Getting Real With Shadra Bruce

When you’re raising kids, your priority as moms and dads is to make sure you provide them with the best care. This often means mom staying home, eking by on one income, and making financial sacrifices. With the recent twists and turns that have occurred in the economy, you may feel trapped between keeping the outside job and paying huge daycare costs and quitting your job and not knowing where the next meal will come from.  It’s not a pleasant place to be, but more and more families are finding themselves in just such a predicament. What many moms don’t realize is that they have the opportunity to work from home and make money online without having to sacrifice the most important job: being mom.


Regardless of what kind of work from home option you decide to explore, the great thing about moms working from home is the ability you have to set your own schedule. Need to squeeze work into early morning hours before the kids wake up and afternoon nap time? No problem! When it comes to making money on the internet, you have all the flexibility you need to work around the other demands in your life. As long as you are self-disciplined enough to use the time you do have available to you, you can be successful.

Inexpensive Start Up

For moms who want to work from home, one of the most attractive reasons is that it is relatively inexpensive to get started; often costing less than it would cost to pay a daycare to keep your child while you work outside of the home.  Imagine the feeling of waking up each day knowing you can contribute financially to your household while still providing the best possible care to your children. It’s empowering and motivating.

It Starts with Believing in You

When you decide to work from home, you have to take a deep breath and commit yourself. You have to decide that you will be successful, enlist the support of your family, and have enough discipline to stick with it. Being able to set your own schedule and work around you kids’ needs makes for easy motivation, but moms need to be able to believe in their ability to be successful, too.

There is no such thing as getting rich quick; you can get rich, but it will take time, effort, and dedication. You won’t be successful if you don’t believe you can be successful.
