Red face working from home

I have a candle business I run and I also do some customer service work for other companies. It all allows me to be able to do what I need and not have to ask to take off work every time something comes up. The ability to be able to be with my kids and also be involved with their school and extra activities is priceless to me!

Red face We Farm

Hi, My family farms. Everyone works and it is alot of long hours. I swath or cut hay for extra cash. My hubby owns the farm so it is nice to work and be the boss' wife. I have done a few things here and there for extra cash too.
In friendship, Lori

Default Have been a WAHM for many years...

and I love it! I've had a daycare in my home for the last decade, but I am now closing it (long process-parents don't want to move their children!). I will continue to care for my 2 grandchildren who live here in town, though.

I have had a sewing business out of my home for the last few years, and am wanting to expand that. I specialize in aprons, kitchen accessories, modest clothing for women, and also modest clothing for children.

I also write. I have been published in Women of Simplicity Companion, I put out a community newsletter every month here in my town (I do all of the writing for it), and I have a couple of blogs online.

It all keeps me busy! LOL

Wow Cynthia! you sound busy! I'm sure it is so hard for the parents to need to find another daycare especially after being in one that they have loved.

Do you have a website with the things you sew?

Would love to see your blogs too!

I am a wahm too!

I make my main income doing legal document coding. I also do some editing, data entry, pledge calls, and customer service.

I like keeping those different options so I won't get burnt out on doing too much of one thing, plus I always have work when I need it.

I am not able to take many calls because of my children so I only do that when my husband is home on the weekends. I love the other positions because my children can play and scream while I work and there won't be any problem. The flexibility is the best since I make my own schedule and can take off whenever I need to run errands or take them to Dr appts. My hubby is on dialysis so it also allows me to be here to take care of him.

Hi from one WAHM to another! I agree that it can be challenging to run a home based business with little ones in the background... but I wouldn't have it any other way! My kids are only 4 and 2 1/2 right now, but I try to find ways that they can "help" with my business, which makes them feel very important. And during those times when I really need quiet (to make phone calls, etc.) my products keep them entertained.

Blessings,
Christy
