There are a few things I have been trying to work out a system for. I have my lesson plans. I really want to get started selling those more than they have been. I also enjoy the affiliate marketing aspect and posting these recommendations for others to check out. As a work at home mom, I still believe in the importance of having enough time to spend with my family.
One thing I am thankful for in regards to working online is the ability to work however many hours a day you want. Now, I am a workaholic so it is a good thing that I have a newborn and a 2 year old to keep me busy or I would probably be working on too many projects all at once for 12 hours a day, seven days a week(been there, done that…burned out!)
With the 2 kids needing my time, I find I get on average 2-4 hours a day to work online. This is working out perfectly. My family is getting enough time with me, and now that I am focusing more on a few specifics for my business, the time I have is just right. I no longer have time to surf around and get distracted with other business possibilities. I do my scheduled tasks for the day and log off. This seems to be an ideal solution for me as a work at home mom.
My income is still minimal compared to when I worked all the time but it is growing slowly and I have every confidence that I will reach my 5 year goal as planned.
I would love to hear from other parents on what they have decided to start on, how much work they get done, and their income/plans. How do you schedule your work and play time as a work at home mom?
