In a tough economy, companies are looking to save money and in some cases, allowing their employees to work out of their homes.
Janine Musser and her husband David have a passion for the arts.
"My husband and I started the Appalachian Heritage Alliance 22 years ago and we've been bringing art educational programs to the region." says Janine Musser.
Traditionally the program was funded through grant money but in a struggling economy those funds were running dry.
Janine says she knew she had to find something to pay the bills and still allow her to work with the arts.
Not taking no for an answer she remembered hearing about Kentucky Teleworks. A company allowing you to work out of home and still compete in the 21st century.
"We want to end the days of folks having degrees in certain fields and only being regulated to come home and to simply find a job." said Joshua Ball with Kentucky Teleworks.
Now Janine works for a French based company in the comforts of her own eastern Kentucky home...something she never imagined would be possible.
"Being able to talk to them as if we were in the same office and yet know that they're in a different county than I am in." Janine says.
The best thing about Telework is that you can adjust it to you're busy lifestyle.
"Telework allows that flexibility to be able to, when you're shift ends you log off and you walk downstairs and life resumes." Ball adds.
And allow people like Janine to do what she loves.
