Stacy Perez started a website in order to help find telecommute jobs. She was pregnant and wanted to stay at home with her child when he was born. She immediately started getting hits and in a relatively short period of time has become one of the internets best known mommy entrepreneurs.
I won't tell you her story, because she is perfectly capable of doing so. What I will do is give you a link to her site. You probably already know it, dotcommommies.
Take a little bit of time, if you are serious about working from home, and stop by to see Stacy. She has an incredible site and always is completely honest with you.
