freedman Spizman tell readers exactly how to turn today?s cultural change to their advantage without giving up an income. Specific business plans will teach them how to:
? Take their current position home
? Find a new company whose policies will allow them to work from home
? Reseach a product they believe in, and sell it from home
? Start their own business, doing something they love, for a minimal initial investment

With real-life stories, a step-by-step plan, resource guides, and lists of scams to avoid, this is the book that will help readers finally make the leap??and show them that they don?t have to give up their family, creativity, or peace of mind to earn a decent salary.
