Before I start my today's discussion let met introduce with - What Matters To Mommy
Meet Michelle - As the founder of What Matters To Mommy, an informative blog focusing on issues and concerns that affect moms everywhere, her aim is to help you save time and money.
As a bonus goal, She would like to help you find ways to spend more time with your family by transitioning to working from home.
I already joined her at Facebook.
With the rise of computers and the internet in this era, working at home has never been this easy. It became possible to earn money by being just at home. This paved its way to the new generation of housewives and moms from simply a non-earning member of the family to becoming a "Work at Home Mom" and expanding the family's income.
Undoubtedly one of the main reasons a woman will consider working from home. As a work from home mom, you will have the chance to be part of your child's daily routine. Sitting down for lunch with your toddler, welcoming your child home from school and hearing about their day, helping with homework. It gives you even more time to watch and enjoy as your child learns and grows before your eyes. After all, they only grow up once, right?
Many mothers say they tend to feel a loss of control in their household. As a working mother many feel like they lose a lot of control by not being home during the day and not being with their children as much. Stay at home mothers that do not work on the other hand tend to feel like they have no control over the financial situation of the family. Either can be very stressful. By working from home you are free from both of these.
Just because you are home all day does not mean you will be able to have all the quality time you could want. This one is especially difficult for the stay at home mom starting to work. You and your child are probably used to spending a lot of quality time together. It will be a hard adjustment to be able to dismiss your child while working so you can concentrate. Sure you can share in your child's enthusiasm, but that does not mean you will always be able to give them the attention that either you or they want you to.
At home, there is usually no clock to punch and no one telling you that you can go home for the day. By that same token, no one is stopping you from relaxing when you need to work and it might seem like a good idea to stop and do laundry, take personal calls or watch television but the best way to create your own wealth is to work hard. It's a bit of a juggling act to manage family and your business but it's important.
Whether it's help with child minding, housekeeping or hiring a virtual assistant to help you run your business, it's important to realize that once you begin to grow, you might not be able to do it all. Ask family to pitch in and help with the housework and your spouse to help with the kids and don't forget to take some time for you too. After all, freedom is what self-employment is all about!
If you are a good writer, you should try out content writing. You should realize that the online media has a steady demand for content. Write a few articles each day and get paid at good rates. Many online sites are now facilitating and processing such working at home jobs for freelance writers who prefer to work at home.
