Measuring Success for the Work at Home Mom

I appreciate this quote by Booker T. Washington: “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”   The work at home mom may not have reached an elevated position (professionally) but she surely has overcome obstacles, probably every day.

A Steady Paycheck for the Work At Home Mom

Something I often hear from working women who would like to be at home, but don’t see how it’s possible, is that they need to have a “steady paycheck”.  And that can certainly be one of the hardest things to give up when making the leap from an employee to being self-employed. So here are [...]

Yet the pay gap between men and women persists, with women earning about 75% of their equally educated male counterparts. [...]

Work at Home Mom Fears

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882) is quoted as having said: “He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.” I sometimes think it would be better not to have so many fears to conquer! But I do appreciate the wisdom of recognizing that conquering fears is key to [...]
