Working from Home - Tips to Success

Society has gone through many seasons to get us to where we are today. There was a time when women were expected to stay in the home and raise the children, while all the finances were earned by the men of the house. Then came the two working parent homes. Economics made it important to have a second income and women wanted to branch out and use their minds and express themselves beyond that of their domestic duties. 

Today, more mothers are making a change that allows them to have careers and be stay-at-home mothers. This is truly the best of both worlds. In making this transition, they can use their talents to earn a living and be accessible for their children and completely in tune with their lives. But, how did they manage? What steps did they take?




E-Commerce

E-Commerce is the term used for transactions performed on a computer over the internet. Most people think of it as making an online purchase. But E-commerce is also a tool that the smart business person uses to conduct all kinds of business transactions.

There are more than a few jobs that can be done online without the need to travel to an office. This includes business writing, sales, marketing, customer support, order entry and warranty processing. A transcriptionist can work from their home office. Research is often done off site. 

In order to be competitive in the e-commerce market, you will need to have some interesting e-commerce strategies. You need to do your homework and be ready to excel in the area, thus offering something others do not. 

You will need a website and a platform to use in business. You will need to identify your niche and be ready to market it. It is easy to be selective and to hone in on your skills. However, you need to stick with a platform such as WordPress or Blogger - these are very popular platforms which thousands of companies already use. 



Making time for you


One thing stay-at-home parents sometimes complain about, is between their work and raising the children they have little time for themselves. This leads to burnout. Your children need activities that do not include you, and you need time for just your own needs. It is healthy and fun to put your children in endeavours such as sport or dance. 

Your child goes to their lessons which helps teach them self-control, grace, style, and discipline. It also gives them goals and teaches them how to work toward them. Encourage them to push themselves. Show excitement when you select costumes for dance recitals and praise them for reaching milestones. 

As you can see, it takes some effort and time to carve out the life you want where you can be a hands-on parent and still maintain a career and life of your own. The rewards are immeasurable. Your child will benefit from this more than anything else you can do for them. After all, you are their biggest fan and you are showing them that they are a top priority. At the same time, you are sending a message, that a person can have the life they want if they are willing to do the work.
