  1. Great post Bill. I have been making my whole living as a work-at-home-dad for the past couple years. I haven’t singed on with any particular company but I have pretty well freelancing. You have hit on all the major channels and this will be very helpful for everyone that wants to live this lifestyle and spend more time with their kids.

    1. Hello Hammer11B,
      Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, it was my wife’s birthday over the weekend. When you say you are freelancing, what if any is your niche, per say? I am at WA a little over 8 months now and have not seen any substantial money yet. Maybe I am doing something wrong? Well like you say, working at home does give you more time with the kids, which is a great thing. All the best always.
