If you are a stay-at-home mom, you don't have to give up your time with your children just to start a fulfilling career. You can own your own business and make a steady income to support your family while spending plenty of time with them. The Families and Work Institute recently found that both partners in about 78% of marriages have to work to keep up with their bills. Unfortunately, the push for both parents to work full-time has left the modern family drained and tired. Nearly 40% of people in the study claimed that they were exhausted at the end of each day. This left little energy for playing with children or cleaning the house. About 70% of those working parents also felt that they weren't spending adequate time with their children because of work.
If you would like to supplement your family's income without giving up on staying home with the kids, you should look into the various home business franchises. Both moms and dads can take advantage of these business opportunities. Working from home can help you find a healthier balance between work and family time and many of these franchises are flexible, allowing you to work as much or as little as you want. You can set your own hours and change your schedule if your family needs more attention during specific months of the year. Joining a franchise team also gives you the security of a proven business model.
Many stay-at-home moms also love joining with a franchise because they become the boss. They don't have to ask for time off or try to justify the needs of their family. Most franchise systems are happy to put you in charge of your success. You can re-enter the workforce without sacrificing your home life by starting your own business. If you are ready to begin the search for the perfect opportunity, start in these markets:
- Online franchises: You could sell products or services with the power of the internet.
- Services: Provide decorating advice, cleaning services, marketing help or anything else you have the skills for without trying to build your own brand.
- Vending machines: Spend just a few hours each week outside the home while collecting hundreds or thousands of dollars per month.
- Child-related services: Teach a class in creativity, learn the fine art of portrait photography or care for other children in your own home.
Starting your own business can be difficult, even when you have unlimited funding and all the time in the world to dedicate to it, so using a well-tested system can save you hundreds of hours of wasted time and money.
