Want to make your own hours, get paid and work at every post?  Many family members are able to do this through home-based businesses or freelance work. The Family Liaison Office (FLO) Home-Based Business Guide (www.state.gov/m/dghr/flo/c21620.htm) makes it easy for you to get started.  Inside are the relevant State Department regulations, advice for planning your business, consulting guidelines, resources, and successtories.  
Reminder:  Always make sure you get permission from post before launching your business.

If you are not sure what kind of work you could do, check with FLO for a list of the types of home-based businesses managed by family members around the world. Included are film producers, Japanese tutors, IT consultants, CPAs, jewelry designers, speech therapist, caterers, and authors and many, many more. You are sure to find yourself on this list. Please send an email to FLOAskEmployment@state.gov for a copy.
