One of the biggest challenges Moms face is juggling all the chores around the house, raising the kids, being a good wife and on top of that add the focus to make an income from home as well. Any of those things are more than enough for a full time job. But moms deal with this every single day and are not compensated for it. So to start something new like a home business it can often times be a challenge. Of all the moms I’ve worked with and that succeeded to create a part time or even lucrative full time income there are several things they all had in common. They had open communication with their family, created a schedule for their working hours as if they had to leave their home for a job and stayed consistent over a long period of time.
First off let’s talk about a mom working from home and the family dynamic. Often times your family becomes very dependent on you and they rely on you. Some of your time will be focused on your business and creating an income so openly explaining this from the beginning to establish some realistic expectations will help with both your kids and your husband. These people in your life who love you and probably don’t say thank you enough depend on you. Once you are not there just the slightest bit they feel a sudden abandonment. It can create issues in your family that you can avoid from the beginning.
Second, every business on the planet has business hours. To help your family get used to mom working from home as well as to get your husband accustomed to what is going on setting the standard for business hours will help. Plus your clients and customers will become accustomed to when you are available based off of when you were. Keeping business hours is one of the hardest and most rewarding things you will due for you and your family when you are a mom working from home. Creating that separation just slightly will definitely enhance your chances of working from home as a mom and making an income.
The third and final thing that any mom working from home would benefit from is just simply being consistent. There are no true get rich quick schemes but there are some real genuine ways to work from home. Being consistent is the only way to learn grow and develop in any single thing we learn. Starting from home for the very first time is no different. Open communication and setting up business hours for your business will help with this. Your success ultimately depends on your dedication even if it’s only 2 hours a day proof of your dedication is how often you actually apply those two hours.
It doesn’t matter if you are similar to a Michelle Tascoe who has one baby at home and just made 6,000 dollars in one month or if you are like Jennifer Murphy who had 4 kids and made 92,000 her first year. To have that level of success as I watched how both of them grew their incomes as we worked together the fact remains. You must openly communicate with your family, set a schedule and be consistent and you will have success.
Thank Moms for all you do!

Today I was about to write and article on Tips to Succeed Working from Home as a Stay at Home Mom based off of what I’ve seen with the hundreds of mom’s I’ve worked with over the years. Moms are absolutely the glue and engine that holds our culture and society together. The burdens and struggles they face day in and day out are incredible.
THEY ONLY GET ONE STINKING DAY A YEAR, FOR US TO SAY THANKS!
As I was about to write the article I got a very cool call from a mom I’ve been working with one on one. Michelle Tascoe, works about 15-20 hours a week and she just had her biggest day ever, $6,200 in one day. She always wanted to be a stay at home mom when she first got married. But like all of us her and her husband struggled with trying to get more with less money. More time and more financial freedom while still being able to be a mom and a wife. Her husband already had a full time job and works as a marketing/branding consultant part time on the side.
Michelle and I have been working one on one very closely since the beginning of the year and she’s only started. It gets bigger and better from here. Anyone working with Michelle is absolutely BLESSED, she has an incredible heart and a drive to see people succeed.
Other stories I’ve heard this week!
-Jeshel from IL, just made 1,000 dollars her second day in business.
-Lisa in Atlanta, just made $7,400 in the last two months.
-Jessica Fletcher, This week generated $3,200 in one day.
Congrats ladies! Thanks for being moms and we are absolutely excited for you and your success!
