Home Businesses For The Stay-At-Home Parent


Visitors: 129

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.

" E-commerce site - This is your garden variety online product site. Find a product and set up a nifty point-of-sale system with a merchant account and you can sell that product around the clock, to people around the world. All you need to do is ship the product to the people where ever they are in the world.

" Do professional work - Jobs are out there for medical transcription, audio transcription, general typing work, bookkeeping and other professional-related tasks. If you even have a little experience in these areas and want to make a few extra dollars in your spare time, companies are always looking for reliable people to outsource this type of work.

You can find the right work from home opportunity for you, mainly because there are hundreds to choose from. Find the one that works with your hours, your desired income and your interests and you can enjoy the benefits of maintaining the work / life balance and still earn a nice income at a home business.
