  1. But it’s not all sunshine and roses. Working from home means literally doing my work in my home. There’s no physical separation between my personal and professional life, no clearly set times when I’m “on” and “off” one or the other. I love being able to make my own schedule, but that flexibility is also my downfall. If I’m not strictly disciplined with my time, which is not exactly my strong suit, it’s too easy to blur the lines between work and home. I tend to work in spurts here and there throughout the day and evening, which makes it feel like I’m working all day, even though I only work part-time hours. And I worry that’s what my kids are seeing too. I’m home, but I’m not “there” a lot of the time. They see me working, but I’m on the computer, which doesn’t necessarily translate to “work” for them. They just know Mom isn’t able to give them her full attention. And God love ‘em, they’re not particularly helpful in that area either. When I get up extra early to get some hours in before they wake up, they always seem to get up early too. When I wait until they’re in bed to get some work hours in, they call me from their beds or suddenly want to have a deep, heart-to-heart discussion late into the night. I can go into my office, but you know how it is. When Mom’s in the house, Mom’s in the house. I frequently get around this issue by going to work in coffee shops, which is one of my favorite things to do anyway. But I can’t do that every day. And then there’s The House. Over the years, I’ve found that keeping young kids busy without resorting to too many screens usually involves some level of mess. Busy kids = happy kids = Mommy can work uninterrupted for a while, but it also means more cleanup time and energy for Mom (or more accurately, for the kids, but teaching them requires my time and energy too). I also have the never-ending piles of laundry, the shelves that always need dusting, the dishes that just keep on getting dirty, and so on. Of course, these are things all families deal with, but when you work at home, those things tug at you all day. I’m part of the mess and contributing to it, while at the same time being driven crazy by it. Since work and kids take priority, the house gets put on the back burner — and then sometimes it gets forgotten and boils over and sets off the fire alarm. *sigh* It’s not all bad, of course. I never have to miss anything my kids are a part of, and I do get to enjoy a lot of time with my little people. I have been forced to learn to compartmentalize my time and set clear boundaries, which is a good thing. I have had to learn not to feel guilty for working in front of my kids, though admittedly I still struggle with that sometimes. My husband more than pulls his own weight, so overall, the benefits outweigh the challenges. I wouldn’t trade my work-from-home life, and I’m incredibly grateful that I have that freedom. But I would caution others not to romanticize it too much. As a work-at-home mom, you get the best of all worlds, but also the worst.
  2. It’s 9:45 p.m. and my eyelids are starting to droop as I fix a typo in my first paragraph. My son calls from his bedroom, “Mom! I’m scared! Can you come lay with me?” I ask my husband to go in my place. I have a deadline first thing in the morning, and I have to get this done before my brain turns to mush. “But I want Mommy!” my son cries. “She’s busy working, sweetie,” my husband tells him. My heart lurches a bit. An image of my son sitting in a therapist’s office someday flashes before my eyes. “My mom was always ‘busy working,’” he says, rocking back and forth in the fetal position on the couch. Dramatic, I know. But the guilt that comes along with working from home is real, and was something I never really expected. From the time I was very young, I’d always dreamed of being a stay-at-home mom. I figured I’d work for a while, then get married, have kids, and make motherhood my full-time gig. I did work for a while, and then I got married, but when our first baby came along, we couldn’t really afford for me not to work at all. So I started a small editing business from home, which allowed me to bring in a little cash and keep up my professional skills. After a while, I wanted more regular work, so I started doing online tutoring. I set my hours around my husband’s schedule, and it all worked well. Fast-forward 15 years, and I’ve had at least seven work-from-home jobs, usually more than one at time. It’s been great for the most part. I do get the best of all worlds — getting to make my own schedule, being able to be with my kids during the day, keeping my foot in the door professionally, and contributing to the household income. I feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to find work I can do from home all these years.
  3. One of the coolest factors about working at home means that you have a wide variety of flex-friendly companies to choose from. But if you thought that your job search stopped within the U.S. borders, think again. There are many international companies that are hiring remote workers.

