Get out a pen and paper and add these numbers up – the amount of time you spend getting primped for work each day plus the number of minutes — or, in some places, hours — you spend on your daily round-trip commute. Now multiply that number by five and you’ll see just how many hours you’ll gain if you can manage a side hustle that you can do in your pajamas. Over the weeks, months, and years, it could add up to thousands of hours!

I was surprised that Nerium International was not on your list. The company is less than 4 years old and has broken so many records! Our CEO, Jeff Olson, gets invited year after year to speak to and teach other CEOs at their annual conferences. He is nicknamed “The Millionaire Maker”, and has brought many many companies from the bottom to the top. Nerium did $100 Million their first year with one product, in one country. And it doubles every year after that! It is also the youngest company to reach the top 40 list of the Direct Selling Association! This company is climbing fast to the top, and I’m proud to be involved in it.
Now that I have three kids, people ask me if I’m going to cut back. Am I going to work less or write less or do less because I have several small children? Any given day you ask me, I might shrug my shoulders and mumble something about student loans and how kids are expensive, but the truth is that the answer is never. I’m never going to lean out on the areas of life that bring me joy.

No list of work from home blogs would be complete without mentioning The Work at Home Woman.

"Work-from-home-moms are incredible – even if your target customers aren’t mothers. They know how to maximize their time, because they are moms, and know what a resource time is," Akerson said. "Eventually we realized it wasn’t just a coincidence that we kept hiring work-from-home-moms, it was actually part of the mission of Kindred Bravely to enable more families to have the work-life balance that we had found in our remote team. Since my husband and I both craved work that would let us be more available to our children than a traditional office and teaching job would allow, we made sure our company values and structure would align with that balance. With advances in technology, we found it was possible to form a completely remote team, which came with many unexpected benefits."

Daycare is super expensive all over the country for the most part, but I’m so glad you’re finding success with freelance writing! I have my family help out a lot with childcare when I need it but my son is a older and just finished kindergarten so he’s in school for most of the day. I still would like to be more present when he gets out of school so I’d love to turn my freelance writing side hustle into a full-time gig and just work during school hours and when I can during the summer. We’ll see how it goes.

Today I want to reveal a snippet of my everyday life and share with you what my day looks like. I have to reiterate here that I don’t believe in fixed schedules, just a good routine. I don’t dictate my life around a predetermined schedule, instead I have a general idea of what I need to accomplish that day and try my best to do them. If I don’t complete them, it’s not a big deal. I just shake it off and move onto the next day.

I strongly suspected you had bought a house before you ever announced it after reading about your househunting. And I was sure you were not going to abandon Babywoods to daycare services and troop off to work. It may come as a surprise how much you bond with that little life once you can actually hold it in your arms. I remember crying all the way to work after dropping off my first baby at the sitter’s every morning. I was miserable. Fortunately we decided nothing was worth it, not even being poor if that’s what it took for me to be home full time. So I did get to raise my own children and be a homemaker. It is where this woman’s heart is. I am glad it is yours also. Babywoods is VERY happy about it, too!
When you first start working at home full-time, there’s can be a lot of change in a short period of time. Everyone at home is impacted in different ways. My husband and I have different joys and pressures in this phase of our lives (young kids, freelancing, new bosses and more), so it’s critical we consciously make an effort to stay connected as a couple in the midst of our wonderful chaos. The same goes with our children. Working at home means my oldest daughter is getting used to hearing, “Mommy is working” a lot more. Fortunately, because I work at home I can say yes to being with her a lot more, too. That means long walks, picking her up from school earlier, and just being together.

It sounds obvious, but I've definitely been in the situation in which I'm deep "in the zone" and my kids are craving my attention. I've found that when I dedicate a set period of time to them, whether it's reading, drawing, walking the dog together or just having a chat, they're then cool with amusing themselves when I go back to work for an hour or so.  


