Life is definitely not an easy journey. Life’s struggles are worthless but its fruits are priceless! I have been a plain housewife for 8 years. After getting married at an early age of 18, I stayed at home taking good care of my family especially the kids. Some say that a housewife is just a “nobody” because they just stay at home, take care of the chores, the kids, the needs of the family. They did not consider the stress, hard work, time, effort that housewives gave and poured into what they call “lousy chores”.
Second, work at home moms know how to prioritize their tasks. Many are the best list makers in the world and they no how to use their lists. One of the reasons that many moms who first start working at home have a difficult time is they do not have these skills to begin with. If you are just starting out, make a list everyday of the tasks that must be completed. The items on the top of the list should be top priority and so forth. As they are done, cross them off.
Fix things in the house. There is always something to fix at home and the time is never enough. But if you work at home you arrange your time. When you get stuck working on a problem or need 20 minutes break, stand up. Instead of logging in the social network fix something at home, cook, arrange things, clean. This will get you moving and at the same time will get some work done.
Family support. When I told my kids that I would be #capitalone I thought they were going to write my name in on the presidential ballot. It was the best news to them. My husband on the other hand, being the head of our household and bread winner, was a little less enthusiastic. We had to complete step two above before he was on board with the idea. We are one of the families that had to include the option of my working from home in addition to staying at home.
There are several ways to start a home business. One way is to complete some training courses that will teach the background information needed to do certain jobs. One job that requires little training and is done online is data entry. Several larger companies will outsource this job due to the fact that it is easy and can be done purely online.
Whatever your reason for working at home, you probably gave it a lot of thought. Working at home isn’t so simple that most people can just plunge into it. There’s usually a long search for just the right job or home business opportunity, and much concern about scams.
Try taking a short walk in the morning. Eat your lunch away from your desk. Make a phone call to a friend or family member that isn’t work related. Watch a short TV show in the afternoon with a cup of coffee or tea before getting back to work.
If you are working at home as a stay at home mom there are a few things that you must be aware of. This can be an exciting time for you if you manage your time properly.
