Default Homemade Business For Moms At Home - Salary

Hi Ladies,
I am staying at home mom.

I am trying to decide for myself one question. Stay at home and see my kids are growing or let smb-else to watch these precious moments.

Statics says: if you make 40,000$ out of your home - you bring only 7,000$ to your home.

I found business opportunity for myself to work for 3-5$ per hour at my home (not less than 5hours per day - it is a contract) whenever it is convinient for me. Probably I will make 25$ per day and more if I need (7,000$ per year).

Please tell me your opininon, would you agree to work at home for such money?

Thank you

I don't know where you're located, so I can't evaluate whether the at home hourly rate you earn working from home fair or not.

But I would observe that working out of home often involves hours you're not paid for (commuting, lunch breaks, etc)... and often requires extra costs.

You definitely want to make an apples to apples comparison...

I don't know what kind of money you need to make, but in my opinion, I would do it if it meant I could be there with my kids. You'll never get that time back.

Just my two cents.

If you are comfortable with this amount, you should. However, I do not agree with the contract because they could charge you for work you have not done making you go upside down costing you more in the long run.

Not bad. If you are okey with the amount.

Best of luck! Hope you'll be happier spending time with your kids as well as earning money right at your home, that is, if you decide to stay home.

Depends on what kind of "contract work" you want to do from home, which is what you didn't specify.

To work at home is the greatest opportunity you could have, when it comes to being there for your family.
The money factor has to be equally worth the effort but, be Careful on "Contracts"! If you are doing a production task a lot of your work could be returned if not done perfectly to the companies specifications. Doing "Do-Overs" will cost You 'Time and Money'.
- Personally, I gave up the 9 - 5 gig years ago and never regretted one minute of working from home.
Good Luck.
