I don't myself. But I know some people who are computer programmers and they've made some decent money picking up contract work on sites like Odesk.

Even some companies offer employment option with decent pay if you have right qualification.

My husband does. Out of a half dozen employee-status jobs that he's had since college, all but one offered some level of telecommuting from as low as working remotely only when he was on-call on the weekends to complete, 100% telecommute, to some in between extremes of "if you ask, we'll say no/just stay home instead" type situations where no one really wanted the responsibility of approving it . Those were positions that he did have to spend some time in-house before being able to work at home. But more recently there has been an increase in tech jobs that clearly indicate "100% telecommute" up front on the listings. Of any field, I think software is one of the most plentiful fields offering remote opportunities. And these were all employee-status, 401k, w/ medical benefits, etc. Companies want the work done and often don't care where/when it's done. The downside is that the hours are long, and they expect a lot out of workers in terms of time commitment. So, there is often no clear line between work time and family time.
