I had worked since I was 16, earlier if you count babysitting.  I had known things would change when I had kids, but I had no idea how much I would struggle with the guilt.  I felt guilty when I was at work because I was missing the joys of spending time with my child.  I was guilty when I was at home because I was leaving earlier and missing more evening activities I should have been participating in.  It was hard to live always torn between work and home until I found a solution, a business opportunity for women.

When I was at work I was agonizing over the things I was missing.  Would my daughter say a new word or learn a new song today?  I went so far as to tell my daycare provider not to tell me any new things she had done, until I told her I saw them first.  I wanted to at least believe I saw the first step, word, and new success.  It was so hard for me.  My husband was in charge of drop offs, because if I had to do drop off every day, I would have quit after the first week; it broke my heart.  If I left the house first I could at least pretend she was home with daddy.  Working was killing me.  I would sit at my desk and wonder what my daughter was doing.

When I was at home the guilt was equally troubling.  I often was thinking about projects I was working on.  I choose to miss critical business activities, because the thought of leaving before my daughter was awake and getting home after she was in bed was too much for me.  It didn’t do much good to skip the activities because my mind was still there even when I was at home.  I was trying to fit more and more into my schedule.

Almost a year ago I was laid off.  I always say it was the best thing that ever happened to me.  I was forced to look at my choices.  I also was given a little wiggle room because I was eligible for unemployment.  This gave me the time to start my own business.  I now work from home with a great group of women.  We all work a schedule that is convenient to our life.  I work when my daughter naps or in the evening.  Now I miss nothing.  We can go to the park or on play dates.   I enjoy work and being mom guilt free!

Supplemental Income

My oldest daughter has severe allergies and I was having to leave work to go get her at school and rush her to the doctors or even the emergency room.  In September 2005 I had to make a decision.  I could choose to stay at my job where I spend a lot of time away from my young family (80 hours a week to be exact) and worry constantly about my daughter’s health, or I could take a $30,000 pay cut.  I took the pay cut.  I just could not stand for someone else to raise my family. After one month of trying to just cut back, I knew I had to find something else.  I needed residual income for moms so that I could be there for my daughter and work when I could. Residual income is the best way to build a supplemental income, as it pays you time and time again, even if you did not put any effort into it that month.  This is key to a busy woman’s schedule and life.

Freedom From Home

Home Based Businesses for MomsI am a mom of three beautiful children. My youngest being 6 months old and oldest being 13, I found myself needing to find work. In the economy as it is I wasn’t having any luck. I found a home based businesses for moms. Now I say no to daycare!

 I have found that being able to fit work into my life style and not have to fit life into work has been a true blessing. I make my own schedule, if there are days that are filled with school activities or doctor’s appointments; there is no calling into work!  I can pick up the kids, head home, feed my family, and then go to work when I am ready. The best part is I am making residual income.

 It is so nice to know that I have a group of women supporting me in my new business experience.  All my training and support is right here at my fingertips.  Now my family is on our way to Financial Freedom.

Breaking the Bonds that Bind

financialfreedomforwomenbonds-womensdreamteamThere is no reason why women have to be subject to the men in their lives for money. I could never imagine living on an “allowance.” But there are millions of women out there who must ask their husbands for money. This puts the women in a position of submission. It’s sad, really.

Financial freedom for women is possible. There are many things a woman can do from home to make extra money for herself and her family. Why not take control over you life ladies? Don’t be financially controlled by your husbands, find a job you can do from home.

Planning Ahead

My sister is about to have a baby. My family is so excited because this will be the first grandchild. My sister and her husband always wanted kids and now their wish is coming true. But that doesn’t mean everything will be easy. The United States is in a terrible recession these days and parents are struggling to plan ahead for their children’s educations.

My sister is leaving her job at an investment firm before the baby is born – that leaves her husband to take over the financial responsibilities. It will be tough, but they will manage. Though she is going to stay at home with the baby, my sister is still looking into business opportunities for moms.  A little bit of extra money can make a difference.
