A little bit about me. My name's James, you can call me Jimbo. I'm the one on the right in this picture and the other guy on the left is my good buddy, Julian. These are some of our students, they're learning English with us.
Welcome to the site I created to help people to finally fire their bosses and become self-employed working from home online.
I recommend you don't quit your job until you have established yourself with a website home based business of your own. It would be a foolish move indeed because building a business online is not something that happens overnight, especially if you're new to building websites or any other types of work online such as completing surveys, data entry, and affiliate marketing.
I've had more than my fair share of jobs since 1988 when I first entered the job scene. I have been a waiter, a chef, a dishwasher and I've worked in an office environment. I've had stints at places like Burger King, McDonald's and Pizza hut.I had stints as a taxi driver, a pizza delivery driver and most recently for the last 14 years, I've been an English teacher in Thailand, where I still reside. Out of all those jobs and many more, too. My favorites were taxi driving, pizza delivery driving, I like pizza and driving 🙂 and teaching English.
I like teaching as it gives me that “job satisfaction” that we all yearn for. The salaries for teaching here in Thailand have not budged up in the 14 years I've spent here but the cost of living has gone up, although compared to my home country it's still pretty “cheap” to live and work here full time.
Irene is my wife of 6 years. She's from the Philippines and is a Mathematics teacher at the same school I used to teach at. That's where we met. Irene's joined in the fun at Best Stay Home Jobs and is now a frequent blogger here. There she is in the piccy to the right.
Back in 2011 My wife and I went through the ordeal of having a premature baby and that was a nightmare I wouldn't wish on anyone. He's fine by the way, but the hospital bills were sky high and left us with a lot of debt on our hands. Finding a more lucrative job (working from home preferably) became much more urgent and life had to be taken more seriously.
In early 2015 I built my first ever website but just for fun.
I got the idea then, that I'd really like to work online and make lots of money so I could give up the traditional job. While I searched high and low on the internet for jobs online I got stung a lot, mostly wasting my time with so many things. I kept searching and I'm glad to say I finally found something legitimate that can pay a heck of a lot of money if you just learn the ropes and do not quit.

Jewel is our latest member to join Best Stay Home Jobs website. Jewel had another site but had to wind it down as she now has many projects on her hands. In May 2017, Jewel teamed up with Irene and me so that we could all work together. It's been lots of fun so far. Jewel now blogs part-time here as well as running a couple of other business ventures. I really dig the avatar, Jewel. Can you make me one? 😉
I discovered Wealthy Affiliate University which I must tell you about because it really is awesome. Wealthy Affiliate taught me how to build my own business online using websites as my foundation. I now have 3 websites in three different “niches” and Best Stay Home Jobs is one of those sites. At Wealthy Affiliate (WA) I learned a lot about affiliate marketing and other ways to monetize websites.The cool thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that for just a shade under $50 a month as a premium member they allow you to host 25 websites all under one roof.
They have a keyword research tool, quality training to build an online business and a community of like-minded individuals that numbers about 400,000 people. Even better than that is the fact that they show you how to build a business using only your computer and internet connection. That is all it takes. Being an internet based business it means that you don't actually have to stay fixed to one workplace. You could, in fact, work anywhere in the world with a laptop and internet connection.
