But Audrey McClelland and Colleen Padilla have found the coveted “middle ground,” creating successful careers from home via the Internet.

4. Make opportunity knock and learn how to answer that door.
5. Manage the Benjamins.
6. Don’t forget the children!
7. Live happily ever after by living your values.
