Default Why Moms Should Start A Home Based Business Today

Here is an article about why moms should start a home business.

"Most Moms think about starting a home based business at one time or another. Maybe the youngest has started school, and Mom suddenly has a lot of free time. Or perhaps Mom was successful in her career before having her first child, and wished to put her skills to good use in a home based business."

Okay moms, what did you think of this article?

Great article! Sums up everything very nicely.

The first year I was home with our first child I was a Mom 100% of the time - did nothing else. I decided to start up mI really identify with the part about the business being "something else" for me.y design business because I literally felt part of my brain melting away. You need to develop all of your parts to be sane as a whole if that makes sense. I wouldn't trade being a Mom for anything in the world but having a business is a definite necessity for me. I think more Moms should try it!

I think it's naive to believe that any mom who wants her own business can be successful. Many small businesses fail every year and this might be setting some unsuspecting mom up for a fall. I talk with way too many people who have started a business will zero understanding of what it takes to be successful.

I would have preferred the author explain the process of running your own home based business rather than the fluff article they wrote. Just my 2 cents worth.
