Home Work Opportunities


How much do you need to make?

Home work opportunities abound. Whether you can find something that will fit your needs all depends on how much money you need to make to stay afloat. I’ve talked on this site before about scaling down your cost of living requirements to help you escape the rat race. The more frugally you can live, the less money you have to make and the more opportunity you have to leave your current position (or at least go part-time) and come home.

List of Home Work Opportunities

Although we often delve more deeply into a work at home opportunity here at Rat Race Mutiny and discover the ins and outs of a particular business or work model, there are thousands of ideas to choose from when starting your own business and choosing to work from home. Here are a handful of those ideas. You’ll find more detailed info on many right on this site.

  • Pet sitting/house sitting service
