My favorite part of January is that it’s the month when finally — after months of running around in a holiday frenzy — we get to slow down, settle in and revisit our familiar routines.
That is, until the routine starts to feel a little too routine, and then it’s less of a cozy orderliness and more of a daily slog that makes you wish you could schedule a root canal just to break up the monotony of the same drive to the same cubicle every. Single. Day.
But don’t stop brushing your teeth now.
Rather than taking drastic measures to get out of that tedious commute, why not snag a job that allows you to work from home? (A special thanks to Work at Home Mom Revolution for bringing this opportunity to our attention.)
We have an awesome work-from-home job opportunity to tell you about today, but if it’s not the right fit, don’t worry! Just go ahead and like our Jobs page on Facebook. We post new and interesting work-from-home jobs there whenever we find them.
