It's 2014 and a lot of unconventional jobs have already been accepted by most people, including being a blogger or becoming a reality star like Kim Kardashian. Unfortunately, this doesn't include work from home jobs which are still not taken seriously by some people. They even think that these types of telecommuting jobs are not legitimate, are fly-by-night operations or are scams. Or, if they are real, then they just assume that these jobs pay so low that it can't be depended on as one's only source of income. However, that's not usually the case for all work from home jobs. According to FlexJobs and PayScale, some can work from home and earn tons of money. Read on for the Top 10 work from home jobs that pay a lot.

In 1999, the former electrical engineer had a vision: To save retired jetliners from becoming scrap metal by reusing them. Campbell, 64, is one of a small number of people worldwide who have transformed retired aircraft into a living space or other creative project, although a spokesman for the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association was unable to say precisely how many planes are re-used this way.
