  • I work at home with Internet CEO Moms. I have two little girls ages 3 and 5 months. When I first started working from home it was really difficult to balance everything and it seemed like my 3 year old was constantly fighting for my attention. I really had to start planning when I was going to work and make sure I knew what my kids were going to be doing at the scheduled times. I usually put 20-30 hours a week into my home business.
    There is a great article on my blog about this very subject if you'd like to check it out.

  • I still send my kids to daycare. I have production standards to meet, conference calls to attend, phone calls to make and I can't get anything done to the best of my abilitiy if my kids (5 and 3) are there. I am not a good mom b/c I just want them to be quiet and I am not a good employee b/c I am too worried about what they are doing. But that is just what worksfor me.

  • We own our own business, so I work whenever I want. I take advantage of naptimes and bedtime.

  • I work at home as a Nutraceutical Rep with Juice Plus. I work about 20 hours a week and I just fit it in around my family. I talk with people everywhere I go because the subject of health always comes up in conversation. My job really doesn't feel like work at all and the reason I love it is because it doesn't dictate with my life.
