I started exploring the idea of working from home 4 years ago. The reason was not only that I wanted to skip commuting but also that I wanted to expand the pool of companies I could apply to.

Let me start by making this clear from the start: IT WILL NOT BE EASY!

There are a lot of scammers out there and you are bound to fall for one or another at some point. You will work for free or for pittance and you will be exploited, that is the way life is.

But eventually, you will see the light at the end of the tunnel and you will get to work from home, for a company at the other end of the world/continent/country and it will be so worth it!

I will share with you some of the resources I’ve been using all this time. It might not be the perfect set of websites but those worked for me.
