Many homeschooling moms and dads find themselves considering part-time
self-employment opportunities to help supplement their family budgets,
to begin re-establishing themselves professionally, or to gain
some extra resources on the side to help fund a family vacation
or an expensive curriculum that could help with a child's learning
struggles. When school seems to take up such a large part of our
day in addition to normal household responsibilities, how can one
manage a work commitment as well?
HomeWork: Juggling Home, Work, and School Without Losing Your
Balance may answer some of your questions. This 92-page
e-book is divided into convenient sections highlighting homeschooling
moms who pursue work-at-home opportunities. These sections are
home-based entrepreneurial ventures, computer-based work, creative
writing ventures, and business support companies.
In reviewing this e-book, I found that it stimulated my own creative
thinking about possible work-at-home opportunities. It is amazing
to see the innovation of others in creating a revenue stream from
things as simple and common as recycled blue jeans. The profiles
contained in this e-book also provide a plethora of practical tips
on organizing workspaces, time, and priorities to be able to accomplish
your goals with your new venture while not allowing school and
household responsibilities to fall by the wayside. The appendix
contains additional helpful Internet resources. This list is broken
into subject headings for easy identification of resources that
may be helpful to your situation.
