Freelance jobs that work for mommy!

If you are like me, I had heard the term "freelance" and "freelancer" many times throughout my life. I had no idea really what it meant but was always given the impression that is was someone who roamed around and did work where they could. That sounds pretty pathetic right? I thought so too. I now know my initial thought regarding freelance work was wrong.

Freelance according to Encarta® World English Dictionary is somebody working for different companies: a self-employed person working, or available to work, for a number of employers, and usually hired for a limited period.

So what does this mean to you?

Here are some jobs that freelance people do, and many you may find surprisingly interesting.
