Work At Home Mom Dreams

Have you ever read the book Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly? This little book is a remarkable story about a janitorial company that invested in its employees’ dreams in order to decrease turnover. And it worked marvelously! This book exemplifies the legitimacy of honoring dreams. Though it is not geared toward  working at home, I […]

I Have Too Much to Do!

Any work at home mom….any mom, really, has this thought at some time or another. I had it recently.  And it seemed to loom larger and larger the more I thought about it. My typical response to this situation is to hunker down and barrel through. I can be very self-disciplined and persistent. I get […]

Women and Working at Home – A Perfect Fit

I just came across these facts* about the economic status of women in America: More women than men have received a graduate education and women’s gains in educational attainment have significantly outpaced those of men. Yet the pay gap between men and women persists, with women earning about 75% of their equally educated male counterparts. […]

At Home With My Family

Just being at home. That’s the glory of being a work at home mom. I was visiting with other moms at home yesterday and we were sharing with one another examples of precious times with our children…times that we would have missed had we not been at home. For instance, even though I may be […]

Fallacious Fraud Alert

So, the United States Postal Service sent me and likely everyone else a brochure in the mail (addressed to “Resident”), which asked “Do You Know the Warning Signs of Fraud?”. The brochure proceeded to tell me how to avoid becoming a victim of fraud. Stuff like: “Buyers want to overpay you for an item and […]

Quitting Points

I reached a quitting point today. You know, one of those super frustrating experiences where you just want to throw in the towel! I focused most of the day on some internet and computer projects, using new applications that I had to learn as I went. And there was one thing I just could NOT […]

Entrepreneurism Shines

This is a great time for the entrepreneurial work-at-home mom (it’s a mouthful, but describes us moms with a home-based business pretty well). So, why is this a great time for women with nonmom skills who want to use them from home? Because the entire entrepreneurial landscape is hot. This is the time of year […]

The Importance of “No” for the Work at Home Mom

In order to be successful, there is one word the work at home mom should become comfortable with. That word is “no”. There are always tons of things vying for our time and attention. And, because we are “at home”, others sometime think we have more of that precious commodity of time, and so are […]

Addressing Tolerations

I addressed a toleration today. What, you say? You don’t know what a toleration is or how it likes to be addressed?! Well, if you’re a work at home mom, I bet you have a lot of them and it would be my pleasure to invite you to address them. You see, my business coach […]

Is Your Ladder Leaning Against The Right Wall?

“So, what do you want to be when you grow up? That question may appear a little trite, but think about it for a moment. Are you–right now–who you want to be, what you dreamed you’d be, doing what you always wanted to do? Be honest. Sometimes people find themselves achieving victories that are empty–successes […]
