Work At Home Moms: So You’re Having A Baby

Posted by

I know it isn’t easy. Here you are expecting and needing to be pampered and appreciated, and you have to start thinking about how you are going to earn a good income working from home and taking care of a new baby at the same time. As if having a baby wasn’t enough of a life-changing event, you are going to have to change the way you work, and when you work, and where you work. You are probably going to have to become an independent contractor if you want to work on your own schedule and have enough flexibility to take care of a baby at the same time. The good part is that working from home on your own, you get to call the shots. You can be your own boss, set your own schedule, and be as creative as you want to be without some know nothing boss interfering with your latest brainstorm. The problem is deciding what to do and how to earn a great living doing it. You probably also have to concern yourself with money. Right now it seems like it is all out go what with baby furniture, pampers, baby cloths, doctor bills, and the loss of a steady income from your prior job. You need something that requires no investment. But there is hope. What if you could do something you really love to do, are good at, and can make money, at the same time that you are networking and socializing with friends and neighbors: something that will keep you from being lonely and feeling isolated from your former co-workers, something that will let you use your imagination while you earn lots of money. It is possible to find something to do that will earn you a great living and give you pleasure and enjoyment at the same time. Of course nothing can compare to the happiness your baby will bring you, but sometimes you need some grown up companionship and mental stimulation even if it is by e-mail, or on the telephone. I don’t want to keep you in suspense any longer. What you can do that you are good at, need to do, and enjoy doing, is shopping. Yes that’s right, you can make money shopping from home in your free time while you are socializing with friends and making new friends and acquaintances. It’s a win, win situation. You can do this from home by shopping on the Internet. You can take control of your own future and help provide your family with a wonderful living. You can be the boss. You can do what you are good at. Who doesn’t like to shop?

    Thanks for all of the really great comments. Working from home is a great solution for those who have young children. It's important to remember that even though you're working from home, you still have to work. It takes a great deal of organization and discipline.

    The amazing thing about most opportunities now is that they can be worked from anywhere in the world.  With online payment processors and the availability of Internet access makes working form a laptop anywhere in the world a real possibility.

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I have three kids and it can be difficult to make everything work. Finding the time to take care of kids and work at the same time can be very stressful.

    Having a baby changes everything whether you work at home, in the office or on the moon.  Suddenly it is just not you to consider any more and you may have to be home for a certain time etc..... why not start a blog on life with a new baby??
