How do I work from home without owning my own business?

I am being laid off from my job in November. I like to work and bring in money to help out with the family expenses, but I hate the commute and wish I had a little more time with my family. Ideally, I would like to work at home for a business, but not a “own your own business” opportunity. I look on line all the time and haven’t come across something that is a real opportunity. Does anyone know of anything? I am a good worker and have excellent computer skills. Any help would be great!

Quoting Suzette:

If you do medical reports or other computer work from home it is called a service and no tax number is required. You just have to claim it on your taxes with a 1099 from. and use your ssn# for that.



Thanks, but I really do think you need training for medical reports.  I looked into it briefly.  I would love to work for someone in that kind of capacity, but not sure that is the right one.

Have you though about asking your family doctor and or dentist if they need anyone to type their medical reports from home. I hear that that pays well and they all know each other, so if they don't they may know of a doctor that does need someone.



Thanks for your response.  I think you need special training for that.  I have been searching diligently for opportunities!
