    I am new to this whole working at home thing, and being my own boss.

    I want to start out either working for a company, in my house. Or be my own boss.

    I am having trouble accomplishing one or the other. I am not sure if I want to work for another company. Only because I wouldn't know what to choose. If I can get an idea or trend of an in demand being my own boos type of job. Please let me know.

    I would also like the salary to pay a minimum of around 20k ($) or so.

    Any help or tips would be great.

    I am into computers. Not to good at building websites. But I built my own computer and server and stuff.

    There are a few companies that hire customer support agents who work from home, but they pay by the hour

    Derek......One piece of advice I can give you not ever give up on your dream to work from home in whatever capacity you choose. Giving up was not an option for me. I'm so glad I didn't listen to people telling me all the negative things they tried to keep me from going after my dreams. Keep a positive mindset and with determination and committment you can find your work at home job/business, etc, whatever you desire.

    Good luck to you!

    I am still searching for something to do.
    Granted, I am 15, but that shouldn't stop me from doing this.
    My parents support me, all I need is someone to talk to about doing this.
    Kind of like a boost. Once I get started, I'll be fine.

    You are way ahead of your game! If you have the opportunity to go to college, do it!

    I really wish my parents were as supportive as yours. Mine wanted me to go ahead and get my GED and get a job to help support the "family". I didn't listen to them, because graduating was important to me. I got married to a wonderful man a year after I graduated, got pregnant right away, so I figured college wasn't for me. Now, I am trying to learn as much as I can in this area because I know this is where the world is heading! My children will start taking computer courses in Jr high school. I know it is important!

    My cousin just graduated and in about 6 months will get $75 bucks an hour in computers while he goes to college. (his uncle got him a job, but he graduated top 5 of his class and got a scholarship to a college)

    Study hard, got to college. You will find it easy to be your own boss and really make a nice living.

    Hey all.
    I've had some time to think about all of this. And I've decided to start studying on Web Design. I figure I can become a Freelance Web Designer with my method of teaching myself. So, I am going to start this month, of December, and see where I am at early January.

    I can also finish High School in 1 - 3 years, then I can take college courses.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for the late update, but I ended up establishing my own business, I even got a business license. I run a LAN Gaming/PC Repair business, it generates some nice income.
