Working From Home

Hey neighbors!!

Many of you know that I am a stay at home mom, who works from home.  I have always been amazed at many of the women I know who also work from home whether it is starting up a new business, working as a representative for a company or finding some type of employment that allows you to stay at home.

Sometimes with young children, it can be difficult to find the time to try and run a business from the home while properly taking care of your family, but I believe it can be done.  You just have to carefully schedule your time, and be flexible enough that you can change that schedule as needed.  Obviously, if your child needs attention you are not going to work on a project that needs your full attention.



The internet has made it easier for that mom who wants to stay at home to still be able to make money through some form of business.  Let's look at a few of the ways you can work from home.

First you can join as a representative for the companies that have party plans.  It used to mean you had to schedule a couple nights a week to host a party in someone's home.  Now we have the ability to host an online party.  This allows the party to actually reach more people because those who live in a different city or state can still participate and order products.  There are many different types of party plans to join, from books, toys, candles, essential oils, food, and clothing.

Another option is transcribing.  My daughter transcribes and makes a regular income through online transcribing.  She took a test and passed and she quickly found she had the ability to improve her speed and thus earn a little more through some special jobs they offer.

Perhaps you have the ability to create your own product for sale.  If you know how to knit or crochet, you can try selling to friends and locals, as well as you could open an Etsy shop where you can then ship to people.  This would also work for someone who sews, embroiders, or creates t-shirts.  I have purchased from someone who creates food and drinks for dolls.  A friend of the family purchased the machines needed for making vinyl wall signs.



My other daughter does photography.  This does require leaving the home for the actual photo shoots, but then she does all her editing at home and her customers can then view the finished photo online and download them to be printed.



Blogging can also be a fun way to work from home.  You need to find a niche and build from there.  Another of my daughters has a blog where she interviews actors and actresses, singers and songwriters, and authors.  I have been amazed by the number of people she has been able to interview.  Once you have a following, you can find many different ways to monetize your blog.

I know there are many other ways for a woman to have a business of her own. Please share any ideas you have in the comments below.  Of course, each one of these will take work and commitment.  You are going to have to set goals for yourself and continue to change them as your business grows. You can see how Nancy at Behrman started her business and became a leader in health and lifestyle brand publicity.

Thanks for stopping by!! See you again soon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
