Quoting sarahrockssocks: I actually already have an account "irocksocks" but when I updated my Internet app on my phone it logged me out so I tried to reset my password and it's saying I don't have an account or I put in the wrong email?? Is there anyway to fix it?

Hello, I need help to know which forum / where it's best to post this question:

HOW do new parents successfully operate a home business with a baby?!

Just before the baby came, we were getting into real estate investing, which involves A LOT of networking, talking on the phone, going in-person to real estate meetup groups, attending seminars, driving, talking to homeowners, walking properties, searching records at the County Recorder's Office, etc. etc. etc.  HOW can I do all this with a baby who may start fussing, crying, needing to be breastfed, needing a nap, etc.?

By the way, I don't have daycare.  My job (HR Manager) was the money-maker, but now I'm unemployed and intend to be a stay-at-home mom and do real estate investing full-time.  My husband still works his job to keep the health insurance going and cover most of the bills.  The rest of the bills are being paid from my savings, so we really need to find a way I can do this real estate investing.  

So far, I've been told I cannot bring baby to real estate meetups, so OK - I found a go-around for that.  Instead, I've been networking with the attendees via email, phone, and some want to meet me at a cafe to discuss real estate investing in person.  Some meetup organizers will share the presentation info with me on the phone. 

BUT, as for tring to meet with people, talk on the phone, etc. -- well, I just can't do it  half the time.  Someone calls to meet, and the baby happens to be napping.  Someone wants to talk, but the baby's crying.  There's a networking opportunity, but the baby's teething is too bad that day.  

Again, I don't have daycare.  Not that I don't have people who have offered, but they're not physically able to watch a baby safely (I've had people fall asleep...not be able to pick up baby because of their bad back...make bad judgements and the baby got hurt...) so no.  I'll watch him.  He goes with me everywhere, and I wear him in a carrier.

But this is seriously hard.  How do other mom's do this?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome! 

You might also try asking the moms on the Working Moms  group, too - I'm sure there are moms there who are struggling with this same issue. :) 

Let me know if you have any more questions. 

have a nice daySteph
