I worked in an office for over 10 years. The company was sold and many of us were laid off by the new owners. I decided that 10 years cooped up in a cubicle was more than enough. I began looking for work at home opportunities. I wanted to be able to set my own hours instead of having to punch a clock everyday. I also wanted to be available to help my mom out with her errands, take her to her medical appointments and just spend more time with her.
