Whether you're a stay-at-home parent, a retiree or just want to dabble in a little moonlighting, there are several viable ways to make extra income – or even a living – at home. Do you know the best work-at-home jobs? 

Work-at-home jobs, sometimes referred to as telecommuting positions, are easier to get than ever. According to Global Workplace Analytics (GWA), the work-at-home population grew nearly 80 percent from 2005 to 2012. 

In 2012, there were almost 3.3 million Americans who were working at home, and this figure doesn't even include those who are self-employed. That is another 2.8 million self-employed people who work from their homes, GWA reports. 

Even though it may sound too good to be true, it's not. Earning a steady income from a work-at-home job can become a reality. The secret is finding a fulfilling work-at-home job that will bring both financial and emotional rewards.
