If you have been searching for freelancing work at Freelancer, Odesk, Elancer and Guru you will notice that there are tons and tons of freelancing jobs available. Granted, even a whole day wouldn’t allow you to search through all of them. Not to mention that it is a waste of time doing that. Of course the better way is to use filters to look for the right jobs. There are a few posts written here on freelancing notably:

Now if you are someone who is sceptical about freelancing work let me quote what a mum working at home says about this.
“For those who’d rather keep arguing about the challenges of being a WAHM (Work At Home Mum), let me tell you: No pain, no gain! I was a call center agent before and I used to be a sounding board to irate callers. If you aren’t willing to sweat your way to have a good income, there’s no way you are going to get any. I am a work-at-home mom now, and I earn way better than what I earn when I was still working for others.“
