Case studies

Gail Miller has always been a homeworker and is now specialising in Holistic Healing. She lives with her husband, son aged 13 and daughter aged 5. Gail is a major author on the subject of ADHD which her now teenage son has always had.

Case Study written in 1999/2000

In 2001/02 Gail pursued her artistic talents and now concentrates on her successful art work, which she sells through Ebay. This Case Study is therefore out of date, but it shows how ideas and homeworking activities need to be fluid and can change, and the need for a wide portfolio of work.

Nancy is a paralegal (doing document preparation for probate cases and estate planning) and has done this work for 19 years, the last four on a part-time, at home basis.


Peter shares a house with friends, has one cat and has been homeworking on and off all his working life.

Case study written in 1999.

John is in his 50's and married with one child. He has run his own mail order business selling condoms and adult fashion for 9 years. (2001)

Update: 2005 - John's online condoms business did well and he was bought out. He has now diversified into a completely different product and still works from home.
