Anyone own their own business?

What's your business? Does it allow you to be home with your kids more often than not?

  • My husband and I own a gift basket business. Most people assume we work for LaBella Baskets, but we don't. We're not a direct sales company or a franchise. We own our own company, and yes I work from home.

  • I am in the process of opening up my own business. It is taking a bit longer to do it than I had planned, but I hope to open up in the Fall about a month before Thanksgiving. My business is an errand service business and when I first start out I will still have to work my full time job but I am hoping to be able to eventually quit my job. Once I can do that then yes, it will give me more time with my family.

  • I am co-owner with my husband. I still work outside the house, because we have a recording studio and he's the one who knows how to do it! He also teaches martial arts, so he is the one who stays home with our daughter, it's nice being able to have one of her parents with her all the time, and only having to get a babysitter when we want to go out, even if I'm not the one who gets to be home :)

  • My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. We work our schedules around our daughter.

  • I work from home, some weeks are busier than others, but for the most part I am home and can raise my children.
