Anyone who has ever tried to accomplish any Non-Parenting activity as a Stay at Home Parent can tell you that easier said than done is an understatement! However, in today's increasingly difficult economy, many Stay at Home Parents are faced with new challenges and pressures.

There are many sources of these challenges. Your spouse may be facing a layoff or downsizing. If the “breadwinner" is in a sales job, you don't need me to tell you that the current economy can have a serious impact on your household income. Anyone working in the Automotive, Real Estate or Mortgage industries has been dealing with the loss of stability for some time now.

So what can you do to take some of the pressure off your Husband or Wife? Don't run out and apply at Wal-Mart just yet. Nobody wants to jeopardize their time with their kids. You don't want to deal with a latch-key program, or worse yet, full time day care!

If you can learn to budget your time and make good use of what you have available, you can create a substantial income from your computer. You need to focus your attention for the time you have. If you have toddler age kids, you can work at nap-time. If you have school age kids, you have a little more time to work with, and can get a little more done. Whatever amount of time you are working with, you need to make sure you are staying on task, staying focused, and getting your goals accomplished. Here is a list of where to start building an income from home:

  • Research Opportunities that Interest You
  • Ask Questions! Find out as Much as you Can about the Opportunity
  • Make Sure You are going to get the Support you'll need to Shorten the Learning Curve
  • If you Choose a Home Business Opportunity, Make Sure the Support Includes a Detailed Marketing Plan

There are literally Thousands of different opportunities out there to Work from Home or Build a Home Based Business. The industry is Exploding right now, with thousands of people joining a home business everyday. I would do a fairly targeted Google Search. Search for things that interest you. Odds are that you'll be able to find a business opportunity related to your interests.

Once you find a couple opportunities that you're interested in, do some more targeted searches and research the opportunities until you are comfortable. You should also be screening people as sponsors while you are researching. You'll want to make sure people are available to talk to you and answer your questions. This will tell you something about how available they will be to you after you join them in their business.

You are also going to want to ask questions about marketing the business. When you build an Online Business, Marketing is the most important skill you will need to learn. Internet Marketing is a skill, and finding someone to teach you Real World Marketing Skills will enable you to build your business Like a Science.
