"I have felt it & I have held it, I have known, A Woman's Love. I have tasted & I have wasted, A woman's love. " - Alan Jackson

Well, I’m not wasting this opportunity. Recently I was studying Chad Rissenan’s $9 Solution to online marketing and work at home business building. Chad recommends joining a forum called WAHM, but does not say what that acronym stands for.

As one who believes in following directions I didn’t question it, I just did it. After a while I started feeling like I had accidently walked into the ladies room and it finally hit me. WAHM is short for Work at Home Moms! I was completely embarrassed at first that I had introduced myself. The post had already been made and there was no turning back. I was a WAHM.

The beautiful part of it is that I was welcomed with opened arms! Sure there was a little ribbing and kidding but it was all in good fun. The nice ladies there said that I could be a Work at Home Man and it was all good. In fact, they said there were others like me but I didn’t see any mugs like mine in the forum.

The site/forum was founded by Cheryl Demas who started working at home in 1994. It is a byproduct of early postings in her transition from being a working-mom to work-at-home mom as she describes it in her welcome message.

7 Reasons Why WHAM Works

Reason #1: The site is there to help people and not sell them. Cheryl drives that point home on several places and makes it clear what the purpose of each message board is. There are places to sell and there are places not to.

Reason #2: Cheryl has a private forum for anyone who wants to speak with her directly. No one else can reply in that message board and she has an open "cyber door" policy.

Reason #3: Question of the Week - In this forum, Cheryl kicks it off with a question of the week and everyone chimes in with their 2 cents. There are light-hearted questions and serious topics. It really is interesting to hear responses in this board.

Reason #4: Business Advice & Business Topics - This forum is to offer assistance, not to sell things. There are tons of topics on just about anything from online marketing to where to find business cards to how to set up a signature file.

Reason #5: Prayers and Good Thoughts Requests - Earlier in Reason #1, I said that WAHM was there to help people and it is never more evident in this message board. Everyone at some point or another has need for prayer and guidance and this is the forum for it. People reach out here for prayer and support and they find an abundance of it.

Reason #6: Article Directory - There is a whole section on choosing a business and determining which business is a good fit for you. Examples of topics include:

*Working From Home - Have You Got What it Takes?

*Should I stay home go back to work or both?

* Ten Tips for Choosing the right Direct Sales Business.

* Home Business Ideas

*Work At Home Scams - Don’t Be a Victim

and several others.

Reason #7: Tons of Other Useful Links - There are just too many things to list but some notable examples are: Jane’s Advice (a Dear Abby type place), Recipes for WAHMs, WAHM Undercover (Scams Revealed), Business Opportunity Classified Ads, WAHM Cartoons, Find WAHMs Near You, and much more.

Why listen to me any longer? Go see for yourself what’s at WAHM.
