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.

The economic strains of our day and the instability of many jobs have caused more and more homeschooling moms to consider working in some capacity. If you find yourself in this position, HomeWork: Juggling Home, Work, and School Without Losing Your Balance may be just what you need.
