It is sometimes a wonder that anyone can handle the stresses of working a day job and making just enough money to pay the bills, while taking care of household needs and raising a family. That’s why millions are looking to the Internet to replace their day job and increase their time to be with the children. After all, that’s what the American dream is all about.
You can get an idea of the demand for work-at-home jobs by checking out the phrases people type into search engines, such as working from home moms, moms work from home and work from home opportunities. Work-at-home moms have their own abbreviation (WAHM).
One misconception that should be dispelled is that working at home from one’s computer requires owning a PC running the Windows operating system.
Except for the use of highly specialized software, most work-at-home tasks can be done with a Mac just as easily as they can be done from a Windows computer. After all, Macs run Microsoft Office just as well as PCs, and they can exchange Office files with Windows users with little trouble.
