are you cut
out to work at home?
consider when working at home...
You just had your first child and it
will break your heart to leave your
baby. Or, you’re expecting and
saying to yourself, “I don’t want to
go back to work after I have my
baby.” Maybe you are a seasoned mom
that has been working and juggling
the family’s needs and you are
tired, stressed, and ready to come
home to the family. No matter why
you want to work at home you are
asking yourself, “Can I stay home
and make money? What will I do?”
Perhaps you have been in the
corporate world so long you are
wondering if it’s for you. Or, you
are a dad tired of the corporate
rate race and want more family
time. You most likely are afraid
and nervous about making the
decision to commit and come home.
Taking that first step feels like a
monumental decision. According to a
2002 report by the U.S. Census
dads numbered 189,000 and
there are 11 million "stay-at-home
moms" for the 41 million
children under 15 living with two
parents. Women and men are coming
home from the corporate work place
and working from the comfort of
their homes and placing their top
priority on the family! I have been
a WAHM for 14 years earning a
corporate level income. If you are
asking yourself if it can be done
I’m here to tell you it absolutely
When making the decision to
home there are lots of
things you will want to evaluate and
questions to be asked. One of the
first questions is what kind of
business you should start. Consider
Do you have any
knowledge in a specific area?
What skill do you
have that you can develop into a
What will you
How much money do
you have to start a business?
What will this
business take to start?
Is there a market
for the product or service?
Can you stick
with this even when the going
How much income
can you really produce?
How big could
this business be and how big do
you want it to be?
How hard are you
willing to work?
What are the tax
Are there any
city, state, or national
Do you need
What is the start up time?
I suggest you now sit down and
do a pro and con list. List the
down sides and the positives of
any business you are strongly
considering. If there are more
positives than negatives you
most likely have found the
answer to your question, “Can
you really make money at home?”
The bottom line is you are the one
that has to make the decision.
When we are motivated
by goals that have deep meaning, by
dreams that need completion, by pure
love that needs expressing, then we
truly live life.