Congratulations on your new and exciting life! Achieving your dream of moving to your beautiful homestead, raising your gorgeous daughter, and embarking on an exciting new chapter in your career is truly inspiring! You have become one of my favourite FIRE blogs and I think it is because of your excellent writing (you ARE a writer) and your unique voice! Enjoy it all and be proud of all you guys have accomplished – it is incredible!
While skipping office drama (and drinks with co-workers) seems like a trip to Disneyland, one must not forget that the office can be an idea oasis. Your co-workers got their jobs for a reason. Many of them have great ideas and diverse perspectives. Without little side chats in the hallways or water cooler talks, it’s possible that moms who work solely at home miss out on key conversations that could spark their creativity. 
For many women, this sort of set-up would be a total dream. They get to spend time with their families while also advancing their careers and contributing financially to their families. As President Obama mentioned in his State Of The Union address in January, childcare costs are astronomical. Mothers often leave the workforce not by choice, but because it just doesn’t make economic sense to stay—especially if they have more than one child. Having one parent work from home—as a part-time employee or as an entrepreneur—helps families free up some of those funds.
I am happy for you! I’ve been a WAHM for almost a year now. What pushed me into it was having two very scary incidents of bleeding during my first trimester and bed rest for several weeks. I decided to quit a very stressful marketing job (we had shifting hours) for the baby’s sake. Now, she’s a happy 4-month-old and I’m exclusively nursing her, and toying with the idea of homeschooling when she’s older.
I am a nurse and have telecommuted from home for 7 years. I worked full time until a year ago, and my company requires I have child care on days I work. I had to have several years of nursing experience in a hospital before I could land this work (for me it was ICU and Labor and Delivery). I earned certification as a managed care nurse and it gave me more options. Part-time is usually not an option in insurance, but I volunteered to learn every line of business we have, and when they created out first float pool position, it meant I was the best candidate to pilot it. I now cover people when they are off, work 4-8 days a month, and still telecommute.
 My eBook The Bootstrap VA and my Facebook group is full of women pursuing VA (virtual assistant) work so they can be home with their kids. – Lisa Morosky at The Bootstrap VA (Lisa did some VA work for me last summer as I was getting ready to launch my Natural Birth Stories book. I love that she is empowering other moms to find jobs as VAs so they can stay at home too!)
If you are interested, stop by. And if you, Alexa, would like to know more or would at least add a note to your list that single moms can earn a real, full time income in the adult industry – on their own, no need to get naked or do gross stuff. It’s hard work though and I also basically work full time – with the exception that I work whenever I want, so I always have time for the kids.

I know that from the outside my life looks a little (a lot?) crazy. So much of the time I feel like I’m playing a game of human Jenga: All of my pieces have to balance just so in order for the tower to stand. Like Jenga, sometimes we fall, and other times we are remarkably sturdy. I’m still learning what it means to find balance. Still, I am well aware that working from home (or my van) is a luxury. I feel so grateful that I can cobble together a series of part-time jobs and opportunities in order to help support my family and still play with Playdough mid-morning on a Monday.
In regard to exercise, I used to really love running, but I had a fall right before Annie was born, and while I would still I would like to run, I am a bit scared of it! I would rather have another baby with no epidural that fall and bust my knees running again. Right now, I like the quickness and ease of using an app called Seven for their HIIT.  I use this app 5 days a week to do their high intensity interval training (HIIT). I always work out before they wake up so I can get showered and ready to go before they wake up.

Another way to get affordable child care: Pool your resources with several other working moms and hire one babysitter to watch all your children at the same time. Even without the sitter, you can get together with other WAHMs and let the kids play while you all work. "I found that if a child has a playdate, he or she is often amused long enough to allow you to do work that doesn't require extreme quiet," says freelance writer Melissa Dutton, of Columbus, Ohio, who also sometimes swapped child care for her two kids with another working mom a few hours a week. "I knew that she worked from home, too, so I offered to take her kid first, and it grew from there."
If you are worried about the financial implications of trying to find jobs from home for moms, then consider the success of some moms who previously earned up to $20 per hour but decided to leave their jobs and stay home with the kids. Since they have working partners, many of them have reported that they only need to earn $500 to $700 a month in order to make up the difference between their current income requirements and what they earned when they were working outside of the house. That is due to the fact that they no longer have to pay for childcare (or only have to pay a small amount), do not have commuting costs, and do not have to pay other work-related expenses like buying clothes, lunches, and coffee. Of course, how much you will need to make depends on the wage you earned before deciding to stay at home. But if you were making $20 an hour or less outside the home, then it is likely that, in addition to your partner's income, you could easily get by on $500 to $700 a month (or even less) if you are thrifty and find ways to save money.

I would like the additional income so I am hoping to find a job that I can do from home. This is all very new to me and to be honest I am kinda scared. I have been working at my current position for over 6 years now.Do you have any recommendations for me to get started?

On the employee side, when surveyed, two-thirds of Americans say that they would like to work from home. And that desire has turned into action; the number of regular employees who work from home grew by 103 percent from 2005 to 2016. There are now 3.7 million American employees working from home.1 That same focus on working from home is also seen with those who are self-employed. In 2013, Forbes reported that over half of the small businesses in the country were home-based.2
