Creating Daily Balance as a Work at Home Mom

When you work for someone else, and you’re able to do that work from home, there is someone holding you accountable. There are tasks you’re expected to do and likely a regular paycheck coming in.

You probably have work hours: you know when to start and you know when your work day will end. Though this may not always be the case, working for someone else, from home, tends to have boundaries that come with it.

When you work for yourself however, you may not realize how easy it is to either work too much or not enough. Over the last year I have met so many moms who work from home while their kids are at home.

Working at home. With Kids.

What I failed to realize is that there is a whole world of working moms, many of whom are bloggers and entrepreneurs who are working at home while their kids or there. Or, while their kids or napping. And probably also after their kids go to bed.

I am one of these moms. Working from home can be hard to understand if you haven’t done it. And, if you’re self-employed or run your own business your work days may be far from what you envision.
