“She apparently works from home”…

So, you say you want a ‘work from home’ job?

If you ask 3 out of 4 members of my household, they will tell you I either don’t work or they are not sure what I do for work. The confusion generally stems from the fact that I am a full time mum, maid and chef. According to most, people who do that simply “do not work”.

Like most work from home mums my career holds very little value against my partners. Daddy goes to work at set hours every day – mummy doesn’t. Daddy sometimes works 6 days a week – mummy doesn’t. Sound familiar? Sadly, I am not surprised.

Errands, housework, school, shopping, cooking – the list goes on and on. These are all tasks handed to the stay at home person … let’s now just totally drop the “work” from that sentence.

How on earth do stay at home working mums manage to contribute to the financial stability of the household, if they do not work? This is a question that has always baffled me. Ask a ‘working’ member of the household and you may, if you are lucky, get a shoulder shrug. The truth is, people still believe making an income from home is ‘make believe’. And, for one simple reason … they can’t do it!

I personally believe a wonderful work life balance is available to everybody – absolutely everybody.

However! One must first understand and embrace the word COMPROMISE.

Lower your outgoings and find the right industry, and you may just be on your way to earning a perfectly adequate income from home.

Buyer beware! It’s not as glamorous as you may think.

Written by a stay at home mummy who would kill for a few peaceful productive hours in an office – or a phone box. I’m not fussy.

Business or Blobby?

20170210_123318What is a Blobby?

A Blobby is quite simply a Blog driven by hobby. It is a digital feed that has no other purpose than bringing joy and happiness to the ‘Blobber’.

On the other end of the spectre is a Business blog.

I find its a good idea to occassionally sit down with paper and pen to nut out what it is that is driving your blog.

If it’s cold hard cash- your blog is a business.

Here is a quick 1-2-3 to remind you of the intention of your blog.

  1. Do you blog withan intention to encourage or build cash flow?
  2. Are you blogging to boost awareness of a product/service?
  3. Is your blog a portfolio of your skills/talents/qualifications?

If you answered yes to two or more of the above, your blog is most certainly a business.

Now be honest, are you treating it like one?

Are you hoping for a business but acting like a blobby?
