At times, it feels like you’ll never get any work accomplished with all the racket going on.
Working from home allows for mama to be close by at all times while still contributing to your family’s financial well-being. There are plenty of work-from-home opportunities available to us moms, the key is finding one that fits your situation and abilities.
Here are three tips for any work-at-home mama to help get some money-making time in.
If you know that your child’s favorite show or movie is coming on, and you know that it will hold their attention for a specific amount of time, then get to working.
Or, if it seems that your children are at their best-behaved early in the morning, then work then.
The key for moving fast is to find those allotted time frames when your kids will let you get some work in.
Use Nap Time To Your Advantage
If you have younger children who still nap, then that’s the time when you should power your way through your most important need-to-get-done-now work projects.
From the moment your little one hits the pillow, you get down to business.
