For a long time the home / life balance was skewed in favor of families opting for two incomes and all of the wonderful things that could afford them. Unfortunately, in some cases it came at the expense of family life. Gradually there has been a hybrid developed - a better work / life balance while still having two incomes to draw from.
One way of doing that is having work at home opportunities for the stay at home parent. They are out there, and it they can be very successful in creating a side income even when rearing the children on a day-to-day basis. Work can be done in while kids are napping or even for a couple of hours at night - and most are so flexible they can be done just when the parent has time.
Here are 4 great home businesses for stay at home parents:
" Travel package sales - If you know a lot of people who like to travel, then this might be a great opportunity for you. Many stay at home parents are setting up travel packages just like the local travel agent - and doing it from home for a tidy profit.
" Product sales - We're not talking door-to-door cold calling here, but stalwart products such as Tupperware ™ and Discovery Toys ™ and your local candle dealer are ready for new recruits all of the time. There are dozens of great home sales opportunities out there for the right person and you can have the parties as time for a break from the kids or right in your own home.
