Becoming a Work at Home Mom – How to Make the Change to Working from Home

Working from home requires discipline

Working from home requires discipline

Work at home moms usually aren’t created overnight. If you are like many moms who decide to work from home, you have probably been frustrated by juggling being a working professional with being a parent and managing your family life. You may have been on a quest to find the perfect work from home job for you.

Now that you’ve found the right opportunity, you may be wondering how you will adjust to your new life as a work from home mom. Not to worry, as it is possible to successfully transition from the corporate world to working from home.

Here are some ideas to help you make this transition and enjoy the best of both worlds, as a mom and as a working professional.

1. Set a schedule. One of the most difficult things in working from home is determining a schedule that will work for you and your family. You now have the freedom to work whenever you want, but you will need some structure in your day so you can get things done, and still meet your family’s needs.

2. Make childcare arrangements. Many work at home moms believe that, since they’re working from home to be with their children, they don’t need to use childcare. If you continue to use childcare, though, you will find you are more productive during your work day, and you’ll be able to give your children more of your attention when they come home. On the plus side, you won’t need to use childcare as often as you did when you worked outside the home.

3. Find other work at home moms to connect with. Whether you join work at home mom forums, or network with other work at home moms in your community, it’s important to have this kind of support. Moms who work at home face many issues that no other group does, and these support networks will give you an opportunity to learn from others’ experiences and share your own.

You will be successful as a work at home mom because you took the time to find the right job that will work best for your life. By using the above ideas, you will soon enjoy the sense of freedom that working from home brings. It is then that you will realize the best of both worlds: being a mom and being able to make a living from home.

    The problem I have with these sites is that they give you information but you have to pay a fee to join up. What if that person doesn’t have the finances to pay for the start up? Then, they can’t do the WORK AT HOME…What a bummer. If there is really a site out there that doesn’t involve forking out money then I’m in but it has to be legitmate…

      Hi Flip-girl, this site isn’t asking for any money to join anything. I feel for you because I remember having the same mindset; it’s one that so steeped in limitations that you can’t even see a good thing when it’s looking you in the face. On this blog (like many others) you have free information. I offer a free complimentary coaching sessions. I do free workshops in my town. ANYTHING you need is available to help you get started. Once you get started and your eyes are opened to the opportunities then the Universe always asks you to step it up and give something to continue. Thats asked of EVERYTHING growing. If your mind is limited and your eyes are closed then you won’t ever get started. A closed mind is the REAL reason why you don’t have the money that you would like to do the things that you want.

    Working from home is easy as long as you can stay focused and relaxed. Take some time away from the computer every hour and spend some time out in the sun.

    Working from home can be very rewarding. Offering Healthcare Products is a Recession-Proof Business. As the population ages and their health declines, going into offering healthcare products and services can be rewarding and very satisfying.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d

    Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks

    working from home means a whole new discipline has to be learned, there are so many distractions that have to be blocked out. whatever means of home working is chosen it has to be treated as a real job, most of all dedication and determination to succeed are a must. Choosing the right opportunity will often prove the hardest of all tasks

    Most people are just like me; learning to work at home, and the problem is that we cannot move up from the learning curve to the earning curve…
    Thank for posting..

    The change made from deciding to work at home is not as easy as most of us think it is. There are a lot of adjustments to make. I think it’s more about how to manage your time. I like the idea in no. 2. I did think before that it’s easy to take care of the kids but it’s not especially if your running on a deadline. And definitely as you’ve said above, a stay at home mom still needs to use childcare but not as frequent as if you were working outside the home. You only use childcare when your work at home really calls for it. Great idea.
