My thoughts are based on working from home for many years.

obviously the internet makes such ventures possible.
There are at least two routes,
one is a new website to set up shop as a consultant.
the second is to become an expert via a blog self published, on the relevant issues.
Both will take a year to get going, but very little start up costs.
There is another route based on the "hourly" type networks.
This is a place to find any service and people quote for the job. The rates are very competitive so a bit daunting as a supplier.
If you use any search engine to find people doing exactly what she proposes to do, the clues emerge.
But my first comment applies.
Working from home is not transferring a typical office based job to home, its all very different, you have to become adequate at all sorts of skills that previously were kind of automatic, especially invoicing and quoting.
A "Jack of all trades" any significant gap in your set can lead to failure.
But its getting more common all the time, I think,
so good luck.

When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.