  4. There are a variety of home-based opportunities that allow you to work from home full-time or part-time in a number of different industries. Some home-based businesses are run entirely from your house while others have a home office with service calls to customer’s location. One type of home-based business is franchise ownership. From tutoring services and child education programs to working in the pet industry, there are a number of home-based franchise opportunities to match a variety of skill sets and interests. What is a franchise and why consider a home-based franchise? At the most basic level, a franchise is a business that is owned and operated by an individual or franchisee. The business is overseen by a much larger company called the franchisor. When you become a franchisee, you buy the rights to use a proven business model backed by training and support tools. You are also buying the rights to a brand that in most cases is well known and established. Many stores and restaurants that you visit every day are franchises such as Subway, Ace Hardware, McDonalds and Pizza Hut. While these are some of the bigger franchises, there are a number of smaller franchises that will allow you to work from home. Besides the awesome flexibility working from home provides, most at-home franchises offer lower start-up costs and overhead due to all or part of the business being operated from your house. Home-based franchises are ideal for working moms who can set their own schedules and save on child care costs. There may also be tax savings available when you run your business out of your house, making a home-based business an economical choice for many of those who want to be their own boss. So, what are some franchises that are particularly well suited as a home-based business? Here are five for you to consider. Bloomin Blinds Bloomin Blinds is a family owned and operated blind repair and sales franchise that was started in 2001. As a nationally recognized brand, franchisees benefit from the company’s proven business model and are provided advanced training, powerful marketing tools, and ongoing support, all in a family-friendly atmosphere. With low start up costs and even a franchise fee discount for military veterans and public safety employees, Bloomin Blinds is an excellent opportunity for the work-at-home mom. Bricks 4 Kidz Bricks 4 Kidz is a children’s enrichment program franchise that provides kids with an environment where they can learn, build and play with LEGO bricks designed to teach the fundamentals of STEM education. This is achieved through a variety of programs including after-school enrichment classes, summer camps, birthday parties, and field trips. Ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as the #1 Children’s Enrichment Program and #2 Best Personal Franchise, Bricks 4 Kidz is an excellent option for work-at-home moms. Franchise owners benefit from a proven business model that is truly a home-based business. Bricks 4 Kidz has a low start up cost with low overhead and is easy to operate. It also offers franchise owners an in-depth Franchise Program that includes start up support, comprehensive on-the-job training, use of proprietary marketing and operations systems, and ongoing support. Club Z! ClubZ! offers in-home and online tutoring services for students and business professionals including pre-k to College one-on-one tutoring, test preparation, and college admissions consulting.

To ensure long-term success, Pet Wants offers in-depth training on their proven marketing and operating systems as well as grassroots marketing and community education programs to franchise owners.

  5. When Kristen decided to leave a lucrative career she loved to become a full-time mom, it wasn’t the easy transition that she had thought it would be. Kristen wanted so badly to be home with her infant son, and felt lucky that she could make that decision, but she quickly realized that she was missing some of the passion and fulfillment that her career had provided. This new phase in her life opened her up to find new passion and purpose at Peach, a growing fashion company that gives women the platform to build 100% flexible businesses on their own schedule and terms. We sat down with Kristen, Stylist & Executive Director at Peach, to learn about her journey. From working in the financial industry to becoming a full-time mom and Peach entrepreneur, we hope her story will inspire you. Tell us about your transition from full-time career to full-time mom: I worked in technology sales & finance for 10 years. This was a really fun and lucrative career for me, and so after my first child, I knew I was going to go back. However, I didn’t realize how hard that would be. I was getting up, feeding the baby, getting dressed, taking him to daycare, and then commuting more than an hour to work. As a result, I couldn’t focus or feel happy at my job anymore. When I was there, all I wanted to do was get home to the baby, and it felt like having two full-time jobs—my career and then this brand new job as a mom. I needed to step back and re-evaluate my position, and so that’s when I decided to leave my work and become a full-time mom. How did you find out about Peach? I was actually looking for new clothes. My wardrobe was full of fancy work attire that I no longer was wearing, and I needed clothes that I could be a “mom” in. Clothes that could be tugged on or drooled in if needed, but I could still look stylish and put together. So I essentially went on Google to search for activewear and athleisure, and that’s how I found Peach. I was immediately drawn in by how beautiful the clothes were, and once I saw that Peach offered a flexible business opportunity, I knew I needed to learn more. About a week later, I signed up to become a Peach stylist and received my first starter kit full of awesome clothes to wear and share. What made Peach the right work-at-home opportunity for you? Being at Peach quickly felt like I was back at my corporate job, but I had the freedom to do it on my own terms. I could stay at home with my son, and work a job I love with a community of women that I really connected to. And, I felt like I had a real seat at the table at Peach. A huge turning point for me was going to Peach’s Leadership Summit and getting to meet the CEO, COO, and our whole community of stylists. It really made me realize that I matter at this company, and that I’m not just a cog in the wheel. So I keep telling people, if you are slightly interested in this company, get involved now, because this is the ground floor. How has Peach impacted you as a woman and mom? Becoming a Peach stylist has raised my confidence so much. As a new mom, my life took a 180, and I was feeling lost after leaving my full-time job. Peach has given me the confidence to put myself out there in the real world again, and I’ve learned that when I’m passionate about something, nothing will stop me from getting it done. I look forward to doing this every day, and on days when I’m tired, I feel motivated to keep going. I tell myself, Kristen, you got this amazing business to work, so suck it up buttercup! What excites you for this year? Recently, my sister joined my team as a Peach stylist, and I’m so excited to be able to work alongside her building this brand. We’ve always wanted to work together and I never thought it would be possible until now. Beyond that, I’m excited for all our upcoming collections, the community we’re building with fitness and fashion ambassadors around the country, and for my personal growth. I’m excited to watch my paychecks go up, to grow my team, and to keep having fun doing this. What advice would you give to other work-at-home moms? I would tell them to take it one day at a time. Do what you can when you can do it, because otherwise, you’ll just get overwhelmed. Pick something one day you want to accomplish, and just do it, start to finish, with a positive attitude.

