Making Your Work Work For You

Have you ever dreamed of a job where you could spend time with your family and earn money at the same time? Most traditional jobs don't offer that. But, becoming a work at home mom (WAHM) could be your ticket to your dream. But, before embarking on such a quest, here is some helpful information:

WAHM stands for Work At Home Mom. Over the past 20 years, more and more women have come out of the workplace and gone back into the home.

The decision hasn't been an easy one. It became apparent a long time ago that men were the only ones being allowed to have their cake and eat it too. They could pursue a corporate career and still come home in the evenings to the family.

Women with careers had a different path to follow. Besides working longer hours to achieve the same pay and credibility as their male counterparts, they also had to contend with the housework and the kids. After a long day at the office and doing the household chores, the kids sadly got what was left over which was usually a very worn out mother.

That has since changed. WAHMs are proving everyday that women can contribute to the family financial situation and nurture their families. Both online and off, a network of support has been created for any woman who wants to consider an option that will help them meet their needs.

How to get started?

When you talk to your family about the possibility you want to have an idea of the direction you will take. If your income has been a big part of the monthly family finances, then switching to a work at home enterprise will cause your finances to take a hit. Be sure there is enough financial cushion in your bank account to weather the first six months of your new career. It will take time to establish your business.

First, figure out your interests and skills. WAHMs can find business opportunities to work for someone else doing everything from audio transcription to writing articles to accounting. Be aware that there are scams about and that legitimate companies looking for professionals wonít ask for money upfront from you.

Some WAHMs carve out their own niche and begin an online business. If you are skilled with crafting, you can create a website to promote your crafts and sell products. A blog is also another idea. Blog about your area of expertise and develop a following. Combine that with affiliate or search engine marketing to generate revenue.

There are advantages to being a WAHM. Plan carefully and be patient. Support from your family makes all the difference.

Why Working Mothers Should Take A Day Off Work
Working mothers, sometimes it is hard to take care of yourself. I get it, and I have fallen into this pattern myself.

Why Childcare Was A Big Source Of Guilt For Me
Childcare has always been a huge source of guilt for me. So much so that once, much to my embarrassment, I found myself pretending to be a stay-at-home mom. It was one morning when Emily, my middle child, was not feeling well. I left work early to take her to the doctor, but on my way to pick her up, I did something crazy: I changed into jeans and tennis shoes. I was only planning on being at the doctor's office for a few hours. Then, as long as she was doing better, I was going to return her...

A New Hobby Or A New Job
Whether you are making a million dollars a year in your job or barely paying the bills, at some point in time, we all ask that question: Is it time for a new job?

What Is Working Mother Guilt

Kids Or No Kids
For some people this is the world's easiest question -- they've always been able to see themselves as parents, they have their life set up the way they want it, and they're ready to go. Others go back and forth on this one for years, or feel the need to do a little serious wobbling before taking the plunge. Some just never get the call. Wherever you are on the spectrum, even if you know you want to do it, you can make a conscious decision about whether to become a parent. Being a parent is...

How To Contribute As A Working Mother In A Way That Works For You
When I was a kid, I couldn't bear the thought of finishing in second place. I believed that I could do anything and never wanted to settle for anything less than the very best. This is probably why my career evolved into outside sales, competition feels comfortable to me. The desire to be number one always motivated me to work hard at school and put forward my best at work, but it took me a long time to learn how to distinguish between being the best and doing my best. My pursuit of...

Why Exercise Is Important For Working Mothers
Exercise. I understand--there are many days where I am booked solid with so many meetings that I barely have time to use the restroom, let alone go out for a jog or a step class. But by taking the time to schedule exercise into my calendar, I am amazed at how much more I can accomplish in a day. It is true--I swear it. After exercising, my head is clearer, I am in a better state of mind, and though it is hard to believe, I actually do have more energy. Creating time to work out can be...

How To Create Special Moments With Your Child
Leave surprise notes. If an important meeting is keeping you from your daughter's school play or an out-of-town trip means you'll miss your son's soccer game, slip them a surprise note so that your child will know you're thinking of them. I have been known to put an I miss you already note in the girls' morning cereal box, or a smiley face note under Parkers pillow. My daughters' school lunches are also great opportunities for something silly and fun. My kids love finding these notes and I...
