The "term" stay-at-home mom can have such a range of meanings these days. Some mom’s home school their children. Others volunteer for the various activities their family is a part of and end up making that a full-time job. Many, like me, want to be at home with their children but find it mentally and financially necessary to work as well. While the various household tasks and requirements of raising children are a job in itself, the majority of moms I know find many other activities to occupy their time whether they are a paid or volunteer job.
Seven years ago I became an independent distributor for a direct sales company. Over the course of those years my personal situation has changed from being single, to married, and now a stay-at-home mom. While there are many moms involved in direct sales, some of the moms working from home have created their own small businesses or have been given a home office from a corporation.
Moms working from home face a unique set of challenges as they work two jobs simultaneously: raising their children and building a business. Regardless of what our business is, we are all moms working to achieve much of the same goals fighting the same battles. In creating this blog, I wish to unite women in support of one another.