  7. 02 Prioritize Your Needs You've probably figured out by now that no work/home situation is perfect. To get as close as possible to your own ideal, you and your family must set priorities. For potential work-at-home moms, it is a good idea to break down the reasons into two groups: reasons to work and reasons to work from home. Here is what your lists might look like: Reasons to Work: Financial need/security Career advancement Save for retirement/college Personal fulfillment Pay down debt Reasons to Work From Home: Spend more time with kids Eliminate commute Save money on childcare Leave unpleasant work environment Reduce stress Once you have your lists, you'll want to rank the items. Then, as you look at job possibilities, think about how they fit with these priorities. 03 Plan the Practical Aspects Most work-at-home moms don't start out with a full-time telecommuting position right away. The work-at-home lifestyle is usually something you build over time. In fact, you may need to build up your savings first. Plan to start small. If you're moving from the office to telecommuting, try a couple days a week at first to see how it works for you and your employer. If you're building a business, that also takes time. Here are a few things to take into consideration: Child Care - Figure out how much and what kind of childcare you'll need. Ground Rules - Adjusting to working from home can be a difficult transition for you and your family. Clear rules and expectations can ease the way. Home Office - You'll need to find a place of your own within your house where you can set up a home office and work with minimal distractions. Organization - You'll need to have systems in place for organizing your home life and your work life to make things go as smoothly as possible. Building a Nest Egg - Starting small can mean a reduction in income in the short term, so you must plan for this. 04 Find a Work-at-Home Job If, after mulling your options, you've decided to start looking for a work-at-home job, here are some useful links for work-at-home moms: Companies Hiring for Work-at-Home Jobs - An alphabetical directory lists companies hiring people to work from home in fields ranging from customer service and data entry to PR and travel. Top Telecommuting Companies - If you prefer to work for a major company, one of these firms may be the place for you. List of Work-at-Home Call Center Jobs - These companies hire home-based call center agents. Be sure to determine if a work-at-home job is legit before applying. Many work-at-home job postings are scams. Luckily, there are a number of sites dedicated to helping moms look for remote jobs or other types of flexible work.
  8. If you're considering trying to join the ranks of successful work-at-home moms who make money while staying home, you probably have some questions. You might be wondering where to find work-at-home jobs that pay well and how to avoid work-at-home scams. You may even be wondering if you would like being a work-at-home mom. The first step to joining the ranks of successful work-at-home moms is not finding a job or starting a business. It is taking a long, hard look at yourself, your family, and your resume, and deciding whether being a work-at-home mom is what you want. You'll need to take into consideration whether you have the personality traits to work from home, what you will gain from it, and what you might have to give up. Below are four steps to help you get started on your journey to becoming a successful work-at-home mom. 01 What's the Right Career Path for You? There are many careers paths for work-at-home moms. These include: Telecommute the job you already have Become a consultant or freelancer Start your own business Find a new telecommuting job in your field of expertise Dive into something entirely different Whether you're in the workplace now or you're already a stay-at-home mom, the best place to start is with your own resume. If you are currently employed, can you negotiate a flexible work schedule that includes working from home? If you've already left the workforce, look back at your last job. Network with your former co-workers. They may know of openings or freelance work that could be done from home. Search national job listings for that type of work with "telecommute," "remote," or "work at home" as additional keywords. If your skill set or current career is not a good match for working at home, consider breaking out into a new field. Online learning is one approach. Starting a home business is another. If you do opt for a new career, keep in mind that you may need to hone your skills in a traditional workplace before becoming a home-based worker.
