A few days ago, I have had a talk with some SAHMs who were oblivious to the countless things a stay-at-home mom can do online. Apparently, whenever they do go online, they just do Facebook (or play games there), watch YouTube videos, use Skype, or play online. They weren’t aware of the many other kinds of opportunities that await them. Here’s what I told them…
There are many people who have realised the benefits of working from home. Aside from the obvious advantages of being your own boss and not having a commute every day, there are also other benefits of being able to work from the comforts of your own home.
The ‘work from home’ industry has grown substantially over the past few years, and it is steadily rising as more people opt for a more relaxed and flexible work schedule. Over half of self-employed people rely on working from home in some shape or form, and 38% of people use their home as a work base.
If you are considering doing the same, making your decision may be a bit easier when you know a few of the advantages that it entails:
WHY WORK FROM HOME
You Have Control
When you work from home, you have much more control over your life. You have no worries of getting up and off to the office every day, and you can schedule work around your family time. If you begin to feel a bit stressed, you can simply step away from work and take a break. Continue reading
I am a 24/7 mommy and I earn online by blogging and ghost-blogging. I have a lot of things to do everyday aside from minding my three toddlers and doing some household work. However, I still manage to handle every thing without going crazy (most of the time). How do I do it? The secret is this: I postpone UNNECESSARY activities until the REAL WORK is finished.
This can sometimes be very difficult, especially when that unnecessary activity is something that you love doing or something that seems to be very engaging and enjoyable. This includes Facebooking, Twittering, doing a movie marathon, going to the mall, or watching TV. I have to admit that sometimes, I cannot help but take a peek at my Facebook account and the wall pages of the groups I belong to – primarily because they are just literally a “click” away.
I blog because Silent Ranting is my passion. If you meet me in person, I will rarely talk to you – not unless we’re already really close. I guess my blogs talk for me in a way.
I blog because I believe in the awesome powers of Google and Yahoo and I am trying to use some of it to (a) claim my (tiny) space in the World Wide Web, (b) spread ideas that I think are relevant, (c) learn and share all that I can about anything I’d need – from cooking to coding!, and (d) explore, exercise, and enhance my writing, marketing, and computing know how.
This time and age, women – especially wives and moms who stay at home shouldn’t be satisfied with what their partners are earning. I’m not saying that you have to nag your partner for more. What I’m suggesting is that we should try our best to get our own jobs and earn for our family.
Believe it or not, earning money and being able to buy the things that you want for yourself or for your kids and your hubby will give you a certain sense of accomplishment. Even if you’re a stay at home mom and you think you’re so preoccupied with tons of mommying tasks and household chores, you can still earn for as long as you have a computer and an internet connection at home.
