Almost everyone is on the Internet these days, and parents often volunteer to create and run websites for their kids' various activities. If you're good enough at it, why not make it a career?
If you've got the skills, this job allows you meet with clients and create a website that meets their needs. You craft the look and feel of the site and ensure the graphic design dovetails with what the site is trying to accomplish, as well as provide the level of functionality specified by the client.
Although skills such as Dreamweaver and HTML are certainly required, you can teach yourself many of the necessary programs. Self-employed web designers often set their own hours and work from home as well.
